President Donald Trump recently claimed Barack and Michelle Obama had a “ten-foot wall” around their expensive digs in the Kalorama neighborhood in Washington, DC. Immediately, the mainstream media called the president a “liar” saying Trump’s claims are 100% false. That’s when one brave reporter showed up at the Obama compound. You’ll love this.
After President Trump issued a statement saying Barack and Michelle Obama had a ten-foot wall around their mansion, the Obamas made sure their cohorts in the mainstream media pushed back.
“President and Mrs. Obama built/has a ten foot Wall around their D.C. mansion/compound. I agree, totally necessary for their safety and security. The U.S. needs the same thing, slightly larger version!” Tweeted Trump.

Barack and Michelle no doubt were furious after the president pointed out they’re huge hypocrites, and that’s why the anti-Trump media came to their rescue. “Trump Lies About ’10 Foot Wall’ Around Obama’s Home. There Isn’t One,” is the piece the Rolling Stone featured following Trump’s claim.
Then, there’s Slate Magazine who reported, “When the Obamas purchased the nine-bedroom mansion for $8.1 million in 2017 they added security fencing in front of the home to fulfill the needs of the Secret Service. There is now a guard booth and fencing in the back of the house as well.”
People Magazine also defended the Obamas, but they only had pictures from January 2017. And they refused to report the entire truth about the security measures at Obama’s eight-million-dollar home, just like the other anti-Trump outlets.
That’s when conservative reporter Benny Johnson decided to find out for himself.
“Here’s what we know: Obama purchased a mansion in the D.C. neighborhood of Kalorama for $8.1 million in 2017. Beefed up security features have certainly been added to the home, including a tall pilloried wall around the front of the home and a high-tech guard tower for Secret Service to control entry to the home. However, no definitive accounts of the security features have been reported,” the Daily Caller reported.
Not only does Obama have a gated security entrance outside his mansion, but he also has seven walls, not just one. According to the Daily Caller, Obama has many walls and barricades. He has armed guards entirely blocking the suburban road where he lives. Multiple cement and iron barricades block the road leading up to the Obama mansion. A Secret Service car and agent keep people from entering the stretch of road on both ends approximately 1,000 feet in both directions.
“President Trump has often criticized Obama for having a 10-foot wall around his house. Is this true? I went to Obama’s neighborhood to find out. Not only does Obama have a wall – he has 7 walls & armed SS police blocking the road 1000 feet in each direction. So there’s that,” tweeted Benny Johnson, along with a video he made proving the mainstream media and the Obamas are the liars.

Barack Obama and his family are well secured behind their $8 million dollar mansion, and it’s a travesty the anti-Trump media would rely on old photos from January 2017 to call the president a liar. Trump supporter Sidney Powell tweeted, “#Obama & #Jarrett are purposefully undermining @realDonaldTrump with their every waking hour. They run the #Resist destructive playbook from the operations center of his DC mansion behind his new #wall.”

The Obama compound is locked down tighter than Fort Knox, and it should be, as Trump says. But what drives patriotic Americans crazy is the sycophants in the media who care nothing about facts and will go to any lengths to try to prove Trump wrong.
If the Obamas want to live like those Americans who live in border towns, then they need to get rid of all their walls, barriers, Secret Service, and security guards housed in their private security gate right outside their Kalorama home. Instead, the Obamas spend hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars on their security and call those of us who are demanding the wall racists and worse.
Well, Mr. Obama should put his own security where his mouth is and tear down every wall around him and his family. But that will never happen, we all know that. So, Barack and Michelle and their cohorts covering up for them in the mainstream media have no business lecturing Americans about border security and the wall, and they really should stop lying about how walls don’t work.
If they didn’t work, the 44th president wouldn’t have demanded not one, but seven of them. Every American is owed the truth. Obama has seven walls, so why can’t America have one big beautiful wall that works? Support President Trump. Continue to demand the wall. Your children and grandchildren will thank you.
