Governor Christie to Doctor: “Shut Up”

Letterman’s jokes are one thing, but a doctor’s warning is pushing the issue for the Governor.

According to

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie took on a former White House doctor Wednesday who said he was at risk of dying in office because of his weight, calling her a “hack” and telling her to “shut up” unless she examines him.

Dr. Connie Mariano, who was President Clinton’s doctor in the White House, went on CNN and said, “I’m worried about this man dying in office” after Christie confronted his own weight issue head-on at a press conference Tuesday.

“I find it fascinating that a doctor in Arizona who has never met me, never examined me, never reviewed my medical history or records, knows nothing about my family history, could make a diagnosis from 2400 miles away,” the traditionally tough-talking governor said. “She must be a genius. She should probably be the surgeon general of the United States, I suspect, because she must be a genius.”

Was the doctor out of bounds in her comments?

Does it concern you that Christie is so overweight even though he says he’s in good health, and would that play into your decision to vote for him for President if he ran?
