The New Hampshire Union Leader confesses it was "wrong" to endorse Chris Christie in the state's primary — slamming the New Jersey governor for not "standing up to the bully" Donald Trump.

In an editorial, publisher Joseph McQuaid writes he'd thought Christie — who dropped out of the presidential primary race after finishing sixth in the Feb. 9 contest — "had the best chance to take on and face down Donald Trump."

"Watching Christie kiss the Donald's ring this weekend — and make excuses for the man Christie himself had said was unfit for the presidency — demonstrated how wrong we were," he writes.

"Rather than standing up to the bully, Christie bent his knee. In doing so, he rejected the very principles of his campaign that attracted our support."

He also claimed Christie promised him he'd never endorse Trump.

"If nothing else, that might wake up some Trump fans," McQuaid writes. "We will look for that, just as soon as we get the egg off our face."
