The Democrats and the liberal left have really taken November’s election result personally, and so they should – the Donald Trump victory was a true reflection of the failure of the Obama years.
But as with any inauguration it is tradition that the most current and outgoing president attends – this is what America is based on, the smooth and peaceful transition of power.
But following a short interaction with media on Monday, Obama quipped that he may be spending all of January on the golf course. Joke or not, President Obama has spent a large majority of his presidency on the golf course (Hawaii is a personal favorite), even at times when the country and the world desperatley required him.
Obama said of his Hawaii holiday spot “it’s great, there’s fun and sunshine and you can suntan”. In previous interviews Obama has openly stated his admiration of his favourite golf spot noting you can “brush shoulders with the stars” and that he even “gets drinks for free.”
We will await and see where he is on January 20, but we are encouraged to see Donald Trump was working right up until Christmas!
Do you think outgoing presidents should attend the inauguration? How bad does it look for the Democrats if Obama gives it a miss?!
