Can someone who speaks Cantonese (which we think this is) translate the voiceover in this clip? Some of us have had a little Mandarin, and can pick out a few words here and there, and it’s not good at all for Michelle Antoinette.
The hundreds of thousands of dollars she wasted to take 40 of her closest personal friends on a spare-no-expense excursion to Spain, to eat in royal palaces, play all day on the beach, and live high on the hog while tens of millions of Americans are out of work, deciding which day this week they can afford to eat. No such tough decisions for Michelle Antoinette. It’s champagne wishes and caviar dreams every day, baby.
We’ve said many times before that Michelle Antoinette is the sword of Damocles for this administration.
She is going to do something, at some point in time, that crosses a psychological line with the vast majority of Americans. It has not happened YET, but the Spanish trip came precariously close.
No, at some point in the future, before they are out of the White House, Michelle Antoinette is going to say or do something that is a perfect embodiment of the contempt the Obamas have for regular Americans. It’s going to be something she won’t even realize is wrong, but it’s going to go down in history as a “Let them eat cake” total disregard for the suffering of millions…while she parties like it’s 1999 every day she’s in the people’s house.
It’s going to be like that moment at the end of Cruel Intentions, when the Verve Pipe plays, and the spoiled, nasty, hateful little girl who’d hidden behind a carefully manufactured and PR-managed facade was finally exposed for who she really was…and it all just came crashing down around her.
There’s a scene like this in Dangerous Liaisons too, which Cruel Intentions was inspired by. Glenn Close, as the Marquess, goes to the Opera in all her finery and is loudly booed by everyone there. No longer do they call her a “fashion icon”. No longer are they afraid of her, or cater to her in bowed sycophancy. No, they give her the boos she deserves.
And there is never any going back to how things used to be for these would-be “royals”.
Just ask HRH Princess Caroline of Kennedy what it feels like for her to walk around today, after being exposed for the clod that she is during her disastrous 2008 power grab for the Senate, compared to what it was like when she still was oooh-ed and aaah-ed over.
It’s a bittersweet symphony indeed.
