Facetiousness aside, why would Michelle Obama think that anyone would care whether she said that we could eat food today? Apparently her husband's arrogance is rubbing off on her.
Either way, in Barbara Walters's interview with the Obamas, Michelle felt compelled to let everyone know that it was okay to eat on Thanksgiving:
Michelle Obama said it's fine to eat what you want on Thanksgiving.
"Don't worry about how much you eat. Just enjoy it," she said. "This is the time. Have pie.""This is the time. Have pie." Ugh. I'm sure I don't need to say this, but I believe that individuals should be able to decide what (legal) food they can eat without Big Government or Big Brother (or sister) telling me what to do.
If the first lady wants to spend her time and money to persuade us to eat better, fine. But I fear that she wants to spend our time and our money. In her latest speech, she talks about helping grocery stores “locate in underserved areas…getting healthier food into schools…helping our kids become more active, not just in school but at home.”Hands off my turkey!
