Barack Obama Has One Complaint About His Family's New Home
Going door to door in Washington D.C.’s Kalorama neighborhood could yield some interesting (and famous) results.
During an appearance on “Ellen” last week, former First Lady Michelle Obama revealed some of the family’s adjustments to life after the White House — including the novel concept of a doorbell.
“Now I have a door and a doorbell, and people actually trip out when I come to my door and I open it,” the former First Lady told Ellen DeGeneres.
After moving out of the White House, the family decided to stay in Washington, D.C. — at least until Sasha, who is currently a junior, finishes high school.
“What I learned in those eight years is that home is where we make it,” Obama said on the show. “We were in the White House for eight years, but it wasn’t the house, it was us in it. It was our values and our love for each other. We just moved that to another house.”
However not everyone is happy with the move. Despite there being nine bedrooms in the house, Barack Obama thinks he was cheated out of space, Michelle revealed. The former president complains about his lack of closet space and the fact that his office is the smallest room in the house.
The Kalorama neighborhood is favored by many famous faces. Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos has a home there, as does Ivanka Trump. Former presidents William Taft, Warren G. Harding, Herbert Hoover, and Franklin D. Roosevelt all took up residence in the neighborhood during their lives.
