Limbaugh takes aim at Michelle Obama’s waistline

Washington (CNN) – Michelle Obama is taking heat from talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh after a report in the Vail Daily that she consumed a not-so-healthy-meal of ribs for dinner while on a recent visit to the Colorado resort, the latest example of conservative angst directed at the first lady’s healthy-eating initiative.

“The problem is, and dare I say this, it doesn’t look like Michelle Obama follows her own nutritionary, dietary advice,” Limbaugh said Monday on his radio program. “And then we hear that she’s out eating ribs at 1,500 calories a serving with 141 grams of fat per serving.”

“She is a hypocrite,” Limbaugh continued. “Leaders are supposed to be leaders. If we are supposed to go out and eat nothing, if we are supposed to eat roots, berries, and tree bark, show us how.”

    My 2 kids are great athletes. Track team, soccer, basketball. Not an ounce of fat. Don’t need no government dope telling them what to eat. If other people are too stupid to know basic health rules, too bad. That’s freedom. You have the right to be fat and stupid. Just don’t waste time on something that’s a non-issue. Nanny state scolding encourages helpless attitudes. Do you really need to be told what to eat?

    Funniest thing I’ve read in weeks. Fat, drug-addicted blowhard Limbaugh is criticizing Michelle Obama for eating ribs? What’s even more laughable is the “dittoheads” who support the bloviating moron, no matter what he says.

      Why do you hate America ?

      While I’m not a big Rush fan, the difference is that he’s not trying to convince everyone else to eat healthy foods. The point is that she should hold herself to the same standards. If she does not, that indicates that she believes that she is above the rules she’s trying so very hard to make. I don’t care if someone is fat. I don’t care if he/she chain smokes or does every drug imaginable…unless he/she tries to tell me how to live. At that point, we have a problem. I will keep my nose in my business as long as they keep their noses in their business, but control freaks like Michelle Obama just can’t seem to do that. She IS a hypocrite.

      JMK you are suffering from a sever case of cerebral rectal inversion. Polls show that people suffering from CRI need only to remove their heads from their asses to become well again.

      I heard he is going to make fun of Bill Daley for being bald and Donald Trump for multiple failed marriages next.

      Did you know that hearing loss is a common side effect of Oxycontin abuse? But being a fat hypocrite is actually a choice.

        “But being a fat hypocrite is actually a choice.”

        Please stop demeaning our First Lady. Are you a racist?

        • TommyV

          Des; you’re right….how about very fat hypocrite ;)!

        • talibangelical

          Des, that was awesome! I thought you were actually an intelligent person with a certain political view….but I was wrong! You just called the First Lady Fat!! Great job!

          And re being a hypocrite, let me beat you to the punch: I know you are but what am I??

          Hilarious stuff, Des. Not beneath you at all. Never figured you to be an apologist for the media, but here you are!

            The First Lady is fat. Take a look at those thighs and butt.

            Personally, I don’t care if she is fat. I don’t consider being fat a crime, like she does. I don’t consider being stupid and unable to comprehend a written comment a crime either, so I won’t be reporting you to the brain police for aggravated stupidity. What I really hate, as does Rush, is a self-righteous hypocrite telling people what they can and can’t eat while she’s hogging down short ribs and lard burgers.

            You missed Limbaugh’s point, and it was either intentional, which makes you premeditatedly dishonest, or you missed his point, which makes you quite stupid. Take your pick.

    I agree that it is a good thing that Michelle Obama is encouraging healthy eating habits; she is not requiring people to eat well, only encouraging. This issue is a loser for the right. Attacking the FLOTUS is a loser for Rush. And why does the article not mention other of Rush’s comments, namely, “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 or of a woman Alex Rodriguez might date every six months or what have you.” What?

    • ladylove

      I don’t really care much for Limbaugh, being I am a democrat.

      but he is right on, on this subject.

      Mrs. Obama is constantly telling all of us what we should be eating, and what we should be feeding our children.

      and all the while she is eating as she likes, with no regard to how this makes her look like a hypocrite.

      the last state dinner, the calorie count was double what a normal days intake should be, for one meal.

      this meal came close to a whole days intake.

      the woman should either practice what she preaches, or shut the hell up. preferably the later.

      I don’t give a damn what title she holds, a hypocrite is a hypocrite, and this woman is a hypocrite.

    Talibangelical :

    “That’s okay, I heard that Michelle is going to make fun of fat, bald drug addicts who smuggle Viagra on all-male trips to Costa Rica between their multiple marriages.”


    Talibangelical I just thought that I would repost what you typed so that you could re-read it and please explain what the heck was the point you were trying to make. Your entire post makes not on ounce of sense. If you were trying to say that Rush Limbaugh was making fun of Michelle Obama, well you need to read the article again because it makes fun of no one for being over weight, but I for one will have to say like it or not Michelle Obama is absolutely over weight and should not be pushing a Nutrition Program when she herself can’t seem to stay away from the burger and fries or in this case the RIBS.

  • Mr.ManZ

    Way To Rush, Once again speaking for the people. If we are to follow O-dumbo’s “GRAND NUTRITIONAL PLAN” then so the hell should they.

    Jmet……..Dude/dudette whichever you are do us all a favor and try reading the article before you comment on it the next time, because if you would have did it this time you would have understood that Rush was not attacking Mrs O-dumbo’s weight, he was attacking her nutritional reasoning slowing sinking deep into a bucket of Ribs.

      I would love to see the average weight and cavity count of the DC poster.

      Me first: 127 and 3

      Anyone else??

    Hey Rush Go look in a Mirror lately? Limbaugh you can take hit at peoples weight when you loose that fat ass of yours. Sincerely – Gravitational Concerned Folk

    • Buckeye Tom

      Jmet…Rush doesn’t go around telling people what they should or shouldn’t eat. If you do tell others what they should do, you had better be doing it yourself, otherwises be prepared to be called out. By your logic, when you have 20 million people listening to your opinion daily like Rush does, then you can expect to have your opinions taken seriously.

    • kookie

      Michelle Obama is the one who tells everybody what to eat, then has the nerve to dine on a plate of ribs. She and her hypocritical husband, laugh behind our backs everyday, and by the way, it’s lose not loose.

  • ladylove

    the Queen of do as I say, and not as I do, once again doing what she tells us we cannot do.

    typical, just typical.

  • talibangelical

    That’s okay, I heard that Michelle is going to make fun of fat, bald drug addicts who smuggle Viagra on all-male trips to Costa Rica between their multiple marriages.
