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!
