Fox News’ Brit Hume thinks he’s found some clues as to why the press weren’t invited to tag along on Michelle Obama’s trip to China this week with her mother and two daughters. According to the U.K. Daily Mail:
Michelle Obama and three of her family members are staying in a $8,350-per-night Beijing presidential suite, but despite a 24-hour butler and other perks that come with the lodging, her entourage has inconvenienced ‘pretty much everyone’ and made the hotel staff ‘fed up,’ a well-placed hotel staffer has told MailOnline.
… the Obamas’ stay has already affected staff and guests at the hotel, with the Westin front-desk veteran alleging that Mrs. Obama’s mother Marian Robinson has been ‘barking at the staff since she arrived.’

@brithume At least UK still has a free & independent press. We won 't see this story in the US press.

@brithume So they "can't wait for this to be over," huh? Now they know how a lot of us feel.

@brithume Will really be curious to see if any media outlet will cover the cost of this, another boondoggle Obama trip, in the coming days.

.@brithume It's indeed difficult enough to justify taxpayers funding the "non political" vacay but to fund the nonelected ma-in-law?
