Ilhan Omar compares childhood hunger in America to a refugee camp in Africa

Rep. Ilhan Omar compared childhood hunger in America to what she “experienced in a refugee camp in Kenya”:

Where the eff is she going with this?

As far as we can tell, she’s quoting from this USDA study which is quite clearly not the same as living in a refugee camp:

More than 11 million children in the United States live in “food insecure” homes, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). That means those families don’t have enough food for every family member to lead a healthy life. This doesn’t always mean that there is nothing to eat. But it can mean that children get smaller portions than they need, or parents aren’t able to afford nutritious foods.

For a more comprehensive understanding of food insecurity, we recommend the USDA’s annual report on Household Food Security in the United States.

And regarding school lunches, why is this not something that should be done at the state level? Why does it have to be a federal program?

This also ignores a very real health problem in America, which is the opposite of what you’d find in an African refugee camp:

And people are mad at the Trump administration for actually giving kids the food they’ll eat in school:

“This is the nutritional equivalent of child abuse”? Feeding your kid pizza and potatoes is child abuse? They’ve lost it.
