Yesterday, the citizens of New Jersey voted for a new Governor that will replace the term-limited Chris Christie. MSNBC host Ari Melber shared video lowlights of Christie’s run as Governor on The Beat and worked in lyrics from the Grateful Dead song “Truckin'” throughout his commentary.
Melber introduced the supercut by stating, “As Jerry Garcia would say, ‘what a long strange trip it’s been.” He wound up throwing in “busted down on Bourbon Street,” betting his cards “ain’t worth a dime” and other lyrics from the Garcia/Hunter-penned gem. Ari follows in the footsteps of fellow MSNBC host Katy Tur, who has worked Phish references into many of her segments. The piece ended with Melber reciting the “Truckin'” chorus of, “Sometimes the lights all shining on me. Other times I can barely see. Lately it occurs to me, Governor Christie what a long strange trip it’s been.”
