Bruce Springsteen and Jimmy Fallon in Parody of “Born To Run” take Jabs at Chris Christie

JAN 16, 2014 – If you haven't seen it yet, below is the video of Jimmy Fallon and Bruce Springsteen and Jimmy Fallon doing a parody of "Born to Run" and taking jabs at New Jersey's Governor Chris Christie who is caught up in his GW Bridge scandal right now. It is no secret Bruce Springsteen has been fighting for worker's rights, and Chris Christie has been attacking worker's rights, and that sticks in Bruce's craw. Even though Christie is his Governor and a huge Springsteen fan, Bruce snubbed him at one concert when he tried to visit him backstage and the Boss lets his feelings known he is disappointed in the Governor. JTMP is also disappointed in Christie attacking worker's rights and unions. This is a pattern of conservative Governors across the country and we as a people need to fight back and secure our economic rights as workers. Watch the hilarious clip of "Gov. Christie Traffic Jam" below.

Wonkette: Bruce Springsteen Snubs Chris Christie

June 22, 2012 – Wonkette has an interesting post out about the relationship between New Jersey's music ambassador Bruce Springsteen and New Jersey's Governor Chris Christie. As many people know, Chris Christie is a big fan of Bruce Springsteen, but his anti-union and anti-working class stances and policies have made Bruce Springsteen unhappy at Governor Christie, and so apparently even though there have been occasions such as at the end of a show the Governor will walk near the dressing room area with his security, Chris Christie is not invited to the after show party, and is snubbed by the Boss.
