Chris Christie Spent Over $82,000 On Food At Sporting Events And Is Becoming MOre Likable By The day
Newsweek- The food budget of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was uncovered on Monday by New Jersey Watchdog, a non-profit investigative publication. About 80 percent of Christie’s $360,000 state allowance has gone toward food and alcohol, Watchdog uncovered.
The governor spent $82,594 at MetLife Stadium in what the publication calls “Christie’s most notable spending spree.” Between 2010 and 2011, Christie made 58 separate purchases at the stadium, which is home to the New York Giants and Jets. That’s an average concession stand bill of $1,424.
For $82,594, Christie could have purchased 13,765 hot dogs, which sell for $6 a piece. Or 6,882 brisket sandwiches, $12 each. He’d need a beer to wash that down and could get a Busch can for 5 bucks. That's 16,518 cans of beer.
I wrote blog last week about how Chris Christie does not give a fuck, and he just keeps dropping gem after gem that supports that very claim. Here is why I am starting to have a soft spot for a man that is made up entirely of soft spots. What's everyone's biggest beef with politicians? That they are conniving, disingenuous pricks that will say anything to appease anyone. Well, not Chris Christie. You don't show up to a professional football stadium and throw back thousands of dollars worth of hot dogs because you care what the public thinks. A couple thousand hot dogs? Thousands of brisket sandwiches? And a beer to wash every single one down? I like to think that I don't let the opinion of others affect my choices, but I'm no Chris Christie. I don't have the gumption, or the budget to order a dozen hot dogs at a time at the stadium. Someone start up this man's campaign. Chris Christie, the People's President. Don't you know a man's prestige directly correlates with his weight? Look back through history one time for me, will ya? That's only reason Christie got lap band surgery, so that he can get it reversed when he becomes president.
People like to think that if they had a ton of excess money that they would spend it on bettering themselves. That's just not reasonable. You would eat 5 star dinners and drink century old wine on a nightly basis. You would indulge yourself in the finer things simply because you can. Seeing 80% of his 360,000 state allowance go to food or booze is further proof that Chris Christie is me. He is you. He is every red blooded American male that wants to watch football and get fat. He just does it so much better than all of us. There's no shame to his game. He's not living some secret life like most politicians. He's out in these streets crushing hot dogs and beer like a real man of the people should. Don't we all just want a president that we can relate to. If you can't relate to a man stuffing his gullet full of mediocre quality food and beer and unbuckling his belt to let it breathe while he watches some football I don't think you deserve a vote in the country.
