“The View” co-hosts on Monday debated Michelle Obama slamming the Donald Trump administration for changing school lunch policies she had spearheaded. Check out the video below.

On Friday, the former First Lady questioned why the new president and his team were rolling back guidelines calling for nutritional lunches for students. She asked, “Why don’t you want our kids to have good food at school? What is wrong with you? And why is that a partisan issue?” Kicking off the discussion on the ABC talk show, Whoopi Goldberg asked, “Is this more complicated than just offering healthy food options?”

Joy Behar responded by taking Obama’s lead, and questioning, “What is wrong with them that they give guns to the mentally ill? What is wrong with them that they allow toxins to be dumped in rivers rivers?” To her, changing the lunch food policies was just more evidence that Trump’s administration is “trying to hurt us.”

Countered Jedediah Bila, “This program, though, was flawed.” She said the lunches she saw were not actually “healthy,” explaining, “That was my beef with it. I support her intent.” Sunny Hostin accused her colleague of being unfair, and gave examples of before and after menus. Goldberg, however, pointed out, “It may be a good menu, but as a picky eater, I’m not eating it.”

“Healthy eating is very expensive,” she also noted, going on stress that most important should be that kids can eat, period, regardless of what it is. The moderator even suggested viewers use DonorsChoose to help pay for children’s meals through donations. As the discussion of Obama vs. Trump continued, Goldberg argued, “This program may not have worked well, but there was nothing before it.”

And Hostin demanded of Bila, “Give me a better option.” Bila said that these guidelines have to “come from the local,” not the federal, government. Hostin shot back, “That sounds like ‘I don’t want to get involved.'” Watch the videos below.
