It snowed in the northeastern part of the country on Thursday, causing traffic and mass transit problems for millions of people. And former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie wasn’t happy about how it affected his commute.
“It took me 5 hours and 40 minutes to travel from Piscataway to Mendham. #snowmess,” he tweeted on Thursday night, quote tweeting current New Jersey governor Phil Murphy.
Of course, Christie complaining about traffic problems was considered ironic by many people given the George Washington Bridge lane closure scandal—which was known as “Bridgegate” and featured the “time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee” email—mired much of Christie’s second term as governor.
The need to dunk on Christie for complaining about traffic appears to be widespread.
As of Friday morning, the former governor’s tweet had been thoroughly ratioed—with more than 2,000 replies compared to just 178 retweets and 690 likes.
Wow, traffic jams really suck, huh? https://t.co/8JrerWpONL— jordan (@JordanUhl) November 16, 2018

Thank goodness you weren't trying to cross the George Washington Bridge, I heard it's had some traffic problems. https://t.co/U6qNhGdCfj— Karl Wilhelm Ruprecht von Hoodrich (@vonHoodrich) November 16, 2018
Like the streets of Fort Lee, NJ on September 9, 2013. https://t.co/zBsxpJXbVb— JHWBB (@JaneHWBB) November 16, 2018
Might as well just tweet asking people to ratio you. https://t.co/0cJ5toYxeT— Machine Pun Kelly (@KellyScaletta) November 16, 2018
I bet most everyone in NJ can agree on one thing this morning...you sitting in 5+ of traffic is the one bright spot in the nightmare that was yesterdays commute. https://t.co/33hrCdYfFM— Cyndi Cicero (@CynCi) November 16, 2018
