Gov. Christie Reconfirms That He’s Not Running, Talks About Fat Jokes

Chris Christie has reaffirmed, reconfirmed, said again, and stated one more time that he’s not running for President of the U.S. And, yes, yes, he can confirm that he’s also overweight.

In a lengthy press conference that had tweeters wondering how much longer it would continue, Christie said, he would stick with New Jersey and his job as Governor.

“For me the answer was never anything but no,” he also said. Which is what we thought he had been saying all this time. Because it turns out he was.

Also, when asked about all the jokes about his weight, he said all he asked was that the jokes be funny. In a very human and calm response, he said,” you gotta know who you are” and that he’s “fair game” as a public figure.
