Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer was once arrested for underage drinking.

That didn’t seem to be an issue during his confirmation hearings.

And yet, Democrats and the media refuse to loosen their grip from SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s neck because he said he liked to drink beer as a youth.

You know who else liked beer? And drugs?

That would be the 44th president of the United States, Barack Obama, a self-described “thug” who consumed “illegal” substances and “drank a six-pack in an hour before going back to class.”

Rare video footage has just been uncovered.

From Daily Wire:

In light of the recent attacks on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh over his alleged drinking in high school and his having thrown ice at someone in a bar, a rare video clip of then-Illinois State Senator Barack Obama has surfaced that shows the 40-year-old admitting that while he was a “young boy” and an “adolescent” he drank “a six-pack in an hour” in between classes, got in fights, was a “thug,” and used illegal drugs.

The February 2001 biographical interview was made by The History Makers, who interviewed Obama about everything from his favorite color to describing his adolescent behavior to defining what he wanted his legacy to be.

WATCH:

President Donald Trump is glad Obama is back out campaigning for Democrats.

From The Hill:

President Trump on Thursday night dismissed former President Obama’s reemergence on the campaign trail ahead of the November midterm elections, arguing it could fire up his own base.

“By the way, he’s campaigning again. That’s good news. When I was running, I swear, I thought he campaigned harder than Hillary Clinton. And we won big,” Trump said at a rally in Las Vegas on Thursday evening.

Obama burst back onto the scene earlier this month in a speech in Illinois that included blistering rebukes of Trump’s performance while in office on everything from his tax plan to his response to the deadly white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., last year.

The Obama Presidential Center is slated to open in Chicago in 2021.

However, not only has construction been halted but it was learned that the Obama Foundation will only have to pay $10 for a 99-year lease.

You read those numbers correctly.

From The Daily Wire:

The Chicago Park District has put a halt to preparations being made for the Obama Presidential Library until after a federal court reviews a lawsuit filed by Chicago residents, and federal agencies assess the transfer of historic public land to a private entity.

But in the meantime, permits and agreements filed by Chicago city officials, and with the Chicago Department of Transportation, reveal a sweetheart rent deal that any Chicago renter (or landlord) would certainly envy: the Obama Foundation will pay a mere $10 for a 99-year lease on what is supposed to be a public park.

[…]

“The idea of leasing invaluable, irreplaceable public parkland to a private entity for $10 for 99 years is astounding in this era when public lands and natural resources are under attack in so many places,” the head of Jackson Park Watch told local media. “Besides, Chicago’s finances are extremely precarious. Yes, this is symbolic, but symbolism is significant.”

About the $175 million price tag to taxpayers, from Fox News:

The planned Obama Presidential Center in Chicago is being privately funded, but on Friday city officials estimated how much taxpayers will pay for roadwork and other construction around the center: $175 million.

It was the first time city officials put a specific dollar figure on the expected cost to the public, the Chicago Tribune reported.

“These proposed investments are intended to make the (center) and surrounding Jackson Park a world-class destination on par with Chicago’s Museum Campus,” the city’s Department of Transportation (CDOT) told the newspaper, in a statement accompanying the figures.
