Michelle Obama’s abuse of the American Taxpayer

In America, we do not have royalty. We do not want royalty, and we do not want to pay for royalty. What you are about to read will disgust you. Below are the costs that the American Taxpayer must contribute just to Michelle Obama, whom I would proclaim shouldn’t be paid any of the below costs. Not a single dollar. First is the cost of her direct staff and their positions. Second is the cost of her trip to Spain followed by the sum. It should be of note that she is the first to have a staff this large. These costs are completely foolish expenditures.

First Lady Michelle Obama’s Servant List and Pay Scale
The First Lady Requires More Than Twenty Attendants (That’s 22
Attendants to be exact)

1. $172,200 – Sher, Susan (Chief Of Staff)

2. $140,000 – Frye, Jocelyn C. (Deputy Assistant to the President and
Director of Policy And Projects For The First Lady)

3. $113,000 – Rogers, Desiree G. (Special Assistant to the President
and White House Social Secretary)

4. $102,000 – Johnston, Camille Y. (Special Assistant to the President

18. $43,000 – Tubman, Samantha (Deputy Associate Director, Social

Staff to the First Lady)

20. $36,000 – Armbruster, Sally M. (Staff Assistant to the Social

21. $35,000 – Bookey, Natalie (Staff Assistant)

22. $35,000 – Jackson, Deilia A. (Deputy Associate Director of

Correspondence for the First Lady)

The total cost is $1,591,200.00 per year just for the First Lady.

There has NEVER been anyone in the White House at any time who has
created such an army of staffers whose sole duties are the facilitation
of the First Lady’s social life. One wonders why she needs so much
help, at taxpayer expense, when even Hillary only had three; Jackie
Kennedy one; Laura Bush one; and prior to Mamie Eisenhower, social help
came from the President’s own pocket.

Note: This does not include makeup artist Ingrid Grimes-Miles, 49, and
“First Hairstylist” Johnny Wright, 31, both of whom traveled aboard Air
Force One to Europe .

Now let’s look at her August trip to Spain.

Air Force 2 Round trip $180,000.00
Air Force 2 on the ground for 5 days $250,000.00
Hotel and Meals
Per diem $75,000.00
Limo cars $70,000.00
Overtime pay $150,000.00

Total $1,025,000.00

Total cost spent just on first lady on these two issues $2,616,200.00

This is a person that doesn’t understand that she’s a public servant. I would argue that all First Lady’s should not exceed what their family budget allows. None of the above is necessary for the nations business and should have been paid by the Obama family. 

Not the tax payer.

  1. I am impressed, I must say. Very rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both informative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. Your blog is outstanding; the issue is something that not many people are talking intelligently about. I’m really happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to it.


  2. Please never let your opinions and insightful knowldge be squelched, shaped, or distorted. The information you provided here regardless of its complexity or simplicity has made a major impact on my epistemological groundwork and will not be forgotten. Livestrong blogger!


  3. For what its worth, the layout is definitely very interesting. You know how to balance writing and images/videos. However, I cant get over how little you actually bring to light here. I think that everyones said the same thing that youve said over and over again. Dont you think its time for something more?


  4. Youre not the average site writer, man. You definitely have something powerful to add to the web. Your design is so strong that you could almost get away with being a bad writer, but youre even awesome at expressing what you have to say. Such a great blog. Ill be back for more.


  5. Strange this post is totaly unrelated to what I was searching google for, but it was listed on the first page. I guess your doing something right if Google likes you enough to put you on the first page of a non related search.


  6. My husband just told me about your site. He saved it on the computer so I could look at it and I must say you’ve got some awesome stuff here. Sorry I don’t have much more to contribute, but I just wanted to offer up some encouragement.
