Neil Cavuto Can't Get Sportsball Man To Agree That Michelle Obama's A Big Failure

News

It was a classic Battle of the Agendas on Fox News Monday, as Seattle Seahawks star Russell Wilson, promoting a United Way summer program tofeed poor kids while school is out, went up against anchormuppet Neil Cavuto, who tried, unsuccessfully, to get the sportsball man to slag on Michelle Obama and her communist socialist Muslim Nazi efforts to encourage healthy eating. And just like the skilled quarter-of-the-back that he is, Wilson adroitly avoided the sack.


Cavuto set up the interview by reminding viewers that nobody anywhere likes the terrible nutritious meals that Michelle Obama is personally cooking for schoolchildren, noting that a Kentucky school district has opted out of new federal guidelines since "kids just wouldn't eat the healthy meals no matter what Michelle Obama said." Over video of Wilson, Cavuto mused, "Maybe they need this guy to beat a little bit of eating sense into them, because Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson doesn't seem to have any trouble getting kids to eat right." We suppose the United Way program that Wilson was there to talk about has an advantage, in that it's aimed specifically at kids who don't have food.

Wilson launched into his talking points about food insecurity, pointing out that "One out of five kids is looking for something to eat every day," and promoting the summer meals program, but Cavuto wasn't going to go with that "hunger" nonsense -- the real problem, he insisted, is that Michelle Obama must be Doing It Wrong:

Well, Russell, what are we doing wrong then as a nation though with this urging them to eat healthy or set up these school lunch programs where they're urged to eat healthy. I mean, Michelle Obama's trying. Many argue that she's getting to be too much of a food police mommy. Be that as it may, whatever she's doing isn't working and I'm wondering what you're doing that is working. What's the difference?

Wilson very rudely refused to play along, darn him, despite the Fox chyron clearly saying that the United Way/NFL program was aimed at fighting "childhood obesity." Instead, he smiled and said he thought Michelle was swell, and tried to turn the question back to hunger:

Well, the first lady, I have so much respect for her. I was able to meet her and the President, obviously, you know when we went to the Super Bowl, we won the Super Bowl and got to go to the White House. You know, I think at the end of the day, you know the kids, it's tough to eat healthy. You know, I remember when I was a little kid I was always struggling trying to eat healthy.

Cavuto, ever the comic master, figured that at least he could make a funny joke about how he never missed a meal as a child, so what's wrong with these skinny urbans, that won't eat their anusburgers, anyway? "Really? That was never my problem, Russell. I guess you have some issues." Nice save, Neil!

And now for some very serious TUT TUTTING! It's time again for Republicans to make sad words about President Treason McTraitorpants selling out the country. This time they are seriously concerned, nay even deeply troubled, that Donald Trump would stand next to Vladimir Putin and pretend the Russians didn't hack the 2016 election. These patriotic Republicans are shocked, SHOCKED! Well, not, like, upset enough to do anything about it -- not with a fascist carpooler to jam into the Supreme Court. But they've got tweets, so it's all good!

Republicans are in a pickle. Midterms are coming up and the party in the White House usually loses seats in those elections. It doesn't help their chances that their guy Donald Trump frolics through fields holding hands with self-made Russian dictator and coincidental poisoner Vladimir Putin, who our own justice department believes attacked our mostly free elections and our true national monument, the Internet.

If you're as old as I am, you'll recall that back in the 1980s, the whole Republican brand involved not trusting the Ruskies, and they were especially disappointed when Kevin Costner turned out to be one in No Way Out. Now, the current Republican president is talking like some kind of crazy commie lib, bashing the FBI and giving the benefit of the doubt to a former KGB agent. During an interview Sunday where he wore a hat with "USA" in big letters on it, presumably so someone could easily return him if he got lost on the field trip, Trump went so far as to call the European Union a "foe" of his country, which if you believe his hat is supposedly the United States not Russia.
