New Jersey Governor Chris Christie says he has “no second thoughts” about placing an involuntary quarantine on Kaci Hickox, a nurse who has tested negative for Ebola, not once, but twice. The Republican governor doesn’t seem to understand why the decision has been met with so much antagonism.
“There’s been all kinds of malarkey about this. She was inside the hospital in a climate-controlled area with access to her cellphone, access to the interview, and takeout food from the best restaurants in Newark,” Christie insists. “She was doing just fine.”
