Two of Michelle Obama’s floral outfits ring in at 23 times the average Cuban’s annual salary

While out gallivanting in communist Cuba and rubbing elbows with its despot leader Raul Castro, the first lady sported some fancy threads.

They are so fancy, their value amounts to 23 times the average annual salary of the oppressed citizens of the island nation, according to the Washington Free Beacon.

The cost of the two floral dresses worn by Michelle Obama and analyzed by the Beacon, one that she wore on arrival and another she donned Monday evening, cost a grand total of $6,680.00.

Compare that to the meager average annual salary of a Cuban in 2014 at 7,008 pesos, or $288, the Beacon reported.

Perhaps President Obama needed to focus more on that in his talks with Castro and less on baseball.

Yesterday, President Obama made history. For the first time ever, Air Force One touched down in Havana, Cuba. Click the link the bio to see his first day in photos. #CubaVisit ????
