Obama is a hypocrite. Like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, he has spent years railing against Wall Street and the “greedy” rich. But like al liberals, it’s different when he does it.
He’s already raking in tons of cash from Wall Street and the media is giving him a pass, as usual.
The Washington Times reports:
Obama hauls in millions from Wall Street, media don’t say a word
It’s the height of hypocrisy.
Seriously, it could not be any more hypocritical, or it would just sound made up.
Former President Barack Obama is hauling in millions from Wall Street banks — the very institutions he harangued throughout both of his presidential campaigns.
Throughout their political careers, both Hillary Clinton and Mr. Obama berated banks and the “fat cats” who run them as heartless corporations (while filling their own pockets with their cash). Mrs. Clinton made millions giving speeches to the huge financial institutions, swatting away charges of hypocrisy. This apparently didn’t really sell with Mr. and Mrs. America, who didn’t elect her president.
Now it’s Mr. Obama’s turn to make bank.
Last month he spoke to clients of Northern Trust Corp. for about $400,000, a person familiar with his appearance told Bloomberg News.
But that’s not a one-off. “Last week, he reminisced about the White House for Carlyle Group LP, one of the world’s biggest private equity firms, according to two people who were there,” Bloomberg wrote.
It must be great to be a Democrat. You can do whatever you want and the media will cover for you.
