Distinguished visitors to the Bavarian capital!
Former first lady Michelle Obama (59) is currently in Munich and enjoying the imperial autumn weather before she goes to the “ Bits & Pretzels “-fair occurs.
Ex-President’s wife Barack Obama (62) landed in Munich around midnight on Sunday, traveling from Mallorca. The Obamas have often been spotted on the Balearic island. It wasn’t until the beginning of September that Michelle met friends for lunch in the luxury port of Puerto Portals.
Now she’s swapping paella for pretzels! After arriving in a private jet, Michelle checked into a luxury hotel in Munich.
Before her speech, selected “Bits & Pretzels” partners can meet Michelle for a “meet and greet” with a photo. At 6 p.m. she will give a lecture at the fair and: “give insights into her career about determination, community and personal conviction,” as the organizers say. Michelle Obama also wants to “encourage her listeners to embrace their unique strengths and overcome self-doubt.”
Michelle and Barack Obama recently at the US Open. From 2009 to 2017, Barack Obama was US President and Michelle was First Lady
A power speech that the ex-First Lady paid handsomely for!
According to BILD information, Michelle Obama receives a fee of around 700,000 euros for the one-hour lecture. This means she has caught up with her husband in terms of salary. Barack Obama is expected to collect a similar amount for speaking engagements.
Highest security level
Wherever the Obamas appear, there is the highest level of security! As BILD learned, Secret Service employees dismantled the exhibition center and even checked the shafts.
It is a star visit for which (almost) a script was written: every step, every path is planned down to the minute. Every employee who encounters Michelle (e.g. the elevator boy) has been screened beforehand. In the event of unplanned deviations from the “script”, cancel!
There was originally talk of a visit to the Oktoberfest, but according to BILD information, Michelle Obama’s team decided against it for security reasons. As BILD learned, Michelle is supposed to visit a well-known delicatessen restaurant to get into the Oktoberfest spirit.
By the way: Only one person has a larger team than Michelle Obama. According to BILD information, the President of Botswana, Mokgweetsi Eric Keabetswe Masisi (61), is coming to the trade fair with eight vehicles, outdoing the ex-first lady.
Michelle Obama, who was First Lady of the USA for eight years (until 2017), is not only a prominent personality but also a successful entrepreneur. Together with her husband she founded the production company “Higher Ground”, which produces documentaries for Netflix. She is also a sought-after author and activist who advocates for education, health and social justice.
