During her visit to China, first lady Michelle Obama pointed out that the ability to travel outside of the United States was "rare" but that she chose China for a reason.

"It’s very rare that I have the opportunity to travel outside of the United States, and it’s even more rare to have the opportunity to travel with three generations — with my daughters, and with my mother," she said. "And it is no accident that one of our first trips as a family is here to China."

Obama made her remarks while visiting a school in Beijing, with the Chinese first lady, Peng Liyuan.

She probably travels outside the US just as much as I do but the difference is I or the company I’m do work for is paying for mine.

The satire just writes itself these days. Mrs. Great Leader has a much less rare chance of international travel than the unwashed masses who are so undeserving of her heinous.

A grifter. A self-entitled token minority, royal ascendant who probably really believes that if she doesn’t travel abroad once a month that it is “seldom” despite the lavish MTV Cribs boondoggle trips she’s made.

Utterly disgusting.

Someone should ax her if she knows what the word "rare" means. Amnesia maybe? I bet she has been to more countries than she has to states in America.

The liar is so full of crap she stinks..This must be one of the reasons she did not want the American press to travel with her..so she could lie all she wanted and no one would be the wiser..

“White House officials say that because politics won't be a focus on First Lady Michelle Obama’s visit to China, no reporters will be allowed to accompany her on the trip.”

How ‘bout most of the rest of us, no chance to travel outside the country AT ALL?

Do us a favor, Michelle. Find a country in of these travels, and STAY THERE. The territory once known as “the United States of America” isn’t a place you are very much wanted or should feel like “home” to you anyway.

Zimbabwe comes to mind.

No need for us to travel to foreign lands to experience different ways of living.

Obama is bringing it all right here as he turns America into a foreign country.
