Barack Obama has two years left in office, and he’s already scrambling to find a new job.
Rumors are swirling that Obama is planning to move to New York City after he leaves the White House and become a professor at Columbia University.
Obama has had strong ties to Columbia University ever since he transferred there from Occidental University in 1981. Obama also has teaching experience from his time as a professor of constitutional law at University of Chicago from 1992 until 2004.
Yes, we know that this is extremely ironic since Obama hates the constitution. We’re confused too.
Now, a source close to the president has revealed that he wants to go back to both his teaching roots and his alma mater after leaving office.
“President Obama is considering his next move after leaving the White House,” the source said. “It is clear that he is giving thought to his work with his foundation, the creation of his presidential library, and how he could continue to work in an influential role. There has been talk about him teaching at Columbia Law School, but nothing has been confirmed.”
Both the White House and Columbia University declined to comment on this.
This news comes just months after Malia and Michelle Obama were spotted the Columbia campus. They also looked at the Barnard and NYU campuses in New York City as they continue to look for colleges for Malia to attend in the fall of 2016.
