Nobody can criticize Chris Christie for not giving it his all in his bid to become Donald Trump's running mate.

The New Jersey governor rankled the GOP establishment in his endorsement of Trump, was the infamous foil in a meme that broke the internet, was told to quit eating Oreos, and endured other indignities in his quest to become VP, according to a Washington Post story.

It all came to an end Friday, officially, when Trump announced Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as his running mate.

The sense of Christie's reaction came Thursday when the Pence reports first started circulating, telling MSNBC that he would be bothered by it.

"'Cause if you're a competitive person, like I am, and you're used to winning, like I am — again, you don't like coming in second, ever."

Christie tweeted:


But it shouldn't be all that surprising to Christie nor all that bad.

Trump named Christie his White House transition chair back in May, not something candidates bestow on their intended running mate.

And Christie is widely speculated to be Attorney General in a Trump administration, possibly foreshadowed by Donald Trump Jr. in late February.

"I mean, I think there would certainly be something within the Justice Department for him," the 38-year-old Donald Trump Jr. said on a Fox News show.
