Lavish vacations are the hallmark of the Obama family in the White House. Even the Vice President has joined the gravy train, spending almost half a million dollars for a stay at the Paris Intercontinental Hotel.
Last year one of the Obama girls went to Mexico for spring break. This year it appears both girls and maybe Michelle are headed to Atlantis on Paradise Island in the Bahamas for a little getaway. Breitbart reports:
Breitbart subsequently confirmed President Barack Obama’s daughters’ trip with other sources. Both the White House and the Atlantis resort declined to confirm the report or comment, but another guest provided a photograph of Sasha and Malia at the resort.
…It is unclear at this time if first lady Michelle Obama is also at the resort, or if she is planning to join her daughters there.
Sasha and Malia both attend Sidwell Friends School, which is currently on its spring break. That break continues through Friday. It is unclear how long the first daughters will be staying in the Bahamas, or what the cost will be to taxpayers.
Earlier this month, the White House canceled public tours as a result of the recent budget sequester, citing Secret Service staffing costs.
Only the best for this family! Yes, they put the “first” in First Family.
