There’s nothing more beautiful than watching the left eating its own and now it’s time for dear leader Barry Obama to come under fire from his brethren due to his sizzling, never ending luxury vacations. Truth be told, after Barry did such a wonderful job during his 8 year tenure in the White House, some R&R is to be expected, right?
Turning the Middle East into a pandemonium, manufacturing a refugee crisis which basically destroyed Europe’s already fragile balance and doubling the national debt is not an easy job to do, not even for a hard core leftist. And now, his fellow DEMs are becoming increasingly disturbed by former president’s actions after leaving the White House. Apparently, Barry’s endless tour of top notch tourist resorts and retreats is starting to annoy social justice warriors, leftist activists and garden variety Democrats alike. It is perfectly understandable for a fresh out the White House former POTUS to go out and YOLO so to speak, but the level of high life Barry Obama is currently enjoying is a little bit too much, even for dear leader’s minions.
The thing is, Barack Obama’s level of luxury boasted during his vacations is unprecedented according to travel experts contacted by Fox News. In the 6 months that passed since Barry vacated the White House for The Donald, he visited the Four Seasons in Bali, where a room will cost you at least $2000/night, Marlon Brando’s private island, exclusive private residences/islands in the Pacific owned by various billionaires and so on and so forth. To quote the owner of a luxury travel agency and obviously a travel expert, Kendra Thornton respectively from Royal Travel:
“These are some of the most luxurious travel destinations in the world. Many of our clients spend tens of thousands of dollars or more to stay at these resorts, which cater to the most discriminating and demanding guests. For example, Necker Island has a nightly price tag of $80,000. Anyone who stays at these properties does so because they want the best of the best.”
“These trips are like the lifestyles of the rich and famous.”
“I think the Bernie Sanders wing of the party, when they see President Obama, whom they instinctively want to defend being the corporatist president, I think it makes the base uneasy,”
Basically, the left is decrying their former hero’s departing from the base of the party, and it’s not just vacations either. Barry also made a lot of money via multi-million dollars book deals (70 million) plus he cashed in big via hefty fees for speeches, paid by big names on the Wall Street, just like Bill and Hillary Clinton did back in the day. The “modern” left can’t believe its eyes how Barry is now joining the fabled one percent, you know, those darn’ millionaires and billionaires to quote uncle Bernie (a millionaire himself by the way).
Dr. David Michael Smith of the Houston Socialist Movement was quoted as saying about former president’s lavish lifestyle:
“Obama is not as wealthy or as conservative as Trump, George W. Bush, or George H.W. Bush, but he enjoys what used to be called ‘the lifestyle of the rich and famous.I am not surprised by Obama’s several recent foreign vacations. As president, he disappointed millions of supporters who hoped he would be a strong advocate for working-class people.”
This is the arrogant hypocrisy of liberals on full display. Barry will continue to globe trot around the world like a rock star, feeding off all the lost sheep who blindly follow his type, while spewing forth more America hating divisive messages from his pie hole. Why it took two terms of this miscreant for America to get it right, is a mystery to many.
