Last night MSNBC host Rachel Maddow described New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's keynote speech at the RNC as “one of the most remarkable acts of political selfishness” (video below).

Maddow added: “This was Chris Christie accepting the nomination of the Republican Party for 2016 because Mitt Romney wasn’t even interesting enough to talk about in the keynote address that is supposed to be for Mitt Romney’s nomination,” reports Mediaite.com.

 “This speech not only I think was a bad speech, I think that this was one of the most remarkable acts of political selfishness I have ever seen on a stage this big.”

“This was a 2,600-word speech in which he used nearly 1,800 of those words before he first said the name ‘Mitt Romney.' And as soon as he said Mitt Romney, he went back to talking about himself for hundreds more words.”

“I find this speech to have been totally shocking, completely opposite to what I expected.”
