And you wonder why Michele Obama went to Target for a staged photo op....


it's because of her extravagant travel at taxpayer expense. She wants to go on vacation, so she takes her mother, her daughters, her niece and nephew, her hairdresser and her makeup artist ALL at taxpayers' expense.

See she was promoting a better relationship between the USA and this african country.

NO! she was on vacation at taxpayer expense. All while we are struggling. A damn shame!

Windy? I suppose that dangerous windyness was in the FAA forecasts and the pilot chose to ignore that risk, correct?
