For an egomaniac like Barack Hussein Obama, having to give up the public’s attention to President Donald Trump has been incredibly difficult. Though Obama is no longer president, this has not stopped him from trying to take back this role any chance he gets.
Freedom Daily reported that Obama has desperately been trying to take back the spotlight from Trump by putting himself in situations where he is sure that he’ll be seen. He did this once again today in a truly disgusting way.
Obama was called to jury duty in Chicago on Wednesday, and instead of doing his duty in a quiet way, the former president instead chose to make the most innocuous and mundane task all about himself and a very expensive trip to the courthouse. Though the jury duty rate is just $17.20 per day, Obama brought an entire motorcade to get him there safely, using our tax dollars to make an elaborate entrance at the courthouse.
“Cook County Chief Judge Tim Evans told county commissioners during a budget hearing on Friday that the former commander-in-chief, who owns homes in both Washington, DC, and Chicago’s Kenwood neighborhood, will serve in November,” the Daily Mail reported prior to Obama’s arrival.
“Evans told the Chicago Tribune that necessary precautions would be taken to accommodate security and scheduling needs. Obama, who is registered to vote in Chicago, is not the first celebrity to serve jury duty in Cook County. In 2004, legendary talk show host Oprah Winfrey was called to serve for a Chicago murder trial. Jurors can be summoned for civil or criminal trials and can be called to any of the county’s Chicago or suburban courthouses.”
“Although it’s not a place where the public can earn a lot of money, it is highly appreciated,” Evans said of Obama participating in jury duty. “It’s crucial that our society get the benefit of that kind of commitment.”
Unsurprisingly, Obama did not end up serving on a jury and was dismissed soon after his arrival. However, he still did not miss the opportunity to pose for photos for his adoring fans who turned up just to catch a glimpse of him. It’s pathetic that liberals worship him as if he is some sort of God, and even more disgusting that Obama can’t seem to get enough of it.
