Yup, because he works so hard and never takes a vacation. Most of the rest of his remaining time, he will be on vacation in Hawaii. Then there’s his Martha’s Vineyard vacations in August. His boy golf getaway weekends on his birthday. Michelle’s ski getaway winter vacations, and on and on.
While moving out of the White House, President Obama will also be packing his suitcase for a holiday. The outgoing executive told Comedy Central’s Trevor Noah that after eight difficult years he’s looking forward to “a decent vacation.”
No doubt Obama deserves one — of course, on his own dime this time. While in office, he’s explored the Roman Coliseum, walked the Great Wall of China and snorkeled in Maui. Now during retirement, picking a decent destination will be truly difficult.
Dubbed “the ultimate tourist,” by The New York Times, Obama seldom let a trip overseas go to waste. Diplomatic business trips doubled as Obama family vacations, like that time the president stopped in balmy Buenos Aires after swinging through tropical Havana, Cuba.
