Fox Calls Out Obama For Too Much Vacationing

According to Fox News, the Democratic base is growing increasingly frustrated with former President Barack Obama’s actions after leaving office, including a seemingly endless tour of millionaire and billionaire luxury retreats.

Ex-presidents, understandably and un-controversially, go on vacations immediately after leaving office. But the level of luxury the Obamas enjoy on their vacations is unprecedented for a modern-day president, say Fox News’ travel “experts”.

Since leaving office in late January, Obama has visited late actor Marlon Brando’s private island; the Four Seasons in Bali — where rooms cost upward of $2,000 per night; a Palm Springs estate; Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island; the exclusive Mid Pacific Country Club in Oahu; the 13th-century Borgo Finocchieto in Tuscany; and the Rising Sun, Hollywood studio mogul David Geffen’s private yacht.

 

 

Left-wing activists told Fox News they are troubled by what they see as a trend by Obama to distance himself from the base of the party. It’s not just vacations. The president also has enjoyed hefty fees for speeches to prominent Wall Street firms. It’s all part of a trend, they say, of Obama trying to join the fabled 1 percent.

The president’s press team didn’t want to go on the record since Obama is a private citizen and it doesn’t comment on his personal schedule or private outings with his family. Read more at Fox News.

  1. Simply put. he needs to go on more vacations than he did as potus. Also, for some reason, he’s gotten bored of playing golf.

  2. Obama the Liberal and that wife of his are TAKERS. They are classic gold-diggers. They never did anything or gave anything to anyone. They are selfish arrogant elitists lowlifes. If they were white they would of never ascended to the highest office in the land. In essence, they are nobodys. They’ve never benefited any other person. It was the media that decided that now was the time for a black President and the dumb stupid idiot voters just fell in line like blind bats.

  3. let the man live
    if he opens his mouth u all scream shut up
    if he shuts up u r also not happy
    let him b
    far away on a billionaires island

  4. We conservatives can’t let go of our grievances. On talk radio we heard about Clinton for years and years after he left office until it got totally boring and irrelevant. The same is happening now. Complaining about Obama’s vacations while he was president made sense. It’s totally irrelevant now. If he has the $$ he can do whatever he wants with it just like any other rich person. Isn’t that part of our conservative philosophy? Stop whining about Clinton and Obama! Move on! BTW, Trump goes on vacation every weekend. Does anyone mention it? No, and they shouldn’t. He’s not taking my money. But there is a double standard since it’s OK for Trump but it wasn’t OK for Obama. We conservatives should stick to what’s important and not sabotage our agenda by whining about every little irrelevant thing a Democrat does.

  5. He was on vacation for 8 years in the White House. Now he needs a vacation from that vacation. His whole life is a vacation. I don’t envy his afterlife.
