Michelle "Healthy School" Obama's Shocking Admission: "Who Cares What You're Eating? I Don't Care."

First Lady Michelle Obama, infamous for her much-maligned school lunch program, inadvertently let a tidbit of truth slip out during a panel discussion this week with actress Charlize Theron and others about the important of girls' education.

The Panel Discussion at The Apollo Theater in New York on September 29th included the First Lady, Former Prime Minister of Australia Julia Gillard, Actress Charlize Theron, and 'Nurfahada' the 'Girl Project Ambassador on the Importance of Girls' Education.'

Update: It turns out that Michelle Obama made the exact same comment in August 2014, in a conversation with Laura Bush. These comments might seem like not a big deal, and they wouldn't be, except for the fact that this woman purports to have the best interest of what children eat in government schools nationwide, and dictates what these disgusting meals are comprised of. Kids across the nation have reported that they find these meals vile and revolting, not to mention unhealthy. If someone cares about food, nutrition and health, and if she really cared so much about what kids eat, she wouldn't constantly proclaim that she doesn't care what anyone eats.

USDA.gov notes: "Nutrition Standards for School Meals - Through the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act championed by the First Lady and signed by President Obama, USDA made the first major changes in school meals in 15 years, which will help us raise a healthier generation of children. The new standards align school meals with the latest nutrition science and the real world circumstances of America’s schools. These responsible reforms do what’s right for children’s health in a way that’s achievable in schools across the Nation."

The first lady's comments are posted on the White House website. Excerpts:

MS. LEIVE: And you mentioned the 62 Million Girls campaign, which I know I've seen all over social media for the last few days, and I know you're responsible for that. What are you asking people in this room to do?

MRS. OBAMA: Well, I know you guys got cards and everybody listening in -- we're trying to raise awareness about the plight of these 62 million girls. And again, we want to use this message to inspire our kids here at home to take advantage of their education. So what we are asking everybody to do is to take a photo -- this is where Instagram and tweeting -- I love it, right, because I want you all to be tweeting and Instagramming something other than your shoes and your food, okay? (Laughter.) My kids do the same. I'm like, who cares what you're eating? I don't care. (Laughter.) But we all should care about this.

So you take a photo of yourself, you upload it, and you answer this one question: What I learned in school is blank. And then you send it to everyone you know. And we've got so many people this weekend -- we've got Leo DiCaprio who tweeted it out. I know Charlize is going to do it. Kerry Washington, she's going to do it. We've got everybody -- Beyoncé tweeted out. (Applause.) It's very exciting. So we want you to be a part of it. We're creating a photo album of all the images and the photos and the messages -- why is school important to you? And we're going to spread that all over the country. And go back to your schools and your communities and get everyone you know to do the same thing. We're going to make this go viral. That's something, right? (Applause.)

Here are Michelle's comments from 2014:

MRS. OBAMA: "We do, we do. But when you listen to just the opening speakers, when you think about social media -- I mean, just listening to the hashtags and the Twitter accounts -- I mean, that was a little nutty. (Laughter.) But it’s how you continue the conversation. And globalize it. And young people are just more adept at that. And they can -- as I tease my kids, I tell them I want them to use Instagram to take a picture of something really important rather than their food. (Laughter.) But young people can be a support to us. I mean, no one really cares what you had for lunch. (Laughter.)"

Back to this week, 9/28/15. Obama and Theron also had some interesting remarks about smart girls and how they relate to boys:

MS. LEIVE: I have a related question. I think a lot of girls even in this country sometimes still think that doing well in school will not make them more attractive to boys, or that it will actually make them less attractive. I would like you smart, attractive, wonderful women to respond to that. Is there any truth to that?

MS. THERON: That just enrages me so much. There is nothing sexier than a smart woman. (Applause.) We have been told to live by a certain mold -- women, especially women -- and it's time to break it. And it is up to us to do that. Stop waiting for men to do that. Look in the mirror and see yourself and say, I am sexy. I am attractive. I am smart. I am intelligent. I am powerful. I have a voice. (Applause.) I look cute in these jeans. (Laughter.) Yes, I don't have long hair, I have short hair, but I am still a girl. And I'm still hot. (Laughter.) That's up to us. We have to take ownership in all of that stuff. We can't have boys designate that for us anymore.

MRS. OBAMA: And let's just be clear, you don't want to be with a boy that's too stupid to know -- (applause) -- and appreciate a smart, young lady. And I want to encourage all of us as young women, as older women, we have to raise our own bars. You will not be successful hanging around people who drag you down. And it's not just the boys, right, but it's also our peer group. You have to fill your bucket with positive energy. And if you have people hanging around you that are bringing you down and not lifting you up -- whether that's your boo or your best friend -- you've got to learn how to push these people to the side. And you're going to be doing that for the rest of your lives. So get practice now. You have to clean your house of negative energy. (Applause.) There is no boy at this age that is cute enough or interesting enough to stop you from getting your education. (Applause.) Look, if I had worried about who liked me and who thought I was cute when I was as your age, I wouldn't be married to the President of the United States today. (Applause.)

MS. LEIVE: All right, girls, you got that? You're talking about men and boys. And, first of all, do we have any guys in the audience here? (Applause.)

MRS. OBAMA: Don't be scared. Don't be scared. You're safe. You're safe here.

Michelle then remarked how her husband was gonna try to make everything "free!"
I've visited some of the best community colleges where they have nursing training programs, nursing-aid training programs, rad-tech programs, where kids are studying for two years and they're placed right into a job at a hospital or working in a nursing home. They're training students for jobs that actually exist. And for many kids, they're just not ready for that deep dive into a four-year. They don't want to go away from home necessarily. They are worried about the resources. Here in the United States we've got these this wonderful community college structure -- something that my husband actually is trying to make sure is free for everyone. Hopefully he can do that. (Applause.) But that's a goal.

The former Prime Minister of Australia Julia Gillard then shilled for vaccines:

"The more we educate girls, the more likely it is that she will marry later rather than be forced into an early marriage, have fewer children later in life. Those children will be more likely to survive infanthood, more likely to be vaccinated, more likely to go to schools themselves."
