TRENTON – Fresh off his inaugural appearance on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Gov. Chris Christie told reporters Friday he “had a great time last night” appearing on the late-night program.
“It’s another one of those things that brings me closer to my children,” Christie joked.
“My 19-year-old son called me from college last night,” he said. “[He] thought it was pretty cool.”
The Republican governor sat down with the Comedy Central television host for nearly 30 minutes discussing Bruce Springsteen, Superstorm Sandy and Christie’s recent decision to veto the state’s proposed health exchange act.
“Jon Stewart and I just turned 50 in the last two months,” Christie said, adding, “We’re the same age [from] the same state. … I know we’re wise guys. He’s a wise guy and so am I.”
The man reported to be at the center of a controversy over lane closures on the George Washington Bridge is resigning from the Port Authority, according to published reports.Read More >

I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die."- Nelson Mandela
