Michelle Obama’s Frivolous Trip to Cambodia Cost Taxpayers a Small Fortune

Michelle_Obama_arrives_at_Pope_AFB_3-12-09_2First Lady Michelle Obama just returned from a trip to Siem Reap, Cambodia, and instead of a t-shirt, she brought home to the American taxpayer a hotel bill of $242,500. The quarter of a million dollar plus price tag covers 85 single rooms, five sleeping suites, five office suites and one conference room for fourteen days, although Ms. Obama herself stayed only two days.

The information appears in an article in the Washington Free Beacon:

Mrs. Obama traveled to Siem Reap, Cambodia on March 21 to promote a girls education initiative. A contract was awarded on March 3, citing the “unusual and compelling urgency” of the First Lady’s trip.

Mrs. Obama and a delegation of senior high-level U.S. government officials stayed at the Sofitel Angkor Phokeethra Golf and Spa Resort, according to a justification and approval document for the visit…

The Sofitel Angkor Phokeethra is listed as a luxury five-star hotel.

“The Siem Reap hotel, which elegantly combines Khmer and French architectural design, features landscaped gardens, [five] restaurants and bars, meeting facilities, a luxury spa and the largest free form swimming pool in Cambodia,” according to Accor, the French hotel operator that manages the hotel. “The leading luxury resort in Siem Reap also boosts a world-class 18-hole golf course at the Phokeethra Country Club, which is only a 25 [minute] drive from the hotel.”

Suites at the Sofitel Angkor Phokeethra come with personal butler service.

Mrs. Obama traveled to Japan and Cambodia to promote the Let Girls Learn initiative, a global campaign to increase educational opportunities for girls. The First Lady held two public events while in Siem Reap, speaking for a total of 33 minutes.

Mrs. Obama spent 21 minutes talking with a group of 10 female students at Hun Sen Bakorng High School, according to a White House transcript on March 21. She then went back to the hotel to speak at Peace Corps Training Round Table for 12 minutes.

The First Lady also visited the Angkor Wat temple complex, and held a meet and greet with embassy employees while in Cambodia, according to the White House press office.

The State Department issued the contract in support of the U.S. Embassy in Phnomn Penh, Cambodia. A spokesman explained that security issues mandate that hotel accommodations for the First Lady be made without advance notice, and cannot be covered by the normal competitive bidding process.

“Security concerns prohibit sufficient advanced notification of VIP travel to allow for sufficient time to conduct full and open competition. The Department of State can only communicate with the staff at Posts abroad when authorization is given due to security concerns. They have an extremely short turnaround time when authorization has been granted for negotiations to commence and site selections to be finalized with both the local vendors and Posts before the actual Senior High Level USG VIP visit occurs.”

Special security and logistical teams survey travel sites in advance, and determine which hotels are appropriate for government VIPs and staff to occupy during foreign travel.

          I agree with you. There is NO reason for that kind of talk. This is SUPPOSED to be a DISCUSSION site.I for one think the President and his wife especially are spending money they should not be spending. Meanwhile Michelle has nothing much of value to say and certainly spends little time for the amount of money she spends. I had hoped he would be a welcome change for the USA’s troubles, instead it’s.exaggerated it.

    • truthseeker

      This never ends. I thought this kind of spending had to be approved by Congress. How do they get the money. She/he spent a total of Forty-five minutes, so what happened to the rest of the day. That is like a long lunch break.

        More of her spending ways. Went to LA to ride on a Navy Ship named after a woman and then went to the Kids Choice Awards with her kids. She probably paid for the clothes but how much to get her and the security and rest of the entourage there and back. They keep asking for more tax dollars and this is the way they spend them. The amount she spends on her trips could be better spent hiring a couple nurses for the VA. What scum our government has become.

        • wsurfs .

          WASTE, FRAUD, ABUSE and antiAmerican all rolled into one lump…!! That’s Michelle Obama..!! She has no class….She has no shame…!! I can guarantee you that Michelle did not pay for those clothes…WE DID..!!!

            I loved it. If only for the fact that we have just gone so far into creating a pedestal for the Blacks . I think of Oprah Winfrey who made Billions from the US of A and when she went and invested in these Black girls in Africa. People asked why not try to help our children in the Inner City (which was from the Black people) she stated that all they wanted was I Pods. The fact was that the Blacks here are not black enough for her and she spent 80 Million dollars for Two private schools in Africa.

            Spook’s don’t make any sense

          • Dolores Wieland

            It’s her money and her choice where to spend it. I agree with her Entitled Americans want IPads while Africaans want education, food, and clothing.

          • truthseeker

            Oh Please Dolores! If she just went to Feed and Cloth them that would make sense , but she didn’t. She spent 40 Million dollars on a Private all Black and all women private school. When asked about our inner city children she then said, ” Oh no! all they want is I Pods “. An additional 40 Million was spent on another Private School, that’s 80 Million dollars., so you see your blinded to the real truth. She made her money off us with her view on the Challenges in our Country. It is a slap in the face with her racist view on Black supremacy . If you got your head out of the sand and looked around you would see we have problems right here at home. A good example would be if you worked at McDonalds who was your employer and then went on the News on how bad Hamburgers are for you. What Oprah did is made a poor reflection on our Children as wanting and not needing anything. This is so far from the Truth, the Truth is America was not Black enough for her liking.

          • Dolores Wieland

            I definitely agree with you but my point is it is her money, she can do what she wants with it. I think she is racist and has failed the American people who made her a millionaire. I have said this in other posts so I guess I didn’t expound on that in this particular post.

      • James

        Typical fascist racist comments. As of 7/9/13 Mrs Obama had spent 72 days traveling. In Georges 8 years in office Laura spent 212 days traveling on our tax dollars but shes a white women from Texas so I guess that doesn’t count.

            That coon is being an asshole. Red Mann thinks if he messes with me long enough that I will pack his poop chute. it isn’t going to happen. I tried to explain to Red Mann that I don’t play his homo shit, but he doesn’t listen. That fucking jig, is under the impression that I am a young boy. You know, the kind he likes to molest. Red Mann is very sick. His thinking is fucked up. The only thing on his mind is little boy’s penis’s.
            I tried to explain to his black ass, that a lot of women, like his mother, fall into prostitution, to support their drug habits. Whereas he should have been either a spit or a swallow by his mother. But apparently some nigger was horny enough to fuck a junkie.

          • iLLuSioNaTi

            The real reason why he chose Red Mann as his moniker was to fool people about his politics before they read what he says. It should be Blue Mann.

            The LWNJ’s are always accusing Conservatives of being bigoted and intolerant, but as you have seen, Liberals are 10 time more guilty of bigotry and intolerance. Hypocrites, what more can I say.

        • rwp24382

          There’s a difference in the two comparisons. The press wanted to say when GWB and his wife went to their home in Texas, that was considered being on vacation. Most of Laura Bush’s travels were in this country to visit schools. Not having lavish vacations taking up 85 rooms in a luxury hotel for a month in a foreign country, for a two day stay herself. Even take separate jet trips for her and hubby to go to the same place.

          This is as much an abuse of taxpayer monies as the Clintons taking 12 to 1500 donors and friends on vacation for 2 weeks in China, back in the 90’s. This is what? Maybe the third luxury trip so far this year for the Obamas? They travel around more than the Royal family. And exactly what do we get for this abuse of taxpayer money? I see no benefits. They just like to act important and act like they are royalty.

          Liberals just don’t get it. These people are content in wasting money on themselves, yet tell all the surfs in the country of how they aren’t paying enough in taxes to let the moochers and slugs in the country not have to work.

          • iLLuSioNaTi

            It’s not being in disagreement that’s the issue, it’s the way you go about it, with acidic fervor and hatred in your heart. And FYI, your right to free speech only applies to public forums, not private ones paid for with private money. Just thought we should clear that one up for you. For example, if a Moderator here chose to boot you for any reason there’s nothing you can do about it. Just thought you might like to know that little factoid. Typically that only occurs on Liberal websites, but hey, conservatives are the intolerant one’s, right?

            I believe the article I was responding to, read above, was about Mrs. Obama and the cost of her foreign. I pointer out that Mrs Bush did a lot more foreign travel. Sorry the facts don’t sit well with you, typical of right wingers.

        They share that house with a lot of other people. It is their version of a Tenant housing project. It has been rumored that they are buying a House in Hawaii , but then it also has been rumored of a Divorce, better known as Palimony. I believe that house was once own by Magnum PI .

    • MARYANN33

      Nuvo rich act like this. One should not elect field negroes…It is a costly mistake as we now know. They cannot go back to the fields though because they are heading to Gitmo…as long as they live…Hopefully the trial will not let that be long. What a wonderful thing to rid the world of those two misfits.

  • Jim Skiman

    But wait we need to pay mrs obummer a salary! The IT does all this WORK for the USA and no compensation. Plus she is willingly in the same room with all of the pesants. How humiliating for craphouse queen! The way I see it is the left wing slimocrats were searching for the WORST two people to occupy the WH and it had to be a couple worse than Slick Willie and the Hildabeast, if that is possible.

  • thomasstewart

    Good Golly What Else Do Colored Folks Do When They Get “Free Money”?? We Are Colored “Rich Bitch”!! Plus I Have Never Been Proud To Be An American!! Remember That Take It Or Leave It On “The Dole” Statement!! God Bless America And The US Tea Party Patriots.

  • Sam W

    WHY should the American TAXPAYERS have to foot her bill? Let obamy foot it out of his salary. AND all those rooms? FOR WHAT? Gouging is what it is. Rub our noses into the mud because in theory she/it is first lady…….

    • paulette barrow

      @Sam,shes the 1st something alright but i would call it a lady

      • Dolores Wieland

        I wouldn’t call her a lady..not someone that disrespected the Queen of Engand

        • paulette barrow

          sorry it was a typo I meant wouldn’t,many even say shes a tranny,who knows

          • Dolores Wieland

            No one really knows if she is a tranny. I would never go that far unless I knew for sure. No different than when people pictured them as apes. I thought that was wrong and a disrespect of the office of President. Sorry for the late reply .

  • PWe72

    Hard to believe “himself” didn’t rush over to be with her just so he could get in a round on that fancy golf course.

    • disqus_PTSRm6p4kg

      do she has a guy friend or suppin

      • iLLuSioNaTi

        Probably a Trisexual SS agent.

  • ronpaynter

    When did we elect her to fly anywhere at our expense for any reason. This monkey faced bitch should go to her room or cage and stay there for the next year and a half. Who the hell does she think she is,the First Lady or something. Course ass Obama has no control over her and let’s her do whatever she wants. I guess there is nothing anyone can do to prevent this idiot from spending our money on boondoggles. She is a disgrace to all the former real First Ladies that had at least a little respect for the American people. Not with this scumbroad.

    Why are tax payers paying for a non governments employee to spend OUR money on personnel trips?

  • rusticman

    Hey it’s a POOR country they needed a kick in the pocket.. Ob’s been talking bout his bucket list, when the news people ask him questions he just says bucket! ,What you plan to do about the all the Mexican’s ,, (bucket) and so on.. Buck you OB & buck that son of yours too,,, Stevie Smith I would never watch that RACIST bucker ever on and Show EVER again,,,,,,,,, BUCKET BUCKET BUCKET!!!!

  • Fraginals5

    That is The Obama’s legacy: The administration that spent the more money in personal trips in the history of the U.S. On spring vacation she went to China with the girls. She always has an excuse to keep on traveling to our expense. Her contribution to the National debt is huge.

    • wsurfs .

      And Michelle’s contribution to our country is “-0 X infinity”….!!!!! Michelle Obama has NO SHAME…!!!

  • wsurfs .

    The madness NEVER stops with these two evil antiAmericans occupying our White House..! How about the girls right here in the good old USA who need an “education initiative”…!! WHAT ABOUT OUR AMERICAN GIRLS..!!!??? Michelle just needed another expensive-extravagant-over-the-top VACATION on Other’s People’s Money….OURS….!!!

  • Jr

    everyone knows that blacks know how to use the system did you think putting one in the white house was going to make a difference

  • cutterguy

    this ho needs to work the block til she pays the full bill. the tag for this trip doesn’t probably include what it cost to get there.

  • Shirley Ferrell Smith

    She doesn’t care because it is not her money. She has never impressed me. I remember when she gave a speech to a group of women, and one asked her a question she didn’t want to answer so she just walked out Why is there no limits when it comes to taxpayers money?.

    • cutterguy

      haven’t you heard? that’s not taxpayer money, it’s government money!

  • scott

    get this filthy welfare mooching ape headed nigg-r out of our white house and stop letting them rip off the tax payers,which surely isnt any nigg-rs

  • gpicha

    The f-ing she male needs to DIE. Don’t care how or by whom, just kill that fag she male soon!!

  • gpicha

    Just why do I have to pay for waht this fag does. Over a quarter of a million bucks, that is insane bullshite from the onigger clan, kill them all including the nigglets.

  • paulette barrow

    All the obamas know how to do good is spend money they didnt earn

  • pFeather

    Old Moochelle is stiffing us tax payers for all she can before we run her and worthless husband out of DC. The Queen Bee thinks she’s Marie Antoinette, off with her head.

  • Mys77

    This is just sickening…we have got to start putting restrictions on what these aholes in government are spending…. do they even have to travel at all…set up a web cam…be done with it! This is f….ridiculous!

    • Paul Joseph

      Also ho0w much “carbon foot print” does she make. Reduce your energy use Michelle

    • MARYANN33

      Congress and Senate will henceforth commence with business on Skype…And the will recieve no salaries..Let’s see who wants the job then???? Trash was elected. It is hard to overcome that event..Thank you OPRAH!!!!! Boycott her entirely.

  • MARYANN33

    They are terribly greedy and inconsiderate. She thinks she is the Queen. When they go to prison I wonder if they will consider Gitmo a 5 star prison…Bill them as said below is right. We have no responsibility to give to their foolish whims…They might stay home and try to pay their bill to us. Lock them up until they do.

  • MARYANN33

    Have you noticed they are above the law…We need to change that quickly..The new black attorney general will not be the way to change things…More of the same. Be sure to vote out all who voted her in. They both should have been gone so very long ago…They grew up on Al Sharpton and his ilk. Tragedy….It is like monkeys in dress clothes…still monkeys though.

  • RoseBrownlee

    HE/SHE/IT HAS NO “NO” RIGHTS TO TRAVEL ON TAX PAYERS MONEY.OBAMA’S BROTHER SAID THEY WERE SCHEMMERS,LAIRS AND CHEATS.BOTH OF THE OBAMA’S PROVE THAT TO MORE TRUE EVER DAY.BOTH SHOULD BE MADE TO PAY FOR WHAT THEY HAVE STOLE FROM AMERICA.JUST RESIGN AND GET OUT OF MY COUNTRY

  • And the reasons I am becoming an embarrassed American keep on coming!

  • PB92

    They do love to spend other peoples money.

  • James Maxwell

    I do not recall her being on any ballot that came up for the American People to vote on.
    What so called position did her dicktater wannabe grant her by his dicktater powers?
    Send them the bill and make them pay it, She is not on the government payroll in any
    capacity and has not authority granted by the U.S. Constitution to perform any task
    on behalf of the United States nor the American People.

  • Oingo Boingo

  • Dean

    Why are we paying for her to go anywhere? She is a wife. She is not part of the government and shouldn’t be speaking in any country. She needs to stay home and be a mother. No country except the USA and England even listen to women.

  • Steve Reed

    sounds like a waste of taxpayer dollars to me. How many teleprompters did they take with them. She is not smart enough to talk more than 10 minutes with the aid of a written speach pr teleprompter just like her moron husband.

  • wharfrat

    Congress gives money to the White House to use for travel, but I doubt if the worthless trip of the last “Lady” was in the budget,the Obamas and the Dems thumb their noses at the American people and Congress and dare any body to do anything about the abuse,the Pres.disrespects all laws,and goes around Congress and breaks any law he doesn’t like,and the ignorant Dem.leaders laugh it off and think it’s ok because it’s “their” man doing it,We The People have to call our Congressmen and demand something be done to stop it or nothing will be done,we want Obama Impeached but the House and Senate leaders aren’t willing to fight for our country,and want more off time to be at home,the Dems are shooting themselves in the foot by supporting their lawless leader,and will whine when they never win another election because of him..

    • iLLuSioNaTi

      The Fed is run by Oligarchs & Plutocrats who are slowly nullifying our rights by way of Global Corporations and Lobbyist! For decades there have been few if any Politicians that have represented the people or stood for the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Most of them are crony Kleptocrats that make laws to fulfill their personal agendas and that of the Illuminazis (Globalist of various stripes). Our elected officials are drunk with Power and pResident Odrama is no different. WAKE UP SHEEPLE! Go to this link for the truth my friends:

  • Burton Pauly

    This is what happens when people that only care for themselves, and their party want to go or do something whether needed or not. Your tax dollars just go into the abyss, and they could care less. Remember the democrats will never see a dollar of your taxes that they don’t want to spend for any thing they want. This just adds to the 6 plus trillion she and her husband have indebted the USA. So why would you vote for another big spender? Vote conservative…….

    Michelle will probably claim that the Obama’s were broke when they left the White House. What she really means is that the Obama’s broke the White House before they left.

  • BrooklynJoJo

    ATTENTION!!!! Everybody that is tired of all The Obama’s spending habits that cost hard working Americans, start emailing your senators, congress, governors, & let them know your tired of the government blowing the US money on whatever they please & then turn around and tell the American people how broke the US is. If we the people want change, start flooding the government with so many emails, phone calls & letters that they will have to start addressing all the issues we disagree with.
