Chris Christie, the sitting governor of New Jersey, has been diminished to an errand boy for Donald Trump’s campaign, according to a New Yorker report published online on Monday.

“[Christie] has transformed himself into a sort of manservant, who is constantly with Trump at events,” Ryan Lizza wrote in the magazine’s June 20 issue. Lizza also said one anonymous Republican source told him a friend on Trump’s campaign “used Snapchat to send him a video of Christie fetching Trump’s McDonald’s order.”

The piece, which traces Republicans coming to terms with Trump as the presumptive nominee, is the latest humiliation for Christie since he became a prominent surrogate for the businessman’s campaign.

After appearing on camera with a panicked, deer-in-the-headlights look in his eyes for much of a Super Tuesday press conference with Trump in March, Christie was forced to hold a presser of his own to clarify, “No, I wasn’t being held hostage.”

During a campaign event last month in New Jersey, Trump commanded Christie, who was off camera, to stop eating Oreo cookies.
