And Mamie Eisenhower had to shell out the salary for her personal
secretary from her husband’s salary.

There has NEVER been anyone in the White House at any time who has
created such an army of staffers whose sole duties are the
facilitation of the First Lady’s social life. One wonders why she
needs so much help, at taxpayer expense. (I’m wondering why there
are no guidelines or restraints for this and other activities
concerning our government officials and their kin.)

and “First Hairstylist” Johnny Wright, 31, both of whom
traveled aboard Air Force One to Europe …
