Republican governor nervously says he was just joking when he called Donald Trump ‘f***ing crazy’

During an appearance on CNN this Thursday, New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu was asked by host Alisyn Camerota if he would support Donald Trump if he wins the GOP nomination for president in 2024, despite the fact that he has attacked Trump in the past, RawStory reports.

“Do you commit to supporting the GOP nominee, whoever it is?” asked Camerota.

“Yes,” said Sununu. “I’m a Republican. I’m going to support the Republican nominee because I can guarantee they’re better than any of the Democrats that will likely sit in that presidential seat.”

“Even if it’s Donald Trump?” said Camerota.

“I don’t think it’s going to be Donald Trump, but yeah, I’m going to support the Republican nominee, to be sure,” said Sununu.

“Because I think that you did at a dinner call, Donald Trump, ‘effing crazy,'” said Camerota.

“Yeah, that was funny,” said Sununu. “It was a roast. It was a funny joke. Couple things — let’s take a step back. First, I don’t think Joe Biden will be the only nominee on the Democrat side. There’s no doubt the left wing isn’t going to hand over the next six years to that guy. There’s going to be challenges. There’s going to be a lot of politics to be played out. Again, if you’re saying I wouldn’t support the nominee because I made a joke at the roast, it was a good joke. I take pride in that, I got a lot of laughs.”

“No, it is a funny joke, but I mean, sometimes there’s a germ of truth to jokes,” said Camerota. “If it’s what you feel, why would you say you support him?”

“I made a lot of jokes about my own family, about Joe Biden and Jen Psaki. I make jokes about everybody,” said Sununu. “Look, the fact that you have so many politicians in this world that take themselves so seriously, everyone has lost a sense of humor, there’s no sense of lightening the mood a little bit. We have very serious jobs. But believe me, the job is a lot bigger than ourselves, okay? So the fact that someone might say something humorous or whatever doesn’t qualify or disqualify them from anything. Like I said, there’s a lot of politics to be played out.”
