Moment of Zen - Michelle Obama Has a Cheeseburger

(EDITORIAL NOTE) Michelle Obama orders a cheeseburger meal that's the caloric equivalent of eating a live raccoon. Greg Gutfeld reports from Fox News

Editorial Note: I can't tell what is more absurd, the fact that a Fox News reporter felt it newsworthy that the Presidents wife actually likes food, just like everyone else in America, and generally around the world, or the fact that he compared the calorie count to eating a live raccoon?

This of course begs the question(s)... Does he think that dead raccoons have have more, or fewer calories? Has Greg Gutfeld eaten a live raccoon?  Aren't there more sane things to compare a cheeseburger and fries to in calorie count... Are inane comparisons and obtuse reasoning pro forma for Greg Gutfeld's reporting... Well, if the rest of his reporting is as absurd as this, then the answer would be 'yes'.

Oh, and we can't let this slip... of all the possible foods, or animals that he could have compared her meal to, he chose a raccoon, also referred to as a coon in slang, which just so happens to be a racial slur against black people.

Let's not beat around the bush on this one: Greg Gutfeld just used a racial slur while referring to First Lady of the President of the United States of America. Who wants to bet that, if challenged about whether or not it was a 'racial slur', Gutfeld would deny it completely... with, I don't know, some more obtuse reasoning...

I think we can safely say that scruples are in no way an issue at Fox News, or if they are, some folks didn't get the memo.
