“Italian luxury goods manufacturer VBH boasted yesterday that First Lady Michelle Obama had toted their $5,950 alligator manila clutch earlier this week while on a trip to Russia.
No way, said the White House, which countered that the First Lady was carrying an $875 VBH patent leather clutch.” ‘www.nydailynews.com’
I guess while people are losing their jobs, their homes, their futures, Michelle Antoinette will have them ‘eat cake’. It’s amazing the White House would insist on arguing a 900 dollar purse is acceptable while a 6000 dollar purse is ‘outlandish’. I don’t really care that much about the purse but it is simply another symbol, like flying to New York for a show, getting Sarkozy to open the stores in Paris, and 600 dollar tennis shoes while feeding the poor, that this woman is an arrogant, self-righteous elite who believes words are all that matters. I guess it would seem to be a family trait since Obama seems to act in exactly the same fashion.
