Christie Keeps Hitting Rubio: Clinton Would ‘Eat Him Alive’ On Debate Stage

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Monday that Democratic presidential candidate Hilary Clinton would eat his rival Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) alive if the two were to go head-to-head in the general election.

“You can’t put an amateur on the debate stage,” Christie told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell. “She will eat him alive.”

Rubio came in third place after the Iowa caucuses last week, but during Saturday’s Republican presidential debate Christie questioned whether he had sufficient experience to be commander-in-chief. He alleged that Rubio gave “scripted” speeches, and the Florida senator only added fuel to that fire by repeating the same line about President Barack Obama not knowing “what he’s doing” four times over the course of the debate.

“After Saturday night, it’s very very hard to come to the same conclusion that he belongs on the same stage as Hillary Clinton,” Christie told Mitchell.
