Chelsea Clinton Made An Absurd Claim That Backfired In A Big Way

Like mother, like daughter — Chelsea Clinton has again made it her mission to build a career on blaming Republicans for all the ills of the world.

Clinton has tried to become a social justice warrior in recent months, taking to Twitter to complain about the policies of the Trump administration.

Clinton recently tweeted a message to criticize the administration’s plans to overhaul many nutritional requirements of lunches provided in our children’s public schools.

But this time, in her effort to blame the current administration, Clinton actually ended up bashing Michelle Obama.

While First Lady, Obama made it her mission to overhaul the public-school lunch system in order to create healthier options and smaller portions.

But there is only one problem with that — the students themselves won’t eat the meals.

Clinton’s attempt to criticize Republicans for starving schoolchildren blew up in her face when parents and students alike fired back to blame Michelle Obama’s changes for the reason kids are not eating at school.

The Blaze reported:

“Research again confirms kids pay more attention in class & better retain what they’re taught when they’re not hungry,” Clinton wrote.

“Sadly, many Republicans continue to argue against free school lunches & breakfasts & against nutritional support for families,” Clinton wrote.

Though she was obviously trying to bash Republicans, Clinton ended up bashing Michelle Obama. That’s because while her husband was president, Obama worked to completely overhaul the national school lunch program while expanding the free and reduced lunch program.

Indeed, the Obama administration was successful in overhauling the program. However, the changes they implemented were not popular and students across the country for years have taken to social media to post the unappetizing and small lunches they now receive at school all thanks to the changes Obama made.

Trump’s Secretary of Agriculture, Sonny Perdue, announced changes would soon be made to school lunch programs implemented by Obama.

USA Today reported:

On May 1, Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue announced the changes, which ease rules on whole grains required in school lunch meals and delay a requirement for further reductions in sodium.

Perdue said the changes were needed to give local programs more flexibility to provide meals that children want to eat.

“If kids aren’t eating the food, and it’s ending up in the trash, they aren’t getting any nutrition,” he said in a statement announcing the rollbacks.

Parents and students alike have complained for years that lunch portions were too small, flavorless, and ended up in the trash.

Michelle Obama’s effort to get kids to eat at school backfired in a big way.

And Chelsea Clinton’s tweet added fuel to the fire when she complained children are not learning because they are hungry at school.

They are hungry because they don’t like the Obama administration’s lunch options.

Perhaps Chelsea Clinton should fact-check herself before blaming Republicans for ineffective policies implemented by her own party.
