Rev. Al to Chris Christie

I Can Help You

KEEP the Weight Off

5/7/2013 11:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

050713_al_sharpton_launchAl Sharpton wants to be the Mickey to Chris Christie's "Rocky Balboa" ... telling TMZ he'll personally train the Gov's obese ass to ENSURE he doesn't regain the weight he's lost after Lap-Band surgery.

Sharpton -- who's dropped a ton of weight WITHOUT the use of surgery -- was in NYC today when we asked if he feels voters will judge Christie negatively for using the Lap-Band shortcut, instead of dropping the poundage through diet and exercise. 

Rev. Al essentially told us the ends justify the means ... and insists Christie needs to focus on maintaining the weight loss ... even offering to be Christie's "maintenance man."

But the weight loss doesn't guarantee votes, according to Rev. Al ... who pointed out, "I lost weight, I'm still not president."

Solid point.

Lapband is not theeasy way out. Its a tool that if a strict diet is not followed will actually cause more problems. If he does not follow drs instructions he will actually gain more weight. Be informed before passing judgement

Rev. Al should be prez. He's done a fine job for every one here in NY and he could for the whole country. Chris Crisco, forgettaboutit. Fat, thin, it don't matter.

Surgery does not make it easier to lose weight--actually makes it harder. You still have to have willpower, even MORE so after weight loss surgery because the effects of over-eating are very quick and dramatic (think explosive vomiting). A friend had this surgery years ago and has only lost about 15 pounds because she still struggles with willpower to say no to bad foods. It is not a guarantee to lose weight.

"I lost weight and I'm still not president".

Hey, Al, that's 'cause you're a freakin' imbecile. You haven't got the brains to find your way home, much less run the country.

Chris Christie = traitor for personal gain (so he thinks). Al=race pimp who never helps anyone but himself. Not shocking two career lowlifes would jump in bed together. Hey sheep, google "Tawanna Brawley scam". The real heroes of racial relations are Republicans like Abe Lincoln, MLK and Rosa Parks. I dare anyone to dispute it, especially while claiming membership in the KKK founding democrat party.

That's right folks...Governor, meet Tawana Brawley! Get with that for an hour, guarantee you'll lose 5 pounds. Just don't let the media find out.
