Time Magazine Runs Incredibly Subtle Chris Christie Cover

Christie the "elephant." Get it? Because he's a Republican?

Posted on November 7, 2013, at 12:21 p.m. ET

This isn't the first time the magazine has controversially used Christie's image on its cover. In January, after dubbing a very serious-looking Christie "THE BOSS," the governor joked that he would report the magazine to the "anti-Italian defamation league."

"I mean, come on," Christie said at the time. "I can't wait for that to come home for my kids to see it."

But this time — with the joke more about Christie's weight than his tough-guy image — no one is impressed:

I get the double joke (GOP!) but it seems very rude to use the word "elephant" for an overweight person http://t.co/3M2hm9QGp9

Attacking Chris Christie's weight is hack lame & demeaning. Try sharpening up your policy knowledge instead of just fat shaming.
