Fox News psychiatrist: Obama backs food stamps because grandmother ‘didn’t trust men of color’
Fox & Friends brought on resident psychiatrist Dr. Keith Ablow on Tuesday to explain that President Barack Obama supported food stamps and was accusing the Republican Party of hostage taking in the government shutdown fight because his father “abandoned” him as a child and his grandmother “didn’t trust men of color.”
The Republican Party may have forced the government shutdown and pushed the nation to the brink of defaulting on its debts, but Fox News host Steve Doocy concluded Ablow needed to be called in to analyze why the president’s rhetoric had recently been so harsh.
“So, the average person might hear partisan rhetoric, but what do you hear?” Doocy wondered.
“Well, in the words ‘hostage taking… being held for ransom,’ he said that the Republicans are threatening to blow the whole thing up, there’s a real victim mentality here,” Ablow explained. “And it really explains the president’s whole mentality and many of his policies, that if he feels victimized and believes millions and millions of us have been victimized by America, well then that explains why he wouldn’t negotiate with hostage takers and victimizers who have kidnapped him and threatened to destroy him.”
“So, are you suggesting that the president feels that he has been victimized by the tea party?” Doocy asked.
“I think the president, going back to when his dad abandoned him, when his mother left him with his grandparents, when he describes his grandmother and intimating, that she didn’t trust men of color, that all of those things led him to feel victimized, hurt and injured,” Ablow remarked. “And he has extended it to this country. So, he comes to the corner office to right wrongs and to offer the mantle of victimization to as many people who will share it with him as possible.”
“More food stamps, don’t learn to feed yourself, don’t find it within yourself to pull yourself up. Simply say, I’ve been victimized,” the Fox News Medical A-Team member continued. “Hence, I need more unemployment, more food stamps, more free health care. And you know why? Because those other people are bad. And that’s what we’ve been hearing from him.”
In conclusion, Ablow opined that Obama had run for the White House to be the “victim-in-chief, the dis-empowerment president.”
