Behar to Christie: ‘You’re toast’

NEWARK – TV personality Joy Behar slapped at fellow comedian Joe Piscopo, who has a cable show, taking down Gov. Chris Christie in the process.

“More people have seen Gov. Christie eat a salad,” Behar cracked, standing onstage at a roast for former Gov. Brendan Bryne.

The View star reserved the bulk of her material for Christie.

“First the Velveeta shortage and now the bridge thing,” Behar said. “When I heard about the lane closure I said what the hell is he doing, standing in the middle of the bridge? You had your eye on the White House, it used to be the House of Pancakes.

“Let me put it to you this way, in a way you understand, ‘You’re toast,’” Behar added. “You can do the worst you want on me, Governor, I’m taking mass transit home.”

"He’s obviously working very, very hard at it. I mean he’s traveling all over the country as chairman of the [Republican Governors Association] and I think at this point he has as good a chance or better than anybody else. His name is household word all across the country, and I think he would make a great president."
