Rush Limbaugh Spouts Fat Talk & Fashion Advice for Michelle Obama! Seriously?

Rush Limbaugh spouts off about Michelle Obama’s fashion faux pas and his opinion about her weight again. He entertained a caller that named Laura from Bremerton, Washington.

Laura told Rush Limbaugh, “Every time I see her and they start talking about how fashionable she is and the colors she wears, I think about that old story, ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes.’ Every time [Michelle] dresses in yellow, I keep expecting some little kid to pop up and say, ‘She looks like a bowl of mustard.'”

The caller from Washington continued after first being mocked by Limbaugh. Does he mock everyone even his supportive callers? She stated, “She never seems to look classy. She never seems to wear her clothes with any finesse or flair. She just seems to march around like a lumberjack.”

Is it appropriate to make fun of the First Lady of the United States? Even though politics may differ between people, it is never acceptable to toss crude comments and jokes toward the people who represent America. Yes, it is a constitutional right to have freedom of speech, but it is a matter of principle. Respect your leaders despite their political stance.

After all, the world is watching to see if there is unity in America’s ranks. Obviously, there is no unity between democrats and republicans. It is all out war! However, let a foreigner come against Americans and everyone pulls together with unity. Republicans and Democrats are like bickering siblings.

Then the controversial talk show host went on to speak about Michelle Obama’s lack of fashion sense. Limbaugh wanted to know why the media portrays the First Lady as a fashion guru. He is right about this. She is portrayed as a fashion trendsetter, yet you never see anyone wearing her specific outfits. She looks like a normal business woman and mother.

The caller sarcastically responded, “If they do it any other way, they’re going to be marked as racist.” Limbaugh touted that anyone who goes against Obama’s policies is immediately branded as a racist.

Then Rush Limbaugh just couldn’t resist chatting about his obsession with the First Lady’s body. Should Barack Obama be jealous?

He said, “I shouldn’t have to say it. Do you want me to talk about Michelle’s shape? I’m not going to say what I think about her shape. I’m not sure what it is. I can’t win this. There’s no purpose here into getting into such detailed discussion and analysis of the First Lady’s shape.”

Couldn’t Limbaugh wait more than a month before he called Michelle Obama fat again. He is still in hot water from last month about the same “fat” topic. Limbaugh mocked Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” weight loss and fitness program for children after he mocked her weight by saying she should lose a few pounds herself. She was the laughing stock of Republican debates after she was spotted chomping down on a plate of ribs at a restaurant.

How can Limbaugh really mock the First Lady when he certainly could use to lose a few 20 pounds himself?

Last month, he stated, “The problem is, and dare I say this, it doesn’t look like Michelle Obama follows her own nutritionary, dietary advice. 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 or of a woman Alex Rodriguez might date every six months or what have you.”

Well, Limbaugh you live in hot water. You might as well enjoy the stay.
