President Obama’s lack of self-awareness was on full display when he spoke at the Catholic-Evangelical Leadership Summit at Georgetown University today and criticized people who send their kids to “private schools” and “private clubs.”
Obama laments that people start sending kids to private schools, working out at private clubs, separating themselves from the public

A panel including Robert Putnam, professor of public policy at the Harvard University John F. Kennedy School of Government and Arthur Brooks, president of the American Enterprise Institute were discussing ways to overcome poverty.
Obama stated that those who have economic advantages are withdrawing from societal common areas. He claimed those who socially separate themselves are contributing to a sluggish economy that lacks opportunity.
The hypocrisy was not lost on social media users who were quick to point out Obama’s glaring hypocrisy. (Warning for strong language)
And then some.

@charliespiering Does he not send his daughters to (private) Sidwell Friends? Generally, parents want best opportunities for their children.

I missed the part where he talks about the private school for his own children. https://t.co/fe7FzmDEyC — Sean Agnew (@seanagnew) May 12, 2015
That’s because that part doesn’t exist.
