Sean Hannity declared that the "anointment" of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie as the 2016 GOP presidential nominee following his re-election on Tuesday is "jumping the gun" — adding, "I don't know what the big appeal of Christie is, just based on the record."

He told listeners of his radio show on Wednesday: "It is hardly an economic boon or turnaround in the state of New Jersey, I can tell you that. [But] everybody is just going nuts thinking they have this thing figured out for 2016."

Hannity charged that Christie is "not in the mainstream of conservatism. Don't tell me this is going to be a cakewalk."

Referring to exit polls on Tuesday that showed Hillary Clinton beating Christie in 2016, Hannity said: "Chris Christie on his most popular day can't beat Hillary Clinton. That ought to be a warning sign to everybody who wants to put their anointment on this guy without even having a primary."

Hannity continued: "This governor has no idea what's going to hit him. All these liberal media people that want you to run, they are going to be your worst enemy when you get out there on the national campaign trail."

"And lecturing every conservative, as you are doing, is not going to endear them to you."

Hannity also dared Christie to call President Barack Obama a liar for claiming people would be able to keep their healthcare insurance plans if they wanted to.

"Has Chris Christie ever said Obama's a liar? Hey Chris, election's over. I dare you. I dare you," he said.

"I want to hear you say, 'Yeah, Barack Obama is a lair and he lied about his lies.'"
