  1. The thought this inauthentic quote, but very real behavior of FLoTUS brings to mind is a phrase that would ignite an onslaught of branding as racist

  2. There is a grain of truth in every joke……. This joke is more like a silo of grain! Come Obama Day…….excuse President’s Day she will be hitting the slopes and eating buffalo chops telling others to eat cake.

  3. This is from 2012, the result of Judicial Watch’s FOIA suit.

    •The total cost for the Aspen ski vacation was at least $83,182.99.
    •The bill for the U.S. Secret Service, including accommodations at the Fasching Haus deluxe condominium and the Inn at Aspen, was $48,950.38.
    •The cost for the flight, per official DOD published hourly rates, was $22,583.70. Food and miscellaneous on-flight items cost $235.44. The cost for rental cars totaled $6,442.23.

    Key details, including flight records for the Secret Service detail and the names of individuals who accompanied Mrs. Obama on the vacation, were redacted from the documents with the exception of two staffers. One was Meredith Koop, her personal assistant and style advisor, the other was her scheduler Kristen Jarvis.


  4. Hi Keith,
    My name is Kim Schalk. I am a dc designer who is all about beauty and keeping it real.
    I have a skirt that I think the First Lady might like. Do you have any idea to whom should I send it. I have heard that if I send it directly to the White House it goes right to archives. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
    Very Sincerely
    Kim Schalk
