Rush Limbaugh said during his show last Wednesday, former president Obama’s luxury lifestyle revealed just who he really is.
“The Obamas are under fire. The left is seething at Obama. Are you aware of this? Because he’s on this never-ending exotic vacation with all these billionaires. He’s on David Geffen’s yacht out there, which looks like a Carnival cruise line ship. I mean, it’s that big. He’s hanging around Malaysia. He’s hanging around Marlon Brandon’s place over in Bali. He is doing all these speeches for bankers. I mean, they’re looking at him as a sellout,” he said.
Several media outlets have reported Dems looking rather skeptically at Obama for taking expensive trips.
“These trips are like the lifestyles of the rich and famous,” said Democratic strategist Pat Caddell. “I think the Bernie Sanders wing of the party, when they see President Obama, whom they instinctively want to defend being the corporatist president, I think it makes the base uneasy.”
“I am not surprised by Obama’s several recent foreign vacations. As president, he disappointed millions of supporters who hoped he would be a strong advocate for working-class people,” said Dr. David Michael Smith of the Houston Socialist Movement.
Some people say that the images of current Obama portray a different man than the one who led our country up until last year.
“I’m a little sick of seeing photos of President Obama on vacation with Richard Branson. Just tone it down with the kite-surfing pictures. I’m glad he’s having a nice time — America is on fire,” said HBO host John Oliver Monday.
According to host Limbaugh, this outrage is a result of the fact that liberals never really knew Obama.
“I know better who Obama is and what he’s made up of and what his objectives are than all of these sycophants who had this slavish devotion to the guy. They had a slavish devotion to an ideal,” he said.
Limbaugh added that Obama’s followers actually worshiped an image of Obama that they created themselves.
“He was a blank canvas, and they could make him whatever they wanted him to be, and he was nothing like what they wanted him to be. He’s just like the Clintons, craving cash, craving money, craving status that derives from wealth. He desires to be friends with the people in that stratosphere. And he’s doing everything he can to hobnob with them and to become one of them in mind and body and bankbook. And he’s being viewed here as a sellout to the cause,” Limbaugh said.
