For people who preach about income equality and climate change, the Obamas have a funny way of showing their concern.
TMZ recently reported that the Obamas are about to buy a $15 million oceanfront property on Martha’s Vineyard, and internet trolls could not wait to point out the numerous ironies of this purchase.
What About Climate Change?
According to climate change doomsayers, we have a dozen years before the ocean starts to swallow us all up. If someone is a true believer in climate change, they would not invest in oceanfront property, right?
Ironically, that is exactly where the mansion that Obamas are considering purchasing sits. If they truly thought these major problems were on the horizon, why would they be sinking so much money into a property that is about to fall into the ocean?
The following tweet is typical of what the Obamas received on this front:
If I genuinely believed in 12 years coastal areas would be under water, I wouldn’t by a $15 million mansion on…Martha’s Vineyard.
Call me crazy, but it doesn’t seem like Obama is taking climate change all that seriously. https://t.co/VPqaFsovqw

What About Income Equality?
When Barack Obama took office, the couple had a net worth of about $1.5 million. The only reason it was that high was because of book advances they had reportedly received.
Now, Obama alone is alleged to have a net worth of more than $40. Together, the couple is reported to have a net worth of more than $100 million.
Adam Ford, who founded the satire site Babylon Bee, also questioned why Obama is not living up to his own expectations of people spreading their wealth around at a certain point.
Obama, 2008: “When you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody”
Obama, 2010: “At a certain point, you’ve made enough money”
Obama, 2019: “I’ll take the $15 million Martha’s Vineyard mansion on 29 beachfront acres” https://t.co/VVbdAkaq0G

The questions Ford put to Obama could be put to virtually every high-profile Democrat today.
Joe Biden became a very rich man after leaving office. Bernie Sanders is now a multi-millionaire who refuses to spread his wealth around, even though he wants to implement a socialist agenda here in the United States.
The list goes on and on, with politicians like Maxine Waters and Nancy Pelosi having accumulated personal fortunes while serving in Congress.
All these Democrats talk a great game about sharing the wealth and preaching the end of times, but very few of them actually walk the walk to prove they actually believe the nonsense they are spewing, including the golden boy of the Democratic Party, Barack Obama.
