Fox News' Dr. Ablow World Cup Conspiracy: It's To 'Distract People' From Obama's Problems

Dr. Keith Ablow spins a conspiracy about how the 84-year-old World Cup is actually orchestrated to distract people from President Obama's problems!

Of all the latest conspiracies President Obama is supposedly responsible for, this might be the weirdest of all. Keith Ablow, a prominent Fox News psychiatrist and contributor, was on "Outnumbered" Thursday morning and the topic turned to the massive support in the USA for the World Cup. Kimberly Guilfoyle, a contributor, told the panel how psyched she was that the country is getting into the soccer craze, but when Ablow opened his mouth, he stunned even the most hardcore Foxers with his crazy talk. Via Wonkette:

Ablow: I am suspect because, here's the thing. Why, at a time when there are so many national and international issues of such prominence, I'm a little suspicious of yet another bread and circus routine. Let's roll out the marijuana, pull back the laws, and get people even more crazy about yet another entertainment event."

What's wrong with you?

Ablow: This is a way to distract people.

Powers: You have a very dark world view.

Ablow: This is like Rome. I can see why Obama would love the World Cup -

Guilfoyle: What are you talking about? This is encouraging for kids to get out and play sports, and you can play soccer from a young age.

Ablow: It's overblown...

I think Doctor Ablow is in need of some very long and aggressive therapy for himself. The World Cup was started in 1930 and happens every four years just like the Olympics does, so is saying that FIFA is part of the new world order that prophesied the coming of Obama in 2008 and laid the ground work for this particular world cup to take some heat off his presidency?

That's Crazy Talk!
