Obama Being Cool - Just Sits Around Smoking Dope!
Obama smoking pot again, claims bombshell new bookBy Ed Klein
Despite a couple of appearances on behalf of Democratic candidates, 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
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
In his 1995 memoir "Dreams From My Father," Obama wrote about smoking pot
"in a white classmate's sparkling new van," "in the dorm room of some
brother" and "on the beach with a couple of Hawaiian kids."
Now, according to the family friend, the former president "smokes weed once
or twice a week. He stopped while he was president, because he knew it
impaired his judgment, but he feels he can get away with it now. It's legal
in D.C., so why not?
"He gets the weed from friends who visit him. I was told he keeps a small
stash in his bedroom. [The former president and first lady have separate
bedrooms in their Kalorama mansion.] He has rolling papers and hasn't
forgotten how to roll a joint. Sometimes he'll smoke in his bedroom, and
sometimes in the backyard. But mostly he does it when he's traveling."
After he left the White House, Obama took off for French Polynesia and
stayed a month at The Brando, a wildly expensive eco-resort on the Pacific
atoll of Tetiaoa. Then he boarded David Geffen's $300-million yacht Rising
Sun and sailed the Pacific with a bunch of A-list guests, including Oprah
Winfrey. He made sure no photos were taken of him smoking marijuana while on
When he returned, Valerie Jarrett, his consigliere, and David Axelrod, the
architect of his two successful runs for the White House, urged him to take
charge of the Democratic Party's effort to delegitimize and impeach
President Trump. They argued that was the only way Obama could save his
Jarrett even lined up the promise of major financial support from
billionaire lefty George Soros.
But Obama wasn't interested in being part of the Trump Derangement Syndrome.
"Valerie says Barack mostly sits in his study playing video games and
ordering a hip new wardrobe online, including a leather jacket and $300
Prada sunglasses," said the Obama family friend.
"He takes phone calls from show-business friends like Bruce Springsteen,
Jay-Z and Tom Hanks, but he refuses to talk politics."
According to my sources, Obama was never interested in getting involved with
the dozens of leftist groups plotting the destruction of President Trump.
His role model, he told friends, was Teddy Roosevelt, who was 51 when he
left the White House; Obama was 55. He said he wanted to have adventures,
explore Africa and South America, write books about his explorations, and
make occasional speeches before adoring crowds for Democratic Party
"At one point, he became so concerned about people smelling pot around
Kalorama that he asked friends to get him some edible stuff. They got him
brownies, cookies, and gummy bears infused with THC [the chemical compound
"He had a blow up with Michelle when Malia was caught on video smoking what
looked like a joint at a Lollapalooza concert in Chicago. When the tape of
Malia went viral, Michelle blew up at him; she said it was his fault because
he set a bad example for his daughters, that it was OK to use pot.
"Barack tried to brush off the whole thing, which only made Michelle more
furious. She started yelling at him so loudly that the maids could hear.
That made Barack furious; he can't stand being yelled at; his mother had a
temper and a shrill voice. So he walked out on Michelle and slammed the door
