Trolling?

The Trump administration could’ve waited until Friday to make this announcement. That would’ve been the day after former First Lady Michelle Obama’s birthday. But they didn’t. They did it on her birthday. Trolling? Here’s what’s up, via Washington Examiner:

The United States Department of Agriculture proposed ditching requirements for fruits and vegetables in school lunches to allow for more grab-and-go lunch options.

Former first lady Michelle Obama, who is celebrating her 56th birthday on Friday, used her platform in the White House to promote healthy living, including advocating for exercise and more nutritious school lunches. While her husband was in office, Obama helped the USDA usher in requirements demanding that schools offer more fruits and vegetables, abolish trans fats, serve only low-fat milk, and cut back on sodium.

At least two liberals weren’t thrilled:

But a new proposal could scrap some of those requirements. Acting Deputy Under Secretary Brandon Lipps announced that the department would be cutting the amount of fruits and vegetables that must be served with food outside the cafeteria by half and scaling back restrictions on cafeteria staples like pizza and hamburgers.

Lipps argued that policies enacted under Obama had unintended consequences. He used the example of grab-and-go food carts that require students to buy two bananas if they purchase a slice of pizza in order to be compliant with the standards. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue also argued that forcing students to have certain ingredients on their plates leads to food waste because children are forced to take food they will not consume.

There’s a whole heck of a lot to unpack regarding the death of Minnesota man George Floyd and former police officer Derek Chauvin. Let’s just get right to the latest news. From Daily Wire: On Friday, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner issued a report saying a preliminary autopsy showed no evidence that George Floyd died of strangulation and traumatic asphyxia. Floyd’s arrest was captured on video and went viral earlier this week. During the incident, at least one officer is seen kneeling on the 46-year-old’s neck while Floyd repeatedly tells him he can’t breath. Floyd died soon following the arrest.

Violent rioters reportedly stormed a police precinct in New York City on Friday and lit law enforcement vehicles on fire.

Not cool, Lori.

When Republicans in office disagreed with Barack Obama, at least the vast majority did so in a professional manner. The same cannot be said about Democrats in the era of Trump. Enter the far-left mayor of Chicago, via Fox News: Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot blasted President Trump and invoked an expletive Friday in response to his tweet after three days of protests in Minneapolis, Minn., when he called the protesters “THUGS” and tweeted that “when the looting starts, the shooting starts.” Lightfoot said, “Donald Trump’s comment last night was profoundly dangerous. And we must stand firm in solidarity and say this is totally unacceptable no matter who is the speaker.” She added, “He wants to show failures on the part of Democratic local leaders, to throw red meat to his base. His goal is to polarize, to destabilize local government and inflame racist urges. We can absolutely not let him prevail. And I will code what I really want to say to Donald Trump. It’s two words. It begins with F and it ends with U.” Here’s a screenshot of Trump’s tweets: And here’s what Twitter decided to do with those tweets: A Lightfoot tweet: https://twitter.com/chicagosmayor/status/1244762897743351808?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1244762897743351808&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fchicago.suntimes.com%2Fcity-hall%2F2020%2F4%2F6%2F21211314%2Fgetting-roots-done-not-essential-getting-hair-cut-mayor-lightfoot VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ah7xQHo9WOQ
