Chris Christie recently appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and even danced with him.
Chris Christie made an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. He made a joke about how he could defeat Hillary Clinton in matters having to do with dancing. The New Jersey governor was his usual hefty self. He may be a bit obese but that does not mean he is not smart.
Chris is a very astute and shrewd observer of life and everything in it. No wonder he has progressed so far in politics. And while scandal has touched his governorship, the Republican candidate got back his approval ratings on track after Hurricane Sandy when he made a series of live addresses on television. It all started off by Fallon asking Christie if he was hypothetically the future presidential wannabe.
According to CNN, Fallon 'asked Christie to consider a hypothetical situation in which the Garden State governor were to run for the White House in 2016 against Democrat Hillary Clinton. "Do you think you could beat her?" asked Fallon. "You bet," Christie answered. "In a dance off," Fallon asked. "That's what I was talking about. What were you talking about?" added Christie'.
Christie answered in the affirmative. Then he was questioned whether he stood a chance of beating Hillary Clinton. To this he responded that yes he could. Finally Fallon joked whether this included in the field of dance. And here Christie actually said that it was what he had in mind since the beginning of the show.
Hillary Clinton has a memoir out in recent times titled “Hard Choices”. And since she has been making her views public her popularity ratings have gone sky high. She leads Christie by 45% to 38%.
During the show Jimmy Fallon hosts, he (Christie) danced with Fallon in a mock effort at drumming up support. His skit was called “The Evolution of Dad Dancing.” It almost reminded everyone of Michelle Obama’s appearance last year on the show. Christie almost gave up at one stage of the various dance skits. Then he returned to finish off the boogie-woogie moves with Fallon.
“I’m not Wayne Newton and this ain’t Vegas,” Christie said. “I do one show a night, everybody. I did my show last night on Jimmy Fallon. If I started to do it now, Kashkari would feel like he had to start to dance. You gotta get elected first before you could do that kind of dancing, believe me.”
By the way, Bruce Springsteen is Chris Christie’s all-time favorite musician. He too once appeared on The Tonight Show and performed “Born to Run” which made fun of the politicking scandalmongers among Christie’s opponents. When Christie appeared in public he was requested to dance by a reporter but he declined the invitation.
A Bloomberg National Poll shows "Clinton leading Christie, 45 percent to 38 percent, among likely 2016 voters. Christie won re-election in November. Then e-mails surfaced in January that showed aides used the closing of access lanes to the bridge to punish Fort Lee’s Democratic mayor, who didn’t endorse the governor.
An April poll from Quinnipiac University found Christie with a 49 percent approval rating among New Jersey voters, down from a high of 74 percent in February 2013."
Christie spoke of how he wasn’t Newton John and that this wasn’t a Vegas show going on. He said that a single night of dancing on The Tonight Show was enough for him. Maybe he would dance again after he was elected though.
