Chris Christie stopped by the Late Show with David Letterman last night, and fat jokes about the New Jersey Governor were flying left and right.

For a change of pace, Christie was the one making them this time.

Typically a good sport about his weight, Christie began by taking out a doughnut and starting to eat it just moments into his interview with Letterman.

"I didn't know this was going to be this long," he deadpanned.

David Letterman (jokingly, mostly, maybe, sort of) predicted that Mitt Romney will lose this year's presidential election due to his snub of The Late Show.

Last week, Dave urged voters to vote against Mitt unless he came on the program. With Romney still reluctant to do so, Letterman now predicts his defeat.

Watch the segment below:

A bunch of celebrities want you to Vote 4 Stuff.

David Letterman wants to make sure you don't vote for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, unless he appears on The Late Show before November 6.

Friday, Letterman couldn't help but notice that election season is rapidly coming to a close, and that Romney hasn't responded to invitations to come on the CBS telecast.

President Obama appeared on Letterman in September.

President Barack Obama stopped by the Late Show With David Letterman last night, and had barely sat down before being asked about the Mitt Romney video.

The secretly-recorded-calling-Obama-backers-entitled-irresponsible-drains-on-society video, which Romney stands by, while acknowledging poor word choice.

Letterman asked Obama for his take on Mitt describing "47 percent of Americans" in this manner, to which he said, "One of the things I learned as president is you represent the entire country ... if you want to be president, you have to work for everyone."

Obama noted that in 2008, 47 percent of America voted for his rival, John McCain.

"This is a big country. And people disagree a lot, but one thing I've never tried to do and I think none of us can do in public office is suggest that because somebody doesn't agree with me that they're victims or they're unpatriotic," he said.

"There are not a lot of people out there who think they're victims. There are not a lot of people who think they're entitled to something."

"We've got some obligations to each other, and there's nothing wrong with us giving each other a helping hand so that that single mom's kid, after all the work she's done ... can afford to go to college, go cure the next disease, go start the next Google."

"I think that's a good investment for America."

While Rush Limbaugh mocks Barack Kardashian, the First Lady of the U.S. is staying out of the political fray and focusing on her new book about gardening.

Michelle Obama, who's been promoting her new book about the White House garden and healthy eating, appeared on the Late Show With David Letterman.

Here are her "Top Ten Fun Facts About Gardening" from Tuesday ...

  1. Gardening was invented in 1822 by Albert Gardener.
  2. Plant avocados, tomatoes, onions and cilantro together and grow a guacamole tree.
  3. Eggplants were originally cultivated for use as doorstops.
  4. In his lifetime, the average American will eat half a radish.
  5. The largest zucchini ever grown contained a Starbucks.
  6. Later this year the Supreme Court will finally rule on "tomato" vs. "tomahto."
  7. If you have an actual green thumb, it might be scurvy.
  8. Lettuce is 96 percent water and 4 percent lettuce.
  9. The White House tool shed contains shovels, trowels and Weed Whacker One.
  10. With enough care and effort you can grow your own Barack-oli.

Her campaign for home-grown diets and to fight obesity has already shown progress. Earlier this year, Michelle even got Jay Leno to eat vegetables. Not a small feat.

In a visit to The Late Show with David Letterman Monday, First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama discussed her relationship with her own parents.

An emotional Michelle, who considers herself the mother of Sasha and Malia above everything else, said her parents instilled in her the values she passes on.

They provided "absolute, complete, unconditional love ... the notion that kids really don't need anything but to know that their parents adore them."

She said she and the president have passed that trait onto their children: "Don't make me cry: This isn't Oprah!” she said. “It's supposed to be Letterman!"

Michelle Obama also discussed her recent incognito trip to Target, which was figured out when a woman asked her to help reach something on a high shelf.

The 48-year-old, who stands 5'10", said after she obliged, the grateful woman joked with her, "You didn't have to make it look so easy!"

"That was my interaction, and it felt so good!" she said.

In desperate need of a bump in the polls, Republican presidential candidate Jon Huntsman might consider making this a regular part of his campaign stops.

The former Utah Governor may trail frontrunners Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul where it counts - name recognition - but are any of them in a band?!

After sitting down with David Letterman last night, Huntsman sat in with the band on a rocking version of the Chuck Berry classic, "Johnny B. Goode." Really.

Watch him play the piano on The Late Show below!

Mitt Romney appeared on the Late Show With David Letterman last night and read a Top 10 list of things he'd like to say to America. Some of them were pretty funny.

The good news for Texas Gov. Rick Perry? This was unquestionably the brightest moment of his White House campaign since his announcement back in August.

The bad news? It only came about due to his unbelievable debate brain freeze the previous night, after which Republican voters likely wrote him off for good.

Might as well make the best of it in any case, right?

The politician, to his credit, poked fun at himself by reading The Late Show with David Letterman's Top 10 List Thursday. The category: Top 10 Rick Perry excuses ...

We won't give them away here, because you should really watch the clip for the full effect. But Mitt Romney's handsomeness and Justin Bieber's paternity are involved.
