When Chris Christie isn’t busy trolling Philadelphia fans, he’s apparently being told what to eat for lunch.
Fresh on the heels of calling Phillies fans “angry, awful people,” Christie revealed on New York sports talk radio that he and his wife, Mary Pat, were invited to the White House on Valentine’s Day to eat lunch with President Trump.
Christie revealed to co-host Craig Carton that when you eat at the White House, there is a menu you can order from. But when you’re dining with Trump, it’s apparently unnecessary.
"This is what it's like to be with Trump,” Christie said. “He says, ‘There's the menu, you guys order whatever you want.’ And then he says, ‘Chris, you and I are going to have the meatloaf.’ ”
“I’m telling you, the meatloaf is fabulous,” Trump insisted, according to Christie.
So what did the failed presidential candidate and aspiring sports radio host do? He ordered the meatloaf.
“It’s emasculating,” Carton jokingly responded. “Another man tells you what you eat and you eat it? Not acceptable. I don’t care who he is.”
“If the president says, ‘You’re eating the meatloaf,’ wouldn’t you be like, ‘I’m an adult, I’ll get what I want, thank you.’ ”
Christie said there was a simple reason why he went with Trump’s suggestion.
“The guy eats there all the time,” Christie said. “And the meatloaf was good.”
Christie was in Washington again on Thursday night to deliver a speech at the annual congressional dinner hosted by the Garden State’s Chamber of Commerce. He warned that the candidates running to succeed him could reverse the progress he said the state has made during his tenure as governor.
“I am fearful as I begin to listen to the start of this campaign that there are promises being made that no checkbook in New Jersey could pay for,” Christie said, urging voters to “beware” what candidates are promising.
Christie was also asked by reporters what he thought of Trump’s free-wheeling press conference Thursday, in which the president spent a good amount time denouncing the news media and declaring that his administration was not chaotic, but a "fine-tuned machine."
"The little bit that I saw?" Christie said, according to NJ.com. "That's Donald Trump."
