Michelle Obama Starved Kids and Now Slams Trump Over School Lunches
Michelle Obama starved more kids than The Great Famine of Ireland.
Ireland’s Great Famine of 1845 is seen by some historians as a turning point in Ireland’s history. Famine had been common in 19th Century Ireland and almost an occupational hazard of rural life on the Emerald Isle. However, the Great Famine of 1845 eclipsed all others.
As did Michelle Obama’s modern-day famine.
The amount of food wasted in Obama’s school lunch programs could feed the entire country of Somalia. We documented a while backk,
Penn-Trafford High School now that they ditched federal food regulations. Although the school tried to conform to the standards Obama put in place, kids refused to eat school lunches.
As Victor Skinner Reports:
The freedom from the strict restrictions on calories, fat, sugar, salt and other elements, came at the expense of federal funding to help cover free- and reduced-priced lunches for some students, but district business manager Brett Lago said the decision is already paying off in year one.
“We’ve lost, to date, about $40,000 worth of reimbursement, but our sales are up about $50,000 over last year,” he said. “Participation has gone from about 25 percent to 45 percent, and we’re still providing free lunches to all those students who would have been eligible under the school lunch program.”
Ditching the federal regulations allowed school food workers to redesign the cafeteria from a funnel system with few choices to a food court model with a deli and panini station, grill, main course counter and other stations, according to the news site.
“You get to choose what you want instead of being sort of funneled in and only having one choice,” junior Chase Zavarella said. “I think everyone is happier with the new selection.”
Senior Brianna Lander pointed to the cafeteria’s garbage cans as evidence that the new system is working better than the federal rules, which require all students to take a fruit or vegetable whether they wanted it or not.
“The trash cans were always full, sometimes overflowing,” Lander said. “You don’t see that now. People would go up to the snack line and get random junk food, where now you can get an actual meal and eat it.”
Still, the former first lady stands by her programs despite its failure.
She expressed her dissatisfaction with the new administration at a health summit in Washington D.C. Friday.
“We gotta make sure we don’t let anybody take us back,” Obama said. “This is where you really have to look at motives, you know. You have to stop and think, why don’t you want our kids to have good food at school? What is wrong with you? And why is that a partisan issue? Why would that be political? What is going on?”
The Obamas sell delusions every time they open their mouths.
The comments were Obama’s first public remarks on the Trump administration’s efforts to overhaul her idiotic “nutrition” program.
Supposedly, Obama aimed to reduce sodium and refined grains in school lunches and provide calorie counts on restaurant menus. In effect, she served children cardboard.
Obama gave her comments to Sam Kass, a longtime friend and the first executive director of her Let’s Move! program.
The former First Lady championed many of these programs, and they all failed.
We reported on an example of such failure is portion control. Under Michelle Obama’s rules, school lunches were one size fits all.
When Sheriff Joe’s diaper-wearing, bologna-sandwich-eating inmates at “tent city” eat better than your kids, America has a problem.
Michelle Obama was known for making kids hate food. Her nutrition program was ObamaCare in the form of “nutrition,” and it was universally despised by students all over America.
As Hot Air reported back in April of 2014,
Did she want large numbers of students boycotting school lunch? Although it’s a decent lesson in activism, that probably wasn’t the goal. Did she want districts taking money from teaching budgets to pay higher prices for lunches that were being thrown away?
Simply put, Michelle Obama was a food Nazi. You VILL EAT ze SLIME!
What nonsense to believe that all one size fits all for America’s children.
A 300 lb. football player and a 90 lb. cheerleader have completely different caloric needs.
Moreover, who would dare think the federal government would be better at managing the nutrition of children than their parents?!
The former First Lady appeared to take issue with Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue’s defense of the school lunch rollbacks, which he justified in part, in his May 1 announcement, by saying many kids didn’t like the foods. In response Obama said:
“That to me is one of the most ridiculous things that we talk about in this movement — ‘the kids aren’t happy,’” Obama said. “Well you know what? Kids don’t like math either. What are we gonna do, stop teaching math?”
Nice try, Nurse Ratchet!
Has this witch even looked at how well kids are learning math? They get about the same level of learning in math, as they do from the junk food the government served.
Worse, Obama makes no excuses for children throwing away her crap food, as she described what they received from home or elsewhere as “crap.”
“Take me out of the equation — like me or don’t like me,” Obama added. “But think about why someone is okay with your kids eating crap. Why would you celebrate that? Why would you sit idly and be okay with that? Because here’s the secret: If someone is doing that, they don’t care about your kid.”
The crap is out of school lunch programs and out of the White House as well.
