The Obama's may have sugar plums dancing in their heads about the upcoming 5,000,000$ annual vacation to Hawaii. Oh, I just learned what my health insurance monthly mortgage payment is this week. I guess it all works out.



Well with Christmas coming up the humble Obama family will head off the their 5,000,000$ Christmas vacation in Hawaii. Every time the first family goes on vacation there is a crap ton of security, travel and all sorts of super duper top secret stuff that has to happen. I'm sure they are thankful and it is time well spent.


The First Family of the United States have long drawn criticism over their fondness of travel, and it has kicked up a notch now that a new report reveals the fact that they have spent over $10 million a year in taxpayer money on vacations

One particularly expensive trip, which is expected to be repeated this year, was their annual Christmas holiday in Hawaii last year. That 2015 vacation, which has been the family’s tradition each year since taking office, cost nearly $5 million alone.

“The expenses cover items such as security, flights and hotel rooms for staff and U.S. Secret Service. They do not include the price of prepositioning ships and aircraft in the area or much of the communications costs,” The Washington Examiner explained

Trump won't draw a POTUS wage which will likely offset about 10% of Obama-family taxpayer funded holidays, if Trump stays in for 8 years.

5 million? Does that include security and drinks? I know presidents all get a vacation allowance but something seems to off here. If Obama is spending millions I wonder how much Trumps will cost.

Well, you have to compare this to the cost of other presidents' travel, including vacation. It can't be seen in a vacuum.

Yet we can pay $720 million a year because Melania wants to stay in NYC instead of the whitehouse. You buffoons only focus on the stuff that supports your viewpoints.

Oh well.. Let me get back to waiting for Trump to attack more people because he has thin skin on Twitter.

Give it a break. Trump will probably provide his own housing cost for his family. He will have little control over the Secret Service for the rest of his life no matter where they live.

Judicial Watch: Obama Family's 2015 Hawaii Vacation Cost Taxpayers $4,823,206.88

The article details the expenditures.

Guess we will have to wait and see about Trump's travel expenses.

Very good point. The middle east may have been better off. But you would have had to send HRC too.

Taxpayer money-5 million?!!- on Hawaii vacay? That actually straight up, full on pisses me off! Damn, man! I'm a teacher- I work with children every day, and it is HARD work, and I work my ass off and this year for the first time in a while I'm staying home for Xmas and I've been bummed about it.

So to realize that some of my hard-earned money is going to fund the Obama's 5 million dollar tropical vacation is absolutely maddening. Why do we allow this?!
