Keith Ablow is to medicine what Fox is to journalism. The two are a match made in heaven, which is why he so often appears on Fox — no other network is stupid enough to give him an extended platform. As a case in point, on Tuesday, Ablow mocked the First Lady’s weight, and on Wednesday, Ablow went even further.
While speaking to Politico, Ablow questioned the first lady’s patriotism and then suggested that it somehow undermines her credibility to promote nutrition and exercise.
The good news is this: if Ablow is speaking exclusively about the clown show he routinely panders to, First Lady Obama doesn’t have too much to worry about. She never had any credibility with them to begin with, which, no matter how you look at it, is a good thing.
However, if Ablow is talking about the general United States population, I’ll thank the good doctor who snipped his psychiatry degree from the back of a General Mills cereal box to go look up the word “projection.” I’ll wait.
Ablow told Politico:
“I’m not taking food advice from an American who dislikes America, who in many photographs during her tenure as first lady is obviously not fit, and who has a record of saying things that show that she’s two-faced. This should be obvious; I don’t know why it isn’t.”
Ablow also added that people “should be less sensitive about” discussing weight, a comment likely aimed at his female colleagues on Fox, some of whom were less than pleased by his comments on-air Tuesday.
He must be an effective psychiatrist. That’s why he spends most of his time on Fox.
