UNITED STATES First Lady Michelle Obama, who is on a private trip to Spain with friends, is catching some flak for taking her “private” trip to Spain with her nine-year-old daughter Sasha. Fox News reported that the State Department had issued a travel warning on its site stating that “racist prejudices could lead to the arrest of Afro-Americans who travel to Spain”. But the warning was removed from the site on Monday, two days before Michelle left for Spain.New York Daily News writer Andrea Tantaros compared Michelle Obama to a “modern-day Marie Antoinette” for taking such a costly vacation when so much of the country is suffering to make ends meet. White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs told reporters that the Obamas would pay for their own personal expenses, as would their friends.
