As Obama Moves Out of the White House, People Noticed His Collection of “Fine Art”

America is finally done with President Obama’s reign on terror on the country. While Donald Trump is officially our 45th president, the public was abuzz at what they saw as Obama was quietly vacating the White House.

Did anyone notice Obama’s boxes? We did.

While soon-to-be former President Barack Obama packs up and leaves the White House, he’s transitioning into Kalorama, an upscale neighborhood of Washington, D.C.

Liberal presidents, such as former President Bill Clinton, have a history of stealing items from the White House as they exit.

But look what was pictured just outside his family’s new house. Did anyone look in these boxes labeled “fine art?”

Perhaps Obama learned from the Clintons, who left with almost $200,000 worth of items which should have remained at the White House, some of which they were forced to return after being publicly humiliated:

Former President Clinton and his wife, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, have sent $28,000 worth of household goods back to Washington after questions arose over whether the items were intended as personal gifts or donations to the White House.

“We have been informed that it is being shipped back, and the National Park Service is ready to receive it, take possession of it and take custody of it,” Jim McDaniel, the National Park Service’s liaison to the White House, said Wednesday.

“The property is being returned to government custody until such time that the issues can be resolved. It may well turn out that that property is rightly the personal property of the Clintons.”

After they were criticized for taking $190,000 worth of china, flatware, rugs, televisions, sofas and other gifts with them when they left, the Clintons announced last week that they would pay for $86,000 worth of gifts, or nearly half the amount.

Their latest decision to send back $28,000 in gifts brings to $114,000 the value of items the Clintons have either decided to pay for or return.

The truck spotted outside Obama’s house was for Cadogan Tate, which specializes in the moving of fine art. They have offices in New York and Los Angeles. As their website notes, “Cadogan Tate moves and stores personal possessions, commercial assets, valuable works of art and priceless furnishings for individuals, companies, auction houses, galleries, collectors and interior designers the world over.”

This moving will likely continue while Obama is in Palms Springs, California for his first post-Presidency round of golf.
