In 2010, Michelle took her daughters, close friends, and an army of staffers and security detail to Spain, for what the media described as a “whirlwind tour of the country.”
This was just one of many extravagant vacations taken during a time when her husband was telling the American people that the country was in the worst recession since the Great Depression.
When questioned about the cost to the tax payers, the White House claimed that Michelle’s trip to Spain was mostly covered by the family’s personal funds, though the administration has refused requests to see evidence of that claim.
To that end, Judicial Watch launched a lawsuit to determine just how much of American tax-payer money was being used to fund a modern day Marie Antoinette, and her lavish trips. GOOD LUCK JW!!
