New Jersey Governor Chris Christie introduced Donald Trump on Tuesday night with a rousing speech.
Just kidding. He seemed to be in a state of deep emotional pain.
Christie spoke briefly before ceding the stage to Trump, but remained behind him — not just for a few minutes, but for the whole address.
Christie may have been doing his best to appear as an ally to Trump, but his eyes told the truth.
The press conference spawned a hashtag — #FreeChrisChristie — that gave it even more momentum.
Christie has had a tough go of it lately. On Tuesday, six New Jersey newspapers called for Christie to step down as governor of the state — due to his support of Trump.
