Michelle and President Obama continue to take advantage of taxpayers by excessive travel expenditures as president and first lady.
Recently, the president and Mrs. Obama took separate government-operated flights to California on the same day. Neither trip could be justified as essential government travel, especially in the case of the first lady, who is not a government employee. But one would also be hard-pressed to rationalize the president’s trip since it, like his wife’s, was made for the purpose of appearing on a TV entertainment program.
Michelle Obama traveled to the Left Coast to tape a segment on the “Ellen DeGeneres Show” that will air next week. Time released a clip of the program showing Michelle dancing with a small group to “Uptown Funk.”
The president used Air Force One to fly to California so he could appear on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” His appearance included a segment where he read aloud mean Tweets about him and discussed the recent shooting of two police officers in Ferguson, Mo.
On her Fox News Channel program, Greta Van Susteren appropriately slammed the Obamas for this wasteful and self-indulgent extravagance.
Every American should be appalled at the arrogance of the Obamas living large at our expense. Read my earlier post about the travel costs for the Obama’s Hawaii vacations.
