Christie Dancing His Way To Father Of The Year - My9 New Jersey

Christie Dancing His Way To Father Of The Year

Posted: Updated:
Trenton, New Jersey (My9NJ) - Last week, Governor Christie appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. He came out on stage dancing to the song “The Bridge is Over” and participated in a spoof on “the evolution of dance” called “the evolution of dad dancing” where the governor showed off all kinds of moves from the “belt grabber” to the “lawn mower”. Now this was all in honor of the fact that Christie was awarded father of the year by the Father’s Day/Mother’s Day Council.

The parody seemed to all be in good fun and it looked like the Governor had a blast, but as light-hearted as his appearance may be, this does raise questions about the seriousness of Governor Christie’s plans to possibly run for President in 2016.

NJ Now host Jim McQueeney chimed in to discuss the New Jersey governor’s latest television appearance and what it means for his future.

“Look if you’re the governor’s handlers it’s a reasonable plan to sort of move out with whatever shards of a chance you have to run for the presidential primary to go out there and say business as usual,” he said.

McQueeney went on to say that Governor Christie has been criticized for a lot of things that he has done, and will continue to be as long as he remains in the spotlight.

Others believe that this appearance shows people that it is not always business and politics for him and that he has some balance and can also be fun. But is that what the people of the United States care about when it comes to voting for someone to run the country?

    The knockout game where young people randomly punch innocent bystanders to see if they can knock them unconscious has been relatively rare in New Jersey, until now. After three attacks in less than half an hour in a safe Hackensack neighborhood, some residents are concerned that this trend will pose potential problems for more New Jerseyans. Hackensack police are looking for a man caught on surveillance video who is suspected of the three separate assaults.
