Barack and Michelle Obama love to hobnob and rub shoulders with the celebrity class, even though it’s hard to prove that the Obamas, themselves, really have any class at all. They left the taxpayers with one heck of a bill for all their luxurious and exorbitant vacations while in the White House, and now they are bumming their way around the globe on yachts alongside the rich and famous.
On one such recent cruise aboard David Geffen’s $300 million dollar super-yacht, Barack and Michelle had the thrill of being accompanied by Tom Hanks, Bruce Springsteen, and Oprah Winfrey.
Tom Hanks stated he got screwed by the Obamas when Michelle decided they all needed to disembark the yacht and go for a bicycle ride. According to Hanks, everyone got a nice, shiny new bike to ride except for him. He got stuck with a rusty old girls bike that had only one speed while all the others had fancy mountain bikes.
Mad World News explained:
While on a live TV talk show, Tom Hanks revealed that he got “screwed” on vacation with Barack and Michelle Obama. Hanks’ account of what happened was shocking, considering that the Obamas’ million dollar vacations since leaving office have been kept extremely secretive. Hanks was candid about his plight on a French Polynesian island with Barack and Michelle. You don’t want to miss this.
Tom Hanks was on the Stephen Colbert show when he was asked about his super secretive trip with the Obamas, Bruce Springsteen, and Oprah on David Geffen’s $300 million dollar super-yacht. While Oprah’s been keeping silent, Hanks opened up. Although he was laughing, it’s obvious that he felt out of place and uncomfortable.
“I’ll tell you one thing that happens to Tom Hanks, little Tommy Hanks on that trip,” he said before declaring, “He gets screwed,” but “in the bad way, in the pejorative way, not in the delightful way.” Hanks went on to describe a bike riding venture on a French Polynesian island, and knowing Michelle and her fitness obsession, there is no doubt this outing was all Michelle’s idea. No one else would want to get off a super-yacht to ride bikes uphill.
Hanks wasn’t too thrilled to disembark the yacht for a bicycle ride:
While experiencing a “crazy Love Boat, Sandals resort fantastic” vacation as Hanks described it, he recalled, “They say, ‘hey, tomorrow let’s get, we’ll get some bikes.’” He noted, “an array of bikes have been procured for us, rented from all corners of Polynesia and Tahiti, Bora Bora.” But when “everybody gets on their bikes and takes off” — including Secret Service — he’s left with the “one piece of junk, hunk-o’-junk bike,” Essence reports.
Hanks was laughing, but behind the humor, he’s thinking “this really sucked.” Hanks says sarcastically, “I had a bike that you couldn’t deliver newspapers with.” What proceeded was an “up, up, up”-hill ride on a “rusted,” “undersized girls’ bike” with only “one gear,” as Hanks humorously describes.

I’m just guessing here but, knowing how spiteful the Obamas can be towards anyone who has anything nice to say about Trump as Hanks did when he said America would be alright under Trump, Michelle probably special ordered that bike just for him.
It’s called paybacks for the guy who doesn’t hate Trump!
