Twitter Responds To Chris Christie’s Latest ‘-Gate’: Beachgate

Beachgate: Chris Christie and family on beach

Just in time for Independence Day, Chris Christie ordered beaches closed across New Jersey due to a budget standoff. The Legislature failed to pass the budget, so the citizens face the holiday with closed tourist attractions and 40 state parks. Even campers had to leave. Yet 48 hours later, pictures surfaced of Christie and his family enjoying Island Beach State Park all to themselves. Certainly, it’s a move that indicates that Christie probably doesn’t care what he does now that his approval rating is the worst for any governor in any state poll ever, at 15% by Quinnipiac. Well, Twitter does seem to care, and the Twitterverse has been busy creating new ways to photoshop Christie in his beach chair into some very funny new contexts.

Enjoy some lighthearted humor and Happy Independence Day from American News X.

Incidentally, Christie can now add Beachgate to Coptergate, and Bridgegate. The lesser-known Coptergate was coined when Christie flew in a state police helicopter to his son’s high school baseball game.
