Does this mean that fat-shaming is ok and the “body positivity” movement is dead?
On Monday night, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi(D-CA) appeared on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360.
At one point, Cooper asked Pelosi what she thought about the President taking hydroxychloroquine as a preventative measure against contracting COVID-19. Pelosi, who is not a doctor, weighed in on, well… the President’s weight and called him “morbidly obese.”
Anderson Cooper lets the comment pass and doesn’t question her on it.
Speaker Pelosi just called President Trump “morbidly obese” on CNN.

First, since Nancy wants to talk about how irresponsible it is for the President to take hydroxychloroquine as a prophylactic measure, why not look “at the science.”
In April, the prominent medical journal, The Lancet discussed the use of chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine as a prophylactic measure against COVID-19 and discussed possible dosages. Both medications have been used to prevent malaria for decades and have been shown to have some efficacy against other respiratory illnesses such as SARS.
In addition, there have been studies conducted on the use of hydroxychloroquine as a preventative measure against COVID-19. A Canadian pharmaceutical company, Apotex, donated 2 million doses of their version of the medication to first responders and medical personnel for a clinical trial.
President Trump said that he’s been taking the medication for “about a week and a half” which is, coincidentally, when Vice President Pence’s press secretary, Katie Miller, tested positive for the coronavirus.
While clinical studies have not been conclusive, it’s no surprise that President Trump, who is in the high-risk category because of his age, would take a preventative. This is the same man who signed the Right To Try Act into law, after all.
And since when did leftists get all concerned about what other people do with their bodies? Is the “My Body, My Choice” thing exclusive to abortion? Pelosi’s district includes San Francisco where drug users are handed out needles so that they can inject illegal drugs into their bodies, but she doesn’t have a problem with that, right? Isn’t it in her district that’s COVID-positive homeless people are being put in hotels and given free alcohol, weed, and methadone? She’s suddenly concerned about the ill-effects of drugs? No one believes that!
Finally, President Trump might have a couple of extra pounds, but he is not morbidly obese. But I’m sure that “Dr. Pelosi” knows that and is just being her natural, hateful self.
Someone should tell Nancy that it isn’t a great idea for a woman who is more plastic than Barbie to be making snide comments about someone else’s appearance. Not everyone wants to subject themselves to lipo, Nancy. As I said on Twitter last week when someone asked why her skin was so shiny, it’s because she’s had so much work done that at this point, she’s blinking her knees.
It's the plastic surgery.
At this point, Nancy is blinking her knees.

Botox Betty might want to sit this one out.
Look, I’m fine with Nancy taking a cheap shot at the President if she wants to. I’m not fine with Anderson Cooper sitting there stone-faced as she says it and letting it slide without any push-back.
Contrast now to how the leftist media speaks of the failed Democrat gubernatorial candidate from Georgia–she’s practically the Second Coming. (Or would that be third if you count Obama?)
In a 6,000 word puff-piece, the rather rotund Abrams is compared to a “runway supermodel.”
No, I’m not making that up. It turns out, you can no longer parody the Washington Post because it has become the Babylon Bee.
Pandemonium ensues as she walks to the far left of the stage, like a runway supermodel, stops on a dime, poses, tilts her head slightly and smiles. Camera flashes explode. She next pivots and walks slowly to the center of the stage, freezes there and repeats the pose. Again, the flashes explode. Abrams is summoning her inner actress, and she is both enjoying the moment and getting through it to get to the conversation. She then pivots and walks to the far right of the stage, same. You wonder whether she has done this before, because it is not necessarily what one would expect from a 46-year-old politician who was nearly elected the first black female governor in U.S. history. She lost by fewer than 2 percentage points in the 2018 Georgia race riddled with allegations of voter suppression. Before that, she was a state legislator who had served as a leader in the Georgia General Assembly for a decade. Now her name is on political pundits’ shortlists of potential running mates for Joe Biden. She also happens to have predicted that she’ll be elected president by 2040.

In case you missed it, the Washington Post, in an absolutely propaganda piece, described imaginary Governor of Georgia Stacey Abrams as a "supermodel."
I can't even…
