Obama Threatens Russia - Then Goes On Vacation to Hawaii Mike Vance December 17, 2016 News Obama threatens Russia and claims he will send a"clear message" to them since they hacked the DNC computer. Then he goes on vacation to Hawaii. I guess there are many different ways to send a message. Not sure going on vacation to Hawaii is one of them. Obama Goes on Vacation to Hawaii Per NBC News: President Barack Obama on Friday defended his early response to suspicions that the Russian government attempted to influence the 2016 election and appeared to threaten retaliation against those plotting cyberattacks against America. “Our goal continues to be to send a clear message to Russia, and others, to not do this,” he said, adding “Because we can do stuff to you.” He urged that U.S. investigations of cyberattacks should not become a “political football.” “I think we handled it the way it should have been handled,” he said during his final scheduled news conference of 2016. Once he completed his final presser he hopped on a plane and is headed to Hawaii for a two week vacation. Surely Putin is quivering in his boots after this strong message Obama is sending to him. And for those of you keeping track at home, Obama's vacations have cost taxpayers over $85 million at this point. At least he's almost done ruining our country.
