Come on, Sarah — making fun of the First Lady for endorsing breastfeeding has to be your dumbest dig ever!

You took a new shot at Michelle Obama while speaking at Long Island country club. Here’s what you said — “it’s no wonder Michelle Obama is telling everybody you need to breastfeed your babies… the price of milk is so high”!

The Mama Grizzly was reacting to Michelle Obama publicly pointing out recently that “kids who are breastfed longer have a lower tendency to be obese.”

Sarah, you’re a mom of five yourself, you should understand the merits of breastfeeding — it’s been documented in numerous studies.  Breastfed babies  have a lower risk of dying in their first year of life, they have improved cognitive development AND they have less risk of growing up obese, according to a large study by the National Institute of Environmental Health Services . Why would you chose to make fun of such a health benefit for babies, just to poke the President’s wife?

It was bad enough that you casually slammed the First Lady’s war against obesity on your TLC reality show, Sarah Palin’s Alaska! You mocked Michelle for discouraging dessert, when you made s’mores for your family.

It really is strange Sarah, that you can be a health devotee yourself who jogs daily, but you make light of the huge issue of childhood obesity and the huge benefits of breastfeeding!

Sarah, get over the Obamas. Don’t let your obsession with Michelle get in the way of what’s best for babies and children!
