New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, whose weight has often been a topic of conversation, demonstrated his trademark brashness on Friday when a reporter asked him about snack food maker Hostess’ announcement that it was going out of business.

“Really, seriously, you’re not asking me about Hostess Twinkies are you?” Christie said. “You think you’re getting me behind this microphone having me talk about Twinkies? This is a setup, man, I know it! You people are the worst — this is a setup! I am not answering questions on Twinkies! No, no, no, no — it’s bad that I even said the word Twinkie from behind this microphone!
