Fox’s in-house psychiatrist, Dr. Keith Ablow, once again showed why any sane network would be having him examined rather than putting him on the air as any kind of expert. First, he wrongly accused President Obama of wanting “to take everyone’s guns,” then Ablow likened him into a wife-beater “coming back” to Republicans and finally, after a brief detour of linking Obama’s abandonment issues to his belief in “disempowering the individual,” Ablow finished up with flurry of demands for Obama to resign.
Ablow appeared yesterday on Fox News Radio’s Kilmeade & Friends where he said the following about Obama’s outreach to Republicans:
…We don’t share values. Let’s not be lulled into a false sense of security. This is like the husband who beat you coming back saying, ‘I’ve changed! I’ve changed, honey!’ Look, no, you haven’t because you haven’t been in therapy with Dr. Keith Ablow.
The president continues to believe what he believed his whole life, which is based in him having been abandoned by everybody who said that they cared about him. He believes in the collective. He believes in disempowering the individual and he understands that his agenda is a progressive one. So if he has to back up a few steps in order to take six steps forward, he will.
Later, host Kilmeade wondered why – unlike other recent presidents, nobody from Obama’s own party has turned on him. Ablow responded:
I wouldn’t be moderating my position but I might say, ‘Look, the right thing for you to do is, frankly, to resign. You put us in a position where we nearly went bankrupt, What are you doing here? You’ve criticized our country, you’ve apologized for us. Get out of that office!'

Some people say he gave up his practice due to the near 100% suicide rate of his patients, some people say.
“You can’t spend time
personally, I believe that this fuck would say or do anything for media attention. But that’s just my opinion.
He’s written the following books:
- The Strange Case of Dr. Kappler: The Doctor Who Became a Killer (1994)
- Inside the Mind of Scott Peterson (2005)
- Inside the Mind of Casey Anthony: A Psychological Portrait (2011)
You can’t spend time “inside the minds” of crackpots like Kappler, Peterson, and Anthony, and not become a crackpot yourself . . .
