It was former First Lady Michelle Obama’s 56th birthday yesterday and while most of the world celebrated it, like seen in former President Barack Obama’s post below, Donald Trump instead tried to ruin it by doing something absolutely terrible.
“In every scene, you are my star, @MichelleObama! Happy birthday, baby!” President Barack Obama wrote on social media, while the Trump administration made an announcement that deeply impacts Michelle’s legacy in the White House.

Yesterday Trump’s administration announced that they will be ruining and reversing school lunch standards on vegetables and fruits that were put into place by Michelle Obama during her time in the White House. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said in a statement that the Trump admin will reduce the amount of fruits and vegetable required in school lunches, which Michelle put into place using an executive order signed by former President Obama.
This is a direct assault on Michelle’s “Let’s Move!” healthy living campaign, on her birthday. They could have done this at any point during this year or last year, but they specifically chose yesterday to destroy a program created by Michelle, on her birthday. This ain’t a coincidence. Its pure evil.
More evidence this was personal, is that the Department of Agriculture itself found that Michelle’s work, “had a positive and significant influence on nutritional quality” because she got students eating more vegetables and fruits, and less burgers and fries. It also found that food waste levels remained essentially unchanged, but the Trump admin justified yesterday’s announcement by saying, “Schools and school districts continue to tell us that there is still too much food waste.”
Michelle’s rules were nothing but a good thing that should have been done long ago. But Trump is pure evil and on top of that, he eats garbage everyday, so he is just trying to make school lunches more like what he eats all day.
