Michelle Obama seems to be a bit of a vacation junkie, and we – according to this story from the London Daily Mail, sourced from the Enquirer – are paying for it:
White House sources today claimed that the First Lady has spent $10million of U.S. taxpayers’ money on vacations alone in the past year.
Branding her ‘disgusting’ and ‘a vacation junkie’, they say the 47-year-old mother-of-two has been indulging in five-star hotels, where she splashes out on expensive massages and alcohol.
The ‘top source’ told the National Enquirer: ‘It’s disgusting. Michelle is taking advantage of her privileged position while the most hardworking Americans can barely afford a week or two off work.
‘When it’s all added up, she’s spent more than $10million in taxpayers’ money on her vacations.’
Now, it’s a fact that travelling for the First Family, with all its security, is not going to be cheap under any circumstances. Still – taking separate goverment jets to Martha’s Vineyard? Really?
Of course, Atomizer will perk up at this reference:
The source continued: ‘Michelle also enjoys drinking expensive booze during her trips. She favours martinis with top-shelf vodka and has a taste for rich sparking wines.
I’ll paraphrase him; “there’s no such thing as a vodka martini”. There. (And I wanna try a “sparking wine”. Just saying). Don’t say I never did anything for ya, Atom.
And I had to mention this; it’s a photo from Mrs. Obama’s trip earlier this year to Spain:
Can there be anything in the world more awkward than a Secret Service agent trying to look “casual?” And the guy to the immediate left of Mrs.Obama (her right) – when did Peter Garrett join the White House staff?
