It was nice that Oprah Winfrey and Mrs. Obama were able to get together.
But why couldn't Oprah taxi to Kahului Airport, fly first class to Honolulu and take a taxi over to Kailua for the visit? It might have cost less than $1,000, and if they talked about government or weight loss then maybe Mrs. Obama's office could reimburse Oprah as a consultant.
But, oh no, Mrs. Obama had to come over to Maui with the big cargo plane, numerous black SUVs, the Secret Service and all of the resulting disruption.
The cost had to be $100,000 or more. Come on, ladies, stop thinking of yourselves and think about us, you know, the taxpayers.
