On Monday, Chris Christie told Megyn Kelly his very public “bear hug” with Obama before the 2012 election did not hurt Mitt Romney.
Author and columnist Charles Krauthammer would disagree.
Krauthammer says the embrace was more like a lap dance than a hug.
Republican pundit Charles Krauthammer said that when Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie embraced President Barack Obama after Hurricane Sandy a week before the 2012 presidential election, he was essentially giving Obama a lap dance.

“I think many Republicans are extremely upset with what was described in the press as giving Obama a bear hug,” Krauthammer said on Sunday in a debate with Obama strategist David Plouffe, according to Politico. “I saw it slightly differently, I thought it was more of like a lap dance. Not a phrase I would use on television, since the image is too disturbing.”
