First Lady Mary Pat Christie reacts to Governor Chris Christie’s remarks during a press conference. The Governor joked that he more likely to die at a Bruce Springsteen show than doze off at one, even though the concerts can stretch on for three hours. While he remembered his brother, his children and Deputy Chief of Staff Deborah Gramiccioni being there, he told reporters that the First Lady, Mary Pat, “taken the night off.”
“I was there,” she corrected from her seat.
It turns out she’d skipped Springsteen’s Philadelphia show later in the week.
“Oh, you were there,” Christie said, laughing. “Well, she took one night off. It was dark. What did I know? I was tired!”
