Twitter was ablaze with comments bashing Gov. Chris Christie Sunday after his awkward and weird celebration with Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, after Dallas beat Detroit to move on in the playoffs.

Earlier this morning the governor joined CBS Sports' Boomer and Carton radio show, where he is a regular guest and they discussed his celebration in Jerry Jones' private box. After some ribbing about how Jones dissed Christie when he tried to high five him, Boomer surprisingly expressed a thought that most of America felt watching him jump around like an idiot.

Boomer: I don't know just hugging Jerry Jones, is just so, I don't know, creepy.

Boomer and Carton are huge Chris Christie supporters and Republicans so if they are expressing these thoughts then how do you think most of the nation viewed his antics? If a highly visible politician is going to run for president, he/she usually doesn't act like a hyperventilating teenager on national television. To put it mildly and as Boomer explained, it was embarrassing seeing him hugging and grinding with a rich owner in his private box. It also highlights a level of elitism that doesn't help his every-man image either.
