At this point, we really feel a little bad for Chris Christie—he might be a political bully with backwards views on social reforms, but he's also a human being with feelings. And sometimes these feelings take the form of delusions, such as his ongoing delusion that he and his favorite musician, Bruce Springsteen, are best friends. Christie got into an argument at a town hall meeting yesterday with a woman who claimed that Springsteen had asked Christie to stop using his music at political events. Christie's response: NA NA NA I CAN'T HEAR YOU NA NA NA.
Here's his actual response, which isn't much more eloquent (via Daily Intel): "No. Never did that. Nah, you’re wrong about that. Bruce has never asked me to do that. I saw Bruce about a week and a half ago. And he had every opportunity to tell me not to. He didn’t and he never has," Christie said. "Bruce has never asked me to do that."
Here's the rest of that glorious exchange:
"Nah, listen. I know him, and you’re wrong. I understand you’re now expressing your politics. You’re now expressing your politics and your objection, and that’s fine. Don’t put it in Mr. Springsteen’s mouth — put it in yours.
I know Bruce and I spoke to Bruce and you’re wrong. When I leave, just so we can have this lady be a little calmer, let’s play Bon Jovi on the way out."
To recap: Christie has seen Springsteen perform more than 130 times. He has (unsuccessfully) begged Springsteen to play his inauguration. He's sung "Thunder Road" with Jimmy Fallon. He has hugged The Boss once (a hug he gushed about on The Daily Show), and he wept after meeting him. And Springsteen has returned all that affection by making fun of him on national television.
And yet still, there's only one man who Christie would go gay for, were he gay (and ya know, were gay marriage legal in his state).
