Everyone knows that Chicago runs in former President Obama’s blood.
Obama even wore a Chicago White Sox hat when he threw out the first pitch at a Washington Nationals game. He was met with resounding boos.
But Obama’s newest purchase indicates he is not returning to Chicago, but rather setting up a shadow government to undermine the Trump administration.
Yahoo News reports:
“After Barack Obama’s presidential term ended, there was a lot of speculation about whether the Obama family would move back to Chicago, stay in Washington D.C. or head somewhere entirely new.
The uncertainty about where they’d land was further fueled by their decision to rent in ritzy D.C. neighborhood Kalorama.
It now looks like the Obamas have decided to stay – not just in D.C., but in the very Kalorama home they’ve been renting. In a statement quoted by Chicago Sun-Times, Kevin Lewis, an Obama spokesperson, explained, ‘Given that President and Mrs. Obama will be in Washington for at least another two and a half years, it made sense for them to buy a home rather than continuing to rent property.’
Two and a half years is presumably a reference to when the youngest Obama, Sasha, will graduate high school (she attends D.C.’s prestigious Sidwell Friends School).
The Obamas’ next few years in D.C. will certainly be spent in style.
The $8.3 million Tudor-style home contains 9-bedrooms, 8.5-bathrooms, a cozy sitting/reading room, expansive formal gardens, and was renovated in 2011.
Inside the front door, guests are greeted by a dramatic black-and-white checked tile floor and a staircase that leads up to the second story.
The dramatic details stop there, transitioning to more muted but sophisticated decor – with the second story featuring light hardwood flooring, pale grey walls, and crisp white crown-and-base molding.
The Obama family is the top choice for a celebrity neighbor in 2017, earning 14 percent of the votes. The family garnered strong votes among both male and female voters, and across generations.”
Of course that 14% is all liberals.
The new house is certainly a swanky pad, but the Obamas can afford it because they just signed a $65 million joint book deal.
This purchase obviously means he needs to be closer to the action.
President Trump is destroying Obama’s legacy limb by limb, and that can’t possibly make the former President very happy.
Obama recently joined German Chancellor Angela Merkel to undermine President Trump’s first overseas trip.
Sean Hannity’s website Hannity.com reported:
“Barack Obama took a major swipe at one of President Trump’s core policies during a speech in Germany on Thursday, saying the United States lives in the “new world” and shouldn’t isolate itself ‘behind a wall.’
The former President was delivering a speech in Berlin to mark the 500th anniversary of the Protestant reformation.
Speaking alongside German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Obama jabbed at President Trump and his administration’s campaign promise to build a ‘great wall’ along the southern border of the United States.
‘If there are disruptions in these countries, if there’s conflict, if there’s bad governance, if there’s war, if there’s poverty; in this new world we live in we can’t isolate ourselves,’ said Obama. ‘We can’t hide behind a wall.’
Obama’s speech with German Chancellor Merkel comes as the European leader is under intense scrutiny over her open-border immigration policy, a program many blame for the massive influx of refugees from Syria in to Europe. EU guidelines allow the free passage of people between all of its member states, regardless of immigration status.”
Obama can’t publicly denounce President Trump’s actions, but he can be subtle and conspire against him.
Make no mistake – he bought that house for a reason, otherwise he’d be living in Chicago.
