For those of you living in New Jersey, you undoubtedly know your own Governor Chris Christie, a man who has record low approval ratings. For those living in the rest of the country, you still probably know of Christie, the presidential candidate who almost became President Trump’s VP after Trump won the primaries. Regardless, Christie has gone from being one of the most favorable governors in the country to being the most disapproved in just a little over a year.
This past weekend, Christie’s reputation took yet another hit, as he was spotted lounging on a chair at the Governor’s home at Island Beach State Park. This came at the same time that many NJ beaches were closed due to a government shutdown. Christie took much heat for the photos of him and his family sitting on the beach when others were not permitted to do so. With less than 6 months left in office, Christie probably doesn’t have much left to lose in terms of his political career, but his actions have led to the creation of some really entertaining memes.
People across the internet have photoshopped a variety of pictures, in order to place a lounging Christie in all sorts of situations, including shots of him lounging in the Oval Office, to shots of him sitting and soaking up the sun with the cast of ‘The Jersey Shore”.
