While Obama’s scorched-earth policies continue to ravage America and beyond, the president will be busy touring the world for much of the duration of his term.
The purpose is to “seal his foreign policy legacy,” according to Politico.

Hold onto your hats folks, it could be a bumpy ride.
According to Politico:
Obama has asked aides to set a busy international travel schedule for him in his final year, with “half a dozen” trips already in the works and more potentially coming together. The travel will be aimed at cementing a foreign policy legacy he hopes will include the Trans-Pacific Partnership, increased attention to Asia, an opening of Latin America, progress against the Islamic State and significant global movement on climate change.
Air Force One will tack on a lot of miles courtesy of American taxpayers, and no doubt, folks stuck at home trying to make enough money to pay increased healthcare premiums (if they’re lucky enough to have a job) will be treated to countless photo-ops of the president here, there, and everywhere.
All this and more wasn’t lost on those who didn’t appreciate the “news” of Obama’s “legacy”:

@politico Sounds like the Obama family is about to embark on a whirlwind vacation around the world on the taxpayers’ dimes!

Don’t be so critical. But, then again:

No one, at least on Twitter, thought he’ll be fooling anyone:
@politico You mean to spin his disastrous legacy? Where, Politico, in entire world, are things better today than 7 years ago? I’ll wait…
