Former President Barack Obama and his “wife” (I still believe she might be a he) have spent an awful lot of time on vacation lately. You may say “Oh lay off, he’s earned it.” Well, in that case, I can’t wait to tell you the details of his most recent vacation, because it seems to fly in the face of literally everything he said for the last 8 years.
Pardon the pun, but I literally mean “fly”… and a host of other carbon-sucking endeavours that would trigger even his most ardent fans, sending social justice warriors and snowflakes everywhere scrambling to find some Crayolas and a nice, quiet, “safe space” to colour until it’s all over.
Sorry Libtards, but I don’t think he’s going to stop embarrassing you anytime soon.
On May 29, 2014, the Guardian newspaper reported on President Barack Obama’s unveiled plan to cut carbon pollution from power plants and promote cap and trade – the paper stating that Obama was “undertaking the most significant action on climate change in American history“.
The proposed regulations Obama would launch at the White House almost exactly 3 years ago today were meant to cut carbon pollution by as much as 25% from about 1,600 power plants in operation at that time, according to those claiming familiarity with the plan. Power plants, according to the same article, were America’s single biggest source of carbon pollution – responsible for up to 40% of the country’s emissions.
And now, let’s fast forward three years later, and take a look at Obama’s recent efforts to single-handedly be responsible for the remaining 60% of the country’s emissions. All by himself.
Of course, we are exaggerating – but when you hear just what Obama’s been up to lately, you will start to think that perhaps we aren’t the ones in this story who pulled the wool over your eyes the most. It seems that President Obama the Vacationing Emperor does not march to the same beat as President Obama the Vacuous Environmentalist.
It all started on May 7, 2017, when the Washington Examiner reported:
Former President Barack Obama is travelling to Italy to speak about climate change and food security.
He will be in Milan on Monday and Tuesday where he will meet with Italians, “including friends that he made while in office,” a statement said Sunday. It was sent only moments after Obama spoke at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library in Boston, where he was awarded the Profiles in Courage Award. [emphasis mine]
Obama flew into Milan on a private jet on May 9 and as the Daily Express reported, he pocketed over £2.5million ($3,221,500.00 USD on May 25, 2017) for the sold-out speech to the Global Food Innovation Summit. The Express reported that when he landed in the city, he headed straight for the extravagant Park Hyatt hotel, which can cost up to £7,100 ($9,140 USD on May 25, 2017) a night.
“After bringing the city to a standstill with a convoy of 14 cars, a helicopter and a 300-strong police escort, President Obama’s entourage reportedly took over two floors of the hotel.”
Sorry, but I have to ask the obvious – and I actually hope it triggers Leftists everywhere, causing global mayhem, rioting and weeping out loud in public (I’ll settle for the last one):
DOES THIS GUY KNOW HE’S NO LONGER PRESIDENT?
SERIOUSLY does he know that?
How exactly does one come to a forum as prestigious as this, to speak about climate change and other related topics, and create this kind of carbon footprint when he does?
Yes, that “Profiles In Courage” award was fitting – because I can’t think of anyone with more balls to pull off this kind of grotesque hypocrisy than he has.
Well, except for maybe “Michelle” Obama, that is.
Oh, but it doesn’t end there. As BizPac Review reported last Friday, May 19, 2017:
On Friday, the former president and his wife Michelle arrived in Tuscany aboard a private plane, escorted to a military base by six fighter jets, then whisked away in 13-car motorcade to a private villa where the stay costs regular folk $15,000 per night.
But the Obamas will likely not be paying for their five-night stay at the refurbished 14th century village as it is owned by Obama’s former ambassador to Italy, John Philips, the Daily Mail reported. [A whole whack of emphasis mine]
I don’t really care at all how much money he spends on his vacations, or where he stays when he goes somewhere. That’s his business. But are we to actually believe that HE paid for 6 fighter jets to escort him, or the 13-car motorcade? And again, what kind of carbon footprint is this creating?
And again, does this guy know he’s not President anymore?
Now, Obama sycophants, I am providing you with an opportunity to explain the President’s dedication to environmental causes, in contrast with the current debacle unfolding before us. Give it your best shot.
But be warned – if you were to be foolish enough to choose to debate this topic face to face with me, you might just experience my carbon footprint…
…landing dead centre on your rear end.
I would look forward to experiencing first-hand a bit of climate change right before my eyes, to be sure. Perhaps, when I hit the mark, we would even see some global warming.
The science is certain on that.
