New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) on Sunday poked fun of Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign while responding to a question about the the vice presidential vetting process described in the new book ‘Double Down.’

“First off, political advice from people who ran the Romney campaign is probably something nobody should really give a darn about,” Christie said on ABC’s “This Week.” 

Christie said he didn’t the book seriously, especially since Romney spoke out and called Christie “impressive.”

“But listen to Governor Romney, and what Governor Romney said when he spoke last week was that none of this caused him any pause at all, and so I’ll take Mitt Romney’s interpretation of all this, rather than some, you know, paid political consultant who was, you know, trying to make himself famous obviously in the book,” Christie said.
