Michelle Obama’s Crap Sandwich

Why was Michelle Obama so angry at Donald Trump last week? Her dander is up for the same reason her husband’s is—Trump is systematically chipping away at their “legacy.” Speaking at a health conference last week, Mrs. Obama expressed horror at Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue’s announcement that his department would be easing regulations
