So what’s a former First Lady to do when California isn’t as sunny as she’d like? Sure, hop aboard a Falcon 900EX owned by Richard Branson and fly to Necker island.
Do we blame her for escaping the rains of California? After all, Michelle is still recovering from having Hillary’s parade rained on, literally and figuratively. Poor poor Michelle.
Reports are mixed if Barack was aboard the huge private jet with her – most say no, he was not seen. Others guess he took a separate plane out of Palm Springs, destination unknown. I don’t see Barack being anywhere without a golf course so Necker is probably not where he wants to be. Is he back in DC taking care of Sasha and walking the two dogs?
I will say, Necker is one incredible island. While I’ve not been invited on the island, we have spent enough time nearby on Tortola and Virgin Gorda to have sailed past Necker. Not a bad little place and hey, Branson started with nothing and made himself quite successful so he’s earned the right to spend his money however he so chooses. Michelle, not as much so lucky for her she has friends in high places.
The irony is not lost on me that Branson and President Obama talked much about climate change but Michelle figures flying the private jet for one wouldn’t cause that much damage to the environment. Now if only SNL would do a skit on that. Ha!
