Conan O’Brien joked back in July 2015, “Chris Christie launched his presidential campaign in the gymnasium of his old high school. He wanted to launch it in the school’s cafeteria but there’s still a restraining order.”
Since the moment he suspended his pathetic presidential bid Chris Christie has been the butt of jokes. He underwent lap band surgery in 2013 to lose weight and while he was successful in dropping an appreciable amount of weight one has to wonder if the New Jersey governor has recklessly abandoned the reason for that surgery.
During the NCAA Sweet 16 game between Notre Dame and Wisconsin, Christie was seen pouring M&Ms from a bag into a larger box of M&Ms. Pete Blackburn was in the stands at Wells Fargo Center in Philly and snapped a photo of the guv and it went viral.
Its good he dropped out of the race. What we don’t need is a president who can’t control himself.
The viral M&Ms photo apparently bothered Christie enough that he called into WFAN’s Boomer & Carlton show Wednesday morning to set the record straight on his gluttonous M&Ms habit.
Christie said, “The reason I called in this morning was your dopey following of the story of me and M&Ms.”
“Why?” Carlton asked.
“There’s a bag inside the box, you dope,” Christie said. “You get the box, you open the box, there’s a bag inside the box. Why they do it that way I have no idea. But you open up the bag; pour the bag into the box. It’s easier,” Christie explained.
Carlton then asked, “Why not just sell the bag or sell them in a box?”
“Listen, I run New Jersey, not M&Ms,” Christie countered.
The radio host immediately reminded the governor that M&Ms has a plant in Hackettstown, NJ.
"We love them. It's the 75th anniversary of M&Ms. We're thrilled. And you're an idiot!" Christie retorted.
#ChrisChristie in approx. 2 months went from trying to be #POTUS to having to explain why he pours smaller bags of M&M's into bigger ones.— Cam McCarthy (@McCahhhty) April 1, 2016
