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:

Princess Grace Suite

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. I would say that in presidential history,no two people have actually thrown money away as much as these two boobs. Naturally, that boils down to that neither of them have a sixteenth of an inch of class—–of any kind!!! Born cheaters—- to the limit !!! I wonder what goes on in the minds of the Secret Service guys who must witness this disgusting pair in action. Poor stupid America—at least the parts that cheated this moron into a disgustingly,lieing, “presidency”. Yoo Hoo— Lee Harvey Oswald, where are you????

  2. You make it seem like she’s the first, First Lady to travel. The First Lady of the United States doesn’t stay in a Motel 6. She & the President should stay at the best locations. Get over it.

  3. We should be glad she’s not taking a $100,000 dollar a night room…which is what I am sure they wouldn’t even blink twice at doing if there were a $100,000 night/room. The whole trip is supposed to cost over $100 million dollars…..but that’s because we have 14% unemployment and taking a $1 billion dollar trip would be inexcusable….and we wouldn’t tolerate that…..we deserve everything we get!


  5. I think it’s great when the family goes on some of these international trips, however staying in 3K+ hotel room in a different city goes beyond what is reasonable considering the state of our national budget at this point in time. We are borrowing money from the Chinese to pay for this. It also appears that it requires a separate airplane to fly around the first lady. Be happy going where your husband is going, be happy sleeping where your husband is sleeping, be happy flying on the same airplane your husband is flying on. Otherwise….stay home!

  6. Why should Moochie care about money? It’s easy to spend other people’s money. Why is she taking any vacation right now when she’s scheduled to take a $100 million one to Africa next month?? And another month-long vacation to “billionaire’s playground”, Martha’s Vineyard, the next month? No matter what, she should never be allowed to bring a 30-person entourage of friends with her when taxpayers are stuck paying for it. The Obama’s are nothing more than high-end welfare bums…….

  7. HOLY CRAP!!! I can’t believe a couple of Libs have actually come out of hiding?!?! I haven’t seen you Blind-Faith-Sheeple around comment sections in almost 2 FULL WEEKS!!! Eh… every good thing comes to an end eventually. I guess they’ve had adequate time to absorb, and now regurgitate, their MSNBC stark raving BS. It is so sad when I see that my fine American brothers and sisters would rather support tyranny that admit that you were lied to and betrayed. I voted for Bush the first go around… but by the 2nd time, I had already fought in a bogus war and realized I had been duped. It’s not your fault Libs… But defending fellow Libs just because they are Libs… well… that’s just stupid. Grow a pair! Have some original thoughts for god sake! Both sides are corrupt to the core! Vote independent.

  8. The White House is billing Michelle’s trip to Dublin as having diplomatic significance…this means the US taxpayer is picking up the whole tab here.

    • and not one prominent news agency will ask the hard questions, will hold the president to the flame – what, pray tell, is the “diplomatic significance” of michele and 30 members of her posse to be in dublin spending american taxpayer monies? there is no diplomatic significance. it is purely a pleasure trip on other people’s money. tnb – typical negro behavior – soak the government for as much as possible whether it’s food stamps, free lunches, welfare benefits on one level; $3,330 a night hotel rooms, champagne and lobster on the obama level.

  9. I am glad they are abusing power they way that they have. If they had behaved even vaguely like human beings the Dems would be in power for another 4 years. This expenditure pales in comparison to the the expenditures of the entire country during their reign. The morons that voted for these spendthrifts are to blame. Why doesn’t Congress put them on a budget?

  10. The people are getting sick and tired of our tax money catering to the travels of the most elitist president and administration to date.

  11. What a disgraceful moocher!! If she followed half of the “advice” she is so fond of throwing out, she would be a half-way decent person. As it is, she is the perfect example of the self-indulgent, extravagant, person she loves to accuse others of being. …and she is doing her daughters no favors by delclaring they are “citizens of the world”.; they will learn soon enough that the rest of the world won’t pay the price America has paid. Michelle Obama, I spit you.out Ireland. Or Africa , or wherever you prefer to be than Ameica.

  12. Bob, you’re a freak’in Moron… and respell freak’in.

    LCDR M(Ret) you are so correct about the old country liking O, it’s only because they’ve been Socialists for so long that’s the only thing they’re used to.

  13. I see the emperor and empress is finding a new way to drain taxpayer money for extravagant trips and meaningless outings. You can always detect those that use the poor (in their ignorance) so they can look like the rich, and act like the rich and satisfy their envy of the rich.

  14. Yeah, but, but, but… TONED ARMS !!!
    Isn’t that what’s important? Besides there are millions of American Democrats that are perfectly happy to sit in their dilapidated homes, apartments, trailers, cardboard boxes, etc. scraping by each day, and marvel about the majesty of the Obamas living like royalty off the money that conceivably COULD be spent to make their own lives a bit more comfortable.
    I cannot fathom how they can actually project that the Obamas “care” for them while watching the gargantuan amount of cash being spent on their parties and entertainment.

  15. I recall France had a revolution in part because its royalty acted like elitists who drained the country’s wealth and squeezed citizens into poverty under wasteful, self-serving policies (or the neglect of any policy). No longer is the “wealth charge” tied to the GOP (largley a myth by leftists). Democrats love to flash their wealth and arrogance as corporations snuggle up to government and get huge tax breaks.

  16. “The White House is billing Michelle’s trip to Dublin …”

    The sentence started out promising!

    … as having diplomatic significance, but …”

  17. “The suite is the best the luxury hotel has to offer, featuring two beds, “-
    is the second bed for that person she had a fling with once before?
    Looks like POTUS has no interest in digging her………..

  18. To the manner born? I think not. It’s people like Moochelle, growing up lower middle or middle class that find this sort of extravagance irresistible. She also likes, or claims to like, arugula salads and Wagyu beef, as any good parvenu should. She thinks this elevates her taste. Ha. She might as well live it up now because the gravy train will end soon enough. What a vulgar cow. The fact that half the country approves of this Chicago Imelda Marcos demonstrates how far down the path toward a banana republic we’ve come. But of course, that’s where 10 million of us (illegally) ARE from.

  19. I wonder where the previous first ladies stayed on such trips… or does this have to be with the fact that she is black, so she does not deserve what the previous white first ladies had?

  20. If the Obama’s don’t bankrupt the U.S. while they are in the White House it will be a miracle. I think that they feel like they better do all this traveling at our expense so when his highness is finally in a home of his own, he will have wonderful memories of how Royalty traveled. There spending is insane and I can’t believe it is allowed, when supposedly we are nearly broke.

  21. This goes to show the American people JUST what she and her family think of us!! We owe this to them, they feel that the American people owe them this and MUCH, MUCH MORE. This family HATES the WHITE AMERICAN people. To bad we just couldn’t just leave them
    there for EVER!!!!

  22. I wonder where the previous first ladies stayed on such trips… something that makes me go hmmmmmm
    ….or black first ladies do not deserve what the previous white first ladies had?

  23. It never ceases to amaze me that a President who says we don’t have the money to do anything that needs done for the good of the American people will spend millions on his golf trips and let his simple minded wife run around the world spend the American people’s money on expensive hotels and trip expenses. Congress should send them a bill. Oh that’s right, congressmen do the same things. Our only hope is that God will reach out an touch them, and let them see the light.

  24. Federal Civil Servants go on furlough July 8th through the end of the fiscal year, affecting a 20% cut in pay. They are also not allowed to travel unless there is an urgent need. This is because our government is supposed to be too broke to pay them.

    Likewise, military families living in base housing haven’t been allowed to use their air conditioning this year in order to cut back on the expense of utilities.

    It makes my head spin to see the all the penny-pinching and sacrifices the little people are being forced to do to in the name preventing our government from shutting down, and the First Lady’s refusal to tighten her belt with the rest of us.

    It is good to know that the little guys’ sacrifices will help the first lady to keep up her jet-set lifestyle, rubbing elbows with Hollywood A-listers like Beyonce and Jay-Z. That’s awesome!

  25. Mmmmmmmm. I seem to clearly remember when President Johnson’s girls traveled to New York for shopping excursions that they wore a wig and traveled commerical. This woman needs to come down to earth. She is not that special, and she should feel great guilt at using up all that money while admonishing us to share ours.
