Christie, of course, dropped out of the presidential race and endorsed Trump when his own campaign fell apart early last month. And, well, it's not completely clear he has made peace with that.
First, behold Christie.

Once Trump took the stage, Twitter stepped in to annotate the, um, various things that Christie was doing with his face.
Christie standing behind Trump wondering if he will someday be permitted to call Trump by his first name. Trump calls Christie "Chris."— Brit Hume (@brithume) March 2, 2016
You could tell me Christie is a robot sent from the future to take out Trump, and based on this press conference, I would believe you.— Jim Tankersley (@jimtankersley) March 2, 2016
But even Twitter was, at times, at a near loss for words. Remember, these faces were happening in public, during a televised victory speech and or press conference.
Then, it got a little worse. Trump made a couple of casual references to New Jersey, Christie and others in that state moving to other places. Apparently, this isn't something about which Christie was ready for Mr. Trump to say.

Chris Christie must want to be Attorney General really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really bad.— Megan Carpentier (@megancarpentier) March 2, 2016
Just in case you missed the Christie frown up above, consider this close up.
And then, there were these thoughts brought to us by Twitter.

In all seriousness, Chris Christie looks so strange. Like he's about to vomit.— Emily Nussbaum (@emilynussbaum) March 2, 2016
I hope some day Chris Christie finds his forever-home.— pourmecoffee (@pourmecoffee) March 2, 2016
People were concerned. This is, after all, a sitting governor. Six New Jersey newspapers just published an editorial calling for Christie to resign or voters to initiate a recall. But still.
Gonna need Chris Christie to hold up a copy of today's newspaper to prove this is not a prerecorded hologram hostage video— Tim Mak (@timkmak) March 2, 2016
