Current Event Cat of the Day: Chris Christie

Current Event Cat - Chris Christie

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie knows the secret to long-term weight loss isn’t diet and exercise – it’s secret lap-band surgery.

Chris Christie revealed that he underwent the surgery in February to lose weight after his wife and four kids began worrying about his health. Since then Christie has lost 40 pounds. Unfortunately, he was so fat before, losing 40 pounds doesn’t really make a physical difference.

“I’ve struggled with this issue for 20 years,” he said. “For me, this is about turning 50 and looking at my children and wanting to be there for them.”

Chris Christie also wants everyone to know what it’s NOT about: the 2016 presidential race. Christie insists he is not trying to lose weight for a potential presidential run, but political junkies think otherwise.

“This means he’s running for president. He’s showing people he can get his weight in control. It was the one thing holding him back,” a top political donor told the New York Post. 

Christie’s weight has been an issue in his previous campaigns. In the Republican’s 2009 race for governor, his weight was used against him when Democratic incumbent Jon Corzine’s campaign ran TV ads with extremely unflattering videos of him. You know the old saying saying I just made up; fat president, bigger government!
