Obama Joined in Tahiti by Campaign Supporters Oprah, Hanks and Springsteen: Partying or Scheming?
Former President Barack Obama and wife Michelle were joined last week on their luxurious month-long Tahiti vacation by Obama campaign veterans and liberal entertainment icons Oprah Winfrey, Tom Hanks and Bruce Springsteen for a cruise on a 460 foot, $300 million yacht, named Rising Sun, owned by entertainment mogul David Geffen, reported the Asbury Park Press via Tahiti Nui TV.

Winfrey was one of the earliest public supporters of Obama and campaigned for him in late 2007 in early primary states.
David Geffen was also an early supporter, co-hosting Obama’s breakthrough Hollywood fundraiser in February 2007 alongside Code Pink co-founder Jodie Evans–who had just returned from Cuba where she worked with the Castro government against the U.S.
Springsteen announced at concerts in Australia in January after the inauguration of President Donald Trump that he was part of the ‘New American Resistance’ and that he was an ’embarrassed American’.
"We are the new American resistance."

The Daily Mail posted photos of Hanks and Springsteen, accompanied by their wives Rita Wilson and Patti Sciala, and Winfrey with the Obamas on Geffen’s yacht.
The question is are all these hardcore Obama supporters just getting together for fun in the sun in Tahiti or are they plotting the next phase of the “New American Resistance”?
