The Obama family spent Valentine’s Day apart over the weekend as they all vacationed in different parts of the country. The cost of these lavish trips fell on the American taxpayer, and it cost them almost $2.3 million.
Thats right, the Obamas spent over $2 million of American’s hard earned money on themselves in just a single weekend.
According to Daily Mail, the president spent Valentine’s Day at a private golf course, where he managed to squeeze in three rounds of golf. He had political events Thursday night in San Francisco, and proceeded to take Saturday, Sunday and Monday off completely.
He wished Michelle a happy Valentine’s Day during his weekly television address.
Meanwhile, Michelle and her daughters headed to an extravagant ski resort in Aspen, Colorado for the weekend. After getting flack for her numerous vacations in the past, the first lady tried to keep this one under wraps, but her cover was blown when a car accident shut down the road her motorcade was traveling on. Michelle asked for special treatment in being allowed to pass the accident, and authorities eventually gave in.
The Obamas lavish spending in a single weekend shows their complete lack of respect for hardworking Americans everywhere. We work hard for our money, and we don’t want it to be spent funding luxurious getaways for our lazy first family.
