First lady Michelle Obama helped give her final state dinner at the White House on Wednesday, this time to celebrate Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi.
The Obama family has made us pay for vacations, Obama’s golf rounds and now we are paying for a rose-gold chain mail gown.
That wasn’t the only insult committed to the American taxpayer from the state dinner, according to the U.K. Daily Mail. Michelle Obama had to have it custom-made by Atelier Versace. In other words, that gown probably costs more than your car.
And this is the first family that’s telling us constantly about the haves and the have nots? About income inequality? About how we can all do without yachts and private jets? And here she is, at a state dinner, wearing rose-gold chain mail. Nice.
It’s time that our money is stopped being wasted on things like this.
