The world could be falling apart and Obama would still go on vacation. Oh wait, it is falling apart.
Check it out:
Amid an international ebola health emergency, U.S. airstrikes in Iraq, and the illegal immigration crisis surging on the southern border, President Barack Obama leaves on Saturday for a lavish Martha’s Vineyard twelve day vacation at the 8,100-square foot mansion of Democratic Party donor Joanne Hubschman.
The timing of Obama’s swank vacation has even the president’s supporters worried.
“Even some of Obama’s most ardent supporters are questioning the wisdom of this summer’s sojourn as war roils Gaza and a wave of families and children are crossing the southwestern US border illegally,” reports the Boston Globe.
The White House announced Thursday that Obama will briefly interrupt his vacation by returning to Washington on Sunday, August 17, for a few meetings and then jetting back to the Massachusetts island retreat on August 19 to continue his vacation until August 24th.
