TRENTON – Fresh off his inaugural appearance on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Gov. Chris Christie told reporters Friday he “had a great time last night” appearing on the late-night program.
“It’s another one of those things that brings me closer to my children,” Christie joked.
“My 19-year-old son called me from college last night,” he said. “[He] thought it was pretty cool.”
The Republican governor sat down with the Comedy Central television host for nearly 30 minutes discussing Bruce Springsteen, Superstorm Sandy and Christie’s recent decision to veto the state’s proposed health exchange act.
“Jon Stewart and I just turned 50 in the last two months,” Christie said, adding, “We’re the same age [from] the same state. … I know we’re wise guys. He’s a wise guy and so am I.”
Mocked by Bridget Ann Kelly and David Wildstein last year in a text message exchange, Democratic Party/Latino activist Cid Wilson is now the butt of a joke on the Conan Show.Read More >
