Trump Fat-Shames a Heckler and More from This Week's Political Insult-o-Rama 2016
"He needs to get some sleep and shut up," Chris Christie also said of John Kerry this week
It wouldn’t be a day that ends in “y” without Donald Trump saying something offensive.
On Wednesday night, he focused his energy on fat-shaming an audience member who heckled him during a speech in Worcester, Massachusetts.
As the heckler (the second of three at that night’s event) was escorted out of the building and the crowd started chanting “We need Trump!” the GOP presidential hopeful let it rip: “You know, it’s amazing. I mentioned food stamps and that guy who’s seriously overweight went crazy. He went crazy. It’s amazing.”
Trump wasn’t the only one making school-yard slights on Wednesday. His GOP rival Chris Christie took aim at Secretary of State John Kerry for suggesting that al Qaeda’s attack on the Charlie Hebdo offices in January had some “rationale” compared to Friday’s “indiscriminate” attacks on Paris.
“He needs to get some sleep and shut up, is what he needs,” the New Jersey governor said of Kerry in an interview with Fox News Wednesday.
“That’s disgraceful,” Christie added. “For the secretary of state of the United States to stand up and say that there’s some rationale for what happened in January? These are the kind of weak, mixed signals that this administration sends that helps to really make the American people think that there’s no one watching the store – and there isn’t.”

Also on Wednesday, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz responded to President Obama‘s criticism that the GOP hopefuls are “scared of widows and 3-year-old orphan” refugees by challenging the president to “insult me to my face.”
“He talked about how he was belittling the Republican field as scared,” Cruz said. “Well, let me suggest something: Mr. President, if you want to insult me, you can do it overseas, you can do it in Turkey, you can do it in foreign countries. But I would encourage you, Mr. President – come back and insult me to my face.”
