Cute as always, Joan.
During his press conference today, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said he was “blindsided” by a call informing him of the “Bridgegate” documents after his Wednesday morning workout.
Governor Chris Christie says he found out about emails from staffer who saw article in The Bergen Record. Was told while working out.

Christie had plenty more to say about trust, accountability and taking full responsibility, but here’s what some in the media heard:
Christie: something something I work out something

That tweet was from the same Politico reporter who embraced the #Bridgeghazi hashtag in an article yesterday.
Other “real journalists” couldn’t resist jumping on the workout remark.
Many viewers were blindsided by the fact Christie was working out

What was on Christie’s playlist when he was working out?

Among Christie's mistakes: Creating an opening for a new round of fat jokes by linking his learning of emails to completing his workout…

Or lapdog bait?
Chris Christie mentioning at his press conference that he was working out when he learned of the scandal is the greatest trolling ever.
