Media Covers Up 2.5 Million Tax Dollars For Obama 13-Year-Old Daughter Vacation

The AFP, the Huffington Post and other websites have scrubbed a report about first daughter Malia Obama’s school trip.

On Monday, the AFP reported that Obama’s daughter was on a school trip along with a number of friends and 25 Secret Service agents. The story was picked up by Yahoo, the Huffington Post, and the International Business Times, as well as UK publications like the Daily Mail and the Telegraph and other overseas publications like The Australian.

But on Monday night, the story had been removed from those sites .The AFP page for the story now links to a story titled “Senegal music star Youssou Ndour hits campaign trail,” as does the Yahoo page. The Huffington Post page now links directly back to the Huffington Post homepage. The Daily Mail, Telegraph, and Australian stories now lead to 404 error pages, reading “page not found.” The International Business Times story also links to the IBT homepage, though a version of the original story still exists online.

A spokesperson at the White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

UPDATE: Kristina Schake, Communications Director to the First Lady, emails to confirm this was a White House demand. “From the beginning of the administration, the White House has asked news outlets not to report on or photograph the Obama children when they are not with their parents and there is no vital news interest. We have reminded outlets of this request in order to protect the privacy and security of these girls.” (Oh, I guess this statement makes this little 2.5 million dollar kid’s caper okay.)

  1. All this guised racism against our president worries me. Racism is just another indication of the latent antisemitism that’s out there.

  2. Well I think this article IS true. He has no problem spending your tax money on his kids. Trust me. He is enjoying every bit of this.

  3. the vacation of the president, teh campaign of the president should come from his pocket, hence the word vacation he is not on the job, that i shouldnt pay for it, he should not be spending money that i dont have on a vacation i wont take from my pocket,he is paid a fairy large salary, he shold use it, not my money

  4. hey, everybody needs to go on vacation. and if it cost more to send a first daughter on vacation, that means she can’t go? its not like she went on a 25 mil vacation, rather she went on a reg vacation, but cost more for security risks. lets not pick on every stupid thing just because you dont like his policies, it makes us look like dumb belligerent ppl.
