There’s nothing Michelle Obama has loved more about being first lady than spending millions of tax dollars on her own lavish vacations. Unfortunately for her, however, her free ride is about to be over.

Now, the total cost of the Obama family’s 2015 trip to Hawaii has been released, and the numbers are shocking. CNS News reported that the Obamas spent $4,823,206.88 on their 2015 vacation to Hawaii. This marked the eight straight year that the Obamas headed to Hawaii, where they  have spent a whopping $85,029,819 in tax dollars on themselves.

This comes as the Obamas are in Hawaii for their final Christmas of Barack’s presidency. Their latest vacation is scheduled to end on January 3, at which time the family will have spent 17 days at the Kailua mansion they are renting.

The costs of the Obamas’ vacations goes far beyond just their family, as they must also pay for their large entourage of Secret Service agents and reporters to join them. Last year, they spent $245,993.12 on rooms near the Marine Corps base at Kaneohe Bay for the Secret Service. The Obama administration also purchased rooms at the Moana Surfrider resort on Waikiki Beach and the Ala Moana Hotel, which cost a total of $40,249.28 and $671,895.99, respectively.

Throughout their time in Hawaii, the Obamas have dined at some of the most expensive restaurants in the state. The president himself has spent most of his vacation playing golf with his friends at extravagant courses.

“The Secret Service and the Air Force are being abused by unnecessary travel,” Judicial Watch president, Tom Fitton, argued. “Unnecessary presidential travel for fundraising and luxury vacations on the taxpayers’ dime would be a good target for reform for the incoming Trump administration.”

This is why it’s so refreshing that President-Elect Donald Trump has said he won’t be taking any vacations during his time in office.

    You get a wage like everyone else. Spend it on your luxuries. Taxpayers do not pay for that. Who the heck do they think they are. Taxpayers do not own money trees. Come on people. Get real.

    They think they are entitled just like the rest of his MUSLUM army he brought into this country.
    This country will be in a war as soon as the BASTARD gets out of office. Or shortly there after.

    Make them pay for some of those expenses. These are vacations that the ordinary American citizens have to pay for, why not the Obama’s. That is a waste of taxpayer money and they have the funds to pay for a portion of those expenses. If they can’t pay now let it come out of his pension payments on a monthly basis until it has been paid off.

    I swear, I’m ready to file a lawsuit against my own government for the waist full spending of Tax payer $$$. This is RIDICULOUS SPENDING. Anyone who thinks it’s OK, must be crazy. OK so yes we must protect our president. BUT does it have to be on such a grand scale ? And why are we footing the bill for his dining out and Golf? There should be limits on shit like this. And Trump already refusing both salaries and paid vacations is 1 hell of a great start.

    the American people should NOT have to put up tax dollars so that the president can take vacations…if he wants to go on vacation, fine, but he has to pay for it, he is getting $450,000 a year, so he has plenty money to do that…i suffered a head injury in a motorcycle accident 31 years ago, i have never been to Hawaii and now with my handicap, i don’t see that as a reality in the future…and he has gone there in each of the past 8 years!..that is just a bunch of pure BULLSHIT!..he is working for the American people, if we can’t take a vacation like that, why in the hell are we putting up the funds so that he can…and i’m going to repeat this, it’s not just once, but every year he has been president

    Who approves these expenses? Isn’t there a system of requisition and approval before this money is spent? Is there not a limit of vacation expenses that we have to pay for? No, why not???

    Atrocious!!! This kind of lavish abuse should NOT be paid by taxpayers!!!
    His vacation should not be paid by US !! He should pay for his family expense out of HIS OWN pocket, which is deep enough already from his corruption!!
