Obama and his family last Friday traveled to Indonesia for vacation. Yesterday they boarded a private jet and headed to their next destination, Yogyakarta. While the Obama family enjoys in their luxury life, the rest of America is struggling to survive.
After leaving in January, Obama has traveled to the most expensive and luxury destinations like Marlon Brando’s private island, Bali, a famous resort in Tuscany, a Palm Springs estate… Even Democrats have started to express frustration about his luxury international vacations.
“These are some of the most luxurious travel destinations in the world,” Kendra Thornton, a travel expert, and owner of a travel agency told reporters. “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.”
“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,’” added 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.”
Even HBO host John Oliver went after Obama this week, saying, “I’m a little sick of seeing photos of President Obama on vacation with Richard Branson. Just tone it down with the kite-surfing pictures. I’m glad he’s having a nice time—America is on fire.”
