Republican presidential candidate and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Sunday that rival Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)’s comment about the winter storm showed “a real immaturity.”

The Blaze had reported that Rubio joked about the blizzard saying that the winter storm was good because it had prevented agencies from issuing new regulations.

Christie responded during an interview with CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“Well, that’s a difference between a United States senator who has never been responsible for anything and a governor who is responsible for everything
that goes on in your state. Fourteen people died across the country,” Christie said. “And that shows a real immaturity from Senator Rubio to be joking as
families were freezing in the cold, losing power, and some of them
losing their loved ones.”
