During Obama’s Earth Day speech, he assailed Republicans on global warming.

“The irony of using Air Force One for an unnecessary jaunt to discuss global warming aside, these documents show that taxpayers are being gouged for President Obama’s abuse of the perks of office,” said Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton. “Taxpayers should not be forced to foot the bill for his continual savaging of political opponents.”

Using FOIA’s and subsequent lawsuits, Judicial Watch discovered the Obamas and Bidens have spent more than $40 million in taxpayer dollars on trips since 2009.
