TRENTON, N.J. • New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie wasn't in a pardoning mood when an itsy, bitsy spider crawled on his desk while he spoke to a group of schoolchildren.
The students spotted the arachnid near the governor's phone on Friday. Speaking softly, Christie gave the spider a smack down.
The governor told the students that another fun part of being governor is you're allowed to kill any bugs on your desk without getting into trouble.
