New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is known for his combative personality and large stature. In an interview with ABC’s Barbara Walters that will air Wednesday night, Walters asked Gov. Christie if he is too fat to be president. “No, that’s ridiculous. I mean that’s ridiculous. I mean I don’t know what the basis is,” Christie responded.

Cacomorphobes (people who fear fat people) took to Twitter to weigh in on the subject.

What about the content of his character?

Interesting. Apparently the litmus test for president should involve a fitness test.

Imagine the backlash if a conservative were to say that anyone is “too [insert anything here] to be president.”

Let’s not forget to give Barbara a pat on the back for tackling the really tough journalistic questions.
