The internet has a new favourite meme in the form of Chris Christie
Former Republican Presidential hopeful Chris Christie, who dropped out of the campaign recently, has decided to give his backing to Donald Trump.
That decision seemed to be a strange one by Christie, given that he and Trump had clashed on a number of policy issues, but there was no doubting his support for him on Tuesday night.
As Trump made his victory speech at a press conference in, Christie was on stage with Donald Trump at Palm Beach in Florida, and the footage of him awkwardly standing there after he introduced Trump quickly swept over social media.
