Will Gov. Chris Christie’s love for The Boss turn sour?

New Jersey’s favorite son may not stay in favor with Christie much longer.

Appearing on NBC’s “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon,” Bruce Springsteen performed a costumed “Born to Run” parody with Jimmy Fallon, calling it “Gov. Chris Christie’s Fort Lee, New Jersey Traffic Jam.”

Fallon sang, “They shut down the tollbooths of glory ’cause we didn’t endorse Chris Christie.”

Christie has admitted to being moved to tears at prior Springsteen concerts. Will the love die?
