The Obamas are reportedly buying a beachfront mansion on Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts.
Haven’t they heard that climate change is happening? Won’t their new house be underwater soon?
FOX News reported:
Obamas placed an offer on ‘mega-expensive’ estate in Martha’s Vineyard: report
Former President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, reportedly made an offer on a 29-acre estate in Martha’s Vineyard after renting it from Boston Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck over the summer.
According to TMZ, the “mega-expensive” estate sits on the beach, has two guest wings, seven guest rooms, and 6,900 square feet. Although the property is listed at $14,850,000, sources told TMZ the Obamas were paying “less.”
The Obamas previously purchased a nine-bedroom house Washington, D.C. That 2017 purchase cost them $8.1 million.
While the pair is currently in escrow, the deal could fall apart due to unspecified “contingencies,” according to the outlet. The news came as the former first family seemed poised to continue raking in millions from a variety of other opportunities.
Look at the size of the place…

It is indeed a surety of nature that rich people who preach about climate change and rising sea levels eventually find themselves in an expensive waterfront property at last. https://t.co/ctaiZRt4kx

Lifestyles of the rich and famous.
You KNOW they'd NEVER live in Chicago.
They got about as far away as they could, and still could be with their fellow America-hating snobs.

Will they stop lecturing people about climate change now?
