CHRIS CHRISTIE/MEDIA/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “When Chris Christie first met Donald Trump, over dinner at the Manhattan restaurant Jean-Georges in 2002, the developer ordered for both of them. This power move has received insufficient study. When Zadie Smith met Jay-Z, he did this to her, too. ‘Apparently,”’ she wrote about the encounter, ‘I look like the fish-sandwich type.’ Trump had waiters bring Christie the seared scallops and the roasted lamb loin. ‘I’m allergic to scallops,’ Christie recalls in his new memoir, ‘Let Me Finish: Trump, the Kushners, Bannon, New Jersey, and the Power of In-Your-Face Politics.’ He adds, ‘I’ve always hated lamb.’ The future governor of New Jersey was gleaning lessons in domination. He was an apt pupil. ‘Let Me Finish’ is a superficial and ungainly book that tries to cover so many bases at once — it’s a series of attacks and justifications, it’s a master class in sucking up and kicking down, it’s a potted memoir, it’s a stab at political rehabilitation — that reading it is like watching an octopus try to play the bagpipes.”
