Colbert Calls Out Chris Christie For Pretending He's Not Running For President Already

Posted: Updated:

On last night's "Colbert Report," Stephen Colbert took aim at newly reelected New Jersey governor Chris Christie for his repeated denials that he's already launching a presidential campaign for 2016 -- by appearing on as many national media outlets as possible to make the claim.

"Chris Christie appeared on all four Sunday shows to talk about how much he didn't want to talk about the 2016 race," Colbert said, before playing a montage of clips of Christie bragging about his accomplishments as governor.

"He's just the governor of New Jersey," he continued. "That's why he went on 'Meet the Jersey,' 'Fox News Jersey,' Face the Turnpike' and 'This New Jersey with New Jersey Jerseyopolis.'"
