Let’s face it, golf and fundraising is more important to him than his wife and family.
President Obama is traveling to California on Friday to discuss the severe drought that is threatening farmers’ livelihood and meet with the king of Jordan.
But he is also going to spend the weekend relaxing at Sunnysides, a desert estate in Rancho Mirage, Calif.
The president will spend the evening of Valentine’s Day dining with King Abdullah II of Jordan followed by two days of golf, according to a senior administration official to the New York Times.
Nice. One king chilling out with a wannabe king. Don’t worry about the family, though, they’re getting their own vacation.
There is, however, a tantalizing bit of unofficial business for a president whose wife and daughters will be away on their own travels, leaving him alone on Presidents’ Day weekend in a secluded oasis where the forecast is calling for mostly sunny skies and a temperature of 89 degrees.
After the dual vacations, expect another speech on income inequality.
