As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Michelle to Stay in $3,300-a-Night Dublin Hotel Suite

First Lady Michelle Obama is staying Monday evening in the $3,300-per-night Princess Grace suite of Dublin’s Five-Star Shelbourne Hotel, according to Irish press reports, adding some credence to accusations she is in the city for a quick vacation at taxpayer expense.

Michelle jetted to Dublin Monday afternoon Irish time after a brief stop in Belfast with President Obama, who is in the city for the two-day G-8 Summit.

The White House is billing Michelle’s trip to Dublin as having diplomatic significance, but her itinerary suggests otherwise. She and her daughters will visit the Trinity College library to explore President Obama’s Irish family roots, attend a performance by the world-famous Riverdance troupe, and visit the Wicklow Mountains national forest.

Judging by the tail number of her plane on the ground at Dublin Airport, it appears Air Force Two has been flown to Europe along with Air Force One and is being used to transport Michelle around.

The Shelbourne’s Princess Grace suite is so-named because it was often used by Grace and her husband Prince Ranier. Here’s a look inside:

The suite is the best the luxury hotel has to offer, featuring two beds, two bathrooms, four phones and three large televisions. The bedding is 100 percent Egyptian cotton and comes with turndown service, a Nespresso machine and butler service.

According to press reports out of Ireland, 30 rooms have been booked in the hotel to accomodate Michelle and her entourage, which would presumably include various staff and a bevy of Secret Service agents.

The city will be plagued by traffic jams during Michelle’s visit, and according to one report, high school and university students are in danger of being late for final exams and are advised to allow for plenty of extra time for travel.

After visiting Dublin, Mrs. Obama and her daughters will join President Obama in Berlin for the second leg of his European trip.

  1. But, we can’t afford to give our soldiers hot meals, can’t open WH tours and can’t afford to secure our borders….hypocrisy!
    Hopefully a stray bullet will solve the problem.

  2. You know, in a couple weeks I get furloughed for 20% of my hours per pay period, I am not a high payed federal employee, I am a low level labor who is going to have trouble making ends meet but they are spending millions and millions on this vacation. They act as though they care about the people but in reality they care about themselves only. Move you vacation money to the sequestered wages and the people you say you care for so much will not have to suffer! Enjoy your vacation!

  3. Why should we have to foot the bill as taxpayers. That trip should be charged on her personal credit card. They could have rented a mansion for that kind of cash. I hate it when trash bags like that take advantage of hard working American people.

  4. Based on the behavior of the daughters and the less than proper clothing worn in public during their visit to Ireland I would guess private school has not rubbed off on them. You can take the females out of Chicago but you can’t take Chicago out of the females.

    • From the photos I’ve seen out of Ireland (at the University and at the Riverdance) both of the girls looked sullen and bored as usual.

  5. Who would have ever thought that a white trash atheist whore and an African goat herder could have given us this problem!!!!! Wake up Obamatards Get him and his B###H and her mother and the kids out of the White House!!!!!

  6. America is paying the price for “affirmative action,” “political correctness,” and “cultural diversity.”

    Michelle Obama and her ilk are the results of a social experiment gone wrong.

  7. doesnt matter if shes paying for it or not their income comes from us, unfortunately thats the tip of the iceberg. their vacations can run into the millions.

  8. Come on, ALL Presidents when traveling on gov business have nice accommodations …. SO, BO should be the first to use the back door and eat in the kitchen? Sound familiar ?

  9. This is such a joke. I cannot believe the garbage these people are feeding the country and we are just sitting back and letting them

  10. This is outrageous and then after spending millions on this trip they are heading for Africa to spend another 100 million. Obama needs to be impeached and I hope he remembers to take his Mooshell with him.

  11. Good thing we have the money so the Obamas can travel like the Kings and Queens they so richly desire to be. Too bad we can’t afford hot meals for our brave men and women in uniform serving if Afghanistan. I guess it is just another sacrifice they make for our royal family.

  12. Stupid people running the government…..how over indulgent to you have to be and to expect everyone to pay for you. Biggggg mistake America……how low do we have to be to expect this guy and his money loving wife to turn this country around. “For the first time I am proud to be an American” should have given you a warning…really!!! I am so “not proud” of our country for voting this idiot into office. And yes…..I do miss President GW Bush. What class he and his wife were. They love the military and gave emotion every time we needed to see or hear it. Sooooo sorry we have this low grade person in the office that once was respected. Wake up America!!!!! Who sends a form letter to a member of the military who was killed in Ben Ghazi some 6 months after he really died? Who does this?

  13. The King (and queen) have no clothes. It matters not one bit that America is broke, we can’t feed our military in harms way 1 hot meal a day. Victims of hurricane Sandy are still in desperate means. We have had several towns devastated by tornadoes and other disasters. The president arrives on his white horse for a photo op, says he will fix it all, blames everybody else then takes off with an ungodly entourage and puts them up in the most expensive place the gov’t can find. And what idiot thought it would be a good idea for the secret service to purchase dozens of brand new tractors so as to appear indiscreet, when any fool knows who they are.

  14. This does not include the 50 to 100 million they will be spending on their Africa vacation trip coming soon.Was on computer yesterday but was quickly taken off.

  15. The suite rents for $3300 per night but the real question is what is she or the US government being charged for the suite? (I’ll bet you the hotel comped the suites just for the publicity of having her stay at their hotel.)

    • Were you born yesterday? Just one thing, buddy: prove it. I’ve lived through several Republican presidents, and NONE of their wives spent the taxpayers money like this. In fact, none of the wives of previous presidents had the unmitigated gall to spend the taxpayer’s money so boldly. Jacqueline Kennedy spent a lot of public money, but it was spent on restoring the White House, not on herself. Even at that, it only cost $232,371.83 (equal to about $3Million today). In other words, it cost less to restore the White House than to fund one of Michelle’s vacations!

  16. Oh that is terrible. She should be in a room that only has one TV and on phone! I’m sure when Bush and other presidents went to Europe their wives had to stay in youth hostels, or rooms with no TV’s. Im outraged. FAUXRAGE and BENGHAZI!

  17. Imelda Marcos. The Progressive believes in precisely two things: his own magnificence and the power of brute force. In combination, they lead him naturally from the role of pestiferous busybody to brutal dictator. Where the productive man dreams of the things he might create if only left alone by his fellows, the Progressive dreams of the world he could create if only the lives and property of his fellows were at his disposal. The roots of his pathology lie in that oldest and most destructive of all human vices, the desire for the power to rule over other men.

  18. While people are being burned out of their homes and others will spend their summer putting their lives back together after losing everything in the Tornadoes, The Obamas will be jetsetting and wollowing in the lap of luxury at OUR expense. To hell with the American people as long as they can enjoy all the trappings of the Presidency. Mabe they can stay in Africa and do us all a favor. Then the cost of their trip will be well worth it!

  19. Not 3300 a night. 30 rooms for the entourage. Their rooms probably
    Arent any cheaper. Do the math. I came up with 90k a nite.
    I want that “job.”

  20. Yes, but how much are the hotel rooms for the other 100 plus staff traveling with the Obama family? Besides their immediate staff there are huge contingencies of other agency staff who are forced to attend.

  21. Transvestite “Dude Looks Like A Lady” ILLEGAL Michelle/Michael Obama Rakes In All The Hard Working Tax Payer Money. Ghetto King Kong Baby Sister/Brother Is A Thief By Stealing Government Money Because His/Her Partner Is Foreign Born Illegal Alien Obama/Osama. Arrest The Criminals Names Obama’s And Put Them In Jail For Fraud/Treason.

  22. Just did quick math on the hotel cost alone for average rooms at this hotel for 3 days 30 rooms: $39000. There is no way these grifters are paying. I believe we should check their pockets when the are finally impeached!! Probably find WH ashtrays, silverware and punch bowl under Mooch’s dress!!

  23. President Obama seriously needs to be impeach NOW! We still have 3 more years to deal with him….It has to be done now and have him out. Economy is only gonna get worse, have to get it back on track!

  24. The Obamas never had REAL jobs. They are professional parasites, like millions of their constituents, and they will feed on the host until the host collapses.

  25. NO past President is responsible for ANY of Obama’s actions or policies.

    NONE.

    Barack Hussein Obama’s arrogantly incompetent, WASTEFUL socialist snob policies are HIS OWN IDEAS, and CANNOT be blamed on anyone else but HIM!

    If he truly WAS as smart and awesome as his stupid idiot supporters pretend, NOBODY WOULD QUESTION ANYTHING HE’S DONE.

  26. I can always tell when an article has been linked on drudge. All the racists come out of the woodworks to comment. Yeah, right. The First Lady is a “disgrace” because she has a Doctorate from Harvard. Would you have them stay at a Motel 6?

    • When America is finally bankrupted by the current spending policies, make sure your kids have learned Chinese or Russian as the country get divied up to those economies that are still solvent……

  27. you forgot to mention recycled white house reporters.it’s so easy to throw cheap shots at the obama family from your so-called information forum. whatever sticks to the wall, right?
