Michelle Obama Smeared as Shopaholic
Right Wingers resorting to peddling tabloid rumors against First Lady.
In a recent National Enquirer article, Michelle Obama is accused of being an “out of control spender” — splurging $10 million in "taxpayer money" on ritzy vacations, wild shopping sprees and costly massages. The article also says that her husband is “furious,” but can’t curb her spending.
London’s notoriously unreliable (and Obama-hating) The Daily Mail first put the National Enquirer story in play, quoting the tabloid’s unnamed sources who denounced the First Lady’s “disgusting” behavior saying, “The vacations are totally Michelle’s idea. She’s like a junkie.”
Other far-right blogs have since linked to the Daily Mail’s article, effectively hyping the National Enquirer’s gossip.
Surely, this appears to be another right-wing tactic. But read the article and decide for yourself. http://www.nationalenquirer.com/michelle-obama-disgusting-10-million-dollar-spending-spree-vacation
