The Trump administration is discontinuing a signature girls education initiative championed by former first lady Michelle Obama, according to officials.

The "Let Girls Learn" program, which she and President Barack Obama started in 2015 to facilitate educational opportunities for adolescent girls in developing countries, will cease operation immediately, according to an internal document obtained by CNN.

News of the program's end came the same day President Donald Trump's agriculture secretary, Sonny Perdue, was visiting an elementary school in suburban Virginia to announce changes to another initiative spotlighted by the former first lady, healthy school lunches.

Perdue was set to unveil a rule change "providing regulatory flexibility for the National School Lunch Program" during a visit to Catoctin Elementary School in Leesburg. Like "Let Girls Learn," improving the nutritional quality of school meals was a major focus of Obama's during her tenure as first lady.

The "Let Girls Learn" program, which she and President Barack Obama started in 2015 to facilitate educational opportunities for adolescent girls in developing countries,

I doubt adolescent girls in developing countries had much use for learning about abortion on demand, Global Warming and transgender rights.

Just an overlap program. It’s like....I start one organization and get x dollars. If I start 10, I’m sure as hell going to get more than x dollars. It’s called....suckers....and in many cases, it’s you and I picking up the tab.

Speaking of programs,, while just reading that the
Obama’s joint book in progress was worth a payday of
$65 Million bucks (hey suckers!),, and that they
were worth 60 Million bucks. How many programs does
one president have to start in 8 years to leave
the WH with 60 Millions? Just asking?

When did we elect old Sour Puss to spend our tax money on her worthless projects? Guess Paul Ryan was feeling warm and fuzzy the day he approved that last year. After all, it’s not his money.

If that were a recent photo I would have wondered if she bought it from Bruce Jenner. Unless of course she was born with it.
