The Era of Hope & Change is almost over, but it’s not too late for yet another of its trademark executive orders. The Bitter Half wants one that will secure her most lasting legacy — the White House garden:
The first lady has already taken steps to preserve her fruitful green space, purchasing a stone plaque for it with the inscription, “WHITE HOUSE KITCHEN GARDEN established in 2009 by First Lady Michelle Obama with the hope of growing a healthier nation for our children.”
But she’s not stopping there — wielding the power she has over the president to ensure the Kitchen Garden is a permanent part of the White House.
“She is pressing him to pass an executive order to maintain the garden after they leave the White House,” a source told The Post.
Executive orders are such a convenient means of bypassing the Legislative Branch that Obama has signed well over 200 of them. But there is a drawback; the next president can rescind them effortlessly, as Trump is expected to do. When Michelle O. finds out, she will look as doleful as this crew.
