Michelle Staying in $3,300-a-Night Dublin Hotel Suite with 29 rooms for her entourage
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.
Michelle Obama Spending Your Money On Unnecessary Irish Vacation
The President is in Dublin for the two-day G-8 Summit which will allow him to rub elbows with the likes of Stephen Harper and Vladmir Putin. It is expected that Barack Obama would attend this event. It is his job. Which brings about a very interesting perspective.
How many Americans take their families on business trips? There may be rare occasion to do so but the expectation would normally be that this expense would be out of pocket for the family and not for the company or, in this case, the American taxpayer.
