Chris Christie Made a Comment About Birth Control — Watch for the Subtle Reaction From the Guy in Front

Video

"I've used birth control and not just the rhythm method."

Republican presidential hopeful Chris Christie drew chuckles from the crowd Monday night when he addressed the topic of birth control at a town hall meeting in Manchester, New Hampshire. But perhaps the best reaction in the crowd was a silent one.

"I'm a Catholic, but I've used birth control and not just the rhythm method," the New Jersey governor said.

Some laughed at the mention of this latter natural family planning method — which involves avoiding unprotected sex on days when a woman might be most fertile — while the man in the white shirt and red tie simply put his forehand in his hand. He seemed to later play it off as an itch.

"My church has a teaching against birth control. Does that make me an awful Catholic, because I believe and practiced that function during that part of my life? I don't think so," Christie continued. "But you know what, I'm only going to find out when it's my time to be judged."
