During her husband’s presidency, Michelle Obama enjoyed her status of being the First Lady and silently spent millions of tax money on luxurious vacations for herself and her family. Now that Barack Obama’s time is almost over, she is getting called out to explain her greedy ridiculous spending of $4,823,206.88 on their Hawaii vacation.
As reported, Obama’s family spent every Christmas on Hawaii, which cost at least $85,029,819 of tax money.
Here’s the cost of last year’s trip ONLY for the Secret Service:
- Hotel and lodging costs totaled $1,000,458.63
- The Secret Service spent $165,893.88 on car rentals.
- Air and rail expenses totaled $67,964.16.
Even though the vacation was from December 18, 2015 to January 3, 2016, Obama’s Secret Service rented several homes for 19 days, from December 16. That cost $245,993.12. They were located near the Marine Corps base at Kaneohe Bay. Despite all that, the Secret Service also rented rooms at the Moana Surfrider resort on Waikiki Beach and the Ala Moana Hotel, spending a total of $671,895.99, or $40,249.48 individually.
But this is not the end of the Secret Service’s excessive spending. They also rented 103 cars for the two-week vacation, which cost $165,893.88 taxpayer money.
And let’s not forget the main roles in this play – the greedy Obama family, They stayed at the Hale Reena Estate, which “rents for anywhere between $5,000 to $10,000 a night, depending on the season.” Michelle also made sure her family dined out at Hawaii’s most expensive restaurants, which included:
- On Sunday, December 20, the Obamas had dinner at Morimoto, a celebrity chef-owned Asian-fusion restaurant,
- On Christmas Eve, they dined at MW Restaurant in Honolulu,
- On December 27, the first family took their dinner at “one of Hawaii’s finest restaurants,” Hoku’s at the Kahala Hotel and Resort,
- The next day, the Obamas dined at Alan Wong’s with friends,
- And on New Year’s Day, the Obamas dined at Halekulani, billed as one of the “top restaurants on Oahu.”
“The Secret Service and the Air Force are being abused by unnecessary travel,” said Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton. “Unnecessary presidential travel for fundraising and luxury vacations on the taxpayers’ dime would be a good target for reform for the incoming Trump administration.”
As expected, people were furious to find out how much of their money was spent on their ridiculously expensive vacations. They expressed their anger on Twitter:
