Trump forced Chris Christie to eat meatloaf, shit sandwich was not on menu

New Jersey governor Chris Christie told a reporter that President Donald Trump made him order meatloaf when they ate a meal together at the White House this week.

It's hard to believe it, people, but yes. This is where we are.

When will Trump's ritual humiliation of New Jersey's most hated politician end? It's no fun if you hate them both.

From the Boston Globe:

Christie and his wife, Mary Pat, joined Trump at the White House on Tuesday.

The Republican governor said while guest hosting a New York sports talk radio show Thursday that Trump pointed out the menu and told people to get whatever they want. Then he said he and Christie were going to have the meatloaf.

‘‘This is what it’s like to be with Trump,’’ Christie said. ‘‘He says, ‘There’s the menu, you guys order whatever you want.’ And then he says, ‘Chris, you and I are going to have the meatloaf.’’’

Trump said ‘‘I’m telling you, the meatloaf is fabulous,’’ according to Christie.

Trump and Christie discussed the nation’s opioid epidemic during the lunch.

Christie on Wednesday signed a series of bills he requested to address the crisis, including a five-day limit on initial prescriptions for opioids and mandating state-regulated insurance plans cover treatment.

He said he didn’t talk with Trump about any jobs.

    I keep picturing Ramsay Bolton watching how Trump treats Chris Christie, shaking his head and muttering "Man, that's going too far."

  3. Chris Christie follows Trump like a puppy. He even spiked Rubio's candidacy for Trump. And Trump insults him, over and over.

    What is it with Republicans? They take insults, they ignore policy, they compromise principles. They just don't seem to care about anything, except how to protect the leader they all "hated" during the primaries.

    Party over country, or values, or civilization, I guess. Sigh,

  4. In the big scheme of how many ways Trump is an asshole, this is actually small potatoes, but there IS a difference between "We're having the meatloaf" and "You've got try the meatloaf, it's amazing." I'll point out to the younger readers here that this is also somewhat emasculating. Back in the back when, it was considered normal for the man on a date to order for both him and his date. So by ordering for Christie he's also saying "you're my bitch." And yes, when it was normal for men to do this for women it was that strange mix of power, enforced dependence, and paternalism.
    ETA: I believe that the theoretical justification for men ordering for women back in the day, is that the man was paying and that prevented him from having a problem if his date ordered a more expensive meal that he could afford to pay for. That etiquette rule pre-dates the time when most people had credit cards.
