Christie Looking Presidential? - My9 New Jersey

Christie Looking Presidential?

Posted: Updated:

Sibile chases the story about Governor Christie’s weight.  She takes a look at his February lap-ban procedure and sees how his health is doing about 6-months later.  While the Governor never says how much he weighs, it is estimated to be 300-350 pounds. 

Sibile took this story a step further and met up with a young “Christie-look-a-like”, Mark Reynolds to discuss the challenges of being overweight. 

Reynolds said that some of the easiest tasks for people can be the hardest on somebody who is overweight.  This included just bending down to feed his cat, vacuuming, washing his car, and even just walking.

Sibile then compared Christie to former President Taft who was 5’11 and 335 pounds.  Christie is also 5’11 and is estimated to be very close to the same weight.  So,  if we’ve had an overweight President before, can we do it again?

Well, back in the studio the chasers debate the topic of weight in a Presidential candidate.  Some feel that this shouldn’t matter, and others feel that it’s a health concern and the leader of the free world needs to set a good example.

    California based Oaksterdam University believes marijuana is the next big industry and this weekend they brought their classes to the Bally's Casino in Atlantic City to teach people the techniques and laws behind growing marijuana. Since 2007 Oaksterdam has taught over 20,000 students how to grow marijuana and their dean, Dr. Aseem Sappal, believes that legalization is inevitable so it makes sense to be prepared.

    New Jersey Transit bus commuters have consistently been complaining about late buses, and only recently NJT has really begun working to fix the problem. NJT has been using new data that shows that buses only show up on-schedule 68% of the time. In June, the transit system said that buses were on-schedule 86% of the time, but their previous method for measurement wasn't quite up-to-par.
