You have to hand it to Michelle Obama, she really has gotten as much enjoyment for herself and her family as possible while she was the first lady.
Since her ride on the publicly financed gravy train is coming to an end in a matter of months, she’s squeezing in as much taxpayer funded travel as she can.
The Washington Examiner provides a cost rundown of her latest jaunt and it wasn’t cheap:
Michelle Obama: 3 hotels, 2 nights in Morocco, $483,183
First lady Michelle Obama’s family trip to Africa, Spain and Morocco to promote her “Let Girls Learn” initiative, and cut a CNN documentary on the effort, has already crossed the $1 million mark with many more expenses still to be tabulated.
According to the bills that have already come in, Obama, accompanied by an entourage that includes her mom and daughters, has spent about $1.06 million: $512,737 for hotels and $252,471 for limos and transportation. Airfare alone is expected to be about $302,500, according to the hourly flight rate recently provided to Judicial Watch.
The bills on USASPENDING.gov. are still coming in. Among those already there:
— $483,183 for hotels in Morocco, including $393,500 for the posh Sofitel, $60,073 for rooms in the Royal Mansour and $24,934 in the Pearl Hotel.
— $29,554 so far for hotels in Madrid. Other bills are expected.
— $129,139 for cars in Morocco.
— $123,332 for cars in Madrid, including $8,743 for a van.
The group flew to Liberia Monday, to Morocco Monday night for two nights, and was in Madrid two nights before returning home on Friday.
The Obamas are massive hypocrites.
They’ve spent years claiming they’re fighting for the middle class while they’ve lived like royalty at the expense of average, hard working American taxpayers.
When was the last time you took a vacation?
November can’t come soon enough.
