I think I've figured out these climate scammers....you can have personal jets, yachts, multiple mansions and it's totally okay as long as you don't deny that you're destroying the planet. However, a "climate denier" whose carbon footprint is millions of times less is the scum of the earth because he is denying his tiny carbon footprint is destroying the planet.

It depends on what you call wealthy. The Obamas entered the White House with a $1.3 million net worth in 2008. That has since grown to $40 million, according to a 2018 estimation.

Obama earned $400,000 a year during his eight years as president, and he earns an annual pension of about $200,000 as a former president.

One more thing. He hammered, even demonized people who were making good money while they were president, yet here he is.

Wow! I bet the Obamas are the very first Presidential family to earn way more after they left the White House than they did before! Somebody alert the press!

All I can say is that he doesn't give a **** about our climate, making him a hypocrite.

So shouldn't Trump convert all of his properties to burn that beautiful coal, or is he a hypocrite too?

100 years ago it was legally set at age 10-12 in most US states with the exception of Delaware that somehow determined age 7 was appropriate.

Somehow people convinced themselves that it was morally ok to not permit any female or males of color to vote in the US. Black slaves were counted as a fraction of human.
