Michelle Obama, who last week decried the country as “hopeless” under a Donald Trump presidency, better hope the incoming administration doesn’t make her reimburse U.S. taxpayers for fleecing them during her numerous international personal junkets.
No First Lady has abused her position more than spendthrift Michelle, who has made over 40 personal trips to international and exotic locales while masquerading as a diplomat or White House envoy on official U.S. business.
No example highlights the First Lady’s penchant for abusing her unelected position more than Mrs. Obama’s trip to Africa to supposedly educate African girls that they too can achieve greatness in life if they stay in school and dream big. While that rhetoric was perhaps great motivation for hungry children living in ramshackle dwellings with dirt floors and no plumbing, Michelle should have simply showed the youngsters the invoice for the trip to really drive home the point of dreaming big, especially for an unemployed disbarred lawyer. One is left to wonder whether the First Lady criticized the school lunches of the African children too as unhealthy.
According to an Air Force flight passenger manifest for the multi-million dollar trip, which included multiple days of sightseeing and a family safari, Michelle listed her daughters as “Senior Staff.” White House officials told True Pundit that as senior staff on an official diplomatic trip, Sasha and Malia could have also been paid a daily stipend in addition to the free flight, lodging, meals, sight seeing and safari.
Beats the heck out of shelling out an allowance to the Obama girls.
Meanwhile, the First Lady also stacked the flights and trip with her mother, Marian Robinson and Leslie and Avery Robinson, her niece and nephew. Michelle also brought her makeup artist Carl Ray and hairstylist Johnny Wright — listing them as guests — according to the unclassified Air Force C-32 (Boeing 757) manifest.
Passenger flight manifests for Michelle Obama’s international travel are largely secret and unreleased. Now we understand exactly why they are so well guarded. How many more times did Michelle Obama list her daughters as Senior Staff and pack her junkets with personal friends and relatives? How much money were the Obama daughters paid to travel on U.S. taxpayers? Who else was paid?
We asked. The White House isn’t answering.
