During the 10th anniversary edition of "Morning Joe" on Tuesday morning, the hosts welcomed New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to the show. While the interview was taking place, Christie took a shot at MSNBC host Rachel Maddow, while also appearing to flirt with co-host Mika Brzezinski.

Christie on "Morning Joe"

Heading into the 2016 presidential election, one potential candidate that was seen as a favorite to do well in the Republican primary was Chris Christie. The governor of New Jersey brought with him a north east attitude that was different than what was being presented from the other candidates expected to run for president.

However, Christie hit a brick wall during the so-called "Bridgegate" scandal when the governor and his team were accused of shutting down access to the George Washington Bridge in an attempt to get political revenge on Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich, a Democrat who didn't support the governor in his reelection bid. Despite not being found guilty, Christie's national political stock was damaged, while Donald Trump took over the GOP primary in the process. These issues and more were discussed when Christie stopped by "Morning Joe" on September 19.

Joining the hosts on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" to celebrate the show's 10th anniversary on the air, Chris Christie attempted to laugh off the topic of "Bridgegate," deflecting attention to the amount of coverage given to the story by MSNBC host Rachel Maddow.

"I can’t thank your network enough for that too,” Christie said with sarcastic humor. "Your network (MSNBC) made a cottage industry for about three months on that. Rachel Maddow, an hour special on this secretary to governor Christie," he added.

After Mika Brzezinski referred to the conversation as awkward, Christie Christie made questionable comments to the co-host.

"Are we going to talk about our odd attraction?" Christi said to Brzezinski, with her fellow co-host and fiance Joe Scarborough sitting be her side. "Oh my God. He just did that. He went there," Brzezinski said while cringing, before adding, "Usually Donny does that stuff."

Moving forward

While Chris Christie appeared to have some fun with his awkward and borderline inappropriate remarks on "Morning Joe," the governor has other issues to worry.

As his time in office comes to an end, Christie is currently one of the least popular governors in the entire country, polling with just a 15 percent approval in the most recent Quinnipiac University Poll.
