Failed presidential candidate and four-year Trump adviser Chris Christe opened up to CNN’s Dana Bash about how all those comments about his weight actually made him tougher:

From her interview:

“I could be talking about the Iran nuclear deal and I’ll get a response from somebody on email or Twitter or Facebook or wherever saying, ‘You fat S.O.B. You blah, blah, blah,'” he said in the second episode in Bash’s “Being…” series, which aired in full on Monday at 10 p.m. ET. “I’m like, ‘Okay, well, what’s that have to do with the Iran nuclear deal?’ One of the amazing things to me — and like I said, I think it’s made me tougher — is that no one sees that as a problem.”

And Christie said “it’s been extraordinary . . . to watch that” comments about a person’s weight are still acceptable:

Commenting on the fact that public remarks about someone’s appearance have generally become unacceptable in recent years, Christie told Bash that “it’s been extraordinary to me to watch that that applies to everything about a person except for the weight.”

Yet, Christie stayed by Trump the entire time:

You know, maybe Christie should have said something at the time he was being publicly humiliated. That’s how it works.
