First Lady sported her usual J.Crew cardigan, a pair of utilitarian capri pants and, on her feet, a sneaky splurge: trainers that go for $540.

I've been upset with Obama for months because he doesn't spend our money as carefully as they would spend their own money. I was wrong. They spend our tax dollars exactly as carelessly as they spend their own money. They are disgusting beyond words.

Even if I could afford $540 sneakers for the entire family, I'd rather get ordinary shoes and give the difference to my church, to my favorite charity to help sick children, or to anything useful. I don't do conspicuous consumption, while the Obamas don't do anything else.

I think it shows a lack of common sense and a total disregard for how she is perceived by the “people”. This couple is disgusting.
