Well, we all knew this was coming sooner or later. Michelle Obama is busted by a criminal court case, which says $65,000 dollars is missing from a taxpayer account for which she was directly responsible, and what is really pathetic is that this involves kids in Los Angeles County. Michelle Obama is laying low, hoping this will go away, and you guessed it, the liberal media is refusing to say a word.
Who can forget the nightmare lunch program Michelle Obama inflicted on our kids? Parents across the country were outraged with the slop their kids were mandated to eat. Some parents, who decided to pack lunches for their kids, were even hauled into school by leftist principals who bashed every item the parents packed.
Luckily, President Donald Trump trashed the ridiculous program, and Michelle was livid, bashing Trump for not “wanting kids to eat healthily.” Now, a criminal case involving Michelle’s pick to head the program has just been heard, and David Binkle was just indicted. Binkle is a close friend of Michelle who worked with her to set up the federal lunch program, and she gave him authority to oversee the taxpayer accounts in Los Angeles County.
Binkle allegedly stole $65,000 from the school lunch program to fund his private culinary consulting firm and a personal bank account. Los Angeles Times reports, “[A]s he was revolutionizing meals for the district’s students, prosecutors allege, Binkle illegally funneled roughly $65,000 of the district’s money into a private consulting firm he ran, then placed some of that money into his own pocket.”
Binkle, who is a chef by training, was the head guy to oversee the nearly 700,000 meals per day served to students in L.A. He was paid an annual salary of $152,000, and you can thank Michelle Obama for squandering that money, too. He was featured on the former first lady’s blog on the WhiteHouse.gov website. Of course, Michelle couldn’t be reached for comment; she’s probably very busy vacationing with billionaires on a private yacht in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, but I digress.
Here’s what Binkle wrote on Michelle’s “Let’s Move” website: “The city of Los Angeles is known all around the world for Hollywood, Beverly Hills, celebrities as well as glitz and glamour. There are more than 125,000 millionaires and more than 20 billionaires in this city I now call home. But the reality is there is still a big discrepancy in quality of life between the elite and the majority of students I serve as food services director at Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), the second largest school district in the country.”
Binkle said kids in Los Angeles were living in “food deserts” and praised the healthy meal initiatives he implemented that went beyond Mrs. Obama’s 2010 school lunch program. So, where’s the liberal media? Shouldn’t they be reporting this to the snowflakes who get incensed over any small transgression by the Trumps? Children were the victims here, as well as American taxpayers, so where is the outrage from the left?
Here’s a tweet from 2014 from the LAUSD. It praises David Binkle and features a YouTube Michelle made doing the same:

Michelle Obama had to know about David Binkle back in 2011, and instead of correcting the problem, she got the whistleblower laid off. “George Beck, a former food-services deputy branch director responsible for accounting and budgets, previously told The Times he began questioning Binkle’s management of the marketing program as early as 2011. The district took no corrective action however, according to Beck, who says he was laid off in retaliation two years later,” Los Angeles Times reports.
Although we can’t prove Michelle Obama knew about the whistleblower, George Beck, the chances are she did. This was her baby, and it makes sense that Beck’s accusations would be brought to her attention, and she’d have to admit what was going on. Instead, Binkle’s actions are swept under the rug, and we know Beck got laid off, which he says was in “retaliation.”
You can forget about the liberal mainstream news agencies touching this story and giving it the coverage they should. That would sully Michelle Obama’s biggest contribution to Americans while she was the first lady. They’d have to admit she is responsible for David Binkle’s crimes, and that’s never going to happen. It would be the final nail in the coffin of her Let’s Move/School Lunch program’s good press and put a black mark on the Obama legacy.
