The Obama’s 13-year-old daughter Malia is taking a spring break respite from the tough life in the White House, cooling her heels this week in Mexico.
Although the country is on the U.S. Department of State’s website as among the most dangerous on the planet her parents felt secure in allowing their young daughter to travel. Never mind that Mexico is on the same list with Afghanistan, Pakistan, Sudan. Iraq, Libya and Somalia and her father‘s own federal offices tell Americans to “delay non-essential travel“ to the country. The list was updated last month.
But why worry? Malia and her entourage of school friends are well protected — guarded by a team of 25 taxpayer-funded U.S. Secret Service agents, as well as Mexican police.
Doesn’t that knowledge warm your cockles?
