All eyes on Mary Pat Christie! Chris Christie’s wife appeared to roll her eyes during Donald Trump’s victory speech in New York, after he won five key Republican primaries on Tuesday, April 26.
Toward the end of his speech, Trump, 69, slammed Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton, saying that she would only get “five percent of the vote” if she were a man. “The only thing she’s got going is the women’s card, and the beautiful thing is, women don’t like her, OK? And look how well I did with women tonight,” the real estate mogul said.
Mary Pat, 52, who was standing right behind Trump, appeared emotionless through most of the speech — until he started bashing Clinton. New York Times reporter Michael Barbaro was one of the first to point out that Mary Pat glanced over at her husband and seemingly rolled her eyes at the comments. Other Twitter users also claimed to see the eye roll and a smirk. The New Jersey governor, 53, didn’t look overly happy to be Trump’s sidekick at the press conference either. Mary Pat’s reaction quickly went viral as people debated whether it was a sign of disapproval or simply a turn of her head.
Chris is one of Trump’s biggest supporters and officially endorsed the Republican front-runner in late February after dropping out of the presidential race himself. “I will lend my support between now and November in any way for Donald,” he said at a rally in Fort Worth, Texas.
