I’m not sure how much more out of touch the Obama’s can get with Americans still reeling from a stagnant economy. Barack and Michelle Obama are set to take separate vacations this weekend, Barack in Florida and Michelle out west on a ski trip.
The White House confirms today that President Barack Obama will be vacationing in Florida this weekend. His wife, First Lady Michelle Obama, will be in Colorado. The two daughters will be with Michelle.
From the White House press gaggle aboard Air Force One:
Earnest confirmed that FLOTUS and her daughters are on a “ski trip out West with family and friends”, and won’t be with POTUS in Florida this weekend.
While the rest of his family will be skiing, Obama is expected to be hitting the links with golf pros and buddies in Florida.
Vice President Joe Biden and his family, according to the White House, will be in Colorado this weekend on vacation.
All this flying around on separate jets with separate Secret Service security details is sure to land the taxpayers a bill in the millions. It’s not the first time, either. Barack and Michelle have made it a habit to spend obscene amounts of tax money on personal vacations, but this might be the worst yet.
