Obama Unveils The $500 Million Obama Presidential Center In Chicago

A memorial that would make pharaohs jealous, the center will sit near a lagoon that runs into Lake Michigan in the Jackson Park neighborhood and will feature three buildings: a museum, a library, and “forum,” which will house an auditorium, restaurant, and public garden.

    The minaret will be added later.

    You beat me to it…..you islamophobe.
    I wondered how many prayer rooms there were.

    But surely a drive by shooting range….boutiques selling the latest antifa fashions….

  • Clink9

    It does look islamic.

    • Frances

      It looks butt-ugly. Apologies to butts.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Isn’t it amazing that these losers can’t get one bridge built in under 15 years and a billion dollars and yet their personal Cenotaph comes in on time and on budget?

  • ontario john

    Well, its not as if they have any problems in Chicago, they need to spend the money on.

  • Where’s his statue?

  • For some reason that roof access reminds me of the scene in Star Wars when Luke blows up the Death Star. Stay on target! Stay on target!

  • JoeSchmuckatelli

    So, “forum” is the new word for mosque?

  • QiPo

    The money junkie can’t quit spending OPM. With any luck this monument to greed, corruption, and socialism will sink into the lagoon. A failed presidency gets a 1/2 billion dollar fake monument? WTF is wrong with this nation?

    • ontario john

      Haven’t you being watching CNN? Its Trump’s fault.

  • pdxnag

    In a tribute to Obamacare we could pass a bill mandating that everyone visit, or face an IRS penalty/tax.

  • Spatchcocked

    With the Eric Holder racial healing room and the Reparations Wall for the youths to climb on…….and the not to be missed “I didden do nuffin” diorama…..
    Free weaves for the first visitors on opening day.

  • mobuyus

    Transgender washroom facilities aplenty on every floor and a virtual forrest of trees outside for the trans specied visitors. The whole darn thing is the wrong colour though, it should be beige.

  • Raymond Hietapakka

    He did a lot for poor people.

    • tom_billesley

      He did for a lot of poor people.

      • mauser 98

        made a lot poorer
        48+ million on food stamps

  • The chipping greens on the roof will be useful.

  • Given Obama’s “nontraditional love interests” I am surprised that in an area that’s known for violence and growing Islamic influence that he will go anywhere near a building over one story tall much less be involved with its construction.

    And 6 months after completion it will be known as gangbanger heaven.

  • ontario john

    So we have Obama, Clinton, and the Democrats ranting every day about Russia interfering with the U.S. election, but all the French media is excited today, that Obama has released a video backing Macaroni in the French election. And Canada is not to be left out, with that twit Dion speaking in favour of Macaroni. And the media is strangely quiet about it.

  • Krista Kay

    ‘Obamastan’, with “real tools to create change in their own communities.”


  • Editor

    Although half a billion, with a B, may sound like a lot, don’t worry, a lot of that money will go straight to the Obamas in consulting fees, speaking engagements, do-nothing jobs for Michelle and the daughters, memoirs, their personal archive (properly expunged), healthy cafeteria menu guidance, etc. I bet you barely half will actually go to construction of the mosq . . . sorry, building.

      Most previous presidential libraries were financed by the Saudis. Perhaps Iran will bankroll this one.

      • Editor

        God know they have the cash. Pallets of it I hear.

  • Maggat

    “which will house an auditorium” A perfect location for the giblets waiting for him and his henchmen.

    • Watchman

      A big Choom Room?

  • The Butterfly

    I think we should name it Tran Central Station in honour of Michelle Obama.

  • Uncommunist

    Hopefully visitors will riot and burn the dump down.

  • dance…dancetotheradio

    Why are there Presidential Libraries?
    Shouldn’t it just be another wing in the Smithsonian that gets attached like another cell in a beehive when a President retires?
