Too Fat to be President

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has been known for his combative personality and large stature. In an interview that aired on ABC, Barbara Walters asked Gov. Chris Christie if he is too fat to be president. “No, that’s ridiculous. I mean that’s ridiculous. I mean I don’t know what the basis is,” Christie responded..

Cacomorphobes (people who fear fat people) took to Twitter to weigh in on the subject.

Interesting. Apparently the litmus test for president should involve a fitness test.

Imagine the backlash if a conservative were to say that anyone is “too [insert anything here] to be president.”

Let’s not forget to give Barbara a pat on the back for tackling the really tough journalistic questions.

I love how Barbara Walters gets into the minds of the unnamed “they” when asking Christie if he’s too fat bit.ly/TV7Dpy

Apparently Barbara Walters has never heard of William Taft. bit.ly/VWyS5n (While pretending she’s not prejudiced against fat people)
