According to USA Today, the presidential suite at the hotel is listed as $8,400 per night. Read More

Including China, I believe the count for Michelle rarely traveling outside the U.S. is at least 27 times since 2009. Could be more, I stopped counting at 27. Many of her trips included her daughters, her mother, and in some cases friends too.

And she considers it a “real treat” to take her daughters and her mother with her — a trip she’s making at considerable expense to taxpayers, although the White House refused to give a dollar figure.

White House pastry chef Bill Yosses is quitting, and partially blames first Lady Michelle Obama’s focus on ‘healthier’ eating.

Former first lady Laura Bush hired Yosses in 2007, but the Obamas brought a new attitude in 2009 that often frowns on fatty, decadent desserts.

‘I don’t want to demonize cream, butter, sugar and eggs,’ he told The New York Times, quipping that leaving the plum White House job was a ‘bittersweet decision.’ Read More
