Dems Concerned About Obama’s Lavish Vacations

President Obama is making Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous look like a club for paupers.

He left the country a complete mess, heavily indebted and still at war overseas – with new wars beckoning – but that isn’t stopping him from treating himself to the spoils of his book sales, future and past, and a cascade of cash that will flow for years from public speaking gigs.

According to Fox, this is making some Democrats uneasy.

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.

“These are some of the most luxurious travel destinations in the world. 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,” said Kendra Thornton, travel expert and owner of luxury travel agency Royal Travel. “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.”

CNN’s Jim Acosta Interrupts Other Reporters, Demanding On-Camera Briefings

I get why a TV person wants on-camera briefings. He does TV. And there is some reason to want these things televised. It gives Americans a chance to see the White House taking questions and being held to account. And the presence of cameras does inspire reporters to get more aggressive. CNN’s Jim Acosta is… Continue Reading

Supreme Court Grants Temporarily Allows Portion of Trump Travel Ban

Sanders: Obamacare has Problems; Single-Payer is the Way To Go
