Rush Limbaugh targets Michelle Obama’s dietFebruary 22nd, 2011 - 9:15 pm ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
Washington DC, Feb 22 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Michelle Obama’s anti-child obesity campaign has got another critic. Sarah Palin was amongst the first group that criticized the campaign when she claimed that parents should be given the freedom to raise their children in the way they see fit.
Rush Limbaugh though is attacking the campaign from another point. He believes that the first lady should practice what she preaches. Rush expressed those comments after it emerged that the First Lady had ribs at a restaurant in Colorado.
The report got Rush to say, “The problem is, and dare I say this, it doesn’t look like Michelle Obama follows her own nutritionary, dietary advice. And then we hear that she’s out eating ribs at 1,500 calories a serving with 141 grams of fat per serving.”
The report of the First Lady’s meal at the Restaurant Kelly Liken was broken by Vail Daily. The newspaper later seemed to have changed their tone when they updated their report. The updated report claimed that Michelle on Saturday was not eating just any ribs but braised ribs. According to the newspaper that type is far better and healthier to eat.
Michelle Obama was on skiing holiday in Colorado during the Presidents Day weekend last week.
