The Obamas were very vocal after the Supreme Court ended Affirmative Action on college campuses but their hypocrisy was quickly discovered.

Affirmative action was never a complete answer in the drive towards a more just society. But for generations of students who had been systematically excluded from most of America’s key institutions—it gave us the chance to show we more than deserved a seat at the table. In the wake of the Supreme Court’s recent decision, it’s time to redouble our efforts,” former President Obama said in a retweet of his wife, Michelle Obama’s, press release.

“Back in college, I was one of the few Black students on my campus, and I was proud of getting into such a respected school,” the former first lady said. “I knew I’d worked hard for it. But still, I sometimes wondered if people thought I got there because of affirmative action. It was a shadow that students like me couldn’t shake, whether those doubts came from the outside or inside our own minds.”

But the fact is this: I belonged. And semester after semester, decade after decade, for more than half a century, countless students like me showed they belonged, too. It wasn’t just the kids of color who benefitted, either. Every student who heard a perspective they might not have encountered, who had an assumption challenged, who had their minds and their hearts opened gained a lot as well. It wasn’t perfect, but there’s no doubt that it helped offer new ladders of opportunity for those who, throughout our history, have too often been denied a chance to show how fast they can climb,” she said

Can you imagine how oppressed the Obama’s are?

The Daily Mail discovered precisely how oppressed they are in a report that showed them vacationing with a celebrity in Greece before those tweets were sent.

The Daily Mail reported:

Longtime pals Barack Obama and Tom Hanks were spotted enjoying a lavish vacation together in Greece alongside their families.

In exclusive new photos, the former US President, 61, and Hollywood star, 66, were seen having an al fresco dinner together at Cantina, a glamorous waterfront restaurant on the island of Sifnos.

Barack’s two daughters Sasha, 22, and Malia, 24, as well as his wife Michelle, 59, were also present for the meal, which took place earlier this month.

“An onlooker said that the party arrived on Paralia Seralia beach by dinghy – having come from a luxury yacht docked nearby,” the report said.

“I’m not one to get very starstruck – but seeing Obama in the flesh and so close was pretty surreal,” the person said.

“Their presence was pretty overwhelming and that definitely wasn’t lessened by the excessive security – who we even had to ask if we could use the restroom,” the person added.

The Supreme Court released its final decisions of the term Friday morning, handing down its highly-anticipated ruling on President Joe Biden’s student debt relief.

The nation’s highest court weighed the Biden administration’s plan to erase up to $10,000 in federal student loan debt for borrowers and up to $20,000 for recipients of Pell Grants.

In the Dept. of Education v. Brown, the Court ruled 9-0 that they do not have standing and tossed the lawsuit. This involves individual borrowers.

In Biden v. Nebraska, the justices ruled 6-3 against it. To be clear, the court has struck down the Biden Administration debt-forgiveness program.

On the merits of the plan, the Biden administration had relied on the HEROES Act, a post-9/11 law that allows the Secretary of Education to “waive or modify any statutory or regulatory provision applicable to the student financial assistance programs . . . as the Secretary deems necessary in connection with a war or other military operation or national emergency,” SCOTUS Blog reported.

There are several legal instances involving the cancellation of student loans. In one instance, a class action complaint claimed that the Education Department had improperly delayed or denied hundreds of thousands of petitions for borrower defense to repayment. The settlement agreement would erase over 200,000 borrowers’ student loans worth $6 billion, rehabilitate their credit, and reimburse their payments.
