This just really puts it in perspective, doesn’t it?
President Obama thinks Michelle Obama needs to get paid for being First Lady:
Let me tell you, now, Michelle would point out First Ladies get paid nothing. So there’s clearly not equal pay in the White House when it comes to her and me. But before we were in the White House, I wanted to make sure Michelle got paid as much as she could. I want a big paycheck for Michelle. That wasn’t a women’s issue. If she had a bigger paycheck, that made us able to pay the bills. (Applause.) Why would I want my spouse or my daughter discriminated against? That doesn’t make any sense.
So this should be a no-brainer. And hopefully we’ll — we’re just going to keep on pushing until the light bulb goes off above the heads of some of these Republican friends of mine.
Former First Lady Laura Bush begs to differ: “No. I don’t think so. There are plenty of perks.”
And no First Lady in history knows how to exploit those “perks” like Michelle, who — alone — has cost American taxpayers a staggering $44.4 MILLION in ‘vacation’ travel expenses, trips in which she took her mother, daughters, and dozens of friends alone for the ride.
And if, as Laura suggested, a First Lady might be able to be paid for a “job” — what could Miichelle even do? She was forced to turn in her law license under a cloud of scandal. And she has utterly failed as the nations’s “food czar,” producing new school lunch “standards” rejected by students and parents from coast-to-coast.
Just one more entitled, spoiled liberal.
