While liberals were losing their collective minds about every minute detail of Trump’s administration, pictures of a smiling carefree Obama kitesurfing with billionaire Richard Branson went viral across the web in the first 3 weeks after leaving the White House.
Leftists compared it to seeing pictures of your ex living a joyful life post-breakup.
So is it possible the timing to release these photos was carefully orchestrated?
Recently, Paul Sperry of the New York Post published a piece where he aptly discussed how Obama is scheming to sabotage Trump’s presidency by forming a “shadow White House.”
“When former President Barack Obama said he was “heartened by anti-Trump protest, he was sending a message of approval to his troops. Troops? Yes, Obama has an army of agitators — numbering more than 30,000 — who will fight his Republican successor at every turn of his historic presidency. And Obama will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House.
In what’s shaping up to be a highly unusual post-presidency, Obama isn’t just staying behind in Washington. He’s working behind the scenes to set up what will effectively be a shadow government to not only protect his threatened legacy but to sabotage the incoming administration and its popular “America First” agenda.
He’s doing it through a network of leftist nonprofits led by Organizing for Action. Normally you’d expect an organization set up to support a politician and his agenda to close up shop after that candidate leaves office, but not Obama’s OFA. Rather, it’s gearing up for battle, with a growing war chest and more than 250 offices across the country.”
Over the course of the article, Sperry explains how the former President sent cryptic messages to the OFA’s activists acknowledging how little-known and not well-funded they are, and that Obama will be overseeing their operations secretly.
Sperry also noted:
“Obama will be overseeing it all from a shadow White House located within two miles of Trump. It features a mansion, which he’s fortifying with construction of a tall brick perimeter, and a nearby taxpayer-funded office with his own chief of staff and press secretary. Michelle Obama will also open an office there, along with the Obama Foundation.”
“The 55-year-old Obama is not content to go quietly into the night like other ex-presidents.
‘You’re going to see me early next year,’ he told his OFA troops after the election, ‘and we’re going to be in a position where we can start cooking up all kinds of great stuff.”
Added the ex-president: ‘Point is, I’m still fired up and ready to go.’”
But his message to the OFA about his “fired up” attitude is not what we saw in the pictures that spread all over the internet.
He says he’s “fired up”, yet kitesurfing in the Virgin Islands is the priority for the former President?
And the argument Obama deserved a much-needed vacation for his 8 years of service is hogwash because he was JUST in Hawaii vacationing over the Christmas break only several weeks before Trump’s inauguration.
You’re telling me Obama needed another vacation after working 2 weeks of work? No way.
No, the timed release of those pictures was carefully planned.
Don’t you think Obama was fully aware these gleeful pictures of him would undoubtedly go viral?
Don’t you think Obama would have the awareness to refuse any videos or photos of him enjoying life because it could send a message of apathy to his supporters while they’re panicking about the end of the world?
Of course he’s aware and it was intentional. “You’re vacationing while America’s falling apart?! How dare you!? We NEED you right NOW!”
And that’s the point.
Those pictures broke liberals’ spirits because they felt abandoned. It made them sad and then that sadness would gradually evolve into outrage, and then into inevitable violence.
Whether they realized it or not, those pictures were meant to evoke an emotional response and the epiphany in liberals everywhere that he can’t hold their hand any longer and it’s up to them now to aggressively defend his legacy.
Obama knows he can’t publicly attack Trump’s administration, but he can secretly and subtly manipulate liberals into carrying out his legacy while he pretends to be aloof – and the pictures were subtle proof.
Sperry’s analysis is correct, an Obama shadow White House is coming for President Trump, and the administration better be prepared.
