Appearing on The Kelly File this Friday, psychiatrist Dr. Keith Ablow made an interesting if puzzling assertion.
He said that when President Obama was elected it was because people chose to elect someone who was not “utterly American” and who wasn’t “on our side.” This is a remark that is strange to say the least.
In response to a question by host Megyn Kelly about the “malaise that’s coming over the country right now,” Ablow said, “Here’s the translation psychologically of this malaise. When we elected someone out of fear after 9/11, I think we elected a president, who we acknowledged the world would consider, well, not so bad, not so utterly American, not so on our side in a certain way. And I think what’s happening now is that people are starting to wake up a little bit and say, ‘now, wait a second.’ That’s a crisis when you have somebody in the Oval Office who doesn’t really embrace free enterprise and the things that made the country great. We have to shift course again.”
Hopefully Dr. Ablow confines himself to propping up the delusions of the far right and those at Faux News and not actually practicing psychiatry. His patients would be a clear danger to the general public.
