First Lady Michelle Obama has warned that the sequester could negatively impact seniors and cut food stamps, but one thing it doesn’t seem to have affected is the White House travel budget.

Keith Koffler at White House Dossier:

First Lady Michelle Obama is staying Monday evening in the $3,300-per-night Princess Grace suite of Dublin’s Five-Star Shelbourne Hotel, according to Irish press reports, adding some credence to accusations she is in the city for a quick vacation at taxpayer expense.

Michelle jetted to Dublin Monday afternoon Irish time after a brief stop in Belfast with President Obama, who is in the city for the two-day G-8 Summit.

The White House is billing Michelle’s trip to Dublin as having diplomatic significance, but her itinerary suggests otherwise. She and her daughters will visit the Trinity College library to explore President Obama’s Irish family roots, attend a performance by the world-famous Riverdance troupe, and visit the Wicklow Mountains national forest.

Who’s booking these getaways? The IRS? This might explain why some White House staffers are rumored to have been spotted wearing “you much be Irish, cuz my hotel bill is Dublin” t-shirts.

From the Irish Independent:

No expense has been spared in catering for the comforts of Mrs Obama and her party. It is understood she will stay in the luxurious €2,500-a-night Princess Grace suite.

It is understood a total of 30 rooms in the five-star, 265-bedroom hotel, have been booked for the visit of Mrs Obama and her entourage.

Expect the White House to also claim this to be a “great bang for the buck.”
