No kidding. This is going to cost us over 20 million at a minimum.

BTW, when she leads, why do I picture the front mule in a mule team?

Here she is leading all her Democrat friends and family on another tax payer paid 5 star vacation to see the Olympics!

If it is tradition then I have no problem with it. It would actually be the first time in 4 years she did her job.

But we all know Michelle hated “HATED it (being first lady), it is hell” doing her job first time evah.
