Speaking to a sparse audience at CPAC on Thursday, former Fox News contributor Dick Morris cracked a joke about Gov. Chris Christie, who was not invited to speak at the conference.

"After Barack let him ride on Air Force One, he gave him an ice cream cone," Morris said.

The famously inaccurate pundit was presumably alluding to a ride Obama and Christie took together to tour devastation in New Jersey stemming from Hurricane Sandy. Christie has gotten on the bad side of some conservatives for praising the president's handling of the disaster and its aftermath.
