From their ivory tower, we frequently hear Barack and Michelle Obama lecturing Americans on income equality, as if this pair knows anything about sacrifice, as they jet set around the globe on the taxpayer dime.
So when Michelle Obama landed in Africa, her hypocrisy was on full display yet again, showing the world exactly what it means to be apart of the elite 1% ruling the world. The First “Lady” was supposed to be touring the poor country of Africa, in affirmation of Obama’s pledge to increase education for the young women there, and end the cycle of poverty that has ravaged that part of the world. That all sounded well and wonderful, until she de-boarded the plane in Morocco, wearing an article of clothing that costs a staggering 60 percent of what a Moroccan family makes in an entire year.
The floral wrap adorning the First “Lady” was from designer Proenza Schouler, which goes for a whopping $1,750 online. She would then go on to lecture the Moroccan people about poverty, while wearing a dress worth five times what the average citizen makes in an entire year.
Michelle then took to social media, explaining her reasons for visiting the country of Africa:
“Sometimes the problem is resources,” the first lady wrote. “Unlike in the U.S., in many countries, parents are required to pay school fees and cover the cost of books and uniforms, and a large number of families simply can’t afford to send their daughters to school.”
Unreal. It just goes to show how far removed the Obamas are when it comes to relating with the common person. Even after almost eight years in the White House, they still don’t have a freaking clue about how their actions affect those around them. What a national disgrace this woman is!
