Same man who once said “I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money.”
The Obamas are in the process of buying a 29-acre waterfront estate on Martha’s Vineyard. The property belongs to Boston Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck, and the house boasts seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and a pool.
Has no one told the Obamas we have only ten years until the world ends due to climate change? Do they not realize this house will be underwater soon?

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.
It’s a beautiful house.

The irony of this has not been lost on anyone.

The only way this story could get any better is if the Obamas decide to build a wall around the property.
