Three things stand out in this story if you’re savvy enough to catch them:
1. Obama stopped in Hawaii at the time the federal judge there ruled against Trump travel ban 2. Did Obama speak with the judge before hand? We’ll never know, but it’s suspicious.
2. The absence of Michelle (or Michael, as the case may be) offers some evidence that the marriage between a down low gay president and his “wife” is fake. Obama will certainly be free to enjoy his houseboys in the privacy that he lacked in the White House.
3. I’ve seen Internet chatter suggesting that Obama is on the verge of being arrested and that Tahiti has no extradition treaty with the U.S. According to this list of countries with no extradition treaty, that’s not true. Tahiti is a French overseas country. I assume that French treaties are binding in Tahiti. However, there is the complication that France will not extradite someone facing the death penalty.
One more thing. Obama’s Secret Service agents are getting some nice duty at taxpayer expense.
Former President Barack Obama kicked off a month-long vacation on Wednesday, but his wife was nowhere to be found.
Barack Obama arrived in French Polynesia on Wednesday, where he will reportedly spend a month at the luxury Tetiaroa atoll retreat — a high-end escape owned by late actor Marlon Brando.
Obama will reportedly spend his time on the island of Tahiti without political meetings, or any of his family members. The 44th president has been in public sight numerous times since leaving his White House position — including a New York outing with U2’s Bono and a rockstar vacation in the British Virgin Islands with Richard Branson. The notorious March Madness fanatic even had time to fill out his 2017 NCAA tournament bracket.
Before arriving for his luxury stay in Tahiti, Obama made a stop in Hawaii for some golf play. A “Noi Thai Cuisine” restaurant posted pictures of the former commander in chief dining at their establishment.
The French Polynesian resort at which Obama is staying is quoted at costing between the euro equivalent of $2,150 and $13,201 dollars per night.
Both Barack and Michelle Obama signed massive book deals with Penguin Random House earlier this month, signaling their plans to stay visible as though leaders in the public eye. It is unclear what caused the former president’s wife to stay behind during Barack Obama’s trip, but the former first lady is also set to appear as a judge on tonight’s episode of “MasterChef Junior,” hosted by Chef Gordon Ramsay.
Meanwhile, back at Obama’s house in Washington, Valerie Jarrett is plotting the overthrow of President Trump. Obama may get his two cents worth in on that even if he is spending hours each day on an island canoe with a rent boy or two.
