Michelle Obama Just Spent $240,000 On THIS

Earlier this summer, Michelle Obama travelled across Europe on a “business trip” to promote her latest agendas.

Now, it has been revealed just how much this vacation cost American taxpayers, and it’s sickening.

According to The Free Beacon, Michelle’s trip to Italy and the U.K. cost American taxpayers over $240,000 in air transportation alone. Specifically, the first lady’s air travel costs for the June vacation were $240,495.67.

“According to the Air Force documents, the flights to London, England and Milan, Venice, and Vicenza, Italy, for the June 15–21, 2015, trip totaled 20:35 hours at the cost of $11,684 per hour, bringing the flight expense total to $240,495.67,” Judicial Watch reported.

Reports also reveal that though Michelle billed this as a “business trip,” she ended up doing lots of sightseeing and partied with British royals like Prince Harry.

This $240,000 figure is only the beginning in terms of how much Americans paid for this trip, since it doesn’t include hotel and ground transportation costs. We wouldn’t be surprised if Americans paid over one million dollars for this six day vacation…

“The Obama family continues to bill the taxpayers for costly tourism jaunts thinly disguised as humanitarian crusades,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “If Michelle Obama wants to take tea with Prince Harry or enthuse over Da Vinci’s The Last Supper, she is certainly entitled to do so, but not at taxpayer expense.”
