Donald Trump always talks about how he plans to “make America great again,” but then turns around and does things which directly contradict that promise. Like nearly everything the so-called president says, Trump’s slogans are nearly as empty as the space which exists between his ears.
A perfect example of this can be found in recent reports that Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue, is said to be considering delaying a requirement which mandates lower sodium levels in school meals and would continue to waive a requirement that schools serve more whole grain food.
Speaking at a health conference in Washington, D.C., former First Lady Michelle Obama, who has long been an advocate for healthy food for American children, took aim at the new Trump administration policy, saying:
“If we want to make this country great, our kids need to be healthy. Not some, but all.
“think about why someone is OK with your kids eating crap.”
Then, directly addressing American mothers, Mrs. Obama noted:
“You want to talk about nanny state and government intervention, well, ‘you just buy the food and be quiet and you don’t need to know what is in it.’ That is essentially what a move like this is saying to you moms.”
It’s safe to say that the majority of parents want their children to be healthy and know the importance of eating the right foods and a balanced diet. But with the Trump team now in control, your children are just guinea pigs for the agricultural behemoths and food service corporations who could care less what slop they serve your kids. These bottom line douchebags just want to increase their profits. If that winds up making American kids sick, too damn bad.
Welcome back, Mrs. Obama. We love you and hope you’ll continue to speak out.
