Political talk show host (and veg friendly) Bill Maher, stood up for Michelle Obama’s childhood obesity plan last week telling haters they should stop opposing things that are unpartisan and positive for today’s youth. Michelle and her team have come under fire from conservatives that say encouraging kids to eat more fruits and vegetables and exercise is “limiting personal freedom of choice.”
Maher told it straight:
"If you think Michelle Obama is after your freedom because she merely suggests that our kids should exercise more and eat a little broccoli with their lard, you don’t deserve a place in the free market of ideas. You belong at the Cheesecake Factory."
Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move campaign is a positive step toward raising healthier kids. I’m not sure why anyone would be against eating better and exercising more. Kudos to Bill Maher for laying the smackdown. Michelle, I love you.
