    How Barack Obama Has Made $20 Million Since Arriving In Washington


    Reflect on the 2008-'16 events in the Image. Now do you see how Obama's office and his position, as leader of the free world, greatly caused his wealth especially as President? Is that a conflict of interest?? If so, then why did it get a pass back then? But not, today??

    Can you spell...Hypocrisy?

    Obama...”the black mascot for Wall Street.”

    Has there been a greater fraud than O? Maybe Donnie?

    Wall Street has more money than Donnie, so...the answer is rather obvious

    Obama is a Dimm, so it’s ok for him to profit from public service.

    These were mostly two very successful books, both published before the Presidency, and his salary as a U.S. Senator and President: $19.3m.

    The rest - $1.2m, spread out over 11 years, amounts to $110k per year - appears to be Michelle's income.

    That is problematic, how? For the Emoluments Clause seeks to ensure that no gifts or income be derived from foreign notaries so as to prevent foreign influence on U.S. policies - such as foreign governments or associated economic interests "renting" a dozen hilariously expensive hotel suites without using any of them?

    Can you spell... Imbecility? If there is even more benighted clickbait available anywhere on the innertubes, I have yet to see it.

    Obama did not teach this but he most certainly was a part of it.

    Bummer.

    To use the Presidency for his personal profit means conducting the office in such a way as to increase his personal income.

    Demonstrate how President Obama was "part of it", please.

    So, you can't explain your stance, but you found benighted clickbait telling you what to hyperventilate about. That's how you want to be seen?
