During Gov. Chris Christie's own press conference, he was forced to explain to reporters and America, frankly, why he stood behind Donald Trump, during his presser, making faces, uncomfortable and looking like an idiot.

"No, I was not being held hostage," he said told reporters during a press conference in New Jersey. "No, I was not sitting up there thinking 'Oh my God, what have I done?'"

"I wasn't upset, I wasn't angry, I wasn't despondent," he said. "I wasn't anything other than happy that we had done as well as we had done that night, and listening to someone giving a press conference in front of the national press corps. "

Sure, we believe you, governor.
