Jimmy Fallon & Bruce Springsteen Spoof Chris Christie’s “Bridgegate” Scandal
On the East Coast, people are still reeling, and rightfully so, over the New Jersey “Bridgegate” scandal.
In a cover of The Boss’ “Born To Run,” the duo skewered Governor Chris Christie and the massive traffic jam his administration allegedly created to punish a local mayor who didn’t support Christie’s reelection campaign.
“You got Wall Street masters stuck cheek to cheek with blue collar truckers and man I really gotta take a leak, but I can’t,” sang Springsteen. I’m stuck in Governor Chris Christie’s Fort Lee New Jersey traffic jam.”
This isn’t the first time Springsteen and Fallon have teamed up.
Take a look back at one of our favorite bits, their rendition of Willow Smith’s “Whip My Hair.”
