New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie took to the podium to introduce Donald Trump after Trump's impressive showing on Super Tuesday.
As Trump began his victory speech from Florida, Christie stepped back and stood behind him with a blank stare. An animated Trump took questions from reporters while Christie stood motionless in the background and did not maintain the role of "hype man." Soon, Christie was trending on Twitter.
