SEA GIRT – Gov. Chris Christie lashed out against a former presidential physician Wednesday, saying the doctor who spoke on national TV about the governor’s weight “should shut up.”
The governor responded to statements former White House doctor Connie Mariano, M.D., made on CNN Tuesday evening, in which the physician to former President Bill Clinton said she’s “worried [Christie] may have a heart attack.”
Mariano also said she feared Christie “may have a stroke.”
The comments caused Christie to lash out before reporters, describing the doctor as a “hack” looking for five minutes of fame and calling her comments “irresponsible.”
“I find it fascinating that a doctor in Arizona who’s never met me [and] never examined me … could make a diagnosis from 2,400 miles away. She must be a genius,” he said. “This is just another hack who wants five minutes on TV.”
Christie described one of his young sons seeing the interview last night, saying the 12-year-old asked, “Dad, are you going to die?”
“My children saw that last night,” he said. “It’s completely irresponsible.”
