  • Jenna Bush Hager: I was Body-Shamed by Grandma Barbara When I Was a Teen

    01/12/2023 12:56:36 PM PST · by nickcarraway · 74 replies
    Jenna Bush Hager wanted to “hide” when her grandma Barbara Bush body-shamed her as a teenager. The former first daughter was wearing a yellow bikini when her grandparent stated she was “looking chubby,” Bush Hager recently told “Today” show viewers. The journalist clarified last week that she “adored” her family member, who died in 2018, despite her “biting personality.” The former first lady apologized to her granddaughter years after the comment, explaining to Bush Hager that she had been “talking to [herself]” since her own mother, Pauline Pierce, “said those types of things” to her growing up.

    This plus-size woman isn’t taking any crop from her bosses. A former smoke shop staffer named Abigayle Canterbury is virally blowing the whistle on her now-ex-manager for allegedly body-shaming her for wearing a crop top during her shift — a sexy blouse often sported by her more petite co-workers without rebuke, The New York Postreports And the full-figure employee ultimately quit the gig after receiving a scathing demand to “cover the stomach.” “I got dress-coded at this job that does not have a dress code. Make that make sense — you can’t,” exclaimed Canterbury, 22, in a now-trending TikTok testimonial,...

  • Famed Florida Trump hater banned from pool after calling Biden critic a ‘fat slob’

    He went off the deep end. A Florida man famed for his intense loathing of former President Donald Trump has been banned from a community pool after berating a woman for her “Joe Biden Sucks” T-shirt, according to a report. Ed McGinty, 74, has long been known in The Villages for plastering his golf cart with signs denouncing Trump and defiantly cruising his community’s sleepy streets. The homemade placards often feature blunt language. “Biden will kick Trump’s fat ass,” reads some of McGinty’s golf cart copy. As a blaring liberal presence in a deeply conservative enclave, McGinty has often skirmished...

  • Why do high-level officials use the term pandemic of the unvaccinated, suggesting that people who have been vaccinated are not relevant in the epidemiology of COVID-19? Isn’t this view too simple? [and how the ignored elephant of obesity fits in]

    Yes it is too simple, since to begin with there is a significant discrepancy between the numbers of “breakthrough” cases reported by the CDC and that of other nations with high rates of vaccination (early adopters).[1] [2][3] [4]While CDC Director Rochelle Walensky earlier said that “vaccinated people do not carry the virus” later the CDC published its findings on a huge cluster of COVID cases in Provincetown, Massachusetts, concluding that 74 percent of cases had occurred in vaccinated people, and soon headlines reported that the CDC said “Vaccinated People With Breakthrough Infections Can Spread the Delta Variant. But while vaccination...

    (WHDH) — A school cafeteria worker is facing criminal charges after she invited teenage boys to “sleepovers” at her home, where she served them alcoholic beverages and played pornographic movies, authorities announced Tuesday. Dawn Marie Baye, 38, of Chauvin, Louisiana, was arrested on the morning of April 30 on charges including 10 counts of contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile and eight counts of indecent behavior with a juvenile, according to the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office. The sheriff’s office launched an investigation into Baye on April 21 after receiving a complaint from a concerned parent of one of the...

    Morbidly obese White House reporter, Yamiche Alcindor urged the Biden Admin to put pressure on the CDC to reverse the updated mask guidance. In March, the CDC is finally admitted what we’ve known all along: the overwhelming majority of people who were hospitalized or died from Covid were obese or overweight. “As clinicians develop care plans for COVID-19 patients, they should consider the risk for severe outcomes in patients with higher BMIs, especially for those with severe obesity,” the agency wrote. Last Thursday the CDC updated its guidance on masks and said fully vaccinated people do not need to wear...

    The Pipeline ^ | April 17, 2021 | Janice Fiamengo
    America’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the nation’s health protection agency, has declared that obesity significantly worsens Covid-19 outcomes. According to its website, obesity reduces immune function, decreases lung capacity, may make ventilation more difficult, and generally exacerbates the severity of Covid. During the first eight months of the pandemic, the CDC reports, at least three in ten Covid hospitalizations were attributed to obesity. As BMI rises, so do Covid-related risks of hospitalization, intensive care admission, mechanical ventilation, and death. These are grim facts, particularly so as the CDC also reports that obesity is on the rise, especially amongst...

    Thoughts from the 42nd Parallel ^ | 04-12-2021 | Tom Shattuck
    Most television news hosts are spokesmodels. They’re attractive and able to read. Somebody smarter develops the stories and writes the scripts and the telegenic anchor adds colorful inflection, emotive facial reaction and mechanical direction. Sometimes an anchor will engage in fiery debate with a guest. When that happens, often it is the producers who are intensely shouting information and talking points down the line to provide the illusion that the statuesque host has some depth. This is why good producers are so valuable, they are the ones furiously feeding cannon shells into the otherwise empty Howitzer (the host). When a...

    The Centers for Disease Control has a $6.6 billion budget and one job which it messes up every time. The last time the CDC had a serious workout was six years ago during the Ebola crisis. Back then CDC guidelines allowed medical personnel infected with Ebola to avoid a quarantine and interact with Americans until they showed undeniable symptoms of the disease. There were no protocols in place for treating the potentially infected resulting in the further spread of the disease inside the United States. At the height of the crisis, confidence in the CDC fell to 37%. Meanwhile, CDC...

    No, this is not from the Babylon Bee. It actually comes from the Oprah Winfrey Network, and a segment featuring Professor Britney Cooper, who sports a PhD from Emory University and who currently is an associate professor in the Department of Women’s and Gender Studies at Rutgers University. With that sort of background, perhaps it isn’t surprising to eternalize blame for obesity on racism and seem to indict President Trump for it. In fairness, she only mentions Trump before launching her indictment of racism as the cause of black female obesity. Here are few screen grabs of her subtitled rant,...

    A New Jersey professor suggested on a TV program that racism and President Donald Trump’s policies are responsible for black female obesity. Rutgers University women’s and gender studies professor Brittney Cooper made the argument during an appearance on “Black Women OWN the Conversation” on the Oprah Winfrey Network. "I hate when people talk about Black women being obese," Cooper said on the program. "I hate it because it becomes a way to blame us for a set of conditions that we didn’t create." "We are living in the Trump era," the professor said. "And look, those policies kill our...

    IN his fascinating book Unnatural Causes, forensic pathologist Dr ­Richard Shepherd observes how, over the years, the dead bodies he examines have changed. One of the most noticeable is the rapid increase in body fat. He says: “Unless a patient is homeless or has died of cancer or is so old or poor they could not eat, few are the same shape as the dead of the 1980s when I started practising. “Looking back at forensic photos from that era I am astonished at how thinness was then the norm.” Fast-forward just three decades and obesity levels are now rising...

    Mike Bloomberg’s campaign just went there with Donald Trump. After coming under a barrage of attacks from the president Sunday, Bloomberg responded by calling Trump a “pathological liar” — standard rhetoric among Democrats. But then his campaign went further. “The president,” Bloomberg spokeswoman Julie Wood said, “lies about everything: his fake hair, his obesity, and his spray-on tan.” Not since Marco Rubio mocked Trump’s supposedly small hands — a stand-in, the unspoken logic went, for lacking in another anatomical department — has one of his rivals tried to play the personal insult game against the disparager-in-chief. The common belief is...
