Obama Cost Taxpayers $2 Million So He Could Appear on Late-Night TV Last Night

It sure is nice that the President can jet across the country to appear on Late-Night TV for a few minutes at the drop of a hat. But what isn’t so nice is his little jaunt cost the taxpayers $2 million just in transportation costs alone. All so he could push his lies on the comedy show “Jimmy Kimmel, Live.”

Obama and his brood have spent at least a billion tax dollars for “vacations” in his six years in the White House. But his little quick trip to LA cost us all $2 Million.

In fact, get out your checkbook right now because the Democrat’s about to drop some $2 million of other peoples’ money for a few minutes on a late-night TV show.

This president is good with spending a lot on travel. He took the entire family, including grandma, to Alabama last weekend. And according to latest figures, the Obamas’ last three Christmas vacations in Hawaii have cost taxpayers more than $15.5 million just in transportation expenses.

…Judicial Watch reports, for example, that last December’s nine-hour-plus one-way Air Force One flight cost American workers $3,672,798.60 to get the Obama clan and staff to and from tropical sunshine. That’s about 802 times what the average American family spent on holiday season gifts last year.

By comparison, another Obama family vacation tradition, the annual August time-off on Martha’s Vineyard, was a real bargain, costing taxpayers only $400,666.30.

Air Force One is a luxury 747 complete with soundproof bedroom, shower and window blinds run by a remote control, so no president need bother pulling cords to darken his room. It costs about $206,000 per flight hour for the Air Force to operate the jumbo craft.

This guy and his family love to live high off the hog on we the people.

Here is the segment you all paid for…
