While the rest of America is panicking, worrying, crying, stressing, obsessing, marching, protesting, despairing, etc., Obama is living it up in the British Virgin Islands with billionaire Richard Branson.
I mean, sure, the guy deserves a break, but WHY DIDN'T HE TAKE US WITH HIM?!
As it always is after a breakup, writing "ex" is difficult. America's just not ready to call Obama its ex-POTUS yet, which is why it hurts even more to see Barry enjoying the sun and the sea without so much as a care in the world.
But you've got to admit it – Obama is just the coolest. What other ex-POTUS jets off to a tropical island and goes kitesurfing with a billionaire after leaving office?
He and his pal Branson have been having a wildly fun time in the British Virgin Islands. So much so that it seems like he's completely forgotten about all of us sad, scared folk back home. And what about his real BFF, Joe Biden!? It looks like Branson is trying to swoop on Biden's bestie.
The Obamas haven't had a stress-free vacation in eight years, so it's about time they had some time to relax and unwind. Still, there are a lot of mixed emotions we have to deal with... we're happy for the Obamas, but at the same time we just miss them and we're jealous and we're feeling very insecure and we'd like them to come back and tell us it's all going to be okay.
There are five stages of grief, and Obama didn't give us enough time to deal with even one stage of grief before he escaped to paradise to have the time of his life. We're still in denial over here, Barry.
... On the golf course. We all know that Obama LOVES golfing, so much so that he even caught some flack for golfing so often during his presidency. Now that he doesn't have to deal with the BS of running a country and all that, you can bet that Obama will be spending a lot more time practicing his swing.
