Obama isn’t president anymore, but that hasn’t stopped his vacations from being criticized.
The former POTUS visited Hawaii the place he was born this week to have some fun in the sun, golf a bit and take a few meetings. It seems like a normal, innocent trip, right? Or DOES it?
As you’ve probably heard by now, on Wednesday, Trump’s second travel ban was blocked several hours before it was set to go into effect… by none other than a federal judge in Hawaii. * GASP *
~ Let the conspiracy theories flyyyyy. ~
Naturally, following the ban, people began calling the timing of Obama’s trip to Hawaii into question and wondered whether he went there with the sole purpose of sabotaging Trump’s new travel ban. While some were undoubtedly joking, in this day and age it’s a very fine line between ironic conspiracy-theory mongering and sincere conspiracy-theory mongering.
Obama travels to Hawaii 48 hours prior to judge’s anti-travel ban ruling, a judge he graduated Law School with. Just a coincidence, right?

Though completely absurd, Infowars noted that Obama appointed and graduated the same year as the judge who put the ban in place. Infowars then went so far as to scour Reddit to find a thread detailing Obama’s known Hawaii stops and apparently the Noi Thai Cuisine restaurant he dined at with some friends and his sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng, is only minutes away from the courthouse. LOL.
So like, let me understand this. Obama wasn’t even craving Thai food? He just chose to dine at that specific restaurant because of its close proximity to US District Court Judge Derrick Watson??!
And Obama’s choice of restaurant had nothing to do with its 4.8 star rating?? It had nothing to do with how delicious Thai food is? Instead, you’re telling me it had everything to do with his desire to destroy Trump? Oh. Okay. Everything makes sense now.
LOL. Wait, no it doesn’t. Because on Thursday morning another federal judge in Maryland also blocked Trump’s 90-day ban and Obama is not in Maryland.
So what now?
