Chris Christie Has Another Reason to Cry Over Bruce Springsteen Thanks to Jimmy Fallon
Jimmy Fallon hit a real sweet spot on Tuesday night's episode of Late Night with his "Born to Run" parody of New Jersey governor Chris Christie's "bridgegate" scandal. Outfitted in a cutoff denim vest, bandana, and a ridiculous wig, Fallon sang about shutting down the "tollbooths of glory" before he was joined by the real deal. The Boss.
"Let me wrap my legs 'round your mighty ribs and relieve your stressful condition," Springsteen sang, adding that he Chris Christie's "little Jersey traffic jam" was preventing him from taking a leak.
This is bound to hit Christie where it hurts, as he's an avowed Springsteen fan who claims he's been to over 100 of his concerts. He also told the press that he did "a lot of weeping" after he met Springsteen at a Hurricane Sandy fundraising concert and got a hug.
