Is It Probably Unhealthy to Be a Big, Fat, Fatso Like Chris Christie?
Believe it or not, the drama between a Scottsdale doctor and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is still ongoing.
Earlier this week, former White House doctor and current Scottsdale resident Connie Mariano gave her medical opinion on Christie, and wouldn't ya know -- the medical community tends to believe being a gigantic fatso is unhealthy.
Christie got a little heated about Mariano saying on CNN that she's "worr[ied] about this man dying in office" -- which Christie later told reports his son saw on TV.
"She should probably be the surgeon general of the United States, I suspect because she must be a genius," Christie said. "This is just another hack who wants five minutes on TV."
(The actual Surgeon General's "Call to Action to Prevent and Decrease Overweight and Obesity" can be found here.)
Mariano gave the perfect response to Bloomberg, pointing out that you don't have to be a doctor to notice that he's a fatso.
After that, Mariano then told CNN's Anderson Cooper that Christie actually called her, and in her description of that phone call, said "the words 'gracious' and 'appreciative' do not come to mind."
