It’s no secret that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is a large man. The jokes, the pointed barbs, the insults have long been out there.
But at least the guy’s got a sense of humor about his size. Watch Christie jokingly rip a reporter a new one when he asks him about the demise of Twinkies, and you’ll see a guy who knows how to win a room over.
I know it! You people are the worst! This is a setup! I am not answering questions on Twinkies, no, no, no, no, no, no. It’s bad that I even said the word ‘Twinkie’ from behind this microphone.
Christie’s been trying for years to lose weight and often jokes about it, saying his efforts are like “throwing a couple deck chairs off of the Titanic.
And speaking of Saturday Night Live, the governor made a surprise drop-in on Saturday Night Live’s Weekend update and commented on the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
He thanked the Red Cross and complimented the people of New Jersey, and also poked fun at himself, his “Chris Christie Governor” fleece shirt and how much he loves Bruce Springsteen.
