Christie, whose testicles were dissed last year by Ted Cruz's campaign manager, said he went to the White House Tuesday for a Trump lunch. "This is what it's like to be with Trump, okay?" Christie said. "He says, 'There's the menu, you guys order whatever you want.' Then he says, 'Chris, you and I are gonna have the meatloaf.'" According to Christie, Trump didn't force anyone else at the table to consume meatloaf:

Christie's recent history with Trump is, to say the least, absolutely loaded with meatloaf-sized ups and downs. Christie, who also ran for president last year before eventually succumbing to a Trump endorsement, was once considered a possible contender for a cabinet position. Sources claimed in December that Trump hadn't snubbed Christie, arguing that he had actually turned down multiple offers. The jobs offered, these sources claimed, ranged from Homeland Security secretary to a White House advisory role.

And now he's eating meatloaf.
