Gov. Christie on Hobby Lobby: 'Who knows?'

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) avoided weighing in on the Supreme Court’s controversial decision to exempt some employers from providing birth control based on religious objections.

Asked on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” about his opinion on the 5-4 decision in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby issued Monday, Christie replied, “Who knows?”

"The fact is that when you're an executive, your Supreme Court makes a ruling, and you've got to live with it, unless you can get the legislative body to change the law or change the Constitution," he said.

"The point is: Why should I give an opinion as to whether they were right or wrong? At the end of the day, they did what they did," Christie continued. "That's now the law of the land, unless people in the legislative branch try to change it."
