Skip to comments.Chris Christie Wept Over Springsteen Hug

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie may have worked closely with President Obama in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, but it appears hes more emotionally invested in a different budding bromance. Christie admitted at a Monday briefing that he started weeping after he hugged Bruce Springsteen at NBCs telethon for Sandys victims Friday night, the Record reported.
We hugged, Christie said to a crowd of relief volunteers in Monmouth County on Monday, according to the Record. Yeah, we hugged and he told me its official-we're friends!'
Christie and Springsteen had met twice before, but their interactions had been limited to formal pleasantries, the Record noted. Their previously tense relationship may have stemmed from their opposing presidential preferencesChristie campaigned for GOP candidate Mitt Romney, while Springsteen was active in fundraisers for President Obama. Hurricane Sandys devastation, however, managed to bring the two Jersey boys together.
I told the President today actually that the hug was great and that when we got home there was a lot of weeping because of the hug, Christie said. And the President said, Why? I said, Well, to be honest, I was the one weeping, everyone else was fine.
Obama gave Christie another chance to interact with his musical hero on Monday, when he handed Springsteen the phone while discussing storm relief with the N.J. governor, the AP reported.
Christie hinted at the briefing that his newfound friendship with The Boss will continue to blossom in the near future.
Bruce has said hes going to be here to help the community in New Jersey as soon as he gets off tour, Christie said. So Im looking forward to spending some more time with him as we go forward.
Christie joked it was even better to talk to Springsteen on Monday than it was to talk to Obama.

“He probably would like to fellate Springsteen”
We know he did Obammy.
In 2016, if Crispy come anywhere near Pittsburgh, I’m travelling 2.5 hours to heckle his fat patoot.
So remember that, it might make the news.
Pittsburgh hecklers on Crispy. I’ve already got 2 takers.
Romney wept when Christy critter was hugging Obummer.
"I'll stab any Republican in the back for you.
For you. For you. Just give me more food."
Please let Christie run for the Democratic nomination in 2016
I think of the kind of leader’s we used to have like: Ike, McAuthur, Patton, Reagan....and then I look at CC, man.
I don’t know what’s wrong with ME, but I never did get Springsteen. The ugly bastard couldn’t SING his way out of a wet tissue paper teepee, to MY tastes! But hey, different strokes.....
I do NOT see what Ann Coulter saw in that fat slob of a man. I wonder what 0bama promised him if he did the huggy thingy or maybe bamster had some goods on this loud mouth gov and it was blackmail..pardon the pun...In any case that injudicious move hurt Romney badly.
They deserve each other. I am embarrassed by both of their actions. Bruce almost fainting in front of Obama. I wonder if these two knew what the outcome would be and how much involved they were.
I didn’t know any man THAT fat could even fine his Peeniwinkel, as our little grandson called it when he was learning to talk.
At his wt, he won’t live that long. His heart will not be able to take it.
I’ve wept over Springsteen ever since Born in the U.S.A. Since then, it’s been varying degrees of garbage from him. He sold out, and now supports leftists like Obama to make himself feel better about it.
What a disgusting fat POS.
He as no shame.
Disgusting liberal celebrity-lover.
Christie can drop dead as far as I’m concerned...spare me the false righteousness.
a male adult with rock star idolatry? How embarrassing for him. The fact that he’s an elected “leader”....how embarrassing for us.
