President Donald Trump is proving to be the worst kind of toxic friend to Governor Chris Christie.
The New Jersey governor and his wife, Mary Pat, went to hang out at the White House this week, but he didn't get to do what he wanted to do.
Specifically, he didn't get to eat what he wanted to eat.
Remember when you were a kid and you'd go over to your friend's house to play dress up and she'd make you be servant Cinderella while she got to be Princess Cinderella?
That's basically what happened at the White House between Trump and Christie. Christie said Trump made him order the meatloaf for lunch.
Yeah, no, that's a real thing.
On a New York sports radio show on Thursday, February 16, Christie said,
This is what it's like to be with Trump. 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.'
So at least they both had to be the servant Cinderella, I guess?
Apparently, the president said,
I'm telling you, the meatloaf is fabulous.
Now here's the thing: I don't care how goddamn good the meatloaf is. If the meatloaf is fabulous, but I'm in the mood for pasta and the president demands I order the meatloaf, I'm gonna be pissed (especially if this is a rare opportunity to dine at the White House with White House chefs, which is a neat thing).
Then again, we all know by now Christie will do just about anything Trump tells him to do.
After dropping out of the presidential election last February (yes, it was only 12 months ago), Christie turned around and endorsed Trump shortly after.
It was... not a good look.
And then Trump turned around and kicked Christie out of his inner circle after he won the election, meaning all of the sucking up couldn't even land Christie the attorney general position.
Hope you enjoyed that meatloaf, Chris. Sounds like you'll be eating a lot of it as long as Trump is president.
