The vacationer-in-chief is still at it with no let up in sight.

Now that former President Obama is out of office, the 44th president is raising liberal eyebrows for what conservatives blasted him for while he was still in office.
Taking too many luxury retreats.
The globe-trotting first family have engaged upon a string of holidays that would make up a lifetime total for most families. Fox News reported:
Since leaving office in late January, Obama has visited late actor Marlon Brando’s private island; the Four Seasons in Bali — where rooms cost upward of $2,000 per night; a Palm Springs estate; Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island; the exclusive Mid Pacific Country Club in Oahu; the 13th-century Borgo Finocchieto in Tuscany; and the Rising Sun, Hollywood studio mogul David Geffen’s private yacht
The the jet-setting would be sure to make former Democratic President Harry S. Truman see red if he were still alive. He once famously said, “You can’t get rich in politics unless you’re a crook.”

“These are some of the most luxurious travel destinations in the world. Many of our clients spend tens of thousands of dollars or more to stay at these resorts, which cater to the most discriminating and demanding guests,” said Kendra Thornton, travel expert and owner of luxury travel agency Royal Travel. “For example, Necker Island has a nightly price tag of $80,000. Anyone who stays at these properties does so because they want the best of the best.”
One of the recent Obama getaways was to the Italy’s Borgo Finocchieto hotel, which Fox News described as less of a hotel and more of an experience for the rich and famous. One doesn’t rent a room or even a suite or two there. If you want to stay at Borgo Finocchieto you rent out an entire medieval Tuscan hamlet consisting of five villas and 22 bedrooms — for a three night minimum.

“These trips are like the lifestyles of the rich and famous,” Democratic strategist Pat Caddell said. The former adviser to ex-President Jimmy Carter called 44’s vacations “unprecedented,” especially when viewed alongside his former boss’s first months out of office.
“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,” said Caddell.
But apparently Plains, Georgia doesn’t agree with the Obamas — nor does Independence, Missouri, where the Trumans retired after leaving the White House. On the other hand — Bali, anyone?

It’s good to be king — or in Obama’s case, ex-king.
On one of the family outings, Richard Branson challenged Obama to a kitesurf vs foilboard learning contest – here’s what happened.
