Yes, we have had Spain and India and Paris and Senegal and Aspen; now we will have China.
First lady Michelle Obama, her two daughters, Malia and Sasha, and her mother touched down Thursday in China for what’s being touted as a weeklong feel-good tourist event, amid increasing murmurs back home about U.S. taxpayers having to foot the bill.
Mrs. Obama is supposed to use her visit for soft diplomacy only, and shy from the more controversial topics that plague U.S.-China relations, namely human rights and economics. No reporters accompanied the family on the trip.
“The nature of her visit is really quite different,” deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes told reporters ahead of the trip. “What the first lady really brings is the power of her own story, the power of American values.” [More Obama frivolity here]
“Quite different,” insofar as … well, just quite different, dammit! Look, you try sitting around in a dinky 9X9 White House cubbyhole making this $#!t up! It ain’t easy, bubo!
Anyway, I’m not nearly as concerned as most people about Michelle and the family traveling to China on the taxpayers’ dime Visa Card. They could’ve sent Joe Biden and when he got back the Chinese would own South Dakota.
Mrs. Obama will tour the Forbidden City today, which is kind of like San Francisco’s historic Chinatown except without illegals. She will also get to meet another first lady who lives lavishly at American taxpayers’ expense and doesn’t care.
Hang in there, people, only 1037 days to go.
