Jimmy Fallon and Bruce Springsteen Poke Fun at Chris Christie and Bridgegate

Posted on January 15, 2014

Jimmy Fallon did a hilarious bit on his show about New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's slowly exploding scandal they're calling Bridgegate. Christie's aides admitted to shutting down several lanes on the bridge to slow traffic in response to a neighboring politico's (the mayor of Ft. Lee, New Jersey) refusal to support Christie. Christie swears he didn't authorize the childish prank, which prevented emergency vehicles from reaching two people.
