Earlier today, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie held a
love-fest town hall event with Donald Trump. Because clearly there was nothing more important or meaningful for him to have been doing at the time.
As was pointed out on Twitter, Gov. Christie is "interviewing" Donald Trump while the Lt. Governor is at a state trooper's funeral.

More from NJ.com:
TRENTON — Gov. Chris Christie will not attend the Monday funeral of the New Jersey State Trooper who was killed in the line duty last week, and will instead spend the day campaigning out of state for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Sean Cullen, 31, was responding to a car fire on I-295 last Monday when he was accidentally struck by a passing motorist. He died of his injuries a few hours later.
Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno was to attend the funeral instead. A spokesman for the governor declined to say why the governor would not be attending the funeral, or when he would be returning to New Jersey, referring all questions to the Trump campaign.
Can’t expect Christie to skip out on his full-time job for his part-time job https://t.co/rM97XOKWak

Now might be a good time to re-evaluate those priorities.

@MattFriedmanNJ unreal. Absolutely appalling.

If Chris Christie doesn’t want to be our Governor, let the LG take over full time. https://t.co/SVlLC8a3ww

So Chris Christie skipped the funeral of a state trooper to campaign with Trump. I now see why NJ loathes him.
