American Thinker, by Jeannie DeAngelis Posted By: Tianne- Fri, 01 13 2016 09:13:54 GMT Over the last 8 years, Michelle Obama has evolved into an exemplary world traveler. Compliments of the struggling U.S. taxpayer, the FLOTUS consistently indulges in at least five or six multi’million dollar vacations per year.
