Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is learning that life as a private citizen is no day at the beach.
Just three days after handing over the keys to the governor’s mansion, Christie was told by cops at Newark Airport to wait in line like everybody else.
According to reports, Christie was turned away from a VIP entrance at the biggest airport in his own home state.
The two-term Republican, who left office on Jan. 16, tried to go through an entrance he had used for eight years only to learn that his first-class expectations were just a flight of fancy.
Instead of getting the gubernatorial go-ahead, Christie and the state trooper assigned to him for protection were directed to the Transportation Security Administration screening lines at Terminal B.
Christie and the state trooper complied with the directions.
It was unclear where Christie was going.
