Donald Trump said Tuesday that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is "one email away from a disaster," as a result of the ongoing "Bridgegate" scandal.

"He's a friend of mine. He's a good guy. But you know, he's one email away from a disaster," Trump said while speaking at Saint Anselm College. "I just don't know what's going to happen.

"It was bad for him," he continued. "It didn't make sense, and he said strongly he didn't know anything about it. The thing is, he's fired four or five people. I don't know what they're going to say. It's a very scary situation for Chris. We'll see how he handles it. It's really a question that won't be able to be answered probably for a year. It's a tough situation for him no question about it."

Later, when asked about prospective 2016 Republican presidential candidates, Trump said he would have thought Christie was "doing well," but now "it's going to be a lot tougher on him."

Doesn't Trump know when to keep his big mouth shut? I mean really, People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones..He's gone bankrupt and had enough of his own financial whoas so it's like calling the kettle black. Keep your nose out of where it doesn't belong Donald..Go find a new hair stylist!!

The 'Trump pattern' begins; He adds fuel to Christie's fire as a hedge to nudge him into the spotlight for 2016 presidential contention as a candidate but all along it's just a ploy to advertise his 'Celebrity Apprentice' freak show. It's a moldy, stupid, same old circus-story that has run out of fuel .
