Chris Christie Makes Angry Phone Call To Doctor

Chris Christie Makes Angry Phone Call to Doctor

Chris Christie may have looked like he was joking with David Letterman the other night but he was his usual bullying self when he called a Scottsdale, Arizona doctor to lambaste her. As KTVK notes, "Dr. Connie Mariano was the White House doctor for nine years, encompassing parts of both Bush administrations and the entire Clinton presidency." So perhaps she does know a thing or two about the stresses involved in being a president.

Dr. Connie Mariano, the former White House doctor who drew the ire of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) for saying his obesity was not healthy -- he called her a "hack" -- actually got a phone call from the governor, KTVK-TV reports.

Said Mariano: "It was essentially the tone of the press conference only louder. It was hard to get anything across."

Ironically, Mariano said she is a Republican and liked Christie but said her future support for him in a 2016 presidential campaign is damaged:

"The way he acted lately I don't think so. He wasn't very nice to me. Politically if this is the way he handles stress... is this presidential? I'll have to think about that. Is this a presidential way to behave? C'mon."
