RUSH: There’s a story on Drudge, the headline here is: “Shock: Michelle O Lunch at School.” So I clicked on the link, and the link is from EAGnews.org, Kyle Olson, founder. PS: I do not know Britt McHenry, he says. He doesn’t say that. I just added that. Kyle Olson is the founder of the Education Action Group in 2007.
There’s a picture. It’s not big enough for me to print with any quality and show you on the Dittocam, but it is yuk. It looks like a yellow lunch tray made out of the stuff that egg cartons are made out of. It may not be. It may be plastic, I don’t know. But it’s an egg yolk yellow that looks like the same material egg cartons are.
It’s got five different areas in the tray where five different foods or whatever could go, and three are empty. It looks like in the upper right-hand corner, like brown rice, or something close to it, ground soybeans, who knows. But the real mystery is what the heck is in the entree section, which is the largest section.
Honestly, folks, it looks like one half of a fish. It looks like I can see the scales or the bones there, with the head still on it and a dark brown something or other on top of it, like an oat bran roll or something. I mean, it’s just yuck-o. You think that’s insect dressing made out of ground beetles and crickets?
Anyway, it’s from Portsmouth, Virginia. He starts the story: “ThatÂ’s not really a fish filet with a whole wheat bun resting on top. Nah, your eyes are playing tricks on you. ThatÂ’s what administrators at VirginiaÂ’s Portsmouth Public Schools want parents to believe after a mother took a photo of her childÂ’s paltry school lunch and posted it on social media. The mom says James Hurst Elementary served the lunch Tuesday.
“After the photo began circulating around the community, Food Service Coordinator Jim Gehlhoff admitted the lunch ‘concerns us,’ but added that it might not actually be as bad as it looks. ‘Poor lighting and food presentation make this lunch unappealing,’ he said in a statement released to the media. He says itÂ’s in compliance with the federal lunch rules championed by First Lady Michelle Obama. ‘The meal in this photo and other meals served by Portsmouth Public Schools meet nutritional and USDA requirements,’ according to the food service coordinator.”
Anyway, so it’s not a fish filet with a whole wheat bun. Well then what is it? This is the most unappetizing looking whatever it is. There’s no way your average, ordinary American school kid’s gonna eat this. They’re gonna make tracks to the nearest vending machine they can find if there is one. (interruption) What, what are you laughing at in there? (interruption) You’re looking at it? Okay, you’re agreeing it’s disgusting? Okay, good. It really is.
This is not the first we’ve heard of this, folks. We’ve heard of kids complaining about school lunches ever since Michelle took this program over, years now. We’ve heard story after story, kids refusing to eat it, and they’ve had to put vending machines in there, or take the lunches out. Even the kids who ate it were not having their hunger sated, it wasn’t nearly enough.
You know, Michelle’s on this health kick, which is typical of all of these cradle-to-grave nanny type liberals. You as a parent do not know what’s best for your kid. You don’t know how to raise your kid right. You certainly do not know how to properly feed your child, and Michelle Obama and the government are going to do it for you and they’re not gonna give you any choice in the matter.
RUSH: For those of you watching the Dittocam, do you see what’s on my computer monitor behind me? That’s an expanded, blown up, zoomed-in photo of the school lunch in question that we were talking about today that’s highlighted on the front page of the Drudge Report.
Now, I just printed that out and I’m gonna show you on the Dittocam here in a minute. I want to move my microphone boom out of the way for just a moment so that you could see what I thought, in a standard resolution photo, looked like brown rice, is actually the ugliest, yuckiest, dry corn I have ever, ever seen. That’s what that is, if you can see it now that I’ve moved.
Now, I’m gonna reach behind me here. I’m gonna grab the thing that I just printed out. This is not gonna be the best, but I don’t have a video switch so I’ve just gotta zoom in to show you. I’m zooming in right now. Okay, turn the Dittocam on. I don’t know what that is. It looks like fish. Your guess is as good as mine. Snake. It looks scaly. It’s gray. Up close with a lot of light that looks like a brown like rye bread roll or something. And that is corn. That is the yuckiest, and that’s it, that’s all that’s on that tray. Nobody would eat this. A homeless person wouldn’t. This wouldn’t be served in a soup kitchen.
This is the Michelle Obama school lunch guidelines responsible for this. It’s just yucko out there. I thought it was rice pilaf or brown rice or what have you, but it’s not. It’s the driest, yuckiest, ugliest corn.
