Facebook Co-Founder Chris Hughes Isn’t Thrilled Mark Zuckerberg Is Hosting A Chris Christie Fundraiser

As if he doesn’t have enough to worry about with his relaunch of The New Republic, Chris Hughes, the openly gay co-founder of Facebook, found out that his former colleague Mark Zuckerberg is hosting a fundraiser for Republican Governor Chris Christie.

“I, for one, have a lot of questions about Chris Christie, particularly because less than a year ago he vetoed a marriage-equality bill in the New Jersey state legislature,” Hughes, 29, said in an interview on ABC’s This Week. “There are tens of thousands of couples in New Jersey that can’t share their love and be recognized under the law because of that decision. I’m not a single-issue voter—and I think most people aren’t, either—but for me personally, it would raise serious concerns about supporting someone like him.”

    Rather than bitch about what Zuckerberg does, Chris Hughes should shut up and host his own fundraiser. That’s how politics works—not by whining.

  • 1EqualityUSA

    Every time I see Zuckerberg’s pouty, mealy mouth, I’ll think of the obese bigot he sponsored. What a wipe.

    @BJ McFrisky: If you bother to check, you’ll find that Huges is actually quite politically involved — including fund-raising. And since when did making a public comment on a political issue become de facto “whining?”

  • BJ McFrisky

    @Aidan8: Put very simply, anyone who “objected” to George Clooney holding multiple fundraisers for Barack Obama would likewise have been labeled a whiner, yes? Would’ve seemed a childish complaint, yes? Ergo, complaining about a political fundraiser, simply because you don’t like the object of the fundraising, is whining.

    There’s a massive campaign to decimate Zuckerberg underway, I won’t divulge details but he’s pissed off the hive and they’re tearing his mods up for arse paper right now.

    Can’t wait for the c*nt to get the fuck kicked out of him.

  • 1EqualityUSA

    Maybe he cut a deal with that slab o’ bacon and said, “Support marriage equality and I’ll support your campaign.” (???)

    Republicans are starting to realize that they are on the wrong side of history.

    (Or) they can go on spewing hate and excluding everyone from women to any color, but white, and just redistrict their way into the White House, trampling over democracy with craven, unprincipled tyranny. With Zuckerberg’s money, they sure could do a mound of damage. I will never forget this human stain. He’s right up there with Nancy “wiggle” Elliott of New Hampshire, Princeton’s Robert P. George, Maggie Gallagher and “all the rest, here on Gallagher’s Isle.” I needed a name starting with “Z” to complete the set anyway.

    @BJ McFrisky: So were you planning on hosting a fundraiser or do you prefer to just whine about what Chris Hughes is doing? You don’t have double standards do you?

  • Daniel-Reader

    They need a fundraiser to get his fat ass on a massive diet and exercise plan. How many tax dollars are going to shovel truckloads of food into his oversized piehole? He is a piss poor role model for children in the USA. How much are taxpayers paying for his health insurance? Dear lord almighty. No doubt the Sandy aid money went to keeping the food supply trucks rolling to his doorstep. It’s like looking at an obese police officer and wondering why taxpayers have to pay for that.

    Education doesn’t need to come at such a cost to fellow Americans. Zuckerberg could figure out another joker to push his education measures, one that isn’t a bigot. What kind of education is that for America’s youth?

  • 2eo

    @1EqualityUSA: He’s made billions off a product he stole, selling information to right wing companies. He fits right in with the GOP.

    Lets not forget that Facebook was caught selling profile information of left wing leaning citizens of the USA to Blackwater.

  • samwise343

    @BJ McFrisky: Hughes was expressing an opinion. People who live in the USA can do that when they have a First Amendment right. Think, McFrisky, think.

  • Patsy Stoned

    LOL Charlie in Charge. Snap!

    And Zuckerberg might want to re-think any alliance with Christie. He’s nothing more than the Rex Ryan of politics. All bluster and bragging, and nothing to back it up.

  • boring

    And the grotesque shock of a young bazillionaire with enough money to punch God in the face sponsoring a republican candidate erupted through absolutely nowhere, sending absolutely no one reeling in horror.

    No, seriously, what a shock.

  • Aidan8

    @boring: LOL
