  • Boom: GOP Looks to Shut Down Michelle O’s School Lunches

    01/30/2017 2:32:29 PM PST · by davikkm · 26 replies
    Donald Trump and the Republicans aren’t just making America great again. They’re making Taco Tuesday great again, too. According to Fox News, Republicans in Congress are looking into legislation that would roll back portions of former first lady Michelle Obama’s controversial school lunch program, likely meaning the end of the inedible stuff. A document posted on the website of Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., called for rolling back parts of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 in Trump’s first 100 days. The Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, for those of you unaware, is the rather Orwellian name for the...

    Obama’s story, like so many in life on earth has come and has passed. And while some 62 million people get it, Obama still doesn’t get that the ‘Man from No Where’, who came into power on a stage with faux Greek columns back in 2008, is NO MORE It’s, mercifully, the last full day of Barack Hussein Obama in the White House, and he’s still bullying his way out the door. Obama must have watched too many “Get out of Dodge by sundown” cowboy movies as a boy, and hung out too long with actors as an adult if...

    The force was definitely with Katie Stricker Curtis, 32, on January 3rd when she gave birth to her first child, a girl named Jayden Lee. The medical assistant from Windsor, Ontario, decided to don a Star Wars Chewbacca mask during labor, leaving the staff at Windsor Regional Hospital in stitches. A ten-second clip of her going through labor while wearing the Chewy mask was posted to her Facebook page on January 2nd and has since gotten over 216,000 views. This isn't the first time that a Chewbacca mask made the news in a hilarious way. Earlier this year, another video...

As unwitting Americans took their turn standing in front of a photo of the First Lady to record themselves thanking her for helping them be more confident, work harder, and be more compassionate, Fallon pulled aside a curtain and let her walk out to surprise them. Some of them cried. Some of them squealed. Some of them hugged her like they’d known her their whole lives.

From The Star-Telegram: In her final speech as first lady on Friday, Michelle Obama singled out young immigrants and Muslims, many of whom express apprehension about President-elect Donald Trump. “Do not ever let anyone make you feel like you don’t matter, or like you don’t have a place in our American story — because you do,” she said. “Know that this country belongs to you, to all of you.

    The soon-to-be former President Obama will take his last flight on Air Force One after the soon-to-be President Donald Trump takes office, the White House confirmed. Citing tradition, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest confirmed that President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama would be leaving Washington D.C. on Air Force one after Donald Trump’s inauguration. The pair will leave the White House for the last time aboard Marine One before Air Force One takes them someplace warm, according to their plans. Obama has referred to his post-inauguration plans for years. “I know what I’ll do right after the next...

    And so it ends the way it began – with a big party; a private party for friends and donors (redundant) that was closed to the press. Apparently it was casual Friday as both David Letterman and Robert DiNiro arrived in sweaters. I’m a little surprised DiNiro was allowed in at all, as he is on record having threatened to punch President Elect Trump in the face. I guess that’s okay though, since Trump isn't Black.The graybeards haven’t aged that well; possibly due to all the teeth gnashing over the past 2 months.The party was otherwise populated with what have...

    The first lady seems bitter that the voters, like rebellious teens, aren’t taking the Obamas’ advice anymore. Last month, Michelle Obama sat down with Oprah Winfrey for what many assumed would be one of those feel-good, lighthearted interviews. Past first ladies have provided similar end-of-term interviews, in which they tend to display both astonishment and relief that it’s all over, coupled with the proper magnanimity and graciousness toward the next family to reside in the White House. Yet, this time was different. Far from feel-good, Mrs. Obama seemed more like a frustrated mother lamenting the rebelliousness of her growing child....

So, what better way to look back at the Obamas' legacy than remembering all the times Michelle Obama mom-danced her way through her role as First Lady. During Barack's presidency, Michelle has been very active in supporting causes she believes in. She's encouraged healthy eating habits, promoted an active lifestyle...

And ringing. Mrs. Obama's powerfully delivered speech had attracted much attention - but these phone calls were about her dress. A shimmering sleeveless sheath in rose and silvery gray, it was pretty universally considered a fashion slam dunk. And customers wanted it.

Noting that we’re now feeling what not having hope feels like, Mrs. Obama explained how “hope” was more than a slogan for Barack Obama. “Our children respond to crises the way they see us respond,” Mrs. Obama said. “You know, it’s like the toddler that bumps his head on the table and they look up at you to figure out if it hurts.” She went on to...

    Michelle Obama once told us that she had never been proud of her country until her husband was nominated for the presidency. She just told Oprah Winfrey we Americans are entering a time of hopelessness – "we are feeling what not having hope feels like." The end of hope is a severe condemnation. No pride is to be bestowed on people without hope. But it is what Mrs. Obama believes. She was not proud of America until she was 44 years old, when she said of her husband's 2008 Democrat presidential nomination, "For the first time in my adult life,...

Bovada, an online gambling site, says the odds of Mrs. Obama winning are 12-to-1. The next-best Democrats, Sen. Tim Kaine and Elizabeth Warren, get odds of 14-to-1. By contrast three Republicans have higher odds: President-elect Donald Trump is a 2-to-1 bet to repeat, while Vice President-elect Mike Pence and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan are each given 10-to-1 odds.

    First lady Michelle Obama´s speech this week slamming Donald Trump´s comments about women was "the most effective political speech since Ronald Reagan," according to right-wing commentator Glenn Beck. On his TV program Friday, Beck said his viewers should watch Obama´s speech to see its "devastating effects. And I don´t mean on Donald Trump. I mean on the conservative movement." "We had been talking about, ´there is no war on women.´ You just handed them a war on women," Beck said. "And if you listen to her words carefully, oh my gosh, oh my gosh, they are coopting women and it...

    If it’s up to the liberal media, Blessed Teresa of Calcutta is just going to have to take a back seat: there’s a budding new saint in town, and her name is Michelle Obama. Morning Joe began the canonization process today, beatifying the First Lady for her speech trashing Donald Trump over the stories about his personal behavior that have recently emerged. All the ongoing glorification of Mrs. Obama on the Morning Joe set was leavened with some unintentional humor from Joe Scarborough, who said of the First Lady’s speech that “there was nothing calculated about it. This wasn’t to...

    During a stop on Clinton's campaign trail on Thursday, the first lady gave a speech that blew away the crowd. Obama's powerful and emotional speech came down on Donald Trump’s vulgar comments about women, and sexual assault. "The fact is in this election we have a candidate for president of the United States who over the course of his lifetime and the course of this campaign has said things about women that are so shocking, so demeaning, I simply will not repeat anything here today," Flotus said. "And last week we saw this candidate actually bragging about sexual assaulting women....

    First lady Michelle Obama is making sure that whoever inhabits the White House next doesn’t rip out her iconic vegetable garden — at least not without a big fuss. Obama Wednesday afternoon unveiled a much bigger version of the garden that uses cement, stone and steel to make it a more permanent fixture on the South Lawn. The updates are seen not just as preserving Obama’s garden — recognized globally as a symbol of local food — but also as a way to dissuade, say, a President Donald Trump from scrapping it the way Ronald Reagan tore out Jimmy...

    Michelle Obama told supporters in Philadelphia on Wednesday that candidates don’t change once they become president and that America “needs an adult in the White House.” […] “The presidency doesn’t change who you are; it reveals who you are,” she told the cheering crowd. […] She said the country needs a leader who is steady and measured because when making war-or-peace decisions, “the president can’t just pop off or lash out irrationally. No, we need an adult in the White House, I guarantee you.” …

    Michelle Obama, campaigning for Hillary Clinton, unleashed a barrage of attacks on Donald Trump on Wednesday, calling the Republican nominee “erratic and threatening.” The first lady — who famously said in her convention speech this summer that when Republicans “go low, we go high” — portrayed Trump as a monster during a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania campaign rally. “If a candidate is erratic and threatening; if a candidate traffics in prejudice, fears and lies on the campaign trail;
