Obama and his family were in Chicago over the weekend but it didn’t go quite as planned. The reason for the visit was to promote their $50 million book deal and to visit the site of the new Obama presidential library slated to be built this year. They were also planning to visit the Brookfield Zoo and a couple of other area attractions.
Chicago Police Chief Lawrence Wiggins told local Fox affiliate KSMPS:
“The CPD simply can’t afford to provide security every time President Obama comes to town. We’re not Palm Beach County. We spend our police protection money protecting our citizens in the inner city.”
The message is clear: Obama is an elitist who shouldn’t be demanding a city like Chicago provide protection for he and his family on vacation. For him to think that’s fair is a travesty.
