It’s gotta be awfully lonely being Chris Christie these days. The New Jersey governor and flailing presidential candidate has been teetering between one and two percent in the polls for months and he doesn’t seem to be gaining much ground.
Now, with the Iowa caucuses just a few days away, he’s campaigning harder than ever. And grossing us all out in the process.
This morning, Christie used a very unfortunate Rocky metaphor while discussing the upcoming Iowa caucuses on Morning Joe this morning.
“I feel like I’m going to start pounding the meat, Joe,” Christie said. “Pounding the meat!”
Clearly the girthy governor is not familiar with Urban Dictionary‘s definition of that phrase. Or maybe he is?
In any event, the comment brings to mind this totally grody GIF that began circulating online a few years back. No, it’s not actually Christie. (Thank God!) But it looks like him. And that’s bad enough.
Here’s the video of this morning’s interview. Fast forward to the 5:30 mark to hear Christie talk about “pounding the meat.” Or don’t.
Sorry to have ruined your day.
