Kimmel Takes Swipe At Christie During Dinner [VIDEO]

No one or no subject was off limits to host Jimmy Kimmel at the annual White House Correspondents Dinner Saturday night in Washington including Governor Chris Christie.

Kimmel brought Christie’s weight into his sites according to the Hollywood Reporter. “You might be misunderstanding the New Jersey state slogan,” said Kimmel. “It’s not the ‘Olive’ Garden State.”

After talking about Michelle Obama’s food and nutrition program, Kimmel said “Look, it’s Chris Christie,” Kimmel told the first lady. “Get him!”

Christie was in the audience sitting with Sofia Vergara and the cast of ABC’s Modern Family.

Christie’s choice for President, Mitt Romney, was not safe either from Kimmel’s barbs. “We would absolutely elect a Mormon president,” he said of the hopeful’s critics, “just not Mitt Romney.”
