The Obamas' mansion is retarded.
Currently the craze for the über-wealthy is pure-white interiors.
The kitchen looks like a sarcastic art installation, a morgue-church.
A lovely torture cell for the kiddies.
Lying in there at night, this is what you'd hear.
Your descriptions are perfect.
No comfort or beauty there.
@ThomasWic Karate chop pillows are so '80s.
It looks so...STERILE.
I HATE the whole house ...
but I do kinda like the dunk tank.
I'm thinking of a very naughty phrase to describe this ...but parvenu works fine.
This is great!
Like Architectural Digest but funny!
Thanks for sharing the pictures of house. Every talk Michelle gives is peppered with disdain about white people but yet she wants to surround herself in white in her house.
The house does fit their bland personalities.
Maybe Michelle will apply the finishing touches.
This is the woman who chose this house. It rather suits her style...or lack thereof.
@ThomasWic this reminded me of the blog mcmansionhell.com! Here's a taste: https://mcmansionhell.com/post/187065747496/50-states-of-mcmansion-hell-campbell-county
@ThomasWic now that you have pointed out, I hate everything in that house except the greenery
Everything is either round or slanted...
Terrible all around!
@ThomasWic what an odd house.
Some of us in Wisconsin appreciate cheese & the COLOR of cheese😡,
& who doesn't LOVE high ceilings? 😜
If you were offered a room in this house, you'd teleport yourself over in an INSTANT.
I thought I'd read that the Obamas never closed on this mansion.
@ThomasWic this thread wins the internet for the week! There was a program in the UK called Through the Keyhole in the 80s where a pseudo posh presenter would go through some posh twat's house and at the end would be the reveal of who it was. This thread is like an epic parody of that show, especially if read in Lloyd Grossman's voice as a Brit. Wonderful stuff Mr Wictor!
@ThomasWic Sterile,no character, no personality, blah
Not going to talk about the oddities and ugliness of this house. But like you are pointing out, this house and how everything was built along with it's location would be a great ongoing expense.
Frankly the Obama's don't bring in a revenue stream like a CEO does where these ongoing expenses can be maintained.
So of course you're right, they got SCREWED. Let them enjoy the taste of celebrity, it's going to be joyful watching it all ripped away from them.
Hmmmm - reminds me of the exclusive palatial mansion of Isabella Rossellini from the movie,”Death Becomes Her.”
@ThomasWic And what will it look like after the Secret Service gets done with their security? Will they bulldoze the nearby homes? Checkpoints, over-watch, fences, barricades and perimeters.
😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂
@ThomasWic Awe, look at that, the home of a humble hard working family.
@ThomasWic There are almost as many Greek columns as there were on his nomination acceptance stage.
@Alex_Graham They don't know that. No taste whatsoever.
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
