The hashtag #FreeChrisChristie began trending on Twitter as the New Jersey governor stood behind Donald Trump on Tuesday during his victory, poking fun at what appeared to be some sort of subdued panic written across his face.

Among the first people to draw attention to Christie's countenance was NBC reporter Ronan Farrow, who posted a short video clip on Twitter and Vine.



Trevor Noah, the new host of Comedy Central's "The Daily Show," also got in on the fun, trying to guess what was on Christie's mind.



A reporter at BuzzFeed News was among many who made jokes that Christie was actually Trump's hostage.

"Gov. Christie, blink twice if you're in trouble!" wrote Rosie Gray

"@ChrisChristie just gave what looked like a coerced confession," tweeted Rep. Justin Amash, adding, "it's staged to look like a hostage situation."

"Come on guys, cruel and unusual punishment is unconstitutional. #FreeChrisChristie," wrote another commenter.

Another reporter at Mediaite suggested sympathetically that the soundtrack in Christie's head was very likely "The Sound of Silence" by Simon & Garfunkel.

USA Today reported that Christie once criticized Trump as the "entertainer-in-chief," before he eventually dropped out of the race and endorsed the billionaire.

Many skeptics and critics called the endorsement a prime example of political opportunism, including one of his chief backers, Meg Whitman, the CEO of Hewlett Packard Enterprise.
