White knighting in the recent GOP debate

Article here. Excerpt:

'At the debate, Christie furiously defended fellow GOP candidate Nikki Haley, the former U.N. ambassador, after she was attacked by Ramaswamy onstage.

'It's not me forming an alliance with Nikki Haley,' Christie told CNN's Dana Bash.

'Look, I am a truth teller, Dana. And I am going to tell the truth. If someone is insulting Nikki Haley in a way that was personal. It was nothing about issues. He said she is not smart enough to know where things on the map, that somehow his 3-year-old son is smarter than a woman who served as a two-term governor and U.N. Ambassador.'

He argued that he defended her because she is an 'accomplished woman and worked incredibly hard both in South Carolina and in the U.N.'

'And I think that Vivek does have a woman problem,' the ex-governor said. 'I do think he insults women's basic intelligence. He has done it over and over and over again. And I guess tonight I just had had enough. I had enough of listening to his garbage.'

Christie had knocked Ramaswamy's 'smart*ss Harvard mouth' and did so again during his time on CNN.'
