Scott Walker offers medical opinions, but Kim Kardashian can't?

What a double-standard:

Scott Walker can make strange, politicized comments about medical issues during a nationally-televised debate:

"I've said many a time that that unborn child can be protected, and there are many other alternatives that can also protect the life of that mother. That's been consistently proven."
Leading one writer to say, "does anyone know what Walker was referring to?"

And there was this earlier discussion which suggested Walker was familiar with female neuroscience and felt obliged to share it with media:

Scott Walker: women only concerned with rape and incest in 'initial months' of pregnancy
Yet the FDA lowers the boom on Kim Kardashian for passing along some medical advice on her Instagram account:
In a letter dated Aug. 7, the Food and Drug Administration has ordered the company to take it down. 
“The Office of Prescription Drug Promotion … has reviewed the Kim Kardashian Social Media Post,” the letter begins, ominously. "The social media post is false or misleading in that it presents efficacy claims for DICLEGIS, but fails to communicate any risk information."
Risk information?

Think Walker cares about that?

No respect for Kim K., but latitude for Scott K?

Actually, you might have a point.
