Barack & Michelle Obama Assailed During Extravagant Vacation in French Riviera with Bono

Barack and Michelle Obama are currently on an extravagant European vacation that has seen them make stops to see various A-list friends. Yesterday, the Obamas had spent time at the villa of George and Amal Clooney in Italy. Now, it’s been revealed that Barack and Michelle have also been living it up with U2 singer Bono in the French Riviera.
Page Six reported that Barack and Michelle were spotted having lunch with Bono along with their daughters Malia and Sasha at the two-Michelin-starred restaurant La Chèvre d’Or in the medieval city of Èze. They were joined at the lunch by guitarist The Edge as well as Bono’s wife, Ali Hewson.
After the Obamas lunched with Bono, they headed to Italy to stay with the Clooneys. Barack has previously been open about his friendship with George, calling him a “wonderful guy” in a 2012 interview.
“The truth is we got to know each other because of a substantive issue,” Barack said, according to CBS News. “He is a terrific advocate on behalf of the people of Darfur, and to the people of Sudan who’ve been brutalized for a long time.”
“And so when I was a senator — this was well before I was president — that was an issue that I was working together on a bipartisan basis, and George, who had traveled there, done documentaries there, and was very well-informed, came to testify in Congress. And so we got to know each other, and he is a good man, and a good friend,” Obama added.
Barack and Michelle have been widely slammed for taking this trip, as rumors have swirled that they are in Europe to conspire with their leftwing A-list friends about how they can take down President Donald Trump. Sources say that Barack in particular is obsessed with ensuring that Trump will lose the election in 2020.
“A former senior adviser to President Barack Obama has said that the president is deeply concerned about the direction of the U.S. and that the two-term president plans to be involved in Democratic efforts to defeat President Donald Trump in the 2020 election,” reported Newsweek.
Barack has yet to endorse a candidate in the Democratic field despite the fact that his former Vice President Joe Biden is running. While Biden claims that he asked Barack not to endorse him, Trump just spoke out to declare this to be a lie.
“How [former Vice President Biden] doesn’t get President Obama to endorse him — there has to be some reason why he’s not endorsing him,” Trump said. “He was the vice president. They seem to have gotten along. And how President Obama’s not endorsing him is rather a big secret. Then he goes and lies and said, ‘I asked the president not to endorse me.’ Give me a break.”
Trump added that Biden only made this claim because “he’s embarrassed by the fact that Obama’s not endorsing him, so he goes out and says, ‘I asked President Obama not to endorse me.’ … So it could be that President Obama knows something, but there is something going on in that brain of his.”
“I think he’s off,” Trump concluded. “He’s different. We’ve all known him a long time. I’ve seen him for a long time. Frankly, he looks different, he sounds different, and he thinks different. Other than that, I hope he does very well.”
