Montel Williams Needs To Practice What He Preaches

On May 31, longtime TV talk show host Montel Williams, who has been tweeting up a storm and making quite the press circuit concerning our nation’s atrocious healthcare policies toward military vets like himself, sent out a message of sugar and spice and everything nice. It’s always wonderful when someone can use their perch to push for warm and fuzzy acts toward others.


So imagine my utter surprise to see that just one day before his flowery advice, Williams told me how I don’t “get it,” how much he knows about the media and how I was still “a kid” when he was acquiring his vast knowledge. This was followed up with the accusation that somehow by writing about his absurd complaints against the media that I was seeking my 15 minutes of fame. How “high road” of him to assume that if I even wanted my so-called 15 minutes that I’d choose him as a vehicle. Truthfully, I think I’d set my sights a little higher.



And imagine my further surprise to see Williams’ flack Jonathan Franks retweeting and favoriting a woman who clearly has a screw loose. Is calling me a “retarded liberal,” a “bitch” and a “whore” really “coming together” and “taking the high road”?


Williams and his flack got their panties in a collective twist last week when The Daily Caller ran a headline saying that Williams had “unloaded” on President Obama in an appearance on Fox News. Other publications and organizations such as TheBlaze and The Heritage Foundation wrote headlines that were just as blistering, but somehow Williams went batty over The Daily Caller‘s headline, which he insisted politicized the issue of vets getting proper healthcare. Williams attacked Obama in his TV appearances. Hence the headline.

Yeah, taking the high road. It can be a real slog. The only high road here may be all that medicinal marijuana Montel consumes on a regular basis (no offense to the marijuana).

Moral of the story: If you can’t practice what you preach, then stop preaching.
