Belgium Appoints Morbidly Obese Person as Minister of Health

Belgium has named the politician and former M.D. Maggie de Block as their new Health Minister.  Faced with criticism that she is not a good choice for the position due to her unhealthy appearance, she responded by saying she cannot accept that (the criticism) and said that she should instead be judged on her record over the next 5 years.

In France, we make a lot of jokes about Belgians. Now you understand why...

Maggie is a fantastic woman. It's not because she is overweight, that she doesn't know what is healthy. People shouldn't be judged based on their weight. She knows better than anyone what it means to struggle. She's an easy target for people who like to judge others. She has proven she is a great minister in the past when she was responsible for immigration. Like 80% of the belgian people, I believe she will do a great job. Stop looking at others and start with yourself...

Maybe you can convince her to go vegan.

Not hatin' just sayin.

As far as i'm concerned being vegan and statist at the same time is contradictory and thus impossible.

Yeah, I usually understand where Freelee is coming from with her videos, but I don't like how people are picking on this woman--every Belgian I've heard from says she's really great at what she does and that's why she got the job. Sure, it'd be great if she now tried to look the part, but... come on. People have weight issues, it doesn't mean they deserve derision.
