Barack and Michelle Obama have lived very large during his eight years as president. And they’ve taken plenty of vacations, sometimes together, sometimes separately.
The cost for all those vacations has now passed $85 million dollars.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Obama family travel, vacations, cross $85 million mark
The first family has spent over $10 million a year on travel and vacations, and the still growing bill has crossed over $85 million in eight years, according to a watchdog group.
Judicial Watch, which has charted the travel of presidents for years, on Monday said that it has received a new batch of bills for the first family’s Christmas break in Hawaii, bringing that trip to nearly $5 million. The Obama’s are expected to return to Hawaii this Christmas.
The expenses cover items such as security, flights and hotel rooms for staff and U.S. Secret Service. They do not include the price of prepositioning ships and aircraft in the area or much of the communications costs.
When the left begins complaining about the Trumps living large in the presidency (and you know they will) keep this report handy.
The Obama’s didn’t deny themselves anything while they were living in the White House.
They lived large and seemed to enjoy every minute of it.
