FOX News is notorious for its conservative, right wing point of view, but we were shocked to learn that one of its presenters had the nerve to comment on Michelle Obama's weight.

The US based channel was discussing a group known as Mission: Readiness, which is pushing for new school nutrition standards, and is backed by Obama, when Dr. Keith Ablow butted in with the unnecessary comment.

"How well could she be eating?" he asked when Obama's name came up. "She needs to drop a few. Let's be honest. We're taking nutrition advice from who? Well, no let's be honest, like there's no french fries happening. Like that's all kale and carrots. I don't buy it," he said.

To their credit, the other panelists seemed shocked. "Oh no, you didn't not say that," one said, though o-host Lisa Kennedy Montgomery declared, "I like her booty," while Sandra Smith said, "Fitness of the first lady aside, her presentation aside, I have no comments on that."

"Well, I'm just saying. I want some nutritional advice from Barack," Ablow continued.

Not only are the comments hideously untrue, they also demean Michelle's position as the First Lady of America. We'd like to know, too, what exactly a person's weight has to do with their ability to do their job.

The sexist, unwarranted comments have since gone viral - watch the video below.
