Shock jock, radio personality Rush Limbaugh said first lady Michelle Obama is not practicing what she preaches. Limbaugh criticized Lady O for induldging in short ribs while on vacation in Colorado. He said, ” The problem is—and dare I say this—it doesn’t look like Michelle Obama follows her own nutritionary, dietary advice. I’m trying to say that our first lady does not project the image of women that you might see on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.”
The first lady’s detractors brushed off the comment telling the Washington Post “She’s never told people to cut out junk food; she’s suggested they eat junk less and exercise more.” They were a little bit nicer than they should have been. But I guess they wanted to take the classy route. Fortunately I don’t have to.
I would have responded with a question, something like, “Rush don’t you think you should be less focused on Michelle and what she’s eating and more focused on how you’re going to maintain that Adonis-like physique of yours while sitting behind a desk, spewing ignorant filth all day?” And another thing. Even the women on the covers of Sports Illustrated don’t have those bodies. It’s called airbrushing, not like every woman aspires to be on that cover anyway. No, the first lady opted for a more sophisticated approach, when she graced the cover of Vogue.
Limbaugh has since said he’s surprised at the backlash he’s received for his comments, saying he was engaging in very “civil discourse.”
Please, enough with the foolishness.
