Chris Christie Does Jerusalem: Vacation Pix!

I'M PUSHING THIS OVERThe Good Governor Sandwiches of New Jersey, Chris Christie, is in Israel, on his first official overseas trip as head of an American state. (He’s making up for President Obama, who refuses to visit Israel because he Hates Jews.) How many unionized public school teachers will he yell at on YouTube while there? We await the final tally. Until then, let’s check out some photos from his visit to the Western Wall. Here he is, trying to connect with God to make a very important request.

“It is lunchtime, Fancy God Wall. Bring me Taco Bell, please, or a KFC Double Down…”

“Eh, what the hell, this is good enough.”

(Chris Christie is reportedly overweight.)

    Does El Al have a plane big enough to carry him?

    • prommie
    • Mahousu

      Yes, they know their market:

      "EL AL is proud to present a fleet of 11 wide-body aircraft of a unified high standard offering an upgraded flight experience. First Class features exclusive bed-seats, produced by the French SICMA company. The wide state-of-the-art seats afford a flight experience that assures comfortable sleep during the flight. … The seat is equipped with an especially large personal screen …"

      He still had to buy two of them, though.

      Does Allah have the power to satiate that hunger??

      • Data Exactly

        Yes, and Jealous employs the Moses' sons' treatment when it comes time to sleep and dress. You know, walking backwards with the blanket/moo-moo between them both making extra sure not to look at him.

        • heathenette

          I’m a heathen, so I could be wrong-but I think the son’s walking backwards thing was drunk Noah. But I haven’t read any of that stuff for a LONG time…AND I’m a heathen.(ette)

    • HippieEsq

      Ever since Sharon went into his coma….Yes, they do.

    • Dashboard_Jesus

      sweet holy jeebus Christie is the most obese human I've ever seen (outside of Wal-Mart) how is it this guy does not begin every day with a massive heart attack? srsly how could anyone vote for such a grotesquely fat man, for any office, knowing that to become THAT large he must have no self-control or respect for his own physical health whatsoever (of course we know his mental health has already been 'compromised')

      Thank you. I just couldn't figure how to put it. Simplicity wins out.

        • SheriffRoscoe

          So magnanimous. Je t'adore.

          • Extemporanus

            Out of natural courtesy he received, but did not appropriate. It was like a gift placed in the palm of an outreached hand upon which the fingers do not close.

      Yes but only because they don't know how perilously close they are to being consumed.

      Chris Crisco

    • Veritas78

      Which one of him? There are at least two in that picture.

  • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

    Hey, how come Christie wears a yarmulke, but not the Jew in front????

    • MosesInvests

      That's somewhere else, not at the Wall. I guess Gov. Crisco forgot to take it off.

    • CthuNHu

      Because the Jew in front isn't shamelessly pandering for mindshare among American Christians who think all Jews go to hell.

      Makes sense to me. Does it to you?

  • SkinnyNerd

    Is having "GOVERNOR" printed on your yarmulke the equivalent of having your name stitched onto your underwear?

    • Generation[redacted]

      See Mel Brooks in Blazing Saddles

    • vtxmcrider

      … or the name of an anal-seminal frothy mixture stitched on your sweater vest?

    • Callyson

      I did not notice that when I first saw the picture. How much of a gigantic ego does one have to have to place his title on a freaking yarmulke FFS?

    • Veritas78

      There isn't a printing press big enough. Or enough thread in Egypt.

  • Baconzgood

    There is a wall/fat fuck joke there that ends with "Whaling Wall", but I just can't flush it out.

    • nounverb911

      Extemporanus beat you to it anyway.

    • Barb

      I love your joke, Baconz.

  • SpiderCrab

    Sure hope fatty doesn't push that wall over. No wonder that wall is wailing.

  • noodlesalad

    There are about a million things wrong with his "Governor Yarmulke," but it gives me great pleasure to know that somewhere, some unpaid assistant to Sarah Palin is trying to figure out if it would be kosher for her to wear one on the Today Show. (Hint: NO!)

    • Devilette

      Sarah's dilemma for tomorrow – Do I wear the giant Star of David, my gaudy cross belt buckle, or one of my large crosses? I bet she gives the make- up artists and wardrobe folks heartburn.

      • CthuNHu

        All of them, Katie!

  • Barb

    I believe Chris Christie should practice girth control.

    • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

      Well, he does use condiments.

      • reliefsinn

        Yes, but which condiments?

        All of them, Katie

        Sorry, figured I had to answer my own post since this was an old thread.

    Somebody stop him! In that first photo Chris Christie looks like he's going to push over the Wailing Wall (with his considerable heft he just might be able to do it), and in the last picture he looks like he's going to have that infant as a snack.

  • Schmannnity

    Is he reading a menu in the middle picture?

    • LastGasp

      Well, Chris Christie is a Roman Catholic, so if he's holding a copy of the Torah he has no idea what the Hebrew verses mean. Then again, if he's holding a copy of the Bible while standing in front of the Wailing Wall then… that makes no sense.
      Maybe he is holding a menu…

    Pardon my ignorance (as you always do), but is it customary for yarmulkes to bear one's name/title? I'm guessing CC's starts as "World's Largest ________."

    • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

      It's not unusual for the owner to have his name stitched in, no.

    That dude is really over weight. I mean that can't be good for his health. It's really hard to think how someone lets themselves go like that. Doesn't his DR. tell him about cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes?

    • widestanceromance

      Snark on.

      No, he just writes CC another prescription for butter capsules.

    • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

      He's been hospitalized since he took office, even, for "respiratory distress"

    • DaRooster

      Thank God for Gubmint health care huh?

    • http://Wonkette.com DemmeFatale

      Yeah, Baconz, he should look into weight-loss surgery. Now.
      I'm sure his doctors warn him a lot, but he probably doesn't think he has time to cope with it.
      His window to deal with this is closing.
      Sorry about the lack of snark.
      (Wife of an ex-fattie.)

    I hope they have something like the Taft bathtub over there, because it can get very sweaty in Isreal for the big people.

  • Warwhatgoodfor

    Back in my medical student days in the great state of Ioway, we used to note such, shall we say, rotund individuals in Iowa units. An Iowa unit was fifty pounds on the hoof. I'd put him down at about 7 IU, give or take a little. Maybe an 8. It was also acceptable to point out they were the same size from top to bottom as side to side.

  • http://www.gurukalehuru.wordpress.com gurukalehuru

    Man, from the chest up he looks obese. From there on down he looks morbidly obese. I've never seen aynthing like it.

  • MRjonz

    Well, now that Christie has been to Israel, by Republican standards, he now knows absolutely everything you need to know about American Foreign Policy; “The Bucks Stop Here.”

    And the yarmulke with “Governor” in white lettering on it is a classy touch.

    Bonus quip: Now they know who to get for the remake of “Cast A Giant Shadow.”

    • Man0nTheStreet

      The reasons reichwingers lurve the Israel is two-fold, based on whether they're part of the GOoPer 1% or the GOoPer 99%.

      The 1% are happy that Israel is the perfect (westernized) wealthy (heavily-subsidized) well-located (near OUR mid-east oil) market for the US War Machine output;

      The 99% are convinced that it's where Jesus lives, and he will be handing out gold Ameros and McD's franchises to the True Christians (English-speaking White Americans) after Armageddon clears the world of Blahs/Joos/Kweers/Mooselims.
