The Obama’s Ditch Palm Springs for Private Island Getaway

Oh the perks of having a friend who owns a private jet..and a private island.

The President…I mean former President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle, were recently spotted leaving their post presidential getaway in Palm Springs only 3 days after arriving.

According to TMZ, the couple boarded a private jet owned by friend and longtime Obama supporter, Richard Branson, on Monday to escape the city's rainy forecast for some fun in the sun to an undisclosed private island in the Caribbean – also owned by Branson.

Branson has been an outspoken devotee on issues concerning Obamacare as well as climate change – both in which are near and dear initiatives to Obama's heart.

Mr. Branson, can I be your new friend for 2017?
