Chris Christie opened up for Donald Trump‘s Super Tuesday victory conference tonight, where he took a rather reserved tone as he talked up the mogul to the press.
Trump took the stage after he finished, but Christie just kind of lingered behind him instead of getting off the stage. The New Jersey governor was still quite visible to the TV cameras, and as Trump spoke, people took to Twitter to mock his facial expressions of sadness and regret after being reduced to his former rival’s second fiddle:

Trump says "we're gonna have a wall" with Christie standing beside him.
A few weeks ago, Christie said a wall was a stupid idea.

Christie's feigned adoration for Trump is downright North Korean.

If you mute this Trump speech, it looks like they're holding a bachelor auction but no one will bid on Chris Christie.
