Eco-warriors Barack & Michelle Obama make sure Earth Day smells as much like jet exhaust as possible

The First Couple has spent years warning everybody about fossil fuel emissions:


File those warnings about climate change under “self-fulfilling prophecies we can believe in.”

We’re used to President Obama torching an epic amount of jet fuel on Earth Day, but this year both Obamas got involved in kicking off the festivities.

For starters, Obama went to Saudi Arabia with a couple of planes:


In London, some eco-friendly helicopters were added to the Earth Day tailgate party:


I also forgot to mention that First Lady Michelle Obama wasn’t with her husband on the first leg of his trip.

Just to give this year’s Earth Day celebration extra impact, FLOTUS took a separate jet from DC to London:


Bo’s plane is probably still en route.

With at least three big jets (and whatever related air support is required), many helicopters and countless ground vehicles spewing emissions into the air, I like to think the Obamas are trying to kick in a little extra “climate change” on Earth Day just to make a point. That “point” having something to do with rank hypocrisy.
