Governor Chris Christie spoke out Wednesday morning on the Today Show here on NBC40, telling Matt Lauer that New Jersey could give Washington D.C.'s lawmaker's a seminar on working together.
In the interview, the two touched on many subjects including gun control, his relationship with President Obama and Christie's strong comments ripping House Republicans and Speaker John Boehner for not voting on legislation providing aid to victims of Hurricane Sandy.
"Sandy is and was above politics, in every other element except what happened in Congress a week ago. So what I was trying to point out very clearly was, there are people suffering in New Jersey, there are people suffering in New York and they need to be taken care of," the Governor said during the interview.
Christie went on to say that the Republicans gave in on raising taxes, adding that now's the time for the president to give in on spending cuts.
Also revealed on the Today Show Wednesday morning was Christie on the cover of Time Magazine.
The cover picture is drawing controversy from Italian–American groups who say the picture is unflattering and the words "the boss" make Christie appear like a mob boss.
Christie laughed it off, saying the cover is "not kind" and that the only reason he's getting this attention is because he's doing his job well.
