This hits the nail on the HEAD!
First Lady, Michelle Obama says she has a hard time waking up every day in a house that was built by slaves.
It’s time to stop griping about slavery. Yes, it was one of the worst things our nation has ever done, but many efforts have been made to rectify that (albeit, many of them have severely backfired and caused systemic poverty in the black community).
If Michelle Obama is so offended by the White House, and says that it’s built by slaves… Well, the door is right there…
But apparently she and Barack don’t exactly want to leave. They plan on sticking around once their tenure in the “House that slaves built” is over.
Robert Gehl reports that for the first time in almost a century, an outgoing President will remain in Washington D.C. after his term is up.
Why did it have to be Obama?
The President announced a few months ago that the First Family would have to stay in Washington for another “couple of years” while their youngest daughter, Sasha, finishes high school. She’s now 14 years old and will be a sophomore at the prestigious (and wildly expensive) Sidwell Friends School when her father leaves the White House.
The Independent Journal Review has discovered the home that the Obama’s will be living in. It’s a nine-bedroom, eight-bath home in Washington’s Kalorama neighborhood – where other mansions are owned by ambassadors, politicos and “titans of industry.”
The home was last purchased for $5,295,000 in May 2014.
There has been much speculation about where the Obama’s planned to live with real-estate agents working feverishly to vet properties all around the metropolitan area.
But the Obamas apparently worked privately with Joe Lockhart (Press Secretary and senior advisor to Bill Clinton, advisor or John Kerry as well) for a lease agreement on the home. IJReview describes it as “bright and airy,” with a large back patio, parking for up to 10 cars and a full mother-in-law suite (perfect for Marian Robinson, Michelle Obama’s mother, who has been living in the White House since 2009.
