Joel McHale burns Chris Christie as a 'glutton for punishment'

White House Correspondents' Dinner emcee and The Soup host Joel McHale pulled no punches Saturday night in skewering everyone and everything in Washington. But he reserved his harshest criticisms for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R), dinging the governor again and again as, more or less, a big fat jerk.

You could see where the night was going when McHale opened by saying he hoped to make the event be "amusing and over quickly, just like Chris Christie's presidential bid." After laying into the governor a few more times, McHale then mocked Christie's supposed Bridgegate vindication — Christie-appointed lawyers determined the governor had nothing to do with the incident — by exonerating his own participation in his Christie jokes.

"I just looked into it," McHale joked. "It turns out I'm not responsible for it. Justice has been served." --Jon Terbush
