Fox pundit's disgusting Michelle Obama remarks: First lady "needs to drop a few"

Keith Ablow, Fox News’ psychiatry contributor and adult baby, was on Outnumbered today to talk about first lady Michelle Obama’s various health campaigns and to spew general hate.

“I can’t pack things [my kids are] not going to eat, so we have to find a happy medium,” said Kennedy. “We don’t need the federal government applying, projecting these standards on us. Michelle Obama is like the duchess when she speaks about this.”

At that point, Keith Ablow thought he could win some ratings with the absurd notion that Michelle is not a good role model when it comes to health: “And how well could she be eating?” he asked. “She needs to drop a few. I mean I’m telling you, let’s be honest. Who are we taking nutrition advice from? Let’s be honest, there are no french fries happening? That’s all kale and carrots? I don’t buy it. I’m just saying, her husband, I’d like some nutrition information from Barack.”

His co-hosts audibly gasped and attempted to interrupt his verbal excreting, except for ole reliable Kennedy who chimed in with a poorly thought out Queens tough guy accent, “Yeah, Michelle Obama, she needs to lose some junk in the trunk,” and, “I like her booty.”

Could they be serious? Do they not understand how grotesque those statements are for so many reasons? Or are they intentionally trying to appeal to the lowest common denominator audience?

The show cut to host Sandra Smith who was visibly appalled. “Hold on. The fitness of the first lady aside and her presentation aside, I have no comments on that.”

Ablow managed to sneak in a final, “Join me in my criticism.” Watch the segment below (the interaction begins at 1:25).
