Yes, Obama is in Indonesia for the Fourth of July celebration along with his lovely "wife" and kids.
In a series of events, the former failed president predictably attacked love of country and policies of Trump.
The Guardian reported:
The former US president said some countries had adopted "an aggressive kind of nationalism" and "increased resentment of minority groups," in a speech in Indonesia on Saturday that could be seen as a commentary on the US as well as Indonesia.
"It's been clear for a while that the world is at a crossroads. As an inflection point," Obama said, telling a Jakarta crowd stories of how much the capital had improved since he lived there as a child.
But he said that increased prosperity had been accompanied by new global problems, adding that as the world confronts issues ranging from inequality to terrorism, some countries--both developed and less developed--had adopted a more aggressive and isolationist stance."If we don't stand up for tolerance and moderation and respect for others, if we begin to doubt ourselves and all that we have accomplished, then much of the progress that we have made will not continue," the socialist former failed president said.
It turns out that liberals, of late, have been the least tolerant of all other opinions and have labeled everything they don't want to hear as either 'hate speech,' 'racism,' or 'fascist.' But that's just an aside--everything Obama says is pure bs.
"What we will see is more and more people arguing against democracy [such as the Antifa movement], we will see more and more people who are looking to restrict freedom of the press, and we'll see more intolerance, more tribal divisions, more ethnic divisions [inspired by Obama's administration], and religion divisions [such as anti-Christian and anti-Israel, aka anti-Semitic divisions inspired by Obama's presidency], and more violence [which is coming almost exclusively from the left]," Obama predicts.
He also predicted Hillary Clinton winning the presidency.
In spite of the fact that former presidents have class and rarely criticize their successors even at home, never abroad, Obama is fortunate not to possess any class and did so in the home of his early madrassa education.
He criticized Trump over the Paris climate accord--a gutsy, good decision.
Trump said in June that he'd withdraw from the accord and try to negotiate a better deal. Europe criticized him because they want our money for the make-believe agreement that we were already taking steps to comply with, while the biggest polluters were doing nothing to reduce their carbon footprints.
It was a terrible deal, but then again, Obama was a terrible president.
"In Paris, we came together around the most ambitious agreement in history to fight climate change," the verbally savant former president said Saturday in a speech at the opening of the Fourth Congress of the Indonesian Diaspora in Jakarta.
The Paris accord was nothing more than a weak 'gentleman's agreement' that had nothing to enforce it and parameters that made it nothing more than ridiculous to take seriously, much like intelligent people feel about Obama.

While Obama's attacks on Trump and a free economy were being made, President Trump spoke at an event that included wounded warriors at Walter Reed Medical Center.
"America is a land rich with heroes," Trump said as he personally saluted World War II veteran Harry Miller for his lifelong service and Luis Avila, a wounded warrior.
"We all bleed the same red blood," he told the crowd. "Since the signing of the Declaration of Independence 241 years ago, America always affirmed that liberty comes from our Creator. Our rights are given to us by God, and no unearthly force can ever take those rights away. That is why my administration is transferring power out of Washington and returning that power back where it belongs--to the people," Trump said, which had to anger a failed former president who believes in a nanny state and ever bigger government.
And this is, in large part, why Donald J. Trump is president and Hillary Clinton is lost in the woods.
