New Jersey paper draws Chris Christie as Dallas Cowboys cheerleader

Sometimes, it’s brutal to be a football fan, especially if you are New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

Ever since he was shown paling around Jerry Jones’ box during the Cowboys wild-card playoff win Sunday, Christie has been lampooned on social media.

And, so far, it has not subsided.

On Tuesday, a drawing by Newark Star-Ledger's cartoonist Drew Sheneman made the rounds on social media, getting laughs from some and infuriating others who said Christie’s football loyalty should not be such a big deal.

The cartoon of an enormous Christie dressed as a scantily clad Cowboys cheerleader really goes for the jugular.

Christie claims he has always been a Cowboys fan, and Jerry Jones has said the two are friends.
