Posted on 03/19/2014 6:17:34 AM PDT by don-o
First Lady Michelle Obama will be accompanied by her children and her mother on her trip to China, which begins today. But she won't be accompanied by the press.
"Michelle Obamas trip to China starting on Wednesday will be nonpolitical, the White House says, a 'people-to-people exchange' emphasizing the importance that both nations place on education. As if to underscore the point, no reporters are traveling with the first lady, and she does not plan to give interviews while there," reports the New York Times.
The White House is defending the first lady bringing her family along for the ride by saying it's what the Chinese would want. "Tina Tchen, Mrs. Obamas chief of staff and a first-generation Chinese-American, said a multigenerational visit would be appreciated by the Chinese, who value tradition," says the Times.
But in America, the trip is not without controversy. "Mrs. Obama is drawing scrutiny for her decision to travel with her mother and her two daughters, who are on spring break, bringing to mind a vacation she took to Spain in 2010 with her daughter Sasha and some friends.

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.
She loves the perks but hates the responsibility of being first lady. Come to think of it, her husband, the “resident” feels exactly the same.
I will assume there are a couple of meetings planned that would be “difficult” to “explain”.
Preparing cash flow for post 2016.
Mine too, the thoughts of my mind are not even fit for my own eyes and ears.
Self censorship is better!
Seriously? One-child policy... infantacide... forced abortions... THAT kind of "tradition"?
If the White House said that Michelle’s trip isn’t political... then we must assume that it IS political. Perhaps someone in her entourage will be meeting to discuss the Russian and Chinese agreement over Crimea. We can’t afford to irritate the Chinese too badly, since they’re holding a good portion of our debt.
Doesn't matter what she does. The 0 supporters are true believers in the divine right of blacks to be the wisest and smartest of all people (a role concieved in Hollywood and frequently played by Morgan Freeman, but not extant in the real world) and for a true believer, no proof is necessary and no disproof possible.
She’s our ambASSador.......what a HORRIBLE joke they ALL are....and I mean ALL of them, kids included.....SURLY.
They seem to be getting even more arrogant about their vacations.
It’s like the city council of Detroit is in charge of the USA.
We see the obama golf counter, how about someone doing a obama vacation counter with complete cost per vacation? I looked but resources online are kinda thin, lots of 404 censorship, maybe.
planes have been known to go missing in Asia
Its a working vacation. :-) snicker
How are her daughters going to graduate to the next grade while missing so much school?
Why would reporters be needed on a royal vacation trip?
If, as I assume, the taxpayers are footing the bill for her travel, expenses, and security, the media has the right to cover the story.
Is the lizard in chief going to china as well... Could be cover for the gal who is running the country...
Easier to slip the Chi-coms our secrets that way.
We are entitled to see the bills we are paying and WHAT we are getting for our money. “Most transparent Administration in History, my ARSE”.
Barry's got his own vay-cay planned this month. He's supposed to be going to Saudi Arabia after first visiting the Netherlands, Belgium and Italy (visit with the Pope).
How do these kids keep getting out of school?
See? - the obama’s really ARE cutting back on their vacation spending!!!
The daughters just had a week skiing in Aspen with Michelle. How many spring vacays do they get?
Michelle is the first to gormandize.
As many as they can get the American public to pay for.

I meant Valerie Jarrett.... Is she slithering to china hiding behind Moochelle’s ample posterior?
Wonder what information she pass on to the Chinese?.
no press but many WH photographers with manipulated propaganda shoots having little to do with truth.
Reporters might accidental get in the way of bringing both planes back.
They can’t ban the foreign press? Right?
‘He’ has been placated ‘his’ entire life. The efforts have had little effect. ‘His’ hatred of all that is good cannot be overcome.
