Team Trump is going to owe Chris Christie another dinner for this one.

Appearing on the “Today Show,” the New Jersey Governor vehemently defended Melania Trump against the growing accusation of plagiarism.

Christie chalked it up to “common thoughts” and pointed out that “93 percent” of Melania’s speech didn’t resemble Michelle Obama’s at all.

Unfortunately for Christie, that excuse wasn’t good enough for a lot of people.

Christie also stopped by CNN to double-down in his defense saying, “I don’t belive that last night sounded like anything other than Melania Trump.”
