AceShowbiz - Former President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle are reportedly eying a $15 million mansion at Martha's Vineyard estate. The couple has allegedly made an offer to purchase the 29-acre estate after renting it from Boston Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck over the summer.
According to TMZ, the "mega-expensive" estate has two guest wings, seven bedrooms and 6,900 square feet. The house sits on Edgartown Great Pond with a deck overlooking the water and a path leading from the house down the water.
The property is listed at $14,850,000, but sources say the Obamas are paying less. The estate is currently in escrow and it's not a done deal just yet, meaning that it's possible it could fall apart.
While nothing has been confirmed yet, the report of the Obamas' alleged purchase of the multimillion dollar mansion has irked many Republican and Donald Trump supporters. They are criticizing the president for his supposed lavish lifestyle and accusing him of using taxpayers' money to fund it.
"Mist be nice to reroute the countries wealth into your own pocket and then buy a 15 mil$$ estate," one reacted to the news on Twitter. Another called the couple "hypocrites," writing, "Obamas buying a $15 million estate on Martha's Vineyard? Gosh America sure sucks, right Michelle? #hypocrites."
"I would like to be able to make $40 million in eight years with the salary of $250,000 a year. That's amazing how you can do that isn’t it? Could they be a little crooked????" a third user questioned where they got the money from. Another slammed the former First Family, "Disgusting cash in on a total fraud of a family ...."
Another targeted the Obamas and other Democratic politicians, "The Obamas, Clintons, even Bernie seem to amass the bucks on relatively modest government incomes while demonizing the rich who for the most part actually build stuff or supply services that people want."
Someone else came with a serious accusation, "I CALL BULLS**T. YOU DON'T MAKE THAT SORT OF MONEY ON ONE BOOK. IT'S LIBERALS SHOWERING THEM WITH $$$. CLASSIC CORRUPTION."
