Probably not since the days of the Pharaohs or the more ludicrous Roman Emperors has a head of state travelled in such pomp and expensive grandeur as the President of the United States of America.

Here you go, Anderson. Another story to debunk. CNN must cover for the president at all cost. Get those investigative reporters out of mothballs.

Oh, and by the way, have you been able to uncover some trip she is taking wasting tax payers money yet? I didn’t think so.
Are the Obamas going into exile? I’m beginning to wonder. Better check on that, Andy.
