I missed this this weekend, but, it is a bit much to think that Laura Bush had one assistant compared to this list for Michelle Obama. A quick Google search brings up this list of White House staff, including these folks comparable to the Canada Free Press list:

1. McBride, Anita B $172,200 Assistant to the President and Chief of Staff to the First Lady

2. Medina, Sonya E $147,500 Deputy Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy and Director of Projects for the First Lady

3. Zantzinger, Amy S $113,000 Special Assistant to the President and White House Social Secretary

4. Armstrong, Sara W $102,000 Special Assistant to the President and Deputy Chief of Staff to the First Lady

5. Niemiec, Sally M $102,000 Special Assistant to the President and Director of Communications and Press Secretary to the First Lady

6. Miller, Sonja Maria $88,500 Deputy Chief of Staff to the First Lady

7. Ballard, Deanna M $78,400 Director of Scheduling for the First Lady

8. McArthur, Nikki L $63,000 Speech Writer for the First Lady

9. Knutson, Lindsey L $62,700 Special Assistant and Personal Aide to the First Lady

10. Marshall, Misty C $62,400 Director of Correspondence for the First Lady

11. Adams, Julie E $57,500 Deputy Press Secretary to the First Lady

12. Mende, Kirstin M $53,000 Deputy Director of Policy and Projects for the First Lady

13. Etter, Marisa Leigh $52,200 Deputy Director of Scheduling for the First Lady

14. King, Kristin N $52,200 Deputy Director of Advance for the First Lady

15. Thornton, Dorothy M $52,200 Deputy Social Secretary

16. Segura, Millicent $47,000 Deputy Director of Correspondence for the First Lady

17. Miller, Kasdin E $43,000 Assistant Press Secretary to the First Lady

18. O'Connor, Erin M $41,800 Executive Assistant to the Chief of Staff to the First Lady

In addition, there are nine "executive assistants", three "assistant staff secretaries", and thirty-five "staff assistants" lower on the pay list than Ms. O'Connor, so there may be another one-three unattributed positions similar to the last few on the CFP list. Just to be fair, here...

Thanks for the CNN fact check. It pays to reason that this stuff is heavily tilted, in both directions. Cheers!
