Michelle Obama is back in the news.
That’s never a good sign.
But you won’t believe what she just did.
Barack and Michelle Obama recently announced they were closing in on the purchase of an $8.1 million home in Washington, D.C.
“In his first major real estate transaction after leaving office, 44th President Barack Obama has purchased the Tudor style home he and his family have rented since January. At a sales price of $8.1 million, Obama’s lavish D.C. abode makes for an easier transition from the well-appointed White House.
The residence contains a whopping 9 bedrooms and 8.5 bathrooms, which is more than enough space for the family of four plus their two pups, Bo and Sunny, to unwind. Joe Lockhart, former press secretary under Bill Clinton and current executive vice president of communications for the NFL, was the previous owner and landlord.”
Critics blasted the Obamas’ decision for two reasons.
First, Obama recently gave a speech where he was paid $400,000 to restate his belief that income inequality was the defining issue of our time.
The Obamas are limousine liberals who live high on the hog – despite providing no actual services that create jobs or wealth – but blast other Americans for the success they have earned.
Secondly – and critics point out this as even more sinister – the Obamas sticking around D.C. points to an attempt to establish a shadow government to undermine Donald Trump.
Paul Sperry wrote in the New York Post:
“In what’s shaping up to be a highly unusual post-presidency, Obama isn’t just staying behind in Washington. He’s working behind the scenes to set up what will effectively be a shadow government to not only protect his threatened legacy, but to sabotage the incoming administration and its popular “America First” agenda.
He’s doing it through a network of leftist nonprofits led by Organizing for Action. Normally you’d expect an organization set up to support a politician and his agenda to close up shop after that candidate leaves office, but not Obama’s OFA. Rather, it’s gearing up for battle, with a growing war chest and more than 250 offices across the country…
… Obama will be overseeing it all from a shadow White House located within two miles of Trump. It features a mansion, which he’s fortifying with construction of a tall brick perimeter, and a nearby taxpayer-funded office with his own chief of staff and press secretary. Michelle Obama will also open an office there, along with the Obama Foundation.”
And right by his side will be Michelle Obama, who recently inserted herself into the headlines by blasting Trump for rolling back her big government school lunch mandates.
She didn’t care that they left kids hungry because no one wanted her “healthy” foods.
Trump was rolling back the Obama agenda, so she sprang into action.
Now that the Obamas are permanently installed in D.C., they will only ratchet up their efforts to destroy Trump’s Presidency.
