After looking at the pictures I have yet to see any where the children actually look happy at their VIP status and multimillion Dollar vacations. They seem permanently ‘put out’.

This isn’t just directed to the President’s daughters but quite a few young girls that dress inappropriately for the occasion at hand. Their skirts were terribly short and the eldest daughter had an exposed midriff in several photos. They just looked too informal for a diplomatic visit.

What is it with these 40-50 year old women who want to stay teenagers ..??

I feel sorry for Michelle .. that she has never learned how to be herself; gracefully.

I feel sorry for the kids. Can’t be easy for girls that age living in a fish bowl.

But I’m sure they will look back at this trip someday with fond memories.

Just wish I could have sent MY kids on a trip like that.
