Former Obama campaign adviser David Axelrod on Friday came to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's defense after a former White House doctor expressed concern over the governor's weight.
"It's almost like a time bomb waiting to happen, unless he addresses those issues before he runs for office," former White House physician Connie Mariano told CNN earlier this week.
Axelrod took to Twitter Friday morning:
When I weigh all the facts, I have to side with Christie over the former WH doctor.Leave the poor guy alone!
