Michelle Obama today faced a fresh wave of attacks over her lavish break in Spain with 40 friends, which is likely to cost U.S. taxpayers a staggering £50,000 a day.
The First Lady has been lambasted for her extravagance at a time when the economy is still struggling. One blogger went so far as to brand her a modern-day Marie Antoinette.
And her critics will be further annoyed when they learn that the president's wife had a Spanish beach closed off today so that she, her daughter and their entourage could go for a swim.
Spanish police cleared off a stretch of beach at the Villa Padierna

It probably costs taxpayers that much a day no matter where she is.
Biggest non-issue of the week to get angry about.

Suprissingly it dosnt seem to bother me. Most Presidents wives go on trips. These trips are exspensive because of her security needs. Let her have her fun, I knwo if I were "first man" I would be spending all kinds of your money
