The Obamas' never-ending vacation: Tropical Bali edition

Editorial cartoon on Obama's legacy

Monica Showalter  "As Obama once suggested: At some point, how much before you've had enough?
"Well he's showing for us, that for Obamaville, there's nothing that's ever enough.
"Taking what must be something like his tenth post-presidential vacation (while Valerie Jarrett mans the Deep State fort back in Kalorama), because Palm Springs, the Bahamas, Hawaii, Tahiti, Italy, Germany, (and probably some others) just weren't enough, he, Michelle and the kids blew into the leafy green center of Bali, the highland town of Ubud, home of all the lush pretty tropical cultural stuff the island is known for. " . . .
"It stands in stark contrast to his spin upon leaving office - that he would focus on mentoring the inner city black youth and tend to the high school education of his daughter Sasha (who at least was allowed on the trip this time.) And it's quite a change from his claim that "at some point, you've had enough.' We guess he hasn't.
"In reality, he's doing to the max what many retired politicians and other operatives do - getting the whole trip paid for and the tax deductions in place by claiming the visit is a business trip - based on giving a token speech - in his case, in nearby Jakarta to the Indonesian diaspora (a group he has never cared about until now), taking a fat payout, and then writing the whole thing off." . . .
