"Easy come, easy go," said designer draped first lady Michelle Obama, as she casually blew off her recent 4 day trip to Marabella, Spain with 50 of her entourage which erased her husband's recent windfall Nobel Prize stipend!
According to DC insiders the first lady flew off in a huff after finding out
Barry was set to host an intimate birthday dinner of his own with fawning TV diva Oprah Winfrey, and 'very close' personal advisor Valerie Jarrett in Chicago after reading about Silvio Berlusconi's latest presidential perk....4 in a bed! (Ed. Note: Oprah is described as 'twice the woman Michelle is')
The Source said Michelle vowed to teach Barry a lesson, cashing in the Nobel Annuity which was earmarked, along with baby sitting fees earned by the two Obama kids for their college education, according to a statement by Barry pleading poverty just last week on The View.
Solomon Goldstein, proprietor of the downtown DC pawn shop, title loan, and paycheck lender "E-Z Cash & Stash' where Michelle made the deal, gave her $750,000 for the $1M Nobel Annuity, and another $50 for the Nobel statue which he promptly resold to Gordon Brown's wife on Ebay for $175.50 who said she was looking for something 'to cheer the old boy up since he's never won anything in his life!"
American taxpayers are picking up the estimated $150,000 round trip air fair on Airforce 2 and the Secret Service is staying MUM on who really pays for their added security , rooms and meals on the trip.
Michelle booked between 60-70 rooms at an average cost of $2500 per night
at the posh Villa Padierna Hotel for 'close friends.'
All meals are ala carte, and room service comes at a premium.
Preliminary costs estimated by the Government Accounting Office, (GAO) that is responsible for administering Government Waste have run the preliminary costs as follows:
*Food: $72,000 ($300X60 x 4 days)
*Champagne: $240,000 (120 btls x$500 per day x 4 days)
(Blanc de Noire '97)
*Cocktails: $ 4800 (2 drks pp x60 x$10 x 4 days)
*Room Service: $24,000 (60 x $100 x 4 days) (miscellaneous snacks)
*Gratuity: $90,000 (18% for parties over 6)
*Gifts: $15 (Tee Shirt for Barry)
Approx. Total: $736,815
The GAO said the final tally won't be available for months due to figuring
the VAT, the current exchange rate, and 'incidentals' purchased as 'essential' by the First Lady during the brief 'get away.'
Meanwhile the first lady, wearing an off the shoulder wrap while strolling down town was mobbed by Spanish football fans who were under the assumption she was Lawrence Taylor, the former NY Giants Linebacker.
