Former President Barack Obama not so subtly turned the office of the Commander in Chief into some form of A-list celebrity gathering place.
From his numerous appearances on television programs, to his willingness to play along with some of the more outrageous entertainers during the White House Press Correspondent’s Dinner, Obama was no stranger to the cameras of the small screen. His poor comic timing and unfortunate sense of humor notwithstanding, the former President spent an alarming amount of his time working on gags and publicity stunts while the nation slid into liberal excess beneath him.
Now, in his pseudo-retirement from politics, Obama is turning up his celebrity status a few notches according to the latest sighting of the former diplomat on a massive yacht partying with elite international icons.
“For the last month, the Obamas have been partying it up in French Polynesia. And over the weekend, they joined an all-star cast on David Geffen’s super yacht (which seriously looks like a cruise ship).
“The Obamas joined Geffen, talk show personality Oprah Winfrey, rocker Bruce Springsteen and actor Tom Hanks aboard the 5,000-foot yacht (wait, 454 feet, it just looks that long), the Daily Mail reported. They were photographed taking pictures aboard the $600 million Rising Sun yacht, which has eight bedrooms and a crew of 30.
“The Obamas have been cruising the world for months. They stayed at the exclusive Brando resort last month, and lounged in the Caribbean in January, when the couple spent time with Richard Branson on Necker Island.
“No idea who is taking care of 15-year-old Sasha Obama. But one thing is clear: The Obamas ain’t never going back to Chicago.”
This is what has become of liberal politics. The dog and pony show has begun to outweigh the substance of the politicians who are performing, turning instead into a sick and twisted version of the infamous “cult of personality”. The Obamas are only one example of this disturbing new trend, with Hillary Clinton running a campaign solely on the reality of her gender, while ignoring the massive political liability that she has become.
Meanwhile, Obama hasn’t been completely devoid of politics in his post-presidential partying. Reports from Washington D.C. state that the former President has tasked a team of several Washington insiders to keep tabs on the Trump White House for Obama…an alarming situation in its own right.
