Chris Christie endorses Trump
Yes, this is huge. I’m blogging from the Metrpolitan Museum of Art on my iPhone. Will have a lot more to say later.

Obviously this is great news for Trump because he needed some social proof. For more than half a year, the MSM has been saying that Trump is a bozo who can’t possibly win the nomination and he’s also an evil racist. So Trump needs social proof like this to let people know that it’s OK to vote for him, respectable governors like Christie support him.
And Christie is pretty well respected among Republicans. His endorsement is big enough that 1 to 2 points could come off of Rubio and move to Trump, and that would make a huge difference.
And this endorsement comes before the crucial Super Tuesday primaries. Christie gave Trump his endorsement when it will do Trump a lot of good.
It’s also common sense for Christie. Getting on Trump’s good side when Trump is likely to be the next president of the United States makes a lot of sense. This has to put Christie at the top of Trump’s short list of vice presidential picks. It’s always good advice to pick for vice president someone who also ran for the nomination but lost.
