Sonny Perdue, the new Secretary of Agriculture, is rolling back school lunch guidelines put in place by the Obama administration. The program was championed by First Lady Michelle Obama, so it’s not surprising that she’s is not very happy about the change. In a speech Friday, Mrs. Obama got worked up over the issue saying, “We gotta make sure we don’t let anybody take us back.”

“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?”

Mrs. Obama suggested that issues like school lunches should be above politics and yet she’s asking her audience to question the motives of the people who are making these changes, i.e. the Trump administration. It seems she can’t imagine that anyone would come to a different conclusion from the one she reached unless they hate children.

But as Jazz reported a couple weeks ago, the School Nutrition Association has been lobbying for changes to the guidelines for several years, in part because of a survey it carried out in 2014 which found an 81% increase in “plate waste” since the new rules were implemented. In other words, a lot of the food wasn’t popular with the kids and was ending up in the trash. Secretary Perdue mentioned this when he announced the changes.

Notice how The Moose phrased it: "why don’t you want our kids to have good food at school?", as if ridding our schools of her slop ("81% increase in “plate waste”") means school children will be fed nothing but candy bars and potato chips with carbonated soda to wash it all down. Note also how she says, "school lunches should be above politics", as if her lunch program wasn't totally political from its inception.
