Ex-President Obama now spends his time frolicking on luxurious beaches and hobnobbing with the rich and famous. His lifestyle has grown so extravagant that even Democrats are becoming repulsed by it.
“These trips are like the lifestyles of the rich and famous,” Democratic strategist Pat Caddell told Fox News. “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…”
Liberals spent eight years pretending that Obama was some sort of “everyday Joe”, a regular guy who looked out for the working man. The reality, however, is that Obama is one of the most elitist presidents that we’ve ever had.
Living in the White House is challenging. It’s not odd that the Obama family desires to relax, what’s strange is that is that their months-long luxury fest has followed an outlandish itinerary. The Obamas live like they’re A-list celebrities rather than a political family.
“I think every time Obama opens his mouth, the fair question is: Which billionaire’s paradise island did he do it from? When is he going to do anything to help people other than enrich himself?” Caddell asked. “How can he possibly be doing things? How do you do things from Marlon Brando’s island? It’s in stark contrast to Carter.”
Obama seems to have abandoned his party in an attempt to join the one percent. Not only is jaunting from one billionaire’s playhouse to another, he’s also milking his fame for huge payouts. Remember, the ex-president charges upwards of $400,000 for speaking fees and he has a $16 million book deal.
“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,’” said Dr. David Michael Smith of the Houston Socialist Movement. “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.”
Party on, Obama. It’s all you ever wanted to do anyway.
