Governor Chris Christie Appears on ‘SNL’: Is It Okay for Him to Joke About Sandy?

When Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast a few weeks ago, it seemed like it might never be a laughing matter. After all, the devastating super storm raged in various levels of intensity from Jamaica to Canada. Over 100 lives were lost, power outages and gas lines were plentiful and the damage is estimated to total over $60 billion dollars. Of all the affected areas, New Jersey was one of the hardest hit.
That’s why the Garden State’s Governor has become the poster child of the disaster. In the post-storm, pre-presidential election days, he made headlines by setting politics aside to focus on his citizens in need. But as locals continued to clean up the aftermath of the destruction, Chris Christie took a little time out for a laugh last night. He appeared as himself on “Saturday Night Live” and talked about Sandy with “Weekend Update” host Seth Meyer. Of course he thanked the Red Cross. But he also joked about his short temper and poked fun at his now infamous blue fleece. He even managed to get in a jab at officials who didn’t encourage residents to evacuate like Atlantic City yor Lorenzo Langford before he quoted “saint” Bruce Springsteen.
It was a solid comedic performance, but some might find it inappropriate for the local leader to make light of such a serious situation. What do you think: Is it okay for him to joke about the Sandy?
