Gov. Christie to appear on David Letterman show
Posted January 31, 2013
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is ready to go toe-to-toe with David Letterman and his seemingly endless supply of fat jokes.
The Republican will make his "long-awaited first visit" to the Late Show Monday night, according to a news release from CBS.
Christie's weight has been skewered by many a late-night comedian, especially Letterman. The governor acknowledged as much, joking that Letterman had made 327,832 fat jokes at his expense.
The governor's flirtation with a 2012 presidential bid, coupled with his size, inspired one of Letterman's popular Top 10 lists titled "Ways the Country Would Be Different If Chris Christie Were President."
No. 1 on that list? "Scandal when president is caught in Oval Office with Betty Crocker and Sara Lee."
Christie once said that he's OK with all the ribbing given he's a public figure. "All I care about is that they actually are funny, you know, so that I can at least laugh about it while they're mocking me," he said.
Monday night could be a lot of fun.
