The the bill is in for the First Grifter’s Aspen getaway: $83,182.99
Over 83k for an Aspen Get-away… thank God they stayed at a Bundler’s house to save us a buck!
How much would a weekend trip skiing trip to Aspen, Colorado, cost you? If you’re Michelle Obama and her two daughters, would you believe over $83,000?
Believe it. Over President’s Day weekend in February of this year, Michelle took her two daughters skiing in Aspen — and the cost was $83,182.99
You heard that correctly. $83,182.99.
Among the costs were:
- U.S. Secret Service, including accommodations at the Fasching Haus deluxe condominium and the Inn at Aspen: $48,950.38.
- Cost for the flight, per official DOD published hourly rates: $22,583.70.
- Food and miscellaneous items on the flight: $235.44.
- Rental cars: $6,442.23.
By the way, this was the 16th vacation in three years for the Obamas. You think you’re overworked? Try their travel agent.
Then again, this was chump change for the Obamas. Remember how much it cost when Michelle Obama vacationed in Spain in August 2010? $467,585.
Or her June 2011 trip to South Africa and Botswana? $424,142.
Is there any limit to the perks that Obama and his family will enjoy at the expense of the American people?
Then it was on to Aspen; home of Colorado seasonal home bundlers Jim and Paula Crown from the Chicago Crown dynasty. Surprisingly, seats at the luncheon ran $1000 for the cheap seats to $10,000 per couple for an upgraded lunch and photo op. Really good value compared to the $38,000 they were getting for the top priced seats for breakfast in Park City! That can mean only one thing: the Wons intend to hit the Aspen crowd up again later in the election cycle.
That should likewise give you a little hint as to where Lady M plans to spend next winter’s ski vacation with the “girls.”
I’m shocked she didn’t find a way to fit a boob belt into this outfit. It’s probably under the coat.
I can’t say it better than the Mail Online:
