According to Judicial Watch the Obama family have traveled to Hawaii every single year of Barack Obama’s presidency. They have spent a grand total cost for vacations alone of over $85,029,819. That’s $85 million in taxpayer money.
Michelle Obama has been the one planning these lavish vacations and she is finally being called out for it. It seems the straw that broke the camel’s back was last Christmas trip to Hawaii for a whopping $4,823,206.88.
Here’s the breakdown of some of the costs for that trip:
Hotel and lodging costs totaled $1,000,458.63
The Secret Service spent $165,893.88 on car rentals.
Air and rail expenses totaled $67,964.16.
And those costs are just for the SECRET SERVICE alone!!
The $165,893.88 on car rentals is for the 103 cars that the Secret Service rented. No that is not a typo. They rented 103 cars for a two week vacation.
According to the Judicial Watch report, here are a few of the other things Michelle and Barack spent our hard-earned money on:
On Sunday, December 20, the Obamas had dinner at Morimoto, a celebrity chef-owned Asian-fusion restaurant,
On Christmas Eve, they dined at MW Restaurant in Honolulu,
On December 27, the first family took their dinner at “one of Hawaii’s finest restaurants,” Hoku’s at the Kahala Hotel and Resort,
The next day, the Obamas dined at Alan Wong’s with friends,
And on New Year’s Day, the Obamas dined at Halekulani, billed as one of the “top restaurants on Oahu.”
Barack also played seven rounds of golf.
According to Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton “The Secret Service and the Air Force are being abused by unnecessary travel,” Fitton went on to say “Unnecessary presidential travel for fundraising and luxury vacations on the taxpayers’ dime would be a good target for reform for the incoming Trump administration.”
Since this report came out people from all over the political and social spectrum have come out in outrage over this squandering of our tax dollars. (h/t Truthmonitor)

Liking Trump doesn't want to waste money on Air Force One like Obama wasted 75 million on vacation expenses. #MAGA fiscal responsibility 😎

We all know that President elect Trump will not tolerate the wasting of taxpayer funds like this. You can also rest assured that Donald Trump will spend a lot more time working and a lot less time golfing than Barack Hussein Obama has.
