Skip to comments.'What is wrong with you?' Michelle Obama savages Trump's gutting of her legacy
Posted on 05/12/2017 1:39:57 PM PDT by dirtboy
Michelle Obama has made her strongest political intervention since leaving the White House, stating bluntly at a health conference: Think about why someone is OK with your kids eating crap.
One of the former first ladys signature legacies was an effort to reduce childhood obesity. Earlier this month, Donald Trumps administration froze regulations that would cut sodium and increase whole grains served in school meals.

The 53-year-old demanded: And why is that a partisan issue? Why would that be political? What is going on? You know, now thats up to moms. Moms, think about this. I dont care what state you live in. Take me out of the equation. Like me, dont like me, but think about why someone is OK with your kids eating crap. Why would you celebrate that? Why would you sit idly and be OK with that?
Because heres the secret: if somebody is doing that, they dont care about your kid, and we need to demand everyone to care deeply about kids. Thats all we have. So we should be driving this and every elected official on this planet should understand: dont play with our children. Dont do it.

Evidently riled, Obama continued: You shouldnt know what youre eating. Think about that. Stop there, think about that. You shouldnt know what youre eating. Youre OK with that? Do you know people who are OK with that? I mean, I just find myself thinking, this isnt my fight, you know, this is where youve got to look yourself in the eye.
We need to look our neighbours in the eye and kind of go: What is going on? Because this just isnt that complicated, you know. Just tell me whats in my food. Why is that a problem?

Hope he tears up her vegetable garden.
Empress Tofu is having a spasm.
This woman has dome something I didn’t think possible.
She has made me think her husband isn’t the biggest idiot on the planet.
FOAD Mooshie. Your day in the sun has passed.
Don’t go away mad....
Me too. Just don’t plant cotton LOL.
Then Michele Obama is soon forgotten.
To answer the Wookiee’s question, we like our Freedom to choose what we eat. It is the responsibility of the parent, not the school or government to determine if their child should not eat certain foods.
It should be up to moms and dads, not the feds. Take it up with your school board - or pack their lunches.
And once again the insanity of liberalism raises it’s verrrrrry ugly head.
Go away, Moochie....just go away and stay away.
WE don’t want ya, don’t need ya and could care less what ya think.
We must respect her...she might run for president in 2020!
I stopped at the word “demanded”.
Of course I should have stopped at the name, Michelle Obama.
Where is my trophy?
Before he ran, DJT would take Barron to the McD in the Trump Tower for Cheeseburger and Coke. i.e. Normal father/son thing. Empress Tofu has no understanding of real life, and has to wise up,
“Like me, dont like me, but think about why someone is OK with your kids eating crap.”
Well you got to dictate that kids have to eat crap or nothing. That is why we aren’t ok with it. This aint north korea sweaty.
