(laughter) what am i going to do? we've got a great show. boy george will be joining us on the panel tonight. (cheers and applause) man!
how cool is that right? okay. you know what? i don't know if you know this or not this is interesting. i found this out today. every time a bell rings, an angel laughs, because another republican decides to run for president. (laughter) (applause) >> and that is why today i am proud to announce my candidacy for the republican nomination for president of the united states of america! >> larry: yeah that's right! that's right! chris christie entered the race today. people. you know what that means many time to check in with the unblackening. (laughter and applause) i just love that open. all right. so christie announced his presidential campaign this morning back at his old high school in livingston, new jersey, where he was introduced by some of his old classmates. >> she thought she would be booed by her high school
classmates. she was not. lynn's nickname in high school was the juice. >> juice! hence, it is not a boo. larry: look, guys. the name "juice" is not funny. maybe she was actually on steroids in high school. (laughter) okay? all right. so they weren't booing. they were saying "juice." what made you such a boo expert? (laughter) >> good afternoon, everybody. you've already heard enough speeches, enough speeches of the same thing. (laughter) [ audience boos ] >> larry: oh, years of boo experience. all right. okay. so he's experienced. very good. i'll tell you one guy who wasn't booing. in fact, if there were such a thing as the complete opposite of booing, that's what he was doing. check this out. (applause) (laughter) >> larry: who could possibly be that excited about chris
christie? (laughter) hell, who could possibly be that excited about anything past the age of 3? right? (laughter) there's got to be an explanation. wait. do we have a shot of his feet? let's see. oh oh,! there you go. okay. his feet are on fire! i take the whole thing back. (laughter) those moves are completely justified. quick! juice! pour yourself on his shoes! juice! juice!! all right, chris christie. what are you all about? come on. give me the skinny. that's not a fat joke! that's not a fat joke. (laughter) no, it's just a saying. that's just a saying. lay on me. i mean lay it on me. dodged a bullet there. okay look i know, guys. here's the thing. look, here at "the nightly show," we really don't want to indulge in making fat jokes about chris christie. we think they're easy. they're demeaning. and, frankly, they're just cheap. but from time to time, we may slip up. (laughter) so we just wanted to acknowledge
this -- give you a head's up -- just address the elephant in the room. that's not a fat joke! (laughter) that's not a fat joke! hold on. guy it's that's a -- guys, that's a true saying. also, in this case, it would be the elephant in the gymnasium. right? see? that is a joke. see? see how hard it is? >> that's what she said. larry: oh! (laughter) very good, jeb! (laughter and applause) you're absolutely right. that is what she said! actually. okay, chris, what do you have to say? >> as a candidate for president i want to promise you just a few things. first, a campaign without spin or without pandering or focus focus-group-tested answers. you get what i think whether you like it or not. >> larry: whoa, is he a doctor? because that's really good bedside manner. all right. (laughter) so no spin, no pandering. you're going to make up your own
answers. got it. so far you sound very qualified. okay. let's see if happy feet is still excited. (cheers and applause) all right. okay. he's still jonesin' for you. good job, christie. so tell me, what would your un-focus-group-tested take be on the state of america? >> weak leadership. this weakness and indecisiveness handwringing and evasiveness and in65iveness and an economy that is weak, weak. >> larry: okay. so i'm sensing you think we're weak. and i'm guessing your opinion is that weak is bad, because you had kind of an attitude when you said it. why you gotta be so judgy? (laughter) why you got to be down on america. "usa." hello, aren't you a republican? all right. so how do you plan to eradicate this weakness? >> the courage to stand up. and stand up. stand up and fight. fighting that fight. now ready to fight. (laughter) >> larry: okay. all right. now i'm sensing you want to fight.
(laughter) all right. let me see if i can sum up your political philosophy: everything is weak. you're going to beat it up. and we're going to like it. (laughter) all right, floyd mayweather, good luck to you. (laughter) okay. (cheers and applause) maybe, we'll see. i don't know. i'll tell you what, here to talk about today's announcement is chris christie's high school classmate and town bully, matt caffarelli. (cheers and applause) matt, thanks for being here. >> thanks for having me, nerd. (laughter) >> larry: okay. that's a little weird start. i guess you are the town bully, so i should expect that. okay. what did you think of christie's speech? >> it was boss as hell! honestly, man, i thought he [ bleep ] crushed it! you know what i mean? chris christie is the bully america's been waiting for. (laughter) >> larry: i'm sorry, the bully? what exactly do you mean by that?
>> watch and learn, bob bunson honeydew. >> who you talkin' about? damn, man, i'm governor. could you just shut up for a second? your rear end's going to get thrown in jail, idiot. sit down and shut up. are you -- are you stupid? first off, it's none of your business. >> was that a little blunt, even for you? >> no. (laughter) >> larry: he definitely sounds like a bully. how is that good for america? >> look, america's like a high school -- the last three presidents were a prom king, a dumb jock, and now a friggin' nerd running the joint, you know what i mean? (laughter) it's time for a bully so the natural order can be restored. (laughter) >> larry: wait. (applause) (cheers) so you think the leader of the free world should be a high-school-style bully? >> you got it right four eyes. (laughter) >> larry: wait, why are you picking on me? >> larry, i'm a bully. that's what i do. >> larry: okay. all right. that makes sense. okay. just explain to me, how does chris christie being a bully president -- i dunno -- like,
help us in the middle east? >> middle east? please. why don't you check out this sweet foreign policy right here. >> larry: get the hell off the beach in asbury park and get out. (laughter) >> nailed it. nailed it. >> larry: wait. that's foreign policy? >> listen, pound dexter what is middle east but a pile of sand? it's a giant beach! where all our oil is. which is nice. think about iran. you've got the king of iran emperor of iran, whatever he is. he's trying to build nukes. obama's all like "brbrbr." that's how he sounds. (laughter) chris christie's going to be like, "hey, dumb-dumb, you can't have nukes. i told you! get off our friggin' beach!" >> larry: okay. boom. larry: okay. first of all i don't think i've heard of a foreign policy quite like this.
and it's really not our beach. >> really? (laughter) >> larry: what are you doing? two for flinching, buddy. larry: two for flinching? >> those are the rules. you flinch you get hit! chris christie taught me that. >> larry: all right, fine. but what about domestic issues, like healthcare? >> healthcare? please. we're talking about a guy who literally bullied his weight down. he was like, [ bleep ] you stomach! you know what i mean? he was like, stomach, be smaller. hey, doc, cut me open and put a rubber band around it." you know? and then strangle it. strangle my stomach. (laughter) now he's all like, "hey, stomach. here's a peanut. happy thanksgiving. you know what i mean? (laughter) no no, go to bed, you piece of [ bleep ]." >> larry: hold on. i'm pretty sure that's not how lap-band surgery works. >> that is literally exactly how it works. (laughter) >> larry: that is literally the wrong definition of "literally." >> we're just going to have to agree to disagree. >> larry: we haven't agreed on
anything! >> all right. (laughter) that's all the time we have. we'll be right back. >> larry: no, no, no, you don't get to say that. that's what i say. >> you think you're better than me? >> larry: [ bleep ].

preferably, you would leave it at home and not bring it out on streets. >> larry: you say it's not resourceful. >> it's cowardly in that you won't put your face behind it and it's also exploitation. these are clearly people that needed a buck and so you're paying them to go out and protest for you. >> larry: what was the first question, do you guys read english? oh, good, we have a job for you. (laughter). >> here you go. it's creating employment. i don't know how much they paid them. >> $3 for the whole day probably. they don't give them any money. >> larry: and i think they were being jeered but they're hired to do that. who's more responsible, people who would hire them or people holding up the signs? >> the people that hired them. larry: if somebody hired you to hold up a sign, would you do it? they pay good money. >> well, yeah, if you pay me good -- (laughter) >> i doubt they got paid good money. they did it to do it. but, of course it's the person. look at these guys. these guys didn't know. they probably just hold up the
sign, do it. that one guy was dressed up like a hasidic jew. (laughter) look at that guy! >> larry: oh, my god. come on! larry: what is that? he doesn't look like that. he dressed -- he got the curls and the hat on. >> larry: that's crazy. it's -- i know. he went for it. >> larry: all right. i want to get to chris christie real quick. chris christie is running for president. i feel like he's trying to do this macho image. do we think it's important for america to have a macho president? why does it always seem like that that's a thing? >> i don't think -- i think, look, bottom line chris christie's just -- he's a fat italian guy from new jersey so he's going to come off like -- he's going to jiggle his balls when he does his inaugural address. (laughter) that's just who he is. i got to be honest, look as an italian guy, that's my obama right there. i'm not -- (laughter) >> larry: wait, wait. hold on a second. hold on. hold up. the italian guy jiggling his balls is your obama.

hell he's talking about. i'm not a republican. but he's probably a yankee fan. and i'm going to go for it. i think i'll vote for him. i don't know. (laughter) >> larry: the thing is he got in trouble for hugging obama. have you ever got in trouble for hugging a black guy? (laughter) >> not that i know of. thing with chris christie is you have to be careful of this cult of personality. people just say oh, that's just the way he is. we love that he's so brash. he's telling it like it is. that's his whole campaign message at the moment. you have to look at his policies. this is somebody who could potentially be in a position of power, already in the state where he is the governor new jersey resident it's don't like him. the latest opinion poll shows about 30% -- >> larry: that's why he's getting out, right?t(bz@ñ (laughter). >> the property rate went in new jersey under his watch. the infrastructure is crumbling. he's destroying the public schools and the teacher's union is actually something you should pay attention to.
