Chris Christie Slow Jams The News (Video)

Got to love a politician that can poke fun at himself.

Chris Christie acquired some new nicknames Wednesday.

The Love Gov. CC. Christie Kreme, a play off of the popular donut brand … y’know, because of his weight and all.

But during his latest appearance on late-night television, New Jersey’s governor didn’t chomp on pastries. Instead he slow-jammed the news with Jimmy Fallon and company, using song and setup to explain the state’s upcoming special election to fill late Sen. Frank Lautenberg’s seat.

That special election – held three weeks before Election Day – will cost NJ taxpayers $12 million. Opponents argue that the special election was devised to bolster Christie’s own re-election chances.
