New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is so mad, you guys. Right, right, he’s always mad. But listen, some lady doctor from the Clinton White House days had the audacity to state the obvious this week when she said maybe his weight would make him not live all the way through a presidency and that he should do some things to not die before he tries to “run.”
Dr. Connie Mariano, who was President Bill Clinton’s doc:
He is at risk of a heart attack at that size, he could have sleep apnea, stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes. And coming to the White House, which is a pressure cooker and there is more stress involved, long hours, lots of travel, which makes those things worse unless they were healthier.
I’m worried about this man dying in office
Makes sense, no? No. Especially not to Chris Christie. He held a press conference wherein he told everybody this lady should “Shut up.” He also called her a “hack” and said she should examine him before she made any of those claims. Dude, she did. She looked at you. It is that obvious.
Also obvious, Governor Christie seems to be a bit touchy when it comes to criticism from the ladies. The Gov has a history of straight up coming out of his face with the full-on raging, bullying, fat-finger-pointing, threatening blowhard act that has made him so beloved among GOP assholes, whenever a female-type person has the temerity to question, criticize, or otherwise fail to bow-down to his massive presence.
Remember the Romney campaign hilarity? When some women in the audience said something about job numbers going down in Jersey? And Christie got all potty-mouth and in-their-place-putting on those gals? Who did they think they were to question his obvious genius handling of all things economic? “You know, something may be going down tonight, but it ain’t going to be jobs, sweetheart.” And then there was the lady teacher he told giggled too much for him to have any respect for her question? Giggling girls are just the worst.
Then there was that weird GOP Convention speech where he went on about his Mom, who was the enforcer in his family? “In the automobile of life, Dad was just a passenger. Mom was the driver.” OF THE BUS CHRIS CHRISTIE JUST THREW HIS DAD UNDER?
Or hey Chris, maybe listen to the words of those Springsteen albums? They could teach you a thing or two about how to talk to a gal, because it would seem as though you have some serious issues with women who dare to speak at you. Perhaps you could maybe swallow some of that aggression instead of whatever it is that is making you such an obvious worry to the weight-watchers of the world, and then they would shut up.
