Chris Christie tells fat jokes on 'Letterman'

Posted on

Watch out, Cory Booker: Another government bigshot is making a play for the title of New Jersey’s most likeable politician.

For months, Governor Chris Christie has been one of David Letterman’s favorite targets. (Insert joke about a target that’s easy to hit here.) And though Christie isn’t always willing to entertain discussion of that weighty topic — see how he shot down Barbara Walters during her “Most Fascinating People” special last year — he was more than a good sport about it yesterday, casually pulling out a doughnut as soon as he sat down with Dave. His explanation? “I didn’t know this was gonna be this long.”

Christie’s geniality continued as he assured Dave that he doesn’t mind fat jokes, as long as they’re funny. He then recited a few of his favorite Letterman digs at his own expense as the host looked on, chuckling in a mixture of amusement and embarrassment. It’s sort of like those “celebrities read mean tweets about themselves” videos on Jimmy Kimmel, except much more intense (and with free doughnuts!). Grab a pastry and watch for yourself below:
