Washington Post Tells America To Stop Talking About Michelle Obama’s…


The Ulsterman

After a Republican Congressman called out Michelle Obama for her potentially contradictory campaign against childhood obesity in which she demands American families learn to “eat better” – the Washington Post charges both racism and sexism against the remark.

Wisconsin Republican congressman Jim Sensenbrenner was reportedly overheard complaining about First Lady Michelle Obama’s demands that American families and restaurants serve healthier foods with the following remark:

This forces the starving inhabitants to either travel far distances to purchase these products or make do by patronizing greasy spoon fast food restaurants or to subsist on overpriced alcoholic beverages and chips — the only foodstuffs proffered by small establishments owned by and operated by recent immigrants.

What Ms. Obama, presently enjoying a tax subsidized $4,000,000 vacation complete with tax subsidized corporate jet while attired in a dress without even sleeves costing more than a food stamp recipient’s annual food expenses, doesn’t mention are some of the causes of this human made desert. Understandably so, doing so would force her to confront some uncomfortable realities…
