One Personal 747 Jetliner And 24 Assistants Weren't Enough For Her Eight-Year Vacation On Our Dime?

Richard Branson, the business magnate behind the Virgin Group empire divulged in his new autobiography, Finding My Virginity, that when Mr. and Mrs. The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer came to visit him in the Virgin Islands after President Trump’s inauguration Michelle “couldn’t contain her excitement."
They traveled with an entourage of one hundred Secret Service agents and aides to the private island.
“We’re free!” Michelle Obama said, according to Branson, as he and his wife, Joan, greeted the couple.
“I’ve never been one for reserve and Barack and Michelle were eager to do away with formalities, too,” he writes. “When one of our team asked how to address the former First Lady, she gleefully shouted, ‘Michelle!'”
“It’s so nice to have my name back after eight years,” she told Branson, according to the book.
“We’re free!”  Let that settle on your brain for a sec.
Michelle Obama had an unprecedented number of staffers to cater to her every whim, twenty-four in fact, the largest of any first lady.
All eight trips the Obamas took to Hawaii cost the American taxpayer $3.5 million.
According to a report from Judicial Watch in December 2016, the Obama's travel expenses totaled over $96 million during his eight years as president.
Let’s see…there was Kenya, Malaysia, Ethiopia, Laos, Cambodia, Bali and six trips to France and Germany.
Right from the start, Sasha and Malia were included in their father's travels. In 2009, the First Family visited Ghana to see a slave outpost and visit Michelle's ancestral roots.
Over the years, the daughters accompanied their father to Argentina, Brazil and Cuba. They also went on additional trips with Michelle, like in the summer of 2015 when they went to London, Edinburgh and Venice.
In addition to the annual trips to Hawaii each December, the Obamas also spent two weeks each August in luxurious private homes on Martha’s Vineyard with rents up to $50,000 per week.
These people have frolicked in the lap of luxury hobnobbing with the elite of the elite and that has the Democrat base fuming.  The level of luxury they enjoy is unprecedented for a modern-day president.
Left-wing activists are troubled by what they see as a trend by Obama to distance himself from the base of the party. It’s not just vacations. The president also has enjoyed hefty fees for speeches to prominent Wall Street firms.  The World's Most Dangerous Community Organizer is hell-bent to join the fabled one percenters.
It was he who said, “The world must do more to combat income inequality, noting that the concentration of wealth fans fears that governments exist solely to benefit the powerful.”
