TheBlaze says Obama seems to think Michelle Obama should get a salary though I am not really so sure he went that far.
But he reminded us Michelle Obama wasn’t getting a paycheck in case we didn’t already know that. Of course we knew that, why does he have to mention it? Wasn’t really all that funny when you consider all the lavish vacations she has taken on the taxpayer’s dime.
Other noteworthy points from TheBlaze:
- She virtually lives without cost (and in a pretty fancy place that she was allowed to redecorate without the budget constraints faced by most Americans).
- Her “weekend home” — Camp David — is certainly one that most of us would consider to be worth visiting almost every month.
- Michelle Obama has a liberal vacation allowance, with a private jet that she can and does use day and night.
- Her private security (Secret Service) keeps the First Lady safe at all times.
- The First Lady also has a personal staff numbering 24. (Hillary Clinton had 19, Laura Bush 18)
