Livingston, NJ - Gov. Christie Apologizes For Being Introduced as a 'rock star' At Chabad Event
Livingston, NJ - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is notoriously unapologetic, but says he had to ask forgiveness for being introduced as a “rock star” to Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney.
Christie says he was surprised to meet the music great a fundraiser in New Brunswick for Chabad House, a Jewish community center. And when a Christie fan introduced the GOP governor to McCartney as a “rock star,” Christie says he felt obliged to set the record straight.
When the governor took the stage to give a speech, Christie says he made it clear that McCartney was the only rock star in the room.
Christie says McCartney was attending the fundraiser because the father of McCartney’s girlfriend, Nancy Shevell, is a Chabad House supporter.
