New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) would like you to know that he definitely did not get a tan this weekend.

The paparazzi didn't get a chance to view the Governor getting a tan either. That effects the economy.

I'll be darn they did get a picture of him. Governor Chris Christie unapologetic? Ya, think?

And now there isn't going to be any fireworks either. The First Lady of New Jersey, Mary Pat looks hot. That is quite a crew. I would think the photographer could have gotten in some water. It looks like the First Family of New Jersey is sitting on a desert. The Governor wears to many clothes on the beach to cause any excitement.

Yes, Christie told reporters (click here) at a Sunday news conference in Trenton, his family was staying in the state-owned beach house at Island Beach State Park over the July 4 weekend — even though the park was closed to the public amid a statewide government shutdown.

He had been unapologetic about that gubernatorial perk the day before: “That’s the way it goes,” Christie said Saturday. “Run for governor, and you can have the residence.”

And, yes, he had joined his family at said state-owned beach house, flying between the barrier island and Trenton using a state helicopter. But when asked if he got any sun, Christie was clear.

“I didn’t,” he said Sunday, according to the Newark Star-Ledger. “I didn’t get any sun today.”

That was before the newspaper showed the governor aerial photos of himself and his family relaxing on a very large and otherwise empty (because it was closed) portion of the state beach. The exclusive photos were published Sunday evening on, sparking outrage from New Jersey residents already upset about the state’s budget impasse....

There ya go. There is water.

Trenton — New Jersey’s government shutdown (click here) will go on at least one more day, the state’s top Democratic lawmaker said Monday morning.

“It couldn’t end today if we wanted to,” Senate President Stephen Sweeney (D., Gloucester) said at a Statehouse news conference. “Because if we could get something done, we’d have to draft a bill. … It’s at least tomorrow.”

“Getting something done” is also uncertain.

Sweeney is due to meet this afternoon with Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto (D., Hudson), and Robert Marino, CEO of Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey — the company at the center of the shutdown fight, which began at 12:01 a.m. Saturday after lawmakers failed to pass a budget for the new fiscal year....

The immigrants are going to be like, "Yah, man, where are all the freedom fireworks? I thought that was a big thing around here." Everybody is going to be like, "Atlantic City? Naah, there ain't no fireworks there either. So much for Trump."
