The White House Press Corps (WHPC) is reporting that President Obama and his two daughters arrived back at the White House at 10:20 a.m.
“As part of her birthday gift from the President, the First Lady will remain in Hawaii to spend time with friends ahead of her upcoming 50th birthday,” said the White House.
According to Lynn Sweet, the First Lady doesn’t like cold weather. Must be nice to have the option to forgo the cold in Washington, DC while the poor and under privileged don’t have the option to extend a $3 Million Hawaiian vacation.
Many news outlets have reported that Ms. Obama’s 5oth Birthday (which is twelve days away) will also cost millions. The gala dubbed ‘Snacks & Sips & Dancing & Dessert’ will be held on January 18th.
The First Lady remaining in Hawaii away from the President is just fueling speculation that there is trouble in the Obama marriage. Separate vacations are not anything new for this Presidency, but following the Mandela Memorial and other photographs in the press, it seems that First Lady Michelle Obama is not very happy with the President of late. So folks have been wondering, ‘are the Obama’s heading for divorce in 2014?’
Seems Obama’s popularity has diminished both inside and outside the White House.
Meanwhile, the White House has not released when First Lady Michelle Obama will return to the White House, nor did they release a cost analysis of her extended stay in Hawaii. But according to Breitbart, when the First Lady traveled separately from Hawaii from he family, that cost was estimated between $63,000 and $100,000.
With a National debt at $17.3T, maybe First Lady Obama’s could be satisfied with a 3 week Hawaiian Vacation and come with the President husband and the children.
One hopes that Presidents ‘Birthday gift’ to the First Lady be paid from his income and not from the United States Treasury.
