Pelosi joins FLOTUS to attack dastardly white potatoes; isn’t that a little racist?

The Obama administration may not be ready to intervene in Iraq, Syria, Nigeria or Ukraine, but it sure is ready to butt in on the daily eating habits of America’s women and children.

The latest bombing run was a mean-spirited harangue by Rep. Nancy Pelosi – that fount of eternal wisdom – on those churlish fiendish Republicans, who want to allow more white potatoes to be purchased by low-income ladies on the Women, Infants and Children program.

The omniscient House Minority Leader scolded the GOP Friday, for living in the Dark Ages and serving as lackeys of “special interests,” in a rant aired on C-SPAN.

Referring to the Agricultural Appropriations bill, Pelosi said, “Republicans are going after the nutrition for pregnant women and children, the WIC Program, mandating that it include more white potatoes. You know – talking about food, vegetables, whole grains and the rest – and they have an amendment that says more white potatoes than nutritionists recommend.” Zounds, how dastardly!

After getting warmed up, she advanced with her nuclear armament. “These assaults on essential nutritional standards are really hard to explain to anybody, but we know they reject science, they ignore cold hard facts and evidence, betray the best interest of America’s families while they protect special interests, so we have to do what is right…”

Indeed, those Republicans are Neanderthals.

Dems can’t even get a Flag Day picture right: ‘Celebration’ turns into mockery instead

Pelosi’s bombast followed on the heels of an OpEd piece by Michelle Obama in the New York Times on May 29, which lambasted the GOP for allowing white potatoes on WIC benefits, because they “increase childhood obesity.”

Obama wrote that “Congress is trying ‘to override science.’ The problem is that many women and children already consume enough potatoes and not enough of the nutrient-dense fruits and vegetables they need.”

Never one to wallow in self-righteousness, it couldn’t be that kids like spuds more than broccoli. She continued in the Times, “This is unacceptable. It’s unacceptable to me not just as First Lady but also as a mother.”

Moreover, she said that “Congress shouldn’t even have the authority to decide what foods schools are serving. Experts should make those rules.”

Yes, like climate change, another closed science. From a lady who said she was never proud to be an American until her husband was elected president.

How lucky is America to have Nancy and Michelle as guiding lights! Republicans are just a bunch of potato-heads anyway.

    When not deep fried and loaded with overdoses of fat and salt the good old potato is more nutritional than most of what the illiterate first lady recommends.

      Besides FAT is Actually Good for you… strip it away and your nervous system slows down. Your organs can regulate heat as well, you joints start to hurt more. Your body runs on SUGAR and FAT for energy.

      Problem is to mamy sit on the Butt jobs and not enough Got off your BUTT jobs. Real work is better for you then office work. We waste billions trying make up for the lake of movement in our jobs. Look at the costs.

      You can have more cash to spend be healthier in a labor job, then 98% of office jobs…… think about.

      USA pussification is almost complete. The Empire might win if keep acting like sheep in Glass Cages.

      Very high in potassium, or does that sound too much like possum, and it is racist as well.

    As big as her fat ass is, I am certain she has been chowing down on lots of white potatoes.

    • Abunchofbullshit

      • Beeotchstewie

        She and her husband are YT haters from way back.

    I would rather have kids eating potatoes, which can be very nutritious, than throwing their food away and not eating anything.

      DIVOLUTION!

    Potatoes are high is vitamin C, and baked potatoes are nutritious. They are especially good with broccoli and cheese. Pelosi and Michelle are showing their ignorance about nutrition. Pelosi rambles on using wild hand gestures and never makes any sense. She’s a joke.

    Michelle Obama’s comments that “Congress shouldn’t have the authority to decide what foods schools are serving. Experts should make those rules.” Michelle Obama’s claim to fame as FLOTUS is her ‘fight’ to regulate school lunch menu’s to include only healthy, fat free foods to combat the childhood obesity epidemic. Apparently, according to her comment, Congress should have no authority in making recommendations for school meal programs, leaving the decisions only to experts. So is this Michelle’s round about way of claiming to be a nutritionist, dietician, doctor or just a EXPERT in general? BTW, I just watched a report last week of the cost to our education system in the implementation of her new menu plans for the schools. It appears the cost have tripled, right along with the amount of food waste in the garbage. Schools have also reported loss in school lunch revenue with an increase to brown bag lunches from home. This goes to show that none of these nimrods have a clue when they speak about anything. While trying to put another yoke around the necks of the GOP, both Michelle and Nancy have proved that their tongue is not connected to their brain. But then again, could we ever expect anything else from this bunch?

      She acts like every parent is advocating twinkie sandwiches.

    I’m sure Michelle Obama seeks the counsel of The Messiah. He is the world’s foremost authority on any and all subjects. End of discussion. HEIL OBAMA!

    The science is in, maybe Pelosi and Obama should look at it.. potatoes are higher in Vitiman C and potassium than bananas, they have less calories too .. neither one has a any sodium or Cholesterol and potatoes are lower in carbohydrates
