The first lady Michelle Obama and her daughters Sasha, 12, and Malia, 15, wrapped up their very expensive trip to China (taxpayers will foot the bill for Mrs. Obama’s pricey $8,400 per night accommodations at the Westin hotel).
While Mrs. Obama seems to have charmed her way into the hearts of English speaking Chinese citizens, it is the sulky, petulant Sasha who is getting most of the attention from the national media.
Remember Malia Obama’s controversial Spring Break vacation to Mexico with 12 of her friends and about 25 Secret Service agents earlier this year? Judicial Watch has released records detailing the cost of that vacation to American taxpayers.
According to the records, obtained from the U.S. Secret Service as a result of a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit, the total cost of the trip comes to $115,500.87 — not including the salaries and expenses of the 25 Secret Service agents for their babysitting services.
