How sweet. The Obamas give each other gifts they don’t have to pay for. The first family just spent the last two weeks vacationing in Hawaii. Barack brought his daughters back, but Michelle stayed behind. It was one of her birthday gifts from her husband. All paid for by the American tax payers.
President Obama flew back from his holiday Hawaii break yesterday with daughters Sasha and Malia in tow, but without the first lady.
Michelle Obama stayed behind in Hawaii. According to the White House, “As part of her birthday gift from the President, the First Lady will remain in Hawaii to spend time with friends ahead of her upcoming 50th birthday.”
Her birthday is Jan. 17.
The Maui News reported that evidence suggests Michelle is hanging out with Oprah:
A caravan of Maui police cars and black sports utility vehicles was sighted near Oprah Winfrey’s house Sunday morning, local residents said, fueling speculation that first lady Michelle Obama is visiting the island.
Upcountry resident Paul Meyer said that he was riding his bike around 8 a.m. on Thompson Road in Kula when he saw the entourage of cars.
“There were two (Maui) police cars in front and back with their flashers on and four big black SUVs with heavy tinted windows,” Meyer said. “And then there was a van toward the end of the group – they went by pretty fast.”
Meyer, who has lived in the area for 30 years, said that he rides his bike on the road whenever he has time but was stopped on his route by a group of police officers and “Secret Service agents.”
“Two young guys were there and Maui police officers and they said the road is going to be closed for the next week,” Meyer said. “I asked, ‘Is Michelle Obama in town?’ and the policeman just nodded.”
…A Kula resident, who declined to give his name, said that he walks with his wife every morning on the road, but also was stopped Sunday by a group of “men in uniforms with bomb-sniffing dogs.”
“They said, ‘You can’t go up here . . . and that we’re Secret Service and there’s a protected person inside,’” the man said. “I’m 99 percent sure Michelle Obama is there. They wouldn’t be protecting Oprah Winfrey with Secret Service.”
Michelle’s not proud of her country, but she’s happy to stick us with the bills of her extravagant spending sprees. Classy.
