Chris Christie said Wednesday he was wrong not to wear a disguise when he visited the White House with the two men recently indicted on charges of bribing a U.S. senator in return for campaign help in 2014.

“I should have worn a mask,” Christie said. “But I didn’t. I got caught up in the moment.”

Christie said the comment was not part of a publicity stunt, but rather a self-admitted error in judgment.

“I’m a New Jersey guy,” he said. “I’m not that successful in New Jersey that I wanted to disguise myself.”

The former governor, who has struggled since stepping out of politics, said on “The Daily Show” that he was referring to his boss, former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., who visited the White House while wearing a dark mask.

“There have been moments. Biden would always have a mask on,” Christie said, emphasizing that he was not being a joke.

The duo have since been released on bail.

The remarks came after Trump named Christie to head the long-anticipated Commission on Commission with Russia, that may or may not be given subpoena power. Christie also may be rewarded with a White House post.
