April 20, 2020 marks the 10 year anniversary of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history. The explosion killed 11 and the environmental impact extended beyond 57,000 square miles. The human, environmental and economic suffering in the Gulf Coast States continues to this day.
Jimmy Fallon wore a New Jersey lapel pin and Chris Christie ate some Ben and Jerry’s Tonight Dough ice cream last night during the Governor’s appearance on the Tonight Show.
Christie joked that his day job as Governor of New Jersey is keeping him too busy to announce that he is running for president.
Christie and Fallon spent much of the segment joking about fat jokes. Fallon urged Christie to be the hulk. “Be mean be green.” Be the guy who tells people to shut up and sit down. Christie corrected Fallon, “You got it wrong, It’s sit down and shut up.”
