    If Obama has a campaign event and a official event the govt pays for the travel. If the event is just for campaign he can pay for it from campaign funds. Do you expect someone on a government salary to pay for events that is why you have donors and a party infastructure. He isn't using government money. The media is making a scandal out of nothing. He is supposed to pay for his own trips as a minister when going abroad to speak for israel. This is insane. Do you think u.s government officials pay for their trips abroad. Do you think u.s senators pay for the trips to give speeches abroad. It either comes from government funds or campaign funds. I don't see the story here. His kids expenses weren't paid for by the donors. The media is also obsessed with his wife. We get it you think she is evil. Enough already did she give away gaza to iran like the great livni did so southern israel can get rained on with rockets. Bibi's wife isn't the problem.
