Michelle Obama Destroys Cupcake Fundraiser For WWII Veterans

Michelle Obama is up to her old tricks this week as she stops a bake sale for WWII veterans in its tracks. The students at Waccamaw Middle School in Pawleys Island, South Carolina spent the spring baking and selling cupcakes so that they could raise money for veterans.

They raised $2500 in just three weeks and all the money went to WWII veterans. The children want to do it again this year, but thanks to Michelle Obama that isn’t going to happen.

According to The Daily Caller, the new Smart Snacks standards in Michelle’s Hunger-Free Kids Act makes bake sales such as this impossible. The new policies limit the amount of sugar, fat and sodium of any type of food that is sold in taxpayer-funded schools. Snacks from home must now contain fewer than 200 calories, which pretty much destroys a bake sale of any kind.

The students at Waccanmaw are upset and confused about why the First Lady is ruining their charity work. “It’s definitely going to hurt fundraising,” said principal Tim Callahan.

“It’s going to be devastating,” adds superintendent Randy Dozier.

The school leaders are still hopeful that they will be able to find a way around the First Lady’s ridiculous rules, but it isn’t looking good. If I know Michelle Obama, she’ll stop at nothing until these kids are as miserable as possible.

Sheesh, next think you know, she’ll be making these kids sell carrots instead of cupcakes…
