As the investigation of Hillary Clinton and her private email scandal is winding down, it’s just been discovered that Michelle Obama may have been involved in an email scandal of her own.

Scientists inside out of the CDC concluded that “Let’s Move” which began in 2010 played no role in the decline in childhood obesity rates.
