Forget all the flak he's taking from the press. And from voters. And from political opponents who think this could spell the end of his 2016 Presidential election bid.

THIS has to hurt the most for Chris Christie.

On Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the governor's very own musical hero joined the show's host on stage for a reworked version of "Born to Run," one that skewered Christie for his role in Bridgegate.

Yes, even Bruce Springsteen is now piling on in light of a scandal that involves Christie's subordinates purposely causing a major traffic jam for residents of Fort Lee, New Jersy because the mayor of that city didn't support Christie.

Causing kids to be late for school and thousands of people to be late for work? Not funny. The lyrics and presentation of the following parody? Totally hilarious.

Chris Christie was re-elected as New Jersey governor in a landslide Tuesday, posting a 60-39 percent victory over his challenger, state Sen. Barbara Buono.

For months, the popular Republican held a sizable lead in the polls as Buono failed to get her campaign off the ground. He never gave an inch.

Chris Christie was re-elected with widespread support from men, women, independents, members of his own party, and even three in 10 Democrats.

"I'm the luckiest guy in the world," Christie said, flanked by his wife Mary Pat and their four children, during his acceptance speech in Asbury Park, N.J.

The Democratic challenger, Buono, won the votes of liberals, African-Americans, and young voters, but that was not nearly enough to stop Christie.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is one of the country's most popular and high-profile politicians, but Jersey Shore stars Snooki and JWoww are not impressed.

It was the Republican's recent appeal against the court ruling allowing same-sex marriage in the Garden State that left a bad taste in JWoww's mouth.

"He's retarded," she said. "He's a disgrace to Jersey just like we were!"

Well, at least half of that statement is undeniably accurate, if you follow.

Chris Christie wants the state to appeal a judge's ruling that it must allow gay marriage; a definite decision on the matter will be made by October 21.

JWoww, meanwhile, has issued a mea culpa of sorts. She took to her Twitter on Tuesday, October 1, to apologize for her offensive word choice:

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has signed a bill barring licensed therapists from trying to turn gay teenagers straight, according to multiple reports.

The bill passed both houses of the New Jersey Legislature with bipartisan support.

Assemblyman Tim Eustace, who sponsored the gay conversion therapy ban and is openly gay, described the therapy as "an insidious form of child abuse."

In a signing note accompanying the bill that will be made public Monday, Christie said he believes people are born gay and that homosexuality is not a sin.

The Republican also said the health risks of trying to change a child's sexual orientation outweigh concerns over the government setting limits on parental choice.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie may indeed be the hottest politician out there ... figuratively. He's leading two 2016 presidential polls among Republicans.

A Rasmussen Reports poll Wednesday shows Christie, who is expected to win reelection in New Jersey handily this year, leading the potential GOP field.

His 21 percent support edges Florida Sen. Marco Rubio (18 percent) and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (16 percent), both of whom may also run.

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul is behind Bush with 15 percent, while 2012 Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan garnered 13 percent of the vote.

Chris Christie leads a new survey of "hottest politicians" in the U.S., but not "hottest" as in how Juan Pablo Galavis was the "hottest" Bachelorette contestant.

The New Jersey Governor and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton scored best on Quinnipiac's "Thermometer of Voter Attitudes" in a recent poll.

Christie, at 53.1 degrees on the "Thermometer," Clinton, 52.1 degrees and Sen. Warren (D-MA), at 49.2 degrees, are all "hotter" than President Obama.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) matches the president, at 47.6 degrees, although 75 percent of voters said they didn't know enough about her to rate her.

For Republican Christie, who is expected to win reelection easily this year in a highly Democratic state, it's yet another sign that his star is on the rise.

However, he only scores eighth hottest among GOP voters.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie secretly underwent lap-band stomach surgery this year to lose weight, the politician himself confirmed to the N.Y. Post.

He told the newspaper he was thinking of his four young children and how it was time to start improving his health when he decided to have the procedure.

“I’ve struggled with this issue for 20 years,” he said. “For me, this is about turning 50 and looking at my children and wanting to be there for them.”

The Republican also insisted that, contrary to what observers may say, the effort to slim down was not motivated by thoughts of the 2016 election.

“It’s so much more important than that,” he said.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said this week that he isn't sure if he would sign a bill to ban the practice of using therapies to turn a gay child into a straight child.

His expected challenger for reelection, State Sen. Barbara Buono, a co-sponsor of the bill banning gay conversion therapy of minors, calls that "disgusting."

Gov. Christie

The Buono team clearly senses an opening to cast the popular Republican governor as a right-wing fanatic, something he is rarely if ever called.

He was asked yesterday about the bill, which passed out of a legislative committee Monday and has yet to be approved by the full state legislature.

Christie said that he generally doesn't decide on bills before they reach his desk and he had only recently heard of the practice of gay conversion.

A 2016 presidential poll suggests that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton (D) are the ones to beat.

According to a Quinnipiac University survey, Christie edges two fellow Republicans, Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin and Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida.

Christie would also defeat two prominent Democratic candidates, Vice President Joe Biden and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, the poll showed.

But in a head-to-head battle with Hillary Clinton - the clear Democratic frontrunner if she runs - Christie would lose by approximately eight points.

Chris Christie stopped by the Late Show with David Letterman last night, and fat jokes about the New Jersey Governor were flying left and right.

For a change of pace, Christie was the one making them this time.

Typically a good sport about his weight, Christie began by taking out a doughnut and starting to eat it just moments into his interview with Letterman.

"I didn't know this was going to be this long," he deadpanned.
