It’s good to know that our First Couple are truly sympatico and down with those who can’t afford the basics because they’ve lost their jobs in the Obama recession. Especially those who, unable to buy luxuries, cling to their God, their guns, their religion. Regular Americans, in other words.
From the Daily News, the White House sets the story of a $5,950 purse straight:
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.
Only $875. Truly a woman of the people, for all good Socialist Workers to emulate. All hail Comrades Barack and Michelle.
