While some criticize Christie for failing to control his weight, he appeared on David Letterman this week and joked about his weight (Video below).
Christie went as far as to bring a jelly doughnut as a snack, saying he was the "healthiest fat guy you've seen in your life." A bit later, he got into a more serious conversation with Letterman.
The governor said both his cholesterol and blood sugar were fine ("startlingly good"), but said he thinks about going on a diet "every day." "But I just turned 50, and so the doctor ... (said) things are going to fall off of me if I don't get it together, but up to this point it's been pretty good."
What do you think of Christie's comments and weight? Should he be joking about it or taking it more seriously? Let us know in the comments.
