Let’s just get the MSNBC headline out of the way right now: Racist Beijing Westin hotel employee lies about Michelle Obama and mother

From the UK 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 sumptuous pad at the Westin Beijing Chaoyang hotel – its website calls the room ‘an oasis of comfort – is a 3,400-square-foot masterpiece including a private steam room, ‘corner sofas with silk pillows,’ and in-room dining for six.

But 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.’
[…]
‘We can’t wait for this to be over, to tell you the truth,’ he said in a sudden hush. ‘We entertain many important people here, but this has been, I think, very different.’

A spokesperson for Mrs. Obama declined to comment.

If only reporters had been allowed access during FLOTUS’ trip they could have quickly put to rest some of these nasty rumors. Or is that why they weren’t invited along?

Michelle Obama took her kids and mother are along for the trip because apparently her office said they didn’t want to offend the tradition-rich people of China with a non-multigenerational visit. Those WH press offices can be really creative when they have to be.

Update:

In China, FLOTUS extolled freedom of speech and freedom of religion. Nice, but it would have packed more of a credibility punch if her husband’s administration wasn’t back home battling nuns in court and the IRS hadn’t been targeting and attempting to silence conservative groups.
