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.

Hanks released a 2008 Obama endorsement video and narrated a 17-minute long campaign video for Obama’s 2012 re-election bid.

Springsteen campaigned for Obama in 2008 and 2012, playing songs at Obama rallies.

Obama rewarded Winfrey (in 2013), Hanks and Springsteen (in 2016) with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

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’.

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”?
