Obama throws a hissy fit for not being treated like royalty on his trip to get smoothie.
There's a story floating around the internet that claims Obama was witnessed making an ass of himself in Public. The story says that he was at a smoothie shop “acting like a toddler,” because he wanted to be first in line. He had the secret service take any phones that were seen recording the incident.
From USA Politics Today:
A woman who was standing in line told the Washington Examiner:
“HE WAS LIKE A LITTLE KID. HE STOMPED AROUND DEMANDING WE ALL GET OUT OF HIS WAY. THEN HE MADE HIS GOONS TAKE THE CELL PHONES FROM THE PEOPLE WHO WERE RECORDING, GOT HIS SMOOTHIE AND LEFT.”
He still thinks everybody is supposed to bow down to him. I bet those Secret Service guys can't stomach him. That's not the first hissy-fit he's thrown, probably won't be the last.
It's time to get him out of the news and focus on the positive change Donald Trump is bringing.
Just When You Think He's Gone, Obama Returns To Interfere W/ Elections By Lobbying To Change The Drawing Of Districts
Obama has revealed his new initiative on Monday to have an influence on redistricting (gerrymandering?) efforts all over the country.
Breitbart News reports, “The initiative, Redistricting U, will send activists to provide free training and tools to volunteers involved in redistricting efforts and guide groups on how to ‘be leaders in the movement for fair maps.'”
“Training is at the heart of organizing. It’s why I’ve always made it a priority – from my 2008 campaign until now,” the Democrat wrote in the Twitter post announcing Redistricting U, a part of the “All On The Line” campaign.
According to Breitbart, “In February, Obama’s Organizing For Action and former Attorney General Eric Holder’s National Redistricting Action Fund joined forces to create the All On The Line campaign — aimed at thwarting the use of so-called gerrymandering across the country.”
Obama stated, “The movement for fair maps will determine the course of progress on every issue we care about for the next decade. And we can’t wait to begin organizing when the redistricting process starts in 2021. We need to build this movement from the ground up – right now.”
“The movement for fair maps will determine the course of progress on every issue we care about for the next decade. And we can’t wait to begin organizing when the redistricting process starts in 2021. We need to build this movement from the ground up — right now,” the former President said in a statement posted to the initiative’s webpage.
“It’s why I made it a priority in my 2008 campaign and throughout our larger movement for change in the years since,” Obama went on.
The initiative is part of a larger push by the Obamas for voting reform. In 2018, former first lady Michelle Obama created the When We All Vote initiative aimed at increasing voter turnout across the country.
Editor's Note: Knowing that the Democrat's favorite tool is “projection” (accusing your opponent of the crimes and tactics of which you are guilty in order to shield yourself from criticism on that topic) I would venture to guess this project is more about controlling the gerrymandering, rather than stopping it. But hey that's …
… just like, my opinion, man.
Then…. This happened:
Isn't it ironic that the same man who spent his entire presidency trying to convince Americans that wealth and economic inequality was entirely unfair is reportedly in escrow on a roughly $15 million Martha's Vineyard estate?
Well, the internet sure thought so, and they didn't take it easy on former President Barack Obama and his wife, former First Lady Michelle Obama, when the news broke.
TMZ reported that former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama are currently in escrow on the multimillion-dollar estate, which is currently owned by NBA Boston Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck.
“The former Prez and First Lady have been renting the house this summer and loved it so much, we've learned they made an offer. The property is listed at $14,850,000. Our sources say they're paying less, but we don't know how much,” the report explained.
The nearly 6,900-square-foot mansion comes with seven bedrooms, an outdoor pool, an outdoor fireplace, a second-floor balcony Jacuzzi, its' own boathouse, as well as two guest wings, reported TMZ.
The Daily Wire explains, “The irony of Mr. You-didn't-build-that and At-a-certain-point-you've-made-enough-money himself living so lavishly was not lost on the internet. Nor was the fact that the property is beachfront (with a massive carbon footprint!). If one were to truthfully believe in the climate hysteria echoed by Obama, this purchase would be highly unwise, as the house will surely be underwater in a matter of years.”

Radio host Mark Simone wrote in a tweet, “The Obama's totally reject socialism and buy another mega mansion – a $15 million dollar Martha's Vineyard estate that they'll only use a few weeks a year, in an attempt to set a new record for income inequality.”

“‘At a certain point, you've made enough money.' – guy who got a $65M book deal then bought a 7-bdrm 7,000 sq-foot Martha's Vineyard mansion on 29 acres worth $15 million,” well-known Twitter politico “Razor” wrote in a post.

“If I genuinely believed in 12 years coastal areas would be under water, I wouldn't by a $15 million mansion on…Martha's Vineyard,” podcast host Amy Curtis wrote. She went on, “Call me crazy, but it doesn't seem like Obama is taking climate change all that seriously.”

The New York Post recently reported that the Obamas just dished out $8.1 million on another nine-bedroom home, located in Washington, D.C. According to the Daily Wire, “The Post also noted that Mr. Obama had a $40 million net worth in 2018, and combined with the former First Lady’s wealth, the duo are worth an estimated $135 million.”
It's truly disheartening that the same man who spent two terms as President preaching to Americans about the evils of “economic inequality” is now dishing out millions on personal homes. Why don't you put your money where your mouth is, Barack?
