From Tahman Bradley:
Reports out of Colorado that First Lady Michelle Obama and the First Tweens are skiing this weekend at the Vail Ski resort in Colorado.
The White House tells ABC News that the first lady and close friends are chaperoning their children on a ski trip.
This isn’t the first time the first lady has gone on holiday without the president. Mrs. Obama and daughter, Sasha, traveled to Spain last August while the Obamas’ other daughter, Malia, was away at camp. That trip drew criticism from some who thought the vacation was a bit too posh during these rough economic times. FLOTUS, Sasha and close friends stayed at a luxurious resort in Marbella.
"While many of us are struggling, the First Lady is spending the next few days in a five-star hotel on the chic Costa del Sol in southern Spain with 40 of her ‘closest friends,’" Andrea Tantaros opined in the New York Daily News at the time.
The Vail Daily reports a motorcade of about a dozen vehicles, including local and state law enforcement traveled from Eagle County Regional Airport to Vail Friday night.
