Dr. Ablow Psychoanalyzes Obama: 'He's Playing the Victim'

As seen on Fox and Friends

President Obama has insisted that Republicans were “holding people hostage” and engaging in “ransom taking” during the government shutdown.

While the average person might think that Obama’s words are nothing more than partisan rhetoric, psychiatrist Keith Ablow said Obama’s words reveal more about his mindset.

“There’s a real victim mentality here,” Ablow said during an appearance on Fox and Friends.

“It really explains the president’s whole mentality…if he feels victimized and if millions and millions of us have been victimized by America ... well that explains why he wouldn’t negotiate with ‘hostage takers’ and ‘victimizers’ who have kidnapped him and threatened to destroy him," he explained.

Watch the full segment to hear more of Ablow's psychoanalysis of the president.
