White House Doctor Feels Chris Christie Would Die In Office
Connie Marino, former White House M.D. and want to be television personality feels that Governor Chris Christie could die in office. Especially if he was to one day become president. So how could he be deemed fit to run the state of New Jersey. It is widely perceived by some that anyone who was obese in this country should never be allowed to hold a position of any importance. They are not only a physical threat but also less intelligent and not equal in any way. Yet millions of Americans do so every day.
From doctors to lawyers to the people flying your planes… People hold these positions of importance and power and nothing seems to go wrong.
Politics aside, this is a issue of common sense and dignity. One that a certain doctor is trying to strip away from Governor Christie for her own publicity.
Heavy people for years have been looked at with false stigmas. They are never been held in the same regards as their counter parts.
There are very few state laws that protect the obese from being discriminated against or even terminated in the work place.
In Texas, one hospital will not hire people they consider to be overweight. According to their rules, if a five foot ten inch man who weighs 245 pounds wants employment, no job is offered. That is not that big for a man that tall. If a five foot two inch woman weighs over 195 pounds, she is history as well.
Only one state and six cities will protect the obese from discrimination in the work place.
Ironically, New Jersey is not one of them.
Yet this Governor is beloved by not only most of his state but much of this country. So much so that he is now considered a very big 2016 contender for the White House.
So Chris Christie goes to show that the protections are needed for the obese.
Especially if he is to be rewarded the same protections he well deserves.
If there was anyone that I would want to represent the overweight population of this great country, it is Governor Christie. A family man who tries his best and has just as much intelligence as anyone else. This man is just part of a group of overweight Americans who now make up the majority.
I know plenty of thin people who suffer from illnesses every day and may be in the same risk group in similar ways.
Is Governor Christie in need of losing weight? Certainly… Just as the majority of Americans need to do so. Though this has to be his decision and in no way impacts his job performance in New Jersey or the White House. Take a look at former Governor and one time presidential presidential candidate Mike Huckabee.
He took off a great amount of weight and helped lead his state on to the road to battling obesity with several new initiatives. Years later he put back on some of the weight but it made him no less healthy or fit to run a state or even the country.
So the next time a doctor or someone of importance tries to make you feel inferior or at risk, ask them to take a physical themselves.
After all, these people may be in a position of great importance in you life and should show you the same respect.
