Former First Lady Michelle Obama openly shared her disdain for life inside the White House. She even went so far as to demean it as a house “built by slaves” and that residing there was like “living in a cave.”
Perhaps that has something to do with the fact the People’s House is now literally crumbling in disrepair as outlined today by the AP:
Besides the replacement of the West Wing’s heating and cooling system, repairs are also to be made to the steps on the South Portico, the side of the White House facing the National Mall. Cosmetic upgrades, including interior painting, replacing carpeting and curtains and fixing water leaks in the press office ceiling, are also on the maintenance list. Repairmen and others are expected to work around the clock during the coming weeks to complete all the upgrades by Aug. 21.
August 21st is when POTUS Trump is due to return from a temporary relocation to his sprawling central New Jersey property where he will be engaged in a working vacation during the required White House repairs.
It would seem Mr. Trump is literally having to fix the mess the Obamas left behind.
If only the American people could get their damage deposit back.
