The hard work of the American people was the source of Michelle and Barack Obama’s freeload while living in the White House for eight years. They, of course, became used to this certain lifestyle and this is why they keep living this kind of extravagant life now, out of office.
Since moving out of the White House among other things, they spent $8.1 million on purchasing a mansion in D.C in which they have been living since moving out of WH.
The Obamas just bought the Tudor-style home that boasts 9 bedrooms and 8.5 bathrooms. The home was previously owned by Joe Lockhart, who served as press secretary under Bill Clinton and is the current executive vice president of communications for the NFL.
The Obamas are paying for their new home by cashing in on book deals and traveling the country on the paid speaking circuit, which is seeing them make as much as $200,000 a speech. The six figure annual pension Obama is given also ensures that the former first couple will be living the high life for quite some time.
Oh and this is so ironic. Their neighbors are the first daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner. They also live in this neighborhood. I am sick of the Obamas, I want to take a break from them.
