Trump's Two Scoops of Ice Cream; Michelle Obama Food Nazi

By Douglas V. Gibbs

According to CNN, and the original article in TIME Magazine, "Trump getting two scoops of ice cream, and everyone else getting one", says a lot; mainly, that Trump has a lack of self-restraint.  It's big news to these people who hate President Donald Trump, and they are willing to reach for anything to try to discredit him. . . including scoops of ice cream.

I think their other message is, "See, Trump is unwilling to be like the collective, and demands more for his greed individual tastes."  Equality.  Equity.  From the liberal left's point of view, we must be genderless, own no possessions, be no different from each other in any way, and be happy with only one scoop of ice cream like everyone else.

"We are the Democrats, and we believe that everyone should be equal."

Yeah, equally miserable.

Really?  This is even a news story?  Hell, I wasn't even going to touch it until I began to think about it, and saw a great response by Jeff Badura on Facebook.

"Trump should announce a 9pm presser on Sun, be 30 min late, come out, eat 2 scoops of ice cream, answer no Q's, then leave."

That would be epic.

The other one read, "Trump demands 2 scoops of ice cream.  Michelle took ice cream away from school kids.  WHO'S THE FASCIST AGAIN?"

CNN, moments after I saw the Facebook quote, then put out the following:

There is an old saying.  "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink."

During the Obama presidency, Michelle was very involved in trying to bring healthy lunches to the cafeterias of America's public schools (if they are going to eat on the government's dime, then dammit, they will eat the way I tell them).

"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?" Obama said at the annual summit of the Partnership for a Healthier America, a nonprofit that works with the private and public sectors to fight childhood obesity. "Why would that be political?"

It's not political, you stupid leftist moron.  Make it a little more tasty, and maybe the kids will start eating again.  The children are not eating your meals that are based on your Obama-era school lunch guidelines.

Of course, for leftists like Michelle Obama, the truth means nothing.  Only her feel-good attempt at control matters.  And, I am willing to bet, her response is (when she thinks nobody is listening), "If the little brats won't eat my health food, force them to!"

Obama's comments were a response to Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue signing a proclamation that relaxes standards for the upcoming school year in three key areas: whole grains, salt and milk.

Before I go on, there is this little thing called the U.S. Constitution that does not grant the federal government any authority regarding education, or what the kids eat.

Now, under the new proclamation, the Agriculture Secretary is allowing the States to grant exemptions to schools experiencing hardship in meeting the 100% whole-grain-rich standard.

The federal government didn't create the States, the States created the federal government.  The States are the contract-makers, and the parents over the federal government.  The federal government was not created to tell the States what to do, the States created to federal government and it is their role to tell the federal government what it can or can't do.

Schools will no longer need to hit the strictest target for lowering sodium in foods offered to students. And meal programs will be able to serve students 1% flavored milk instead of fat-free flavored milk.
Do the Democrats not see how these government-control policies are totalitarian?  Who in the hell are they to tell anyone how they are allowed to eat?

The policy change loosens school meal standards Obama advocated as first lady through Let's Move!, her signature public health campaign aimed at combating childhood obesity.
Obama -- who did not mention President Donald Trump or first lady Melania Trump by name -- emphasized that it's important to make sure parents think about the importance of healthy school lunches.
"Moms, think about this," she said. "I don't care what state you live in. Take me out of the equation; like me, don't like me, but think about why someone is OK with your kids eating crap."
I get it.  We should eat healthier.  But, it is not the government's job to mandate it!

Obama said she will continue to fight for the cause.
And they call Trump the fascist?

"My commitment to these issues is real," she said. "I picked this issue because there was deep passion for it as a mother. ... I'm going to continue working on this."

Good, then if eating right is so important, why do you eat foods you consider unhealthy?

Besides, we should listen to her wisdom, right?  After all, Michelle Obama is such a moral individual.

Never mind.
