Chelsea Clinton keeps trying to keep herself relevant.
She is using the Donald Trump strategy of social media to create a political persona to possibly launch a run for office.
But her latest attempt at being a partisan attack dog ended in tagging Michelle Obama.
Liberals always accuse Republicans of starving children, wanting to kill old people, and throwing the poor out of their houses.
It’s standard Democratic fare every time a Republican President or Congress tries to pass a budget.
Chelsea Clinton thought she could drum up some outrage by blasting Trump for rolling back Michelle Obama’s controversial school lunch rules.
Research again confirms kids pay more attention in class & better retain what they're taught when they're not hungry https://t.co/USnUyctStI

This tweet quickly turned into a disaster.
That’s because Twitter users quickly pounced and pointed out it was Michelle Obama’s school lunch rules that left kids starving due to smaller portions and serving foods coastal liberals love, but children rejected.
So then you opposed @MichelleObama's school lunch program, which perpetually left kids hungry, correct?

Maybe you should talk to Michelle Obama about wasted school lunches before blaming Republicans

Trump was elected to erase Obama’s disastrous agenda.
And schools and children are cheering his move to end Michelle Obama’s school lunch rules.
The Washington Examiner reports:
“Faced with students who won’t buy lunches low in salt and sugar and jacked up with bland-tasting grains, the nation’s 54,000 school cafeteria workers are urging Washington to junk health-focused rules pushed by former first lady Michelle Obama.
Feeling that they have an ally on their side in the Trump administration, their lobby group, the School Nutrition Association, plans to press for less-strict restrictions on ingredients that taste good.
The reason is simple: Studies show that public school students aren’t eating what cafeterias are serving, turning many operations into money-losers. While the school districts can opt out, doing so results in federal subsidy cuts for those programs.
“Overly prescriptive regulations have resulted in unintended consequences, including reduced student lunch participation, higher costs and food waste. Federal nutrition standards should be modified to help school menu planners manage these challenges and prepare nutritious meals that appeal to diverse student tastes,” a new policy paper from the association said.”
Chelsea Clinton should have checked her facts.
Yes, kids need full stomachs to succeed during the school day.
But because of Michelle Obama’s mandates, kids were starving.
She thought she could be clever and attack Trump, but it backfired when it exposed Michelle Obama’s lunch program as a failure.
