Fox News Pundit Says Michelle Obama Needs to ‘Drop a Few’

On Tuesday’s edition of Outnumbered, Fox News’s lady-centric talk show, the co-hosts were having some trouble articulating why they oppose new federal nutrition standards for school lunches, aside from their sense that “Michelle Obama is so, like, the duchess when she speaks,” as Kennedy Montgomery put it. Ironically, Fox News contributor Dr. Keith Ablow, the male host du jour, was the most well-versed in the rules of middle-school-girl fights: When all else fails, call your opponent fat. “How well can she be eating? She needs to drop a few,” Ablow said. 

He continued: “No, let’s be honest. No, listen — we’re taking nutritional advice from who? … Let’s be honest, there’s no french fries ever? That’s all kale and carrots? I don’t buy it.”

The ladies feigned shock, and Kennedy added her own trenchant analysis, saying, “I like her booty.” Since Dr. Ablow was once able to identify the link between homosexuality and painting your son’s toes pink, we’re not surprised that he’s an expert on the health of a famously fitness-obsessed First Lady he’s never met.
