SEE WHEN YOU MAKE BOGUS CHARGES OF RACISM about portraying Michelle Obama as Marie Antoinette, or Barack Obama as Louis the XVI, you don’t get the traction you used to get with bogus charges of racism. Instead you get news stories that note:

The First Lady has been criticised after taking high-profile holidays abroad which required a heavy security detail.

In December, she and her husband, along with their children, took a $4million vacation on Hawaii which saw large parts of Kailua cordoned off for security reasons.

And in 2010, Mrs Obama provoked anger in the U.S. after going on vacation with her two daughters, Malia and Sasha, in Spain. The U.S. President came under fire over the preparations for his 50th birthday celebrations – including a private dinner for which couples were charged up to $35,800.

In the old days, of course, charges of racism were so toxic that they created a useful brush-back effect, discouraging people from talking at all. But those days are long gone, as the currency has been inflated to the point where it has lost all value.
