Obama Smoking Weed, Playing Hooky According To Ex NYT Magazine Chief!
Edward Klein, the former New York Times Magazine editor-in-chief has been stirring up the DC beltway with a new book yet again. Last time, Klein discussed the inner workings of the Clinton psyche in his controversial tell-all book: The Truth About Hillary. This time, things are a bit different. In his latest work, All Out War: The Plot to Destroy Trump, Klein paints a darker picture of the deep state dynamics. But the book doesn’t come without some levity either–in fact, one of the greatest sections details what Obama has allegedly been doing during his time off in retirement!
According to Klein, his sources revealed that Obama has been spending much of his time returning to his favorite pastime–by that, we don’t mean basketball. No, according to Klein, Obama has been smoking the reefer like a maniac ever since leaving the Oval! Obama has been promising to resist Trump in subvert ways and, unlike George W. Bush who largely removed himself from politics during Obama’s tenure, Barry O has refused to say he would step aside. Which certainly raises the question: why has he largely been so silent then? And it’s not like we’re complaining, either. But it is curious!
There’s a song by the rapper Afroman that might have the answer: “Because I Got High.” The song pretty much follows the same pattern throughout–the entertainer explains something he was going to do had he not gotten high: “I was gonna clean my room, but then I got high, I was gonna get up and find the broom, but then I got high.” Is it possible that this explains the peaceful absence of the former Commander-in-chief? Klein certainly was willing to put it in print. Here’s just some of what Klein had to say:
“Barack Obama has adamantly refused to heed the pleas of his party to lead the “resistance” against Donald Trump and instead spends much of his time at his home just blocks from the White House playing video games, chatting on the phone with celebrity pals, smoking marijuana and popping cannabis-infused gummy bears.”
This startling description of Obama’s post-presidential life is based on interviews with a close Obama family friend who has been a sleepover guest at the Obama home in the Kalorama section of Washington, D.C., and who has smoked pot with the former president.
“Barack sees himself as sort of a hipster ex-president, a cool guy,” said the friend who was interviewed for my new book, “All Out War: The Plot to Destroy Trump.” “He wants to go back in terms of fashion and style to his pot-smoking days as a member of the Choom Gang at the Punahou School in Hawaii.”
Klein is veteran to the world of political hot takes and this is his 14th book following a piece on Clinton’s emails, Guilty As Sin, and another on her failure to campaign properly entitled Unlikable: The Problem With Hillary. Klein claims that Barry is getting the goods from friends who visit him and that he keeps a small stash in his bedroom. Notably, Klein claims that Barry and Michelle might be on the outs–they reportedly sleep in two separate rooms in their new Kalorama mansion.
Obama apparently is taking calls from celebrities like Jay-Z and Tom Hanks but is refusing to talk politics! Let’s hope he enjoys his weed awhile longer…this journalist is sure glad that something exists to keep him occupied!
So how much can we trust from this story? Well, it’s not something to stake your life on. But it is within the realm of possibilities…It’s not like Obama ran off to a tropical paradise then sailed around the world on a 300 million dollar yatch after he left the presidency behind him, right? Oh wait, that’s exactly what he did.
Still, Klein has been known to stretch a tale or two a bit too far–so in the meantime, hold your tongue on this one when you’re in mixed company and keep and eye out for two bloodshot ones on Obama’s face!
