Stay in Cambodia: For Just Under $243,000

What? Who cares about spending?Michelle Antoinette approves. No, that price is not simply a product of rampant inflation, it’s actually the best hotel deal the internet savvy Obama Administration was able to find for the First Lady’s two day trip to Siem Reap.

Even without the President joining her, Michelle’s staff knew she’d feel more at home staying at a golf resort, which made the five star Sofitel Angkor Phokeethra Golf and Spa Resort a no brainer for the cultural visit.It’s a hard knock life for the First Lady.

Unfortunately, the Obama Administration missed the little blurb on the hotel’s website offering accommodation from as low as €47 per night, as the ordeal for the First Lady’s two nights and extra 14 nights for her set up staff put the real cost to the taxpayers at $242,500.

Of course that $242,500 is a small price to pay for Michelle to have the chance to lecture another country’s citizens on their lifestyle.

Due to all of the starvation still leftover from the Khmer Rouge, Michelle decided to take them to task on girls’ education as opposed to their waistlines, offering scholarships to ten students to be paid not by her, or the United States, but by the Cambodian Education Ministry.

“I thought the United States would give scholarships to those students until they complete university, but that’s not (what happened),” Prime Minister Hun Sen told reporters. “I had strongly hoped, but she just came here to choose people and then (left) it to the Ministry of Education."

The golfing offered at the Sofitel Angkor Phokeethra Golf and Spa.Cambodia's Prime Minister went onto say, "Her mission is very good, but I suggest the United States should help completely and not play like this. It is just playing around. It is not good. What if she chose 300 students? It would be death. I don’t have that money to give.”

Oh yeah, all of the goodwill bought from this trip was sure worth it.
