Dr. Keith Ablow, a member of the Fox News Medical A-Time, on Tuesday asserted that First Lady Michelle Obama was not qualified to fight for better child nutrition because she needed to “drop a few” pounds.
On Monday, nearly 500 retired generals and other military leaders in the group Mission: Readiness sided with Michelle Obama against House Republicans, who were pushing a measure to allow schools to opt out of nutritional standards.
On the Tuesday episode of Out Numbered, Fox Business host Kennedy Montgomery accused the federal government of “projecting these standards upon us.”
“And Michelle Obama is so… she’s the duchess when she speaks,” Kennedy quipped.
“She’s kind of annoying though,” co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle agreed.
But it wasn’t Ms. Obama’s tone that bothered Ablow.
“What is she eating?” he asked. “She needs to drop a few.”
That sentiment elicited a collective gasp from the four women on the panel.
“You did not just say that!” co-host Harris Faulkner exclaimed, wondering if the control room could use its seven-second delay to stop the comments from airing.
“We’re taking nutritional advice from who?” Ablow opined. “Let’s be honest. There’s not French fries? That’s all kale and carrots? I don’t buy it.”
After the panel moved off the topic of the first lady’s weight, Montgomery continued to criticize the military leaders.
“What’s the message?” she said. “If you don’t let us feed your kids gross, dried-up vegetables, we’re going to shoot you with our guns?”
Faulkner, however, explained that the generals were concerned about the military readiness of future recruits.
“Feed your own damn kids,” Montgomery grumbled.

Trump made an ‘implicit threat of violence’ when he refused to say he’d leave peacefully: CNN’s Berman
CNN's John Berman on Thursday accused President Donald Trump of implicitly threatening the use of violence if he loses the 2020 presidential election.
While discussing Trump's refusal to commit to a peaceful transition of power should he lose the 2020 election, Berman said that this was the kind of thing he'd expect to hear from leaders in foreign countries without long traditions of upholding democracy.
"To be clear, the refusal to commit to a peaceful transfer in and of itself is an implicit threat of violence," he said.
Here’s how Trump intends to create ‘chaos and deadlock’ to steal the election from voters
The author of a new piece outlining how President Donald Trump could steal the election from voters explained just how that might happen.
The Atlantic's Barton Gellman revealed the Trump campaign is exploring a strategy to pressure Republican-led state legislatures to appoint electors, instead of letting voters choose, and he told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" how that would work in practice.
"The only other time in history we had a debacle like this with possibility of the multiple competing slates of electors where two groups of people said, 'I'm the state elector for the state of Pennsylvania,' for example, it's supposed to go to Congress," Gellman said. "Congress is supposed to decide who are the legitimate electors, if any, from the state, and the problem is the electorate count act is one of the most garbled statutes ever passed by Congress, which is saying a lot."
Trump apologist thinks president made ‘huge mistake’ by admitting he won’t peacefully give up power
A conservative who usually defends President Donald Trump admitted to CNN on Thursday that the president made a "huge mistake" when he refused to commit to having a peaceful transfer of power should he lose the 2020 election.
During a panel discussion on the president's latest controversial remarks about the upcoming election, liberal guest Bakari Sellers argued that Americans should be "very terrified" about Trump implicitly encouraging violence in the event that he loses.
