Christie Has No Regrets About Whitney Houston Flag Order

 

Governor Christie says he received dozens of negative emails about his decision to lower state, and American flags in New Jersey after the death of pop star Whitney Houston, but “I have absolutely no second thoughts about it – I would do exactly the same thing again.”

The Governor – speaking after a town hall meeting in Palisades Park – said the emails displayed “some ugly stuff in America…really ugly the references that were made to her – to a person that was suffering from a disease and I think it’s awful…I had people sending me emails calling her a crack ho- and how could I lower the flag of New Jersey and the United States for a crack ho? I mean I think that’s reprehensible.”

Christie also said making such a comment is “awfully disrespectful to her memory, awfully disrespectful to the things she contributed to our society – and awfully disrespectful to someone who suffered from a disease…drug addiction is a disease – and we need to start dealing with the underlying disease and stop calling people names – that’s not what’s going to make them better.”

 

 

The 48-year-old pop star – who was known to have substance abuse problems – was found dead in a Beverly Hills California hotel February 11th. She was laid to rest last weekend in the Garden state.
