Barbara Walters Question To Chris Christie About His Weight Draws Criticism
Barbara Walters posed a tough question to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie about his weight and it's become a hot topic. INSIDE EDITION explains.
A tough question from Barbara Walters to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is stirring up controversy.
On The View, Whoopi Goldberg said to Walters, "You made news, child! You asked the question that had a lot of people talking this morning!"
The question came during Walters 10 Most Fascinating People of 2012 show on ABC.
Walters said to Christie, “I am embarrassed to ask this. You are a little overweight.”
Christie responded, “More than a little.”
Walters said, “There are people who say you can't be president because you are so heavy.”
Christie responded, “That's ridiculous. That's ridiculous. If people watched me during the last number of weeks during Hurricane Sandy working 18 hour days, that won't be a problem."
On The View, Walters admitted that it wasn't an easy question to ask.
Walters said, "I hated asking the question, he's a terrific man. But people are worried. If he does run, he's had asthma, he's had this. Should his weight be even a consideration?"
