You can’t be serious! Michelle Obama spent over $600K to visit Morocco for one night! Well, to be fair, the first lady took an entourage of Secret Service personnel, her two daughters, and others vital to her mission promoting “Let Girls Learn.” Don’t forget, someone had to pay for a spa visit, communication back home, car rentals and chauffeur fees. Easy to see how the bill can reach 600K.
How can the First Lady afford this extravagant trip? Well, it’s easy when you’ve got your hand in the taxpayer’s pocket. Did we mention that Michelle was joined at dinner by Meryl Streep and the King of Morocco’s wife, Princess Lalla Salma, along with other members of the Moroccan Royal Family? Committed to the “Let Girls Learn” initiative, to the tune of over $100 million, the Millennium Challenge Corporation, a U.S. government foreign aid agency working in partnership with the Moroccan government, is investing the money to transform secondary education in the country. Maybe the King of Morocco doesn’t have the cash reserves to help his people on his own, unlike the United States because, as you know, we have lots of surplus cash.
100 Percent Fed Up reports:
Michelle Obama took an entourage to Morocco for one night at a cost to taxpayers of over $600K but there’s so much more to this taxpayer giveaway.
This trip is maddening enough because it’s just more and more taxpayer dollars spent on the nothing burger of “Let Girls Learn”. Michelle Obama has been traveling all over the world on YOUR dime under the guise of education for girls. She even went to the UK for this! What a joke!
The thing that stood out to us is the “donation” of $100 million and $400K from two redistributive government agencies using your tax dollars AGAIN! Is this what we pay taxes for? Check out USAID and Millennium Challenge Corporation! While our schools crumble, we’re throwing money at countries all over the world!
