Barack and Michelle Obama Leave Tahiti as They Continue Post-White House Tropical Tour
People ^ | April 10, 2017 | BY PETER MIKELBANK

Temperature 82 degrees with occasional clouds, and lagoon waters, clear as paradise… former President Barack Obama is wrapping up his month-long vacation in French Polynesia – with Michelle by his side.

On Sunday, Tahiti television station TNTV revealed photos of Michelle Obama paddleboarding while the Barack swam in a Polynesian lagoon.

The pictures were taken on the island of Moorea by fellow vacationers, who spotted the laid-back couple using a small boat for a late morning excursion. They were escorted by two other boats with their security detail, the station says.

The former president has been staying out of the public eye at The Brando, the super-private luxury hotel on Tetiaroa, the South Pacific island bought in 1967 by Marlon Brando as a personal retreat.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama had not been with her husband the entire time – she arrived on the island on Saturday.

Good - stay away, please. Better yet, just stay there.

He was on Tetiaroa by himself according to all the reports. So, Michelle flew down to a different island to meet him or what?

Not the same island. Obama was on Tetiaroa at the Brando resort. This is reportedly on Moorea.

It was once a dream of mine to visit Tahiti...now if I go, it'll be with the knowledge that he's sullied it with his presence.

400k is a lot of salary for one year, but it doesn't provide for endless leisure in tropical islands, for an extended period of time. Must be nice. Maybe they only ordered from the buffet line?

They stopped off for an ice cream on the way to the airport.
The server asked him “Sorbet?”
“Only when I sit for long times”, the former pres replied.

A $60MM advance on an as-yet-unwritten book deal will fund it.

I’m glad to see Barack finally being able to get out and travel, and even get in a little golf.

Since French Polynesia doesn’t have an extradition treaty with the US I wonder where their next ‘vacation” stop will be and for how long.

It would be an interesting observation if the second nation in their all expense paid vacation also doesn’t have an extradition treaty with US.

This story had one comment. Some libtard posted “I really miss those 2”.

Hah hah, apparently nobody else does because that was the only post.

My grandfather had a Tahitian girlfriend he’d occasionally go visit. Those were the days you could make payments on air travel with little down

Probably comped it, while the Secret Service paid full freight on our dime.
