EXCLUSIVE: MICHELLE WALKS OUT AS OBAMA DIVORCE BATTLE EXPLODES! (taxpayer funded trips)
The National Enquirer ^ | April 1, 2014 | Steve Herz

Posted on 04/01/2014 7:47:26 PM PDT by Mount Athos

IN a major behind-the-scenes blowout, President BARACK OBAMA and first lady MICHELLE waged their worst White House fight ever over her lavish vacation trip to China!

Sources tell The ENQUIRER that Obama exploded when Mi­chelle refused to cancel her pricey getaway – even after White House advisers warned him that the first couple’s six-year string of extravagant vacations had already drained the U.S. Trea­sury of a whopping $150 million in tax­payers’ money.

Michelle arrived in Beijing with her mother, Marian Robinson, and the Obamas’ daughters, 15-year-old Malia and Sasha, 12, on March 20 for a planned seven-day, three-city trip.

They checked into the lavish presidential suite at the Beijing Wes­tin hotel, costing a whopping $8,350 per night.

One published report quoted hotel employees grumbling about Michelle’s mom “barking at the staff ” and added that the first lady’s party was “inconveniencing pretty much everyone.”

Besides the family’s annual Au­gust vacation on ritzy Martha’s Vineyard and Christmas holiday in Hawaii, Michelle jetted off to Mexico and Spain in 2010, and kicked up her heels at a posh ski resort in Vail, Colo., in 2011.

In March 2011, she spent five days in Latin America with her mother and daughters. Three months later, they were joined by Michelle’s niece and nephew for a safari in South Africa.

In June 2013, the first lady spent two days in Ireland. That trip re­quired booking 30 rooms at an exclusive hotel for her staff and security detail, costing taxpayers a reported $5 million.

“Michelle does whatever she wants and goes wherever she wants. It’s as if she’s tacked up a map of the world and put pins on all the places she wants to visit. The sad part is that taxpayers are paying for her bucket list.”

Somehow, I doubt he cared a bit about the cost of her trip. This is BS.

People scoff at the Enquierer, but aside from Drudge and FR, for MONTHS they were the only one that would touch the Monica story with a 10-foot pole.

They kept it up, too.

My very deep scorn changed, then, and I scorn them considerably less than the MSM, or maybe even Russian sources.

Well, although the press ignores it, the Clintons have no interest in seeing each other. But they aren’t about to get a divorce, because that would throw a spoke in their wheels.

Same with the Obamas. They aren’t about to get divorced, when it would put a spoke in their extravagant spending and their press adulation, and maybe even raise a few questions about their sexual orientations.

I’m sure they’re both mad as hell at each other, but they’re not about to do anything that would interfere with their self gratification.

Divorce? No.

You’d think the “first black president” wouldn’t perpetuate the stereotype of blacks on the dole.

Of course he’s only the 2nd black president because all the “black leaders” in 1992 told me Clinton was the first.

And Barack is only half black. So after the first woman (Hillary who’s crowning was supposed to be in 2008) do we go for a full black gay whatever next?

My bingo card is getting confusing.

Not even then, the moose has political ambitions of her own, perhaps a senate seat from Hawaii, knowing very well that she could never beat the Hillarybeast in 2016.

National Enquirer has broken some heavy stuff before. Besides, these days the MSM is such a joke, it has the same level of reliability.

I’m not writing it off as impossible.

You may mean John Edwards, but in any case, when you look at the credibility of the Lamestream Media nowadays, the Enquirer fares pretty well.

Anyone who doubts the FLOTUS is one self-absorbed narcissistic and anti-American bee-word just hasn’t been paying attention.

The National Enquirer has long been fairly accurate when it came to political shenanigans.

They are the ones that torpedoed John Edwards presidential aspirations.

The only problem there, with the clock being right twice a day — is that you don’t know WHICH STORY that applies to until AFTER THE FACT and when it becomes obvious in the regular news. Until then - it could be a flying saucer story, or a pregnant woman giving birth to a cow at age 90 ... :-) ...

And when you “know it’s true” by other sources - you find out you never needed the National Enquirer in the first place.

In other words ... they’re totally useless.

Monica Lewinski. Obama birthing issue. John Edwards. Obama’s gay past. Michelle’s extravagant vacations.

Yep. Just luck and all covered by National Enquirer.

It couldn’t be because the National Enquirer is surprisingly well connected politically speaking and is willing to pay good bucks to get good sources. Nope, just luck.

If the MSM were willing to investigate, you might be correct. Unfortunately, they are not, and the National Enquirer keeps even the low information voter somewhat informed, so its not totally useless.

They also said that George and Laura Bush were getting divorced, they missed on that one.

Michelle, like Hillary, has higher ambitions once she’s out of the White House, they’ll never divorce.

Obama may have exploded at Michelle, but it wasn’t because she was spending too much money on vacations.

“Divorce? No.”

I hear ya but don’t you think that bill and hill are a
little more stable and rational than the obamas? I know
that doesn’t say much.
I think If the ships was about to sink, the mooch would be
the first to bail on berry. And the thing to do would be
to live it up while she can.
