Michelle Obama acting like entitled royalty on Camera does not fit the Current Democrat Current Truth about demonizing successful people.
Therefore, no media coverage will be done, for fear of losing their cushy media jobs, should they dare to say the wrong thing, in print, or on air.
How much is this costing us? And, the Obama’s are going to Martha’s Vineyard in August. So far 4 vacations this year and we are only half way through the third month of the year.
Eat your peas.
Your highness, you’re traveling on our dime, so we’re entitled to come along for the ride.
- One of B Hussein Obama’s half-brothers lives in Commie China ...
So she can pig-out at the all-you-can-eat buffets.......................
Taxpayer funded lavish vacations for the family!
Maybe one reporter will find two nickels and shadow the witch.
A couple of effing grifters the likes of which MTV’s Cribs has never seen.
“Michelle Obamas trip to China starting on Wednesday will be nonpolitical...”
Everything these mouth-breathers do has political implications.
In other words, a vacation.
Can’t even eat our peas, moooooochele ate all of those also. She didn’t buy them , grow them, shop for them, pick them, cook them or serve them she just ate them at the tax payers expense.
maybe she and the kids are fleeing the country
A) Shouldn't ALL her trips be non-political? She's not an elected official.
B) Oh. Well. If the White House says it.....then it must be a lie.
more like a come to Jesus meeting with our overlords, except they don’t believe in Jesus.
Think maybe she is planning to defect?
Gross!!!! What a pig. She wasn’t taught table manners.
