On Fox News’
sad and pathetic attempt to pander to women show Outnumbered, the topic of healthier school lunches was being discussed when their “expert doctor” Keith Ablow implied that Michelle Obama shouldn’t be telling anyone else about eating healthy – because she “needs to drop a few.”
Between the back and forth of the female co-hosts of the show more or less mocking the First Lady, Ablow commented, “What is she eating? She needs to drop a few.”
A comment so outrageous even the other four female co-hosts were taken aback by it.
“You did not just say that!” co-host Harris Faulkner said in disbelief.
Did Ablow correct himself, realizing that he might have said something really ignorant? Nope.
“We’re taking nutritional advice from who?” Ablow continued. “Let’s be honest. There’s not French fries? That’s all kale and carrots? I don’t buy it.”
One of the co-hosts seemed obviously speechless, the others tried to spin it off into a joke, but it was clear even they knew these comments were utterly ridiculous.
Besides, who the hell is Ablow to tell Michelle Obama that she needs to drop a few pounds? Has he looked at himself in the mirror? She’s given birth to two children, which most women have informed me definitely takes its toll on the female body, and is in much better shape than he is.
His comments were just absolutely absurd.
But this is just more of the same slander the right has been lobbing toward this family since Barack Obama won the Democratic nomination for president in 2008.
Because while the four female co-hosts didn’t go along with Ablow’s disgusting comments, at the start of the segment they were clearly mocking the First Lady’s efforts to fight childhood obesity by encouraging healthier meals in our public schools.
It’s just more of what we’ve all come to expect from Fox News and the right-wing media.
Childish, immature, juvenile level insults meant to pander to the most ignorant among us. And this segment was a prime example of all of that.
