The President has always been a semi-level headed guy who appreciates sports and the occasional hot dog – he considers himself such an aficionado that he refuses to put ketchup on them. However, the National Enquirer – same publication that broke the John Edwards lovechild story that clear Obama for a political victory — has been reporting that the First Lady has a taste for the finer things in life. This wouldn’t be a problem if she was spending her own money. But according to reports the First Lady has been scandalously bingeing on vacations while the rest of us watch our retirement go down the tubes. Even more shocking is that the President is furious with his wife but she just won’t stop!
From the Daily Mail
White House sources today claimed that the First Lady has spent $10million of U.S. taxpayers’ money on vacations alone in the past year.
Branding her ‘disgusting’ and ‘a vacation junkie’, they say the 47-year-old mother-of-two has been indulging in five-star hotels, where she splashes out on expensive massages and alcohol.
The First Lady is believed to have taken 42 days of holiday in the past year, including a $375,000 break in Spain and a four-day ski trip to Vail, Colorado, where she spent $2,000 a night on a suite at the Sebastian hotel.
And the first family’s nine-day stay in Martha’s Vineyard is also proving costly, with rental of the Blue Heron Farm property alone costing an estimated $50,000 a week.
The source continued: ‘Michelle also enjoys drinking expensive booze during her trips. She favours martinis with top-shelf vodka and has a taste for rich sparking wines.
While the President and his wife do pay for some of their personal expenses from their own pocket, the website whitehousedossier.com says that the amount paid by the couple is ‘dwarfed by the overall cost to the public’
The magazine (National Enquirer) also reported that Mrs Obama, whose fashion choices are widely followed, had been going on ‘wild shopping sprees’, much to the distress of her husband, who, its sources reveal, is ‘absolutely furious’ at his wife’s ‘out-of-control spending’.
