Fox News Analyst: World Cup Just There to ‘Distract People’ From Obama’s Problems

We’ve already seen the likes of Ann Coulter and WorldNetDaily columnist Carl Jackson slam the World Cup as a liberal conspiracy to hurt America, naturally it would only make sense that Fox News would bring in its own “expert” to explain why the World Cup, which has occurred every four years since 1930, actually has nothing to do with soccer and everything to do with Obama.

On Thursday, Fox News analyst Keith Ablow stunned even the Fox panel with his assertion that the World Cup is just there to distract people from Obama’s problems.

“I am suspect because, here’s the thing. Why, at a time when there are so many national and international issues of such prominence, I’m a little suspicious of yet another bread and circus routine,” Ablow said. “Let’s roll out the marijuana, pull back the laws, and get people even more crazy about yet another entertainment event.”

That drew a few groans and one of the panelists asked, “What’s wrong with you?”

“This is a way to distract people,” Ablow replied.

Fox’s Kristen Powers noted, “You have a very dark world view.”

“This is like Rome. I can see why Obama would love the World Cup,” Ablow stated.

Fellow Fox News contributor Kimberly Guilfoyle chimed in, saying, “What are you talking about? This is encouraging for kids to get out and play sports and you can play soccer from a young age.”

“It’s overblown,” Ablow dismissed.

    What a colossal A-Hole ! Yet another Pschyopathetic Media doctor more famous for his stupidity than his medical rigor. The fact that he co-wrote a book with Glenn Beck says a lot about him. Not to mention the “from a distance” unethical diagnosis he made about Joe Biden after watching him on TV for the debate with Ryan. Ha said that the VP “may have dementia” or maybe he was an alcoholic. The comparison with Ann Coulter sounds just about right… Two functional sociopaths…

    When you can stun even a panel of FOX News people with the depths of your psychotic paranoia, it’s time to call the padded trucks and the men with butterfly nets.
