While on her diplomatic visit to China, Michelle Obama, her mother and her two daughters are staying in an $8,000 a night suite.
I know, it is diplomatic, blah, blah. I know, all presidents cost money, yada, yada.
But, no other president has gone around the country saying that we all need to "sacrifice" for a better world. Then, he hops on a jet and flies to Hawaii for two weeks.
No other president has travelled from sea to shining sea preaching about the horrors of income inequality and then his wife spends $8,000 a night at a hotel in China.
Talk about unequal - $8,000 could pay rent for about A YEAR in most parts of this country.
And, what is worse, the first mother-in-law is barking orders at staff and making a nuisance of herself. I know that Michelle isn't proud of her country (that foots the bill for her extravagant trips, clothes and food) but, I am. I want my country to be well represented here and abroad. I don't want people to see "diplomats" from our country acting in such an undiplomatic way.
As if that weren't enough, Michelle has refused to do any interviews with the press. Why? Normally, when First Ladies travel and the entire bill is paid by tax payers, she then has an obligation to do interviews to let the people WHO PAID FOR THE TRIP know what she is doing.
Typically, when a president (or First Lady) doesn't want to give interviews on a trip, he or she should pay a portion of the bill for the trip.
That sounds like having your cake and eating it, too.
But, that "let them eat cake" mentality is exactly how the Obama's have acted since stepping foot into office. Right, Marie? I mean, Michelle.
People are struggling to put food on the table because of the enormous tax of Obamcare that has been dumped on us. People are having to choose if their kids can go to summer camp of if they are going to pay their health insurance premiums.
Meanwhile, the Obamas live the high life, on our dime, while telling us that we are racist, don't pay enough taxes and (for those of us who are successful) we should be ashamed, we have too much. So, they will redistribute it for us.
But, what about them?
