Rich and Famous First Couple Take Separate Planes to Same Place
It must be nice to have taxpayers at your disposal. The Washington Times reports on the latest Obama travel extravaganza: “Taxpayers paid for President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama to fly separately Thursday to Los Angeles, where they appeared on separate TV talk shows on the same day. Mr. Obama flew on Air Force One, which costs about $228,000 per hour of flight time, to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday night in Los Angeles. Meanwhile, Mrs. Obama flew on a different plane Thursday across country to Burbank, California, to tape an appearance on Ellen Degeneres’ show. That show will be broadcast on Monday.” The Obama’s have already spent tens of millions of dollars on vacations, so what’s another couple of junkets out West? That’s life as America’s royalty.
