Barack and Michelle Obama
are the epitome of a power couple.
They’re successful, they’re
fun, they’re fierce and their
relationship is impenetrable.
Given how absolutely perfect Barack
and Michelle are, people were naturally
confused when they came across photos
of the couple’s Martha’s Vineyard house.
Though the house is about as garish and
lavish as you’d expect a former president’s
house to be, it’s also, well, kind of ugly.
“the whole point of cape cod/martha’s
vineyard/nantucket is for rich people to
pretend they’re rustic by staying in cute
stained shingle whaling shacks. this is blasphemy,”
Twitter user kathbarbadoro said.
In the photos that kathbarbadoro
shared of the Obamas’ house, you
can see the “ugly ass exterior”.
as well as a living room, a bizarre
kitchen and what appears to be a
room with only a circular couch in it.
Kathbarbadoro’s tweet about the Obamas’
house, which has nearly 8,000 likes, made
people just as angry as she is.
“All that square footage and not one place
to actually spend time in. It looks designed
to discourage anyone from lingering. Like
hostile architecture but indoors”.
“I love to hang out in my special room
that has no furniture except for one of
those weird super uncomfortable round
couches,” another person joked.
According to SFGate, Barack and Michelle
bought the “peculiar” Martha’s Vineyard
house in 2019 for nearly $15 million.
“A stark white color palette dominates the
interiors, which lack any real personality,”
the website said of the home at the time
