There are some people that will literally complain about anything.
The Obamas Spent 1.4 Billion of taxpayer money in one year alone on lavish vacations.
Michelle Obama’s June 2015 trip to the United Kingdom and Italy, accompanied by her daughters and mother, cost the taxpayers $240,495.67 in flight expenses alone.
Washington insiders Branded her ‘disgusting’ and ‘a vacation junkie’, they say she has been indulging in five-star hotels, where she splashes out on expensive massages and alcohol.
Meanwhile, British taxpayers only spent 57.8 million dollars on the entire royal family.
-Never before has so much money been spent on a president and his family during a single year
-The Obamas have the “biggest staff in history at the highest wages ever”
-While Obama has been in office, Air Force One has been “running with the frequency of a scheduled air line”
-Obama has 469 senior staff working under him, and 226 of them make more than $100,000 a year
Yet while delivering the commencement speech for the City College in New York on Friday, she couldn’t help herself from bringing up her unfair circumstances of racism.
She told the students, “I wake up each day in a house built by slaves…”
What a hypocrite.
And there’s one big problem with her statement, which has also been echoed by her husband: it’s not true. But don’t expect the media to tell you why.
The White House was not built by slaves.
Most of the labor force consisted of local White laborers and artisans (from Maryland and Virginia) and a number of immigrants from Ireland, Scotland, and other European nations.
But it is true that after the White House was built, the lime-based whitewashing that gives the building its iconic appearance…slaves were indeed added to the workforce.
But once again, facts get in the way of the Obama’s preachy race-baiting.
That’s because the U.S. government actually paid the slaves who worked on the White House.
Example: One slave — Philip Reid — was paid directly (not the slave owner), a sum of $1.25 per day ($31 per day in 2016 dollars). Is it technically “slave labor” — if you are paid?
Virginia Kruta of IJR adds these important points:
This is in addition to the fact that Mrs. Obama is herself a multi-millionaire living lavishly on the taxpayer dime, along with her Presidential husband, a graduate of Harvard University who is herself a walking symbol of the success that can come to anyone who is willing to work hard and apply one’s talent in America.
In other words, even as Michelle Obama herself rebukes the nation’s history of racism, she is a living example that America has done much to overcome it.
If Michelle Obama was serious about the slavery issue, she would use her huge influence to help end it instead of using the ancient history of slavery as a race baiting tool:
