Sick burn, EWR. The crooked as heck governor of New Jersey has barely been out of office for three whole days, and he gets escorted out by a cop when attempting to waddle his way into Newark International Airport's VIP entrance.

Christie had been using that entrance for his entire two terms as governor. For about 50% of 2015, he was out of state running for president, which failed, like everything else he touches.

From CBS News: in New York:

Christie tried to circumvent a TSA checkpoint at Newark Liberty International Airport Terminal C Thursday morning. Christie was with his State Police detail and attempted to enter through a special access area, located near the exit of the restricted area of the terminal.

The Port Authority says one of its officers refused to let Christie pass, telling the former governor that he is no longer allowed to use that access.

The officer escorted Christie to the regular entrance.

Christie cooperated as instructed.

New Jersey

governors have the option to have a trooper protect them for six months. Two previous governors and Christie have opted to exercise that option.
