Obamas worth millions, not yet at point where they’ve made enough money

Somewhere between scandals this week, the president found time to sign financial disclosure forms indicating that he and the first lady held assets totaling somewhere between $1.8 and $6.8 million last year. Five million dollars seems like a pretty big range to those of us in the oppressed 47 percent, but if you’re one of the rich, what’s a few million here or there? It’s not like he’s going to be #FlaggedForAudit.

ABC News reports that President Obama collected between $250,000 and $2.1 million in book royalties. We’re tempted to make a “you didn’t build write that” joke, but we’ll let it slide.
