Chris Christie: May I Be Frank?

Shut up. That's Chris Christie's advice to the doctor who worried in public this week about his weight. "You may not agree with me all the time," the Republican New Jersey Governor has said, "but you never have to wonder what I'm saying." On Feb. 6, after he described himself on David Letterman's show as "basically the healthiest fat guy you've ever seen in your life," former White House doctor Connie Mariano told CNN she was "worried about this man dying in office." Christie called her "a hack" and said she should "shut up" unless she examines him. The good doctor joins Democrats, Republicans, unions and even a heckler on the Jersey boardwalk, who have all come to know the tongue-lashings of Chris Christie.
