Michelle Obama took her daughters to Africa for a safari, at a cost to the taxpayers of over $400,000. She listed her daughters as “senior staffers” in the paperwork for the trip.
Part of this is about the appalling sense of entitlement possessed by those on the Left. But to me the more amusing part is the juxtaposition with President Obama’s dog eating. When Senator McCain joked about it on Twitter, and when others have joked about it, the Democrats response has been “how dare you pick on a 6 – 10 year old?” Now, silly me, I thought President Obama was in his late 40s / early 50s, and in his 40s when it wrote the book talking about his dog eating. But this is the Obama Administration, where the children are “senior staffers”, and the President is a “child”.
