Keith Ablow Really Needs to STFU

Keith Ablow Really Needs to STFU August 25, 2014

Keith Ablow, the weapons grade asshole that Fox News turns to for fake psychological analysis, just can’t stop digging his own hole. He went on a Fox show with four female anchors and doubled down on his claim that Michelle Obama has to lose weight. They didn’t respond well.

Host Harris Faulkner interrupted to ask how the doctor knew that Michelle Obama had “struggled with her weight.”

Ablow replied that he had seen “images online” that proved “she has struggled with her weight or chosen to be much heavier than at other points in the administration. Maybe she’s chosen it.”

“Maybe she didn’t struggle, maybe she chose to be a larger woman.”

Ablow then turned to the women hosting the show, and said that each of them “should lose five pounds,” including himself.

“I’ll tell you what the bottom line is,” co-host Sandra Smith quipped. “In future appearances, maybe think about what you’re going to say before you say it.”

“It thought about it this time!” Ablow insisted. “Listen if I came here on the couch and had a drink and you smelled it on my breath, wouldn’t you say, ‘Hey, Keith, what’s going on?’”

“I wish you were drinking now because that would explain this crazy behavior,” co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle lamented. “Hell, no, you didn’t just tell a Puerto Rican woman she needs to lose five pounds.”
