I’m sure you’ll recall the days Obama was in office. He made a variety of large, boisterous claims that many Americans bought into, hook, line, and sinker. He claimed to be for the working class and to fight back against the money-hungry top 1 percent.

However, the former president isn’t even 100 days out of office, and he’s already making some astoundingly hypocritical moves.

During campaign season Obama consistently bashed Wall Street bankers, repeatedly calling them a bunch of “fat cats” that he refused to help out. It was these adamant remarks that helped propel him to becoming our nation’s president.

However, it’s abundantly clear that our former president has changed his mind about these criticisms. Less than four months into his independence from power,  Obama has already agreed to giving a one-hour speech at a Wall Street healthcare conference.

More than that, Obama is expected to receive a whopping $400,000 for the speech from the very same Wall Street bankers he swore to never support.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) last week said she was “troubled” by the speaking fee the former president is reportedly receiving for that appearance.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) also expressed disappointment in the former president’s decision.

“I think at a time when people are so frustrated with the power of Wall Street and the big-money interests, I think it is unfortunate that President Obama is doing this,” Sanders said last week.

“Wall Street has incredible power, and I would have hoped that the president would not have given a speech like this,” he added.

It seems remarkably convenient that Obama would become so passionate before his first presidential term to win over the public with his self-assured, combative remarks toward Wall Street, only to sway these beliefs completely when it’s convenient for him to put a few extra thousand dollars into his own pockets.

Of course, the former president is now a free man and can do as he pleases. However, Obama has been ridiculed and criticized profusely for this blatant act of hypocrisy. It has become clear that his previous remarks about Wall Street were just a facade – an act to put on for the public to disguise his true intentions.

Time will tell what other hypocritical moves the former president will make as he moves through his retirement. If the money given for this speech is any indication, it is clear that we will see many more hypocritical and profoundly astonishing actions from Barack Obama in the near future.

Obama is scheduled to speak at the Cantor Fitzgerald LP Conference this September.
