The famously outspoken Chris Christie gave the moderators at Wednesday’s Republican presidential debate a piece of his mind for not taking seriously the real problems facing the world when a question about the rapid growth of fantasy football companies was thrown out.
The question was actually given to former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, but Christie was so appalled, he couldn’t help but comment.
POLL: Which of the GOP candidates won CNBC’s Republican Primary Debate?
“Fantasy football?” he asked, and then ticked off a list of the real problems we’re facing, including the national debt, unemployment, and the rise of the Islamic State.
Christie tweeted a video clip of the exchange.
We have ISIS attacking us & we’re here talking about Fantasy Football? #CNBCGOPDebate https://t.co/v1pKSXovgc

Others agreed it was a dumb question, and Christie’s response was perfection.

It all makes one wonder: Where did CNBC come up with their questions?
