REPORT: REAL REASON CHRIS CHRISTIE Was Demoted On Trump’s Transition Team

Chris Christie was trying to photobomb Donald Trump on election night…now that’s funny! Christie was “trying to get in shots” with The Donald. This behavior followed Christie throughout the Trump campaign. Remember when Christie had the awkward moment when he stood right next to Trump during a key speech in Florida? It was cringeworthy but this is embarrassing…

The more important problem with Christie is that he didn’t show up and actually work for Trump. He was MIA… 

Something was bothering Donald Trump as he made his victory speech after the election. The newly minted president-elect took the stage with at least 40 of his closest aides and allies, but according to a high-level campaign source familiar with Trump’s thinking, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie kept pushing to be near the president-elect and “trying to get in shots.”

“Trump got annoyed,” the source told Yahoo News.

The election night photo incident was one of several factors Trump insiders cited to explain why Christie was demoted from his position as transition team chair and replaced by Vice President-elect Mike Pence on Nov. 11.

In addition to the three Trump campaign sources who spoke to Yahoo News, two junior staffers also described specific instances of alleged mismanagement by Christie that got the transition off to a slow start. The two staffers said Christie did alarmingly little work on the transition and was largely absent from the campaign during the weeks leading up to the election, when Trump was widely expected to lose. According to one account, campaign staffers had been so accustomed to Christie’s absence that they were surprised to see him appear at campaign headquarters in Trump Tower — on Election Day.
