Chris Christie’s moment is over. I feel dirty for even considering him as presidential for a fleeting moment.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie poked fun at his weight on the “Late Show With David Letterman” on Monday, consuming a doughnut during his first appearance on the late-night show.
A few seconds after sitting down with Letterman, the heavy-set Republican pulled a doughnut out of his suit pocket.
“I didn’t know this was going to be this long,” Christie joked before taking a bite of the glazed pastry.
Host David Letterman asked Christie if he was bothered by weight jokes aimed at him.
“Well, I only care if you’re funny,” Christie said. “From my perspective, if the joke is funny, I laugh—even if it’s about me. If it’s not funny, I don’t laugh. But I’ve never felt like it was, you know, anything that really bugged me all that much.”
3-2 odds that he speaks at the 2016 or 2020 Democratic Convention as he “evolves”.
