like flush ever ever ever knew hunger

More reaction to Limbaugh's child hunger joke

As if Limbaugh would have any idea about poverty or hunger. Of course he's saying these comments to provoke reaction but it doesn't mean he shouldn't be called out for it. Better still, his vocal supporters in Congress and beyond ought to be asked if they agree with his remarks.

More from James Weill, President of the Food Research and Action Center on the HuffingtonPost.com:When schools close their doors for the summer, millions of low-income children lose access to school meals. Hunger spikes in the summer months, and so does childhood obesity when kids don't get healthy school breakfast and lunch. It's likely that this summer will even be worse for families still reeling from the recession. Fortunately, there are programs that exist that help many -- but not enough low-income children get healthy lunches when school is out.

In his comments, Rush Limbaugh suggests that children instead should seek cheap fast food or dumpster-dive to stave off hunger in the summer..............
