Physicians Group Asks Michelle Obama To Stop Being Photographed Eating Junk Food

Posted by   + Show Post


(Baltimore Sun) — First Lady Michelle Obama is on a mission to get our kids to eat healthy, but every now and then she is known to indulge on a cheeseburger or other food that is not so good for the body.

A few years ago she made a lunch run with staff to a Five Guys inWashington, D.C.

Well, a physicians group said this is a no-no and wants Michelle Obama and the rest of the first family not to be photographed eating unhealthy foods.

The Physicans Committee for Responsible Medicine said that President Obama has posed in a number of staged photos eating unhealthy foods, including hot dogs at a basketball game with British Prime Minister David Cameron. He and Vice President Joe Biden were spotted making a stop at Ray’s Hell Burger in Virginia and eating cheeseburgers with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev.

The group said Obama’s staff would never schedule a photo opp of the president smoking a cigarette, so why eating a piece of pizza?

The group plans to file a petition later this week asking the White House to issue an executive order banning staged photos of the president, his family the vice president and members of the president’s cabinet eating unhealthy foods.

I am not the one making the claim.

You are.

If you are unable to provide links to sources that state that Michelle Obama pushed legislation (how can she, anyway?) that attempts stop people from eating what they want, or feeding their children what they want, then does your argument really stand up?

Quoting Abaco:

You're a google champion....look it up yourself. Remember the child that brought a packed lunch to school and it was taken away. She was given grease filled chicken nuggets to eat. Her mom had packed a healthy lunch and the food police in the school didn't agree.

Quoting jaxTheMomm:

Where has she done that?

Quoting Abaco:

Whose stopping Michelle from eating what she wants ? It's the other way around......her pushing for legislation on stopping others from eating what they want or for feeding our own children what we do.

Quoting sugarsmom2:

the key here is every once in awhile she eats a cheeseburger or other type of food that someone doesnt agree she should eat . well perhaps they should mind thier own bussinaess . let her eat what she wants . she is a lovely person and has a prefect body . wish i where as fit as she .

Damn girl get a hobby.  This can't possibly be it. 

Unless, of course, you've found the source that tells us how Michelle Obama pushed through legislation that dictactes how we eat.

Otherwise, you must be so bored. Just keep bumping your same old posts up, over and over again, looking for a fight.

That's just sad.
