Michelle “Put Down That Hamburger” Obama Suddenly Doesn’t Care What Kids Eat?

Michelle OFirst Lady Michelle Obama made a strikingly ironic statement Wednesday at a White House event with former First Lady Laura Bush discussing advancements on women’s empowerment.

“I tease my kids, I tell them I want them to use Instagram to take a picture of something really important rather than their food…” she said. “I mean, no one really cares what you had for lunch.”

Which Candidate Do You Support in the Republican Primaries?

‘No one really cares what you had for lunch’–really?

Tell that to the public school students who took to Twitter last March and April protesting the lack of lunch they receive in the First Lady’s Let’s Move lunch program.

Last May, House Republicans proposed to let schools opt out of the stricter breakfast and lunch programs due to loss of revenue. Mrs. Obama responded to the bill, “It’s a shame that the House Republicans are taking a step backward and allowing schools to serve more unhealthy food to children.”

Seems as if the First Lady only cares what public school students have for lunch.
