The WaPo, on Chris Christie’s silent appearance at Donald Trump’s press conference:
Chris Christie has seen things. Things you wouldn’t believe. Things that would make your hair fall out and turn grey all at once. But he cannot speak of them. He can only stand there. Chris Christie is the bearer of a hideous knowledge that hangs on him like a horrible weight. But he has no way to say it.
He is embroidering this hideous truth very slowly onto a handkerchief, but it will not be ready in time.
Chris Christie must stand and watch as his city is overrun with Imperial troops and his friends are frozen in carbonite.
Chris Christie has the glazed and terrified look of someone who has traded his inheritance for no pottage at all, who has watched his credibility dry up and is about to be led back to his basement cage, having lost Winterfell for good.
Chris Christie is realizing that the steak he gets to eat inside the Matrix is not worth this.
Chris Christie has made a yuge mistake.
Donald Trump won at least seven states on Super Tuesday. His path to the nomination is clear.
Chris Christie has no mouth, but he must scream.
