Not Even Michelle Obama is Safe From the Fox News Foulness

Well, the good news is that you can take a break from feeling angry about the way some people are discussing Robin Williams' death. But the bad news is that you can't take a break from feeling angry about other things. "But why?" you might be thinking. "I don't want to feel angry over stupid comments from thoughtless people anymore!" And that's totally fair. And also totally unlikely.
Here we have, in this little video, Fox News contributor Keith Ablow saying that our First Lady, the majestic Michelle Obama, "needs to drop a few." As in, she needs to drop a few pounds. And because of that, she is not fit to give advice on nutrition. This is a serious comment that was made by a person who is allowed to speak on national television. How intensely pathetic is that?
Michelle Obama is perfect. She doesn't need to drop a few pounds, and even if she did have a few pounds that were available for dropping, she would still be perfect. She's so graceful and smart and beautiful, and anyone who says any different is obviously incorrect. Just the fact that this guy feels like he can comment on her body like this is gross, you know? And we've had enough with gross lately.
