Barack Obama Tells Crowd About The Time He Was Kicked Out Of Disneyland For Smoking ?

President Obama is back in the public eye. He had been observing the time-honored tradition of giving the new president space to govern. But, given the upheaval of the Trump era, the erosion of democratic norms, and the fact that the midterms are coming up in November, Obama is back.

He gave a firebrand speech at a rally in Anaheim, California, on Saturday, but in typical Obama fashion, he left a little room for humor.

He told this gem of a story about the time that he was kicked out of Disneyland when he was young…

Yup…

The former President of the United States once got kicked out of Disneyland for smoking cigarettes.

People were here for his candor…

Others were just taken by the Kool and the Gang part…

But most just missed him…

Remember when a President talking about smoking cigarettes was controversial? Ah, what a simple time.

But let’s not forget the reason why Obama was speaking in the first place…

VOTE.
