Appearing on CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360," Giuliani argued the bridge scandal doesn't reflect negatively on Christie's leadership because every administration deals with such setbacks.

"Politically stupid things, political pranks that turn bad, all that other stuff, every administration -- don't tell me this doesn't happen in the Obama administration, the Clinton administration, the Bush administration," he said.

In a lengthy press conference Thursday, Christie denied any knowledge of his administration's involvement in last year's lane closures on the bridge before emails connecting one of his closest aides to the scandal became public.
