VIDEO: Chris Matthews Makes a Fat Joke About Chris Christie [Updated]

Tells ThinkFest crowd he would “crush” his wife.

UPDATE: Now with video! Here’s the footage of the exchange.


The Huffington Post picks up a little exchange Philly Mag's staff witnessed firsthand last night, when Editor Tom McGrath shared a stage with MSNBC's Chris Matthews during ThinkFest's keynote.

"Two days after Election Day, Chris Christie has crushed his opponent. Is he gonna be the Republican ..." began McGrath.

"The one I feel for is his wife," Matthews cut in.

After a brief pause, some chuckled as McGrath asked, "Why's that?"

"Did you just say, 'crush?'" Matthews said. "I mean, use your imagination."

The crowd erupted.

We'll have video of the exchange a little later on.

    Matthews – what an ass.

    Well, I guess this means Philly Talk Radio will be outraged that someone said something nasty about Chris Christie who they say was responsible for the Romney Loss????? When I heard the whole conversation, (Something Talk Radio is well paid not to do), probably not Matthews’ finest hour,,,the story changes.

    Christie does have a big one.

  • Thin Fest

    You won’t see Hillary agree to stand next to Christie because she’s wider than he is in the backside department.
