What the Fuck is Wrong with These People?: Fox Pundit Jokes Food Stamps Could Be A Diet Plan

........ it's Thanksgiving for Christs Sake!!

from Think Progress



Fox Business kicked off Thanksgiving eve with a joke about food stamps. Discussing Newark, New Jersey Mayor Cory Booker’s challenge to live on food stamps for one week, Fox pundit Andrea Tantaros said that living on a $133 monthly allowance for food would make her look “fabulous.” Meanwhile, a record number of Americans actually rely on this budget, for less than $1.50 per meal.

STUART VARNEY (HOST): Could you live on $133 per month for food?

TANTAROS: I should try it because do you know how fabulous I’d look? I’d be so skinny. I mean, the camera adds ten pounds, it really does. I’d be looking great.

Far from a diet, not having enough food to eat is a harsh reality for 50 million people. The average Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) household has a monthly income of $731, and 76 percent include a child, elderly or disabled person. Without SNAP, even more Americans would go hungry.

1. This seems like an extreme example of either a very low IQ or a personality disorder.

 

Maybe both.

3. I'd look so "fabulous"

Yeah, I'm sure if you were living like people who have to take food stamps you'd look ab fab in your thrift store clothes and your 5 year old shoes coming to work on the bus or the subway in the rain.

Fuck her.

5. They lack compassion, and the ability to empathize...

or self-reflect. That's what's wrong with them.

7. She's the type of woman who makes me glad I'm gay.

And normally I'd say she's probably a nice person, but I just can't see it, on the basis of her comments.

13. They assume recipients have other money that they're blowing

They don't believe that recipients have actual needs, and if they do, it's strictly as a result of bad decisions. It is true that a lot of people are struggling, elderly, disabled or some combination thereof.

One of the things that piss me off to NO END, is a woman I know that is posting on facebook every day that people on welfare should be drug tested. The supreme irony is that her daughter is on welfare by choice: earning a low income, and postponing marriage to her child's father so that she can complete her education with the state's assistance. That assistance would be gone once both their incomes are considered, so they will live for the status quo for the present.

The system isn't great, for sure. But the fact that a social net exists in this country is why we don't have widespread destitution in this country.
