Is Barack Obama anorexic?

Is Barack Obama anorexic?

By Bonnie Ruberg

As Jezebel notes, our President-elect is a notoriously picky eater. But could he be anorexic? It’s a question that came up — along with “What the heck is Michelle Obama wearing?” and “Hey, did Barack just get hot?” — when I was sitting around with female friends the evening of the election. Jezebel agrees there’s something up:

It was kind of shocking to learn that Barack Obama, our dashing president-crush-elect, is apparently rife with food neuroses. Since the campaign post-mortems started coming out last week, we’ve learned that the President-elect has weird aversions, hang-ups, odd pancake behaviors and a strong abstemious streak — none of which his wife, Michelle, seems to share. As a woman who’s lived with picky men, I can relate. As a voter, I feel somewhat blindsided.

I too live with a picky, skinny boy, but I can’t help but wonder whether Obama’s quirks, which include ordering food from good, old-fashioned American grease joints and then never eating it, don’t point toward an eating disorder. Unlike most other presidential candidates, he reportedly lost weight on the campaign trail instead of gaining. He’s pretty much a stick to begin with. Maybe he just likes what he likes. Maybe he loses his appetite under pressure. But I know at least one other guy who has a very similar build, a lot of parallel issues with food, and a diagnosed case of anorexia. Being around scrumptious things makes him straight-up sick to his stomach.

Sound like any president elect you know?
