Jimmy Kimmel’s “Chris Christie Is Fat” Jokes at the White House Correspondents Dinner


Jimmy Kimmel’s performance at the White House Correspondents Dinner was critically well-received. In case you missed it, he had a little bit of fun at Chris Christie’s expense. Kimmel was commenting on Michelle Obama’s desire to keep the president and the nation healthy. Then Kimmel says, “Look, it’s Chris Christie. Get him!”

“You know, they say that inside every American governor there’s a president struggling to get out,” he adds. “In Chris Christie’s case, it’s the only one where you can still hear him screaming.” Finally, he says, “Governor Christie, I think you might be misunderstanding New Jersey’s slogan—it’s not ‘The Olive Garden State’.”

The whole exchange starts at 4:36 in the video.
