Stories like this are frequent across the media and while I think some aspects are silly, it does look as though Christie is mad about having to support Trump. His body language betrays him. That makes me wonder if the reason he's supporting Trump is because Trump uncovered some scandal on him - perhaps he took a bribe from Trump to allow his to expand his real estate empire and Trump threatened to out him?

Pretty sure Christie is supporting Trump because he wants to be appointed as one of Trump's advisers, either VP or something else.

He might not like the idea of endorsing Trump per se, but it's far more likely he's doing it for strategic reasons. Being Trump's first big-name endorsement, he's making a place for himself in the post-2016 GOP.
