Immediately after leaving the White House, Barack and Michelle Obama went on another lavish vacation to the French Polynesian islands with a star-studded posse that included Tom Hanks, Bruce Springsteen, and Oprah. The main purpose of the trip was to turn as much celebrities as possible against President Trump and his agenda. While the Obamas may have succeeded with Springsteen and Oprah, however, Hanks wasn’t that easy to ‘be bought’. After the trip, the famous actor has broken his silence about the vacation, describing a horrible biking experience and awkward conversations with Obama, making it clear that he was not comfortable at all during the entire time with the former president and his family.
Hanks recalled that when the Obamas went to get their bikes, the bike trip ended up being a big problem.
“An array of bikes have been procured for us, rented from all corners of Polynesia and Tahiti, Bora Bora,” Hanks said. The Academy Award winner added that he soon realized he was ‘eating’ the Obamas and their Secret Service’s dust, being left with an “undersized girls’ bike (with only) one gear.”
Hanks also said that anytime he would start a conversation with Obama about politics, the former president would constantly interrupt him and tell him that what he was asking is “classified.” The actor said that this happened about three times a day.
Though Hanks has a sense of humor about it now, it’s clear that he did not enjoy this trip with the Obamas at all. That should come as no surprise, given that this “vacation” was nothing but a business trip with the intent of persuading Hollywood power players to resist against Donald Trump, reports Patriot Beacon.
