New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) stole some of the attention on Tuesday night from Donald Trump’s early romp through Republican Super Tuesday contests — but for all the wrong reasons.
Christie’s appearance at Trump’s press conference brought about a whole new round of mockery against him on Twitter for looking less like a peer and former opponent for the real estate mogul and more like a sidekick, as seen below.

Chris Christie is like the bridge and tunnel dude hanging outside the roped off bottle service VIP section in the Manhattan club.

I almost feel sorry for Chris Christie, this is so humiliating. That's where a spouse would normally stand.

Christie looks like Luca Brazzi standing behind Trump.

I can't believe Chris Christie is standing behind Trump like his house boy. I hope getting pounded like this feels good. #SuperTuesday

It's a grim time, but watching Chris Christie at this presser almost makes it worthwhile
