Paul Ryan Trash Talks Chris Christie After Packers Defeat Cowboys

Wisconsin U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan busted New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s chops following the Green Bay Packers 26-21 win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

The Wisconsin Republican’s jab was a reference to Christie’s high-profile awkward embrace last week of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones following the team’s win over the Detroit Lions. Christie is a lifelong Cowboys fan.

Ryan wasn’t the only Wisconsin politician to tease Christie over the Jones hug. Gov. Scott Walker posted a tweet earlier this week referencing Christie’s close friendship with Jones, a billionaire and one of the NFL’s highest profile owners.

The Packers are the NFL’s only publicly-owned non-profit team. More than 360,000 shareholders own 5 million shares in the team.

Both Christie and Walker are reportedly considering 2016 presidential bids.
