Barbara Walters Asks Chris Christie If He’s Too Fat To Be President

“That’s ridiculous, I mean, that’s ridiculous,” Christie said during a segment for Walters’ Most Fascinating People special.

Walters: There are people who say that you couldn’t be president because you’re so heavy. What do you say to that?

Christie: That’s ridiculous, I mean, that’s ridiculous. I mean I don’t know what the basis for that is.

Walters: I think they’re worried about your health.

Christie: Well, I’ve done this job pretty well and I think people watched me for the last couple weeks and during Hurricane Sandy doing 18-hour days and getting right back up the next day and still being just as effective so I don’t really think that would be a problem.
