I’m guessing it’s okay when a Conservative politician spends this kind of money but when a liberal does it, all hell breaks loose. Nope, no double standards here. The fact that all politicians go in rich and come out even richer apparently escapes the Conservatives. No matter the party.

I guess all those talks about reducing carbon footprints and rich people living too extravagantly was all just B.S.? They're definitely the most disingenuous liars to ever leech off our political system.

Yeah, they're a bunch of jerk-offs. He fooled a lot of people back in 2007 and 08, including me I am sorry to say. He gets more and more disgusting as time goes on.

To be fair, Trump was wealthy before going anywhere near the white house, and I am sure he is not above using his newfound clout to profit handsomely, but who he was wasn't any secret. A guy like Obama goes from practically being a nobody to a cushy $180k or so job as a US Senator...that's fine...upward mobility and all. Now he is ultra wealthy and buying $15M estates in Massachusetts and it is one more great example of what a corrupt place the United States is.

Maybe he'll be protected by all the pleasant beach sand, the nice ocean breeze, and the flocks of seagulls gently flapping their wings?
In unison with Obama flapping his gums.
Bob.

Well, so much for the left's nutty prediction that the world will end in 12 years because of "climate change". I guess Darth Barry has decided that the oceans aren't really going to rise, so he has put faith into some beachfront property. Remember this at the next "climate change" debate....

I'm sure that debate will be somewhere with an airport that can handle quite a few private jets.

How is signing a $65 million book deal corrupt?

Because the books aren't actually making that money.

If you, as an elected official, do me political favors, it can be a big issue if I write you a check.

However, if you write a book, and I spend millions of dollars ordering them, it's just a book deal.
