For the eighth year in a row, the Obama family will head off to Hawaii this week for their lengthy Christmas vacation. According to Daily Mail, they will be leaving on December 18 for their lavish, taxpayer-funded getaway.
Over the last five years, the Obamas have stayed on the most-populous island of Oahu, where they have rented a $3,500-a-day, beachside property in the wealthy neighborhood of Kailua. There, the Obama women have spent most of their time lounging around the estate doing nothing while Barack spends his days at the golf course.
Their previous Hawaiian trips have cost taxpayers over $4 million, and this one is sure to be no different. In 2012, the cost reached $7 million when Obama rushed back to Washington to close a deal on the country’s behalf.
