Perfect: Well-to-do anti-greed progressive who endorsed Hillary and socialist with 3 homes team up to slam Obama for Wall Street hypocrisy

**Written by Doug Powers

There’s a three-ring circus of hypocrisy here that makes me want to do nothing but sit back, grab some popcorn, and laugh hysterically:

Sen. Bernie Sanders believes former President Barack Obama’s plan to receive $400,000 for speaking at a September Wall Street health conference is “distasteful,” The Vermont Independent reported Friday.

Speaking with CNN’s Suzanne Malveaux, Sanders labeled the transaction “not a good idea” and said he was “sorry President Obama made that choice.”

“I just think it does not look good,” Sanders said. “I just think it is distasteful — not a good idea that he did that.”
[…]
Sen. Elizabeth Warren — another influential progressive — has also expressed concern over Obama’s speech, saying Thursday that the former President’s decision “troubled” her.

It’s certainly enough for a joke setup: “A Hillary-endorsing student debt-reduction advocate who raked in hundreds of thousands of dollars teaching at Harvard on a limited basis, a socialist with three homes and a DC special interest lamenting ex-prez who’s getting $400,000 for one Wall Street speech walk into a bar…”
