The Obamas really enjoyed travelling over the last eight years. Sometimes they even flew to the same destination in separate planes.
The left is already complaining about the cost of Trump’s travel but he doesn’t hold a candle to the Obamas.

Judicial Watch: Obama Travel Cost Taxpayers Nearly $100 Million
Based on Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests of the Secret Service and the Air Force, the government watchdog Judicial Watch reported this week that the cost of President Obama’s family travel during his eight years as president totaled $99,714,527, nearly $100 million.
Some of the new information obtained by Judicial Watch reveals that a March 2014 family trip to Key Largo during spring break cost $1,133,510. The Obamas stayed at the exclusive Ocean Reef Club and the costs for the Secret Service were: $182,120 for hotels and $65,707 in travel expenses. Flights costs were $885,683.
In addition, Michelle Obama’s February 2015 Aspen vacation cost a total of $121,876. Hotels for Secret Service cost $47,109 and rental cars and other travel expenses were, respectively, $3,559 and $14,138.
For the Obamas’ family Christmas trip to Honolulu (2016-17), the total flight costs were $2,548,602.
Judicial Watch also announced that it has filed a lawsuit in federal court seeking records on former President Obama’s travel and activities from Jan. 21, 2017 through March 21, 2017.
No one on the left ever said a word about this while Obama was president but for some strange reason, it’s a big problem now.
