Twitter goes nuts over Chris Christie's reaction to Donald Trump's victory speech
By the time presidential candidate Donald Trump took the stage for a victory speech in Palm Beach, Florida, he had already been declared the winner of five key primaries on Super Tuesday.
But on Twitter, everyone was focused on the face of Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey.
Christie looked less than enthusiastic throughout Trump's speech. Twitter was quick to notice, with thousands of users commenting on Christie's unusually stern expression.
