‘He Can’t Win’: Marc Lamont Hill Says Christie Is Too Fat to Be President

"He does not have the body type to win a national election."

Dr. Marc Lamont Hill is a professor at a Columbia University affiliate. For several years he was a Fox News contributor until a much publicized firing over his support for the notorious Assata Shakur.  He is still a frequent guest on numerous cable news programs.

He acknowledges his comments about Christie will be controversial, but he is firm in his conclusion:  "He does not have the body type to win a national election."


“He can’t win, let’s be honest,” Hill said. “I’m going to say this and don’t get mad – he’s fat.”

“He’s fat for a politician. He doesn’t have the body type to win. There are other issues – look at that,” Hill said as he looked at an image of Christie.

Hill says people still vote on appearance.

“Look at Sarah Palin,” Hill said.

Hill said he expected some people to outraged by his comments.
