First Lady Valerie Trierweiler 'to be kicked out of Elysee Palace ....
The Daily Mail Online ^ | January 11, 2014 | PETER ALLEN IN PARIS

Posted on 01/12/2014 9:06:47 AM PST by Uncle Chip

over partner Francois Hollande's sex scandal with actress 20 years his junior'

France's First Lady Valerie Trierweiler was yesterday facing the prospect of becoming the first in history to be kicked out of the Elysee Palace.

It follows humiliating revelations that her partner, President Francois Hollande, has ‘fallen in love’ with a woman almost 20 years his junior.

Mr Hollande’s relationship with actress Julie Gayet, 41, was exposed by a series of pictures in French Closer magazine which show him travelling to see her on a moped.

But beyond a new romance, opponents claim the scandal exposes publicly funded deceit, security lapses, and the huge cost of a first lady who no longer has any legitimacy.

Mr Hollande, who turns 60 this year, was poised to make a statement to ‘clarify’ the position of 48-year-old divorcee Miss Trierweiler.

She currently has five staff working for her at her office as well as numerous other taxpayer-funded perks, including homes across France, private jets and limousines.

As anger at the scandal grew, politicians suggested Miss Trierweiler’s position was already untenable.

‘Is it normal that she stays at the Elysee on taxpayers’ money while the President has other relationships,’ said MP Daniel Fasquelle. He added: ‘So who is France’s first lady now?’.....

Should get very interesting. They don’t call Ms. Trierwieller “the Rottweiler” for nothing.

Partner? Are they married? I confess that I do not keep up with the French. Maybe the Bubba can offer some advice.

What’s so new or different? It seems to be a requirement that French politicians have extra-marital sex with models and actresses. The higher up the politician, the better looking the choice of concubine they get. It seems so perfectly corrupt and imperial, like ancient Rome or China - where actresses were mostly prostitutes, and if they had enough skills, they could find themselves Empress one day.

Hollande and Trierweiler are not married. I’m not sure if that was a first for France, but there was some chatter about it after Hollande was elected.

France's First Lady currently has five staff working for her as well as numerous taxpayer-funded perks......including homes across France, private jets and limousines.

Only five? First Lady O has 24 staff.....plus perks up the kazoo.

THE OHAHAS LIVE LIKE BILLIONAIRES ON OUR DIME---NRO tallied what taxpayers are paying for the Ohaha's to live large on the taxpayers' dime: a grand total of $1.4 billion per year:

Air Force One ($181,757 per hour), executive chef ($100,000 per year), three full-time White House calligraphers ($277,050 per year for the trio), chief of staff to the president’s dog ($102,000 per year), Ohaha's royal motorcade ($2.2 million). $100 million alone for the African apology tour.

==========================================

$1.4 BILLION is the current annual cost of the White House — just in household expenses, not including US policy operations for which the WH exists-- administered by some 900 parasites--- policy staff recruited by Ohaha.

There's the $100 million trip to Africa not including the foreign aid billions O handed out to these oil-rich satraps. There's serial Ohaha vacations costing taxpayers millions---- (the low estimate Hawaii vacays is $4 million each, but is probably five times that); the pricey Martha's Vineyard stays; Mrs O's costly trip to elite Marbella w/ an entourage of 30.

Mrs O's $3900 PER NIGHT in Ireland PLUS 30 more rooms for her entourage.

Ireland's Grace Kelly hotel suite.

=======================================

TAXPAYERS SUFFERED RUINOUS HEALTHCARE CANCELLATIONS--BUT THEY PAY $7 MILLION FOR THE OBAMAS HEALTHCARE---NRO found the first family’s yearly health-care costs Americans $7 million; the reason why only Boobamba himself was "enrolled" last month --and not his family.

===========================================================

More than $6 million is spent on the White House grounds each year. Transportation costs were a staggering $346 million last year.

The O' kids were flying around to the Bahamas and Sun Valley.....while US kids were shut out of the WH supposedly due to sequestration Secret Service cutbacks. The O's galivanting teen daughter was spotted in NYC---with girlfriends---dining at the pricey Buddakan, scoffing up rock shrimp, edamame dumplings, short ribs, lobster fried rice........replete w/ five Secret Service guards dining nearby, while students her age were denied access to the people's house.

=============================================

Mrs O wore her pricey diamond bangles (bought on a govt salary?) at a DNC fund-raiser, attended by "tolerant and compassionate" Dems....raised big bucks to keep Mr O in office so he could work for "the poor." Her diamond Gothic cuff priced at $15,350 set with 2.17 carats in diamonds and the Quatrefoil bracelet at $11,800 set with 1.73 carats in diamonds. (Excerpt) Read more at houston.culturemap.com.

Mrs O wowed all the "tolerant and compassionate" Dems who hate the rich and support endless tax-paid programs "for the poor."

===============================================

Mrs O has 24 assistants at her beck and call.
Her wardrobe, nails and hair are subsidized w/ US tax dollars.

Seriously? To my eye it’s all about envy and jealously of what they perceive the ‘bourgeoisie’, capitalists and previous emperors and kings had/have.

So they actively seek political power to gain the same things that they publicly decried on their way up the ladder of political success. And once they have the ‘things’ they just can’t help themselves. They have to flaunt them in the faces of everyone to show that they have ‘made it’.

Yes, it’s a character flaw, but nearly every politician in the world has the same one. So in the ‘circle’ it’s considered the norm. To the rest of us, it just one excess after another.

Julie Gayet

The guy is a socialist, so trading in his older model for a younger/hotter/tighter one will be judged no big deal.

-— The guy is a socialist, so trading in his older model for a younger/hotter/tighter one will be judged no big deal. -—

You’re right. That’s what my commie uncle and British labor union boss did. Then he retired with four years of accumulated time and left on a world tour on his yacht.

Great guy.

Also sent his kids to a Polish Young Pioneers camp for their summer vacation, back in the seventies.

My Polish dad literally never set foot in the same room with him. I think he would have killed him.

It sounds like they are more outraged by the first lady’s financial costs to France rather than Hollande’s trist with a younger woman.

The president has record low poll numbers, somewhere around 8%. This might bring him down, but it was his economic policies that did it. This might be the convenient last straw.

She’s 12 years younger than he is, and she’s upset he’s nailing someone 20 years younger? Meh. After all the lectures I got from Frog morons back when BJ Clinton was in trouble for committing Perjury about the BJs from the pudgy little girl (”You Americans are such PRUDES!”), I care not one wit if there is some kind of outrage there.

In fact, I hope it blows up into a Christie-sized scandal. I hope it dominates their news for months. I hope there is much weeping and rending of clothes. I’ll even send them some sack cloth if it will help the cause, because that’s how I roll.

The last thing the US ever needed to do was to become more like Europe, yet that is precisely the model so many liberals have used. European socialism is a miserable failure and has hurt a great many people. That this weenie of a politician is doing this is not in the least surprising. Most Marxists/socialists are narcissists. That’s why they gravitated to those sociopolitical philosophies. I wonder how this will be seen by the growing fundamentalist Islamic population of France..

Before there was Valerie there was Segolene. Not exactly Francois's first wife because they were never married. She was not only his first whatever. She was also the Socialist candidate in the election before he won.
