GOP Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey is currently battling the press during a lengthy and heated press conference, with the judge and jury of Twitter weighing in on the scandal known as “bridgegate.”
In the aftermath, Christie’s staff took a big hit — losing Bill Stepien and Bridget Kelly — but not all of Twitter is buying what Chris is selling.
As the conference trends on Twitter, people are making assessments, saying:

Wait … did Chris Christie just say “Senator Brony?” Do we have a brony lawmaker?

Pretty sure Chris Christie just pronounced Senator Buono as Senator Brony. Headcanon accepted. #notmygovernor
