Let them eat rabbits.

That was basically the message from President Nicolas Maduro to Venezuelans starving and struggling through severe food shortages brought on by a spiraling economic crisis.

Maduro unveiled "Plan Rabbit" on Wednesday with his agriculture minister, Freddy Bernal, at a meeting that was broadcast on Periscope. 

The Venezuelan leaders, who blame President Trump and the United States for Venezuela's economic crisis, recommend that people raise rabbits at home as a source of food.
"The rabbit isn't a pet, it's only two and a half kilos of meat," Bernal said smiling, with a few laughs around him. "Trump's attack against the Venezuelan people is an opportunity to revise and change cultural consumption patterns."
Maduro, grinning, cheered Bernal's talk, adding "The first part of Plan Rabbit moves forward!" He added that some rabbits have already been distributed to a few communities as part of a pilot project.

America's free phones? Saint Ronald Reagan started the Lifeline program in 1984 which was expanded by Bill Clinton in 1996. The first cellular service for the poor was Tracfone, introduced in 2008 by Baby Bush. There are at least twelve federal assistance programs for phones for the poor. Three of these are for Native Americans: TTANF, FDPIR and one for the Bureau of Indian Affairs. I'd say that is the least we can do for the Native Americans. It is sad to think that we still have the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

Do some research on the history. She sounds amazing like the deplorables.
