After lavish trips to Spain, England, Indonesia, Mexico......
Well, now Her Majesty, Queen Michelle, is trooping off to Africa.
She's taken the kids and her mother on a whirlwind tour of South Africa and Botswana!
This trip is supposedly focusing in on "young women leaders and the legacy of the anti-apartheid struggle." (eyeroll)
Honestly - the trip really is to visit anywhere she can on the taxpayers dime while Barry still holds office. Time is fleeting - so many places to visit, so little time before their reign is over.
I think the Obamas must hold the record for out of country travel (and playing golf and basketball).
So glad they are having so much fun while millions of Americans are out of work and struggling.
1/7 of Americans are on food stamps.
I hear the unemployment figures for African Americans is now 16%.
Depression-era levels. The most recent figures show African American joblessness at 16.2 percent. For black males, it's at 17.5 percent; And for black teens, it's nearly 41 percent.
(...and Michelle won't be sending any of them a postcard from her safari!)
How's that for "Hope and Change"?
