Off The Record: Greta Takes On the First Family's Lavish Spending

In Greta Van Susteren’s Off the Record commentary tonight, she took on the First Family for setting a poor example.

After a two-week vacation, the White House sent out a press release saying that First Lady Michelle Obama will be staying in Hawaii.

The total cost of sending Air Force One to pick up Mrs. Obama and bring her back to D.C.: an estimated $800,000.

It is reportedly part of her birthday gift from the president. But as Greta noted, it’s the American taxpayers who are footing that bill. “It’s lavish. Is that a good message to send to Americans right now? I think not.”
