Chris Christie, who acted wickedly in a past life and must now mortify himself as Donald Trump’s personal jester, has debased himself once more, having been seen inexplicably pouring a bag of M&Ms into a box of M&Ms. Instead of shrugging off this scandal on account of being A) an adult, B) a U.S. governor, or C) a man with self-respect, he called into a New Jersey talk radio show.
Explaining why you might combine two different containers of M&Ms candies is infinitely more embarrassing than being caught in the act of combining to different containers of M&Ms.

Christie: There’s a bag inside the box, you dope.
Host: Why would you go bag-to-box? Just eat ‘em out of the bag!
Christie: You know why? Because it’s easier to hold the box than to hold the bag.
Host: So you’re saying a bag of M&Ms is in an M&M bag inside a box of M&Ms? Got it, that’s an interesting maneuver.
Host: So it was not to get a bag of mms into... it was jsut transferring the mms from a soft paper into a box?
Christie: You get the box, you ope the box, there’s a bag inside the box, why they do it that way I have no idea, but you open the up the bag, you pour the bag into the box so it’s easier to hold.
Host: Why not just sell it in the box?
Christie: Listen, I run New Jersey, not M&M Mars. I have no idea.
Host: But M&M Mars is in New Jersey.
Christie: It is, of course it is, and it’s a wonderful corporate citizen.
Host: Shut ‘em down!
Christie: We love ‘em. The 75th anniversary of M&Ms, we’re thrilled.
Christie: Even if i was bag-to-bag, how that’s a story, I have no idea.
Left unexplained is why a box is “easier” to hold than a bag, or how Chris Christie can look at himself in a mirror without sobbing.
