Remember all the times during Obama’s presidency when he demonized the rich and pitted classes against each other. He was fond of implying that wealthy people got that way because they basically stole from the poor.
Now that he’s out of office, none of that rhetoric applies to him. He’s on his way to becoming an incredibly wealthy man and he reportedly just spent over eight million dollars on a new home in Washington DC.

Obamas purchase D.C. house for $8.1 million, new report says
Former President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle have purchased the home they’ve been renting in Washington, D.C. for $8.1 million, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
The Obamas reportedly closed on the home Wednesday.
“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,” Obama spokesman Kevin Lewis told the Sun-Times.
The 8,200-square-foot home in the Kalorama neighborhood, which was previously sold for $5.295 million in 2014, was once owned by former Clinton White House press secretary Joe Lockhart and his wife.
Whenever you hear Democrats talking about concepts like wealth inequality, just remember that those ideas don’t apply to them. They’re only talking about you.
