“No matter what side of the fence you’re on, you have to admit [Michelle Obama] has done a lot of good work, she just wants us to be healthy, really is all,” said Kimmel. Mrs. Obama, I thank you for that. Look, it’s Chris Christie, get him!”
“Gov. Christie, I think you might be misunderstanding New Jersey’s slogan,” quipped Kimmel. “It’s not the Olive Garden state.”
President Obama was second only to Jimmy, who made jokes about Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin, racking up some 686 tweets per minute.
