It’s another day in the life of being Barack Obama post-presidency, which means another all-expenses paid vacation, sparing no luxury along the way for him and his family. All of the Obamas, including their two daughters who they haven’t been seen with since moving out of the White House, just landed in Indonesia where they planned to stay at the super ritzy Four Seasons Resort Bali to the tune of $2,500 per night. However, no sooner did they land that Barack forgot he wasn’t president and his trip just came to an abrupt halt.
With the way the Obamas have been living life since leaving office, it seems as though they only put the eight years in as president to afford them a full retirement of rest and relaxation after. Without a doubt, Barack Obama enjoyed the power he had while in office which was just a perk to the life he’s now able to enjoy now on the taxpayer’s dime and his comfortable pension.
Barack has a hard time letting go of the power he enjoyed for two terms and relinquishing the position of Commander-in-Chief to his nemesis, President Donald Trump. He’s proved this by forming a “Shadow Government” to follow the president around and keep tabs on him and try to control his every political move to be in compliance with what Democrats want. That doesn’t work for Trump and neither do Barack’s occasional attempts to step in as president where he doesn’t belong.
It’s bad enough that the Obama family is using taxpayer money from Barack’s severance package to rub their glamours vacations in everyone’s faces. We wish that they would just go away, but keep putting themselves at the center of attention instead of slipping into obscurity where they belong. Worse yet, Barack tends to forget that he’s not the president anymore when he stops all the fun and frivolity of his trip to make this sickening statement about the man who actually does run this country.
Opposing Views reports:
“While the Trump administration continues to work on passing their health care bill to replace and repeal Obamacare, Barack took to Facebook on June 22 to urge senators to keep the best interest of the American people at heart.”
The former president wrote in part:
“I hope our Senators ask themselves – what will happen to the Americans grappling with opioid addiction who suddenly lose their coverage? What will happen to pregnant mothers, children with disabilities, poor adults and seniors who need long-term care once they can no longer count on Medicaid? What will happen if you have a medical emergency when insurance companies are once again allowed to exclude the benefits you need, send you unlimited bills, or set unaffordable deductibles? What impossible choices will working parents be forced to make if their child’s cancer treatment costs them more than their life savings?”
“To put the American people through that pain – while giving billionaires and corporations a massive tax cut in return – that’s tough to fathom. But it’s what’s at stake right now. So it remains my fervent hope that we step back and try to deliver on what the American people need.”
It’s insulting for a man who has made millions off of being a president after destroying the country and our healthcare, to be lecturing Americans about Trump’s replacement plan only benefitting billionaires. The first revision to Obamacare after Trump took office wasn’t perfect, but he was given a massive mess to have to fix in this area created by Obama. It’s going to take a lot longer than a few days to overhaul something this catastrophic. Had Obama not destroyed healthcare, you wouldn’t have grounds to criticize Trump in this matter from the comfort of his sweet and expensive vacation spot.
He took a break from anti-gravity yoga classes and white water rafting on his trip to make this statement as if he’s still the president when he should have just shut up and stayed out of it. Not even vacation time can stop this man from perpetuating divisiveness and spreading disdain for everything his successor does.
It’s classless to be making statements about our president while enjoying months on end of vacation going on trips more than any other retired president in history. He fully took advantage of the position he was given for eight years. After destroying everything, he’s looking and laughing at our new leader who is simply trying to fix his mess, while making his job harder with his antagonistic announcements like this one.
