David Letterman once altered a video to make it look as if Gov. Christie was preparing a turkey in the middle of an MSNBC-TV interview. He has also depicted the New Jersey governor struggling to get out of a chair during an Oprah interview.
Letterman even devoted an entire "Top 10" list to Christie fat jokes: What if Christie were president? "Instead of Iraq, we'd invade IHOP." And: "The cabinet now has a Secretary of Cake."
On Monday night, the governor got his payback.
He made his first appearance ever on Late Night With David Letterman, and, according to highlights released by CBS, the governor at one point pulled a doughnut out of his pocket - and took a bite.
