As the star of “The Dr. Oz Show” delivered a half-hour speech today to a majority of the nation’s governors, seated a few feet to his left was his No. 1 pupil: New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
Well, the potential 2016 presidential candidate was either taking copious notes on Dr. Mehmet Oz’s tips for a healthly heart or not paying attention at all. He looked up only occasionally from his pen and paper as Oz urged governors to carry nuts in their pocket (to avoid hunger pains that lead to gorging) and have more sex (presumably with their spouses).
Christie, 50, ignored a reporter’s questions after Oz’s speech, delivered to the National Governors Association winter meeting in Washington D.C.
Christie’s health made headlines this month when he called a former White House physician who said he was dangerously overweight a “hack” and said she should “shut up” unless she examines him. The doctor, Connie Mariano, said Christie phoned her to yell at her after she said on CNN that Christie “may have a heart attack.”
