While Letterman questioned Christie about his feelings about the jokes, the politician pulled out a donut and began chowing down. "I didn't know this was gonna be this long," Christie mock-apologized.
Though Christie's weight might be a serious issue if he decides to run for president in 2016, he said he had no problem laughing it off — as long as the jokes were good. "I only care if you're funny. From my perspective, if the joke is funny, I laugh, even if it's about me," Christie told Letterman.
