Political satirist John Fugelsang talks to “Viewpoint” host Eliot Spitzer about the recent fascination with Paul Ryan’s workout regimen of choice, a home exercise system called P90X. This, along with a photograph of Ryan shirtless, captured the media’s attention this week.
Fugelsang jokes about the image in question: “It’s a shame when a homophobe would make such a great gay porn star.”
He goes on. “I’m like a ‘before’ picture next to this guy. I have respect for that. … But here’s the thing: These guys will talk all day about fitness — they’ll never talk about the crap we put in our bodies. You know, you’ll hear politicians talk about the importance of being physically fit and exercise — they won’t talk about the fact that most of our food that comes in boxes is garbage, and that’s the real struggle for America’s health.”
