Chris Christie's team has come to his defense after a profile piece about Donald Trump claimed the New Jersey governor is Trump's "manservant."
"We categorically deny this ridiculous, completely invented scenario, which the writer attributed to an unnamed source's anonymous friend," Christie spokesman Brian Murray told Business Insider.
"The fact the writer relegated this bit of sleaze between parentheses certainly indicates he knew it was trash that had to be separated from the rest of the story."
Murray was referring to a story that appeared in The New Yorker.
"Governor Chris Christie, of New Jersey, another of Trump’s opponents early in the campaign, has transformed himself into a sort of manservant, who is constantly with Trump at events," Ryan Lizza wrote. "(One Republican told me that a friend of his on the Trump campaign used Snapchat to send him a video of Christie fetching Trump’s McDonald’s order.)"
Christie has become one of Trump's campaign advisors since he exited the presidential race in February. He has done everything from helping Trump prepare for debates
to leading his transition team.
Trump is the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.
