Shut Up Rush Limbaugh! Stop Implying Michelle Obama Is Fat!

Rush, you had the gall to say Michelle Obama doesn’t look like she could appear in a Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue and you attacked her for eating ribs. Even for an ultra- conservative radio talk show host, isn’t that a low blow.

Honestly Rush, I’ve seen your Jabba-The-Hut like photos and you would benefit big time from taking up Michelle’s “Let’s Move” campaign. Here’s what you said when you lashed out at the First Lady on your syndicated radio show on Mon, Feb 21st.

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

In other words Rush, you’re saying our pear-shaped First Lady is fat?? If so, you’re saying a huge number of America’s female population – also pear-shaped – are fat because they have curvaceous hips.

Michelle’s well toned arms have clearly not impressed you, but you probably wouldn’t recognize a muscle unless it was right up in your face.

You’re also saying that if Michelle eats a short rib – which apparently she did, during a ski trip to Vail (which is why you’re attacking her), that we should stop encouraging children to eat well and exercise, in an effort to fight childhood obesity.

Gee Rush, are you ok with 20% of America’s kids being obese? Or does that not bother you because being fit and healthy clearly isn’t a priority for you!

You called Michelle Obama “a hypocrite” for having a short rib. “Leaders are supposed to be leaders. If we’re supposed to go out and eat nothing. If we’re supposed to eat roots and berries and tree bark, show us how,” you ranted.

Honestly Rush, the toned-to-the-max Michelle is no hypocrite, but you’re a female- insulting numbskull, who shouldn’t be pointing your fat finger at the fit First Lady!

Michelle My Belle’s a hypocrite. She needs to stop telling Americans how to eat. And put down those fattening ribs!

I once lost 95 pounds and I was successful because I didn’t deprive myself completely. If I felt a desire for ribs occasionally, I ate them. Being healthy does not mean being model skinny and the First Lady is healthy.

Besides, she isn’t telling people how to eat, she is trying to educate them on what to eat. As you well know, or at least should know, that doesn’t exactly mean people will listen. She is providing the education whether or not anyone listens is up to them.

Michelle Obama is NOT fat! I honestly don’t understand how someone can look at the picture above and think “Wow, she’s HUGE!” If anyone is fat, its Rush and I think its ironic that he’s criticizing her about what she eats when he’s not exactly swimsuit season thin himself. He needs to fall back and stop reaching for things to criticize the First Lady about.

Helloooo! these pics are DOCOTORED UP! I’m a graphic designer, I should know. Concentrate on her LIVE pics for the truth; reporters LOVE to expose the real ‘Chelle: phony and FAT. Test it yourself by replaying her on the last State of the Union address and what she looked like: embarrassingly HUGE and wearing the worst thing possible. Only Paris Hilton could get away with that because she weighs 110lbs – by CHOICE.

Rush isn’t telling us all how to eat…that’s the difference here…we’ll say Michell is just Big Boned. But in all seriousness, I do listen to Rush from time to time and the First Lady, as far as I’m concerned, should be off limits. She’s a nice lady and she has good intentions.

This isn’t about her size, it’s about her dictating what we eat, when she’s travelling the world feasting on our dime. Did you see the White hOuse menu for the super bowl? And they’re always photographed eating ice cream on their many vacations. If she thinks the government can dictate what we eat, she has to take the heat. Good for Rush Limbaugh for saying what a lot of people are thinking!

Oh, stop being so petty. She’s on vacation. She ate a 600 calorie meal(rush was off by 800 calories like an idiot), she ate kale with her ribs, and some vegetables. Please tell me how she’s splurging. Please tell me how she’s dictating what you can eat either. Americans are a bunch of fatsos, of course we need to stop eating like cows. Obviously she’s doing something right cause she’s not a fatso like Rush, he shouldn’t be so defensive. Maybe he should take some cues to look that huge gut of his, and lay off all those pills he pops too.

omg, all you can do is laugh. Michelle is a good looking, fit woman who obviously works out and stays fit. And Rush is just this big chunky nerd who has a FUPA. I’m sorry, but anyone with a FUPA can’t be talking about anyone else’s weight.

Thank you for saying exactly what I was thinking. Have to admit I don’t know the acronym FUPA. But my you hit the nail on the head. I really disliked her during the election but she won me over with her positive attitudes & sensible thinking & programs.

I’m a woman. I think he’s right. He never once said she’s fat, just that she shouldn’t appear in public in a bikini. You all are taking things out of context appearing really defensive. He’s not lookin’ to good either but at least he’s not trying to teach others how to eat.

I always laugh when fat men call women who are either of average weight or healthy, unfit. Or in his case “not a swimsuit model”. Do men like that think that only women have to be “perfect” and men dont? I see a whole lot of fat or unattractive men harping on women like this. So women have to bust our a** and men dont? Hell no! She’s in great shape and could run laps around his fat a**. He’s not only fat but highly unattractive and rude. I never liked this man but this is just a low blow. Shut the hell up, old man and try getting on a treat mill every now and then. Maybe HE should stay away from the ribs!

no kidding… but actually, this is not just a rush thing. women are judged on their appearance more than men are. i’d chalk it all up to the “men are visually driven” fact (and they are judging women by those standards), except for the fact that women do it to other women, too. sigh… but, one thing is for sure- rush is an ugly rude fat azz!

He’s lame and irrelevant really. Only a sexist pig like himself would think women are trying to aspire to swimsuit illustrated status. If that’s what Michelle wanted, she’s have to pump about 600 ccs of silicone into her chichis and throw up more.

It is very hilarious when you can predict what some polls are going to imply. It is a sad reality that the poll was not taken in a “real” logical context and asked instead: Do you think any grown — man should be implying anything about a womans weight. He is two short Ribs behind a…I’m not even going to go there, but I will say this, I love Rush Limbaugh, something about that name gives me a ~rush~~~.Now go to the gym and work it out R.L. for all the women in the world.

The headline says it all. Shut Up Rush Limbaugh! You’re fat and even all the “illegal drugs you consumed” didn’t thin you out. The nerve of former pill popping drug addict complaining about someone consuming ribs. Eating ribs are legal. She is not fat! Its OK to eat different foods at certain times! It is not OK to consume illegal drugs at anytime. Big deal they say you are clean now and I say you haven’t been caught with them again. When she starts eating unhealthy foods all the time let us me and then I will agree.

I assume nellie is joking?

Political views aside, the first lady is beautiful and considering the uhmmm ‘beauty challenged’ first ladies of the last decades its a welcomed relief.

Rush and all radicals, left & right need to constantly find some new way to criticize and belittle the opposition, its part of their long con. Every republican president in the last two decades has had national fitness awareness programs, its how the governator came to the political spotlight. But of course this administration’s program has to be part of the supposed marxist take over of America.

As long as both sides continue to divert attention from the real problems: poverty, the slaughter of the middle class, joblessness , the housing crisis and the economy; it remains very easy for both sides to maintain the status quo, they become richer and more powerful and everybody else looses everything.

Political radicalism is the new opiate and both conservatives and liberals are using that tool of oppression to its fullest potential.

Rush is right. Michelle is a hypocrite, while she tells us the people we are fat and out of shape thus we should be mandated to eat healthier….MEANWHILE she eats icecream, short ribs, hamburgers, fries and all the things the we the people are not good enough to eat. MICHELLE OBAMA is a fascist pig just like in the novel animal farm. OINK OINK! “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others”

Nellie, sure you’re not looking in the mirror while making that comment? Maybe you’re having flashback of past experiences with regards to your looks.

There is nothing unattractive about the First Lady. Obviously, the most powerful man in America thinks she’s beautiful. Wonder if he’d say the same thing about you or if anyone would.

You guys are missing the point all together. If you ever listened to Rush and understood his humor and reasoning, you might be a little enlightened. Rush is not suggesting that people can’t eat what they want. He also didn’t say she was fat. The first lady has done nothing but tell us how fat we are and how unhealthy we are. She thinks it is up to her and the government to tell all us “lesser” people how we should be living and eating. Rush is pointing out that the first lady is a hypocrite. No different than Mr. Gore preaching at us about our carbon usage but none of that applies to him. Typical lefties. They know whats better for everyone else.

I personally don’t care what goes on in anyones bedroom or who marries who, but I am sick of the government wasting our money and then telling us what to do. It used to be the liberals that were all about live and let live but lately they want the government to do everything for us. And are intolerant of anything that doesn’t line up with their agenda. I don’t understand when that shift happened.
