Michelle Obama dons $6800 jacket to visit Queen

Political commentators said that Michelle Obama elected to spend so much money on a garment while so many in US are suffering financially.

London: Political commentators have vented their anger over the fact that Michelle Obama wore a jacket worth USD 6,800 to the pre-Olympics Opening Ceremony reception at Buckingham Palace on Friday.

Though the dazzling J Mendel jacket and skirt won critical acclaim from the style set, some pundits are furious that she elected to spend so much money on a garment while so many in the US are suffering financially, the Daily Mail reported.

A post on the Gateway Pundit blog read that the design ``cost more than the average American family makes in a month (USD 4,284).”

“She does this as Americans continue to suffer through a deep recession and record unemployment,” writer Jim Hoft said.
“Michelle feels your pain.”
