New Jersey governor Chris Christie is in Israel this week, and the New York Post has taken his visit to the Promised Land as an opportunity to remind us all that Christie is fat.

The Post describes Christie's visit to the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem with the headline "The Whale at the Wall," which is just the tip of the fat-joke iceberg. "Christie made a huge impression at Israel's Western Wall," the Post continues, noting that the "pugnacious" Garden State governor "brought his political heft to the holiest Jewish site in Jerusalem."

Christie's trip has been dubbed "Jersey to Jerusalem."
