Michelle Obama got hit with some really bad news.
Obama and her allies were furious.
And that’s because Donald Trump just hit Michelle Obama with this big defeat. Here’s how Trump crushed her.
During Michelle Obama’s eight years as First Lady, the healthy school lunch initiative was her signature policy initiative.
Like all cosmopolitan liberals, Obama turned her nose up at the regular food kids liked to eat and instead imposed a Soviet-style “one-size-fits-all” federal government mandate to stock school lunch menus with sparse portions of foods that trendy liberals in big cities like to consume.
President Trump took office on a promise to rollback Barack Obama’s heavy-handed regulatory agenda.
In the first three years of his Presidency, Trump achieved historic success in freeing the American people from Obama regulations that choked off freedom.
Part of that victory on behalf of the American people was ending Michelle Obama’s Soviet-inspired school lunch program.
In an act of spiking the football, the Trump administration announced it was ending Michelle Obama’s big government takeover of school lunches on the former First Lady’s birthday.
Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue announced the administration returning control of the lunch menu to local schools.
“Schools and school districts continue to tell us that there is still too much food waste and that more common-sense flexibility is needed to provide students nutritious and appetizing meals. We listened and now we’re getting to work,” Secretary Perdue wrote. “Our proposed changes empower schools to give their very best to our children nationwide and have the potential to benefit nearly 100,000 schools and institutions that feed 30 million children each school day through USDA’s school meal programs. Providing children with wholesome, nutritious food is part of our motto at USDA, which is to ‘do right and feed everyone.’”
After the decision, liberals attacked the administration for supposedly allowing kids to stuff their faces with pizza, cheeseburgers and French fries.
Secretary Perdue shot down this fake news in a second press statement.
“This mischaracterizes the proposal, which makes only limited changes to existing requirements. The current standards allow burgers, pizza, and other entrees to be available a la carte on the day of reimbursement and the day after. The proposal released makes only a small change in that it adds an additional day’s flexibility for schools that wish to serve lunch entrees as a la carte foods in an effort to reduce food waste. This proposal would therefore allow service of an entrée item the day it was served, the day after, and only 1 additional day, not for all 5 days in the school week. Further, the rule makes no changes to side dishes sold a la carte (such as French fries), but requests comment on such flexibilities,” a Department of Agriculture press release explained.
Michelle Obama and her big government jackboots think bureaucrats in Washington know what is best.
The Trump administration understands that local communities best understand their own needs and must be empowered to make decisions that affect their lives.
