Fox News host mocks food stamps: ‘Do you know how fabulous I’d look? I’d be so skinny’

Fox News host Andrea Tantaros on Wednesday seemed to be mocking the millions of hungry Americans who are forced to used food stamps when she suggested that the program would make for a great diet plan.

During a Thanksgiving-eve segment on Fox Business, host Stuart Varney noted that Newark Mayor Cory Booker had accepted a challenge to live on food stamps for a week.

“Could you like on 133 bucks a month for food?” Varney asked Tantaros, who co-hosts Fox News’ The Five.

I should try it because, do you know how fabulous I’d look?” she replied. “I mean, the camera adds ten pounds. It really does. I would be looking great.”

According to the USDA, 50.1 million Americans lived with food insecurity in 2011. Over 57 percent of those households participated in federal food assistance programs.

3. It may be more difficult to eat in a healthy manner with that budget. Junk food is less expensive

 

and more common than the healthy. Burgers are $1 and salads, $5. So this sort of poverty is also very bad for your health, not only your waistline.

(I've been on food stamps.)

10. Ya beat me to it!

The foods you can afford are not often healthy, almost always laden with carbs...

Faux news people are just sooooo stupid. Words fail me.

5. Not !

She'd blow through the FS card money in one trip. and then mooch off her friends/relatives for the rest of the month..

or

she would find that starchy pasta & cereal products are more filling, and she'd "plump-up"..

Spending less on food often means fattier cuts of meat (when you can buy meat) are the ones on the list..

Hunger is sated when the belly is full..

It's cheaper to fill a belly with bulky/starchy foods..

12. It'd take a lot more than losing 10 pounds...

...to make her "fabulous". She'd still have to do something about her Foxian "soul".
