Shut Up, Michelle

It appears that our meddling ex-first lady is upset that the Trump administration is rolling back the guidelines on school lunches that were championed by Michelle Obama.  John Sexton reports:
“And this is where you really have to look at motives,” Mrs. Obama said. She continued, “You have to stop and think, why don’t you want our kids to have good food at school? What is wrong with you?” Later in her statement, Mrs. Obama said, “Like me, don’t like me but think about why someone is okay with your kids eating crap. Why would you celebrate that?”
You're right, Michelle, we have to look at motives.  Why would an unelected busy-body stick her nose in where it wasn't wanted?   No one made Michelle Obama the guru of nutrition.  The guidelines she championed have been roundly cursed by nearly everyone in the country.   But, it leads to a bigger question; what is the FedGov doing in the education business at all?  Education is rightly a function of state and local government.

But, on a more succinct note, Michelle Obama had her time int he sun.  She really needs to go sit down, shut up, and enjoy the fruits of her husband's retirement.  Adults are running the country now, and her opinion is neither wanted nor welcome.

Heh, any normal politician or public persona would fade into the woodwork after their brief moment in the spot light. But not these carbuncles! They've tasted that exhilarating blast of addictive adulation from the spawn of the baby boomers. Moochella and her ilk will hang around until the last vestige of emotional and monetary plunder can be wrested from their sycophants.

Were these the healthy and nutritious meals the kids wouldn't eat?
