Dr. Keith Ablow continues to controversially diagnose President Obama on national TV, this time suggesting that Obama doesn’t really want cops to protect us from criminals or terrorists.
Apparently getting into the president’s head, Ablow previously claimed that Obama was purposely allowing Ebola to spread here because he wanted America to suffer. He also created an uproar some months ago by suggesting that Michelle Obama could stand to drop a few pounds.
In an appearance on Fox News’ Outnumbered yesterday, Ablow participated in a discussion on the Fox couch (rather than a psychiatrist’s couch) about the execution-style murder of police officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu.
Alluding to Mayor Bill de Blasio’s lack of support for the NYPD that some argue contributed to the assassination, Ablow claimed that Obama shares the same ideological views that promote divisiveness.
I think [Obama] wants us — this is my perspective, other psychiatrists may disagree — my perspective is he wants us to doubt all our institutions. This is just the extension of the apology tour. It’s an extension of ‘you didn’t build that business,’ ‘and the local cops that you thought you could rely on, you can’t.’ When you have nothing to believe in anymore, where you do go? You go home to a central, powerful authority. And you say, ‘I don’t know who I am anymore, can you tell me president or commander?'”
Ablow, in response to a question from co-host Harris Allen about the role of the police moving forward, added the following.
“I do not think he wants us protected [by the police]; hey we’ll get mail, and I’ll get heat. I don’t care; I don’t think he does.”
In a separate Fox appearance this week, the doctor insisted that “the whole policing program with wearing body cameras and the rest of it is an insult to police officers.”
Ablow, who recently re-upped with Fox, is a graduate of Brown University and the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine — and is a board-certified psychiatrist. Whether you agree with him or not, that Ablow practices medicine in liberal Massachusetts suggests that he is either very foolhardy or gutsy in offering his analysis so publicly.
In October, Ablow offered to make a house call at the White House to “explain to [President Obama] why psychologically he is not serving us well, and he can’t seem to keep [ISIS] from coalescing and going on the march, and why he can’t seem to convince Americans that they’re safe, because you’re not safe when the guy who has the Oval Office doesn’t like you.”
Do you agree with Dr. Keith Ablow about Obama allegedly undermining support for police agencies? If not, does his commentary give you a headache?
