Michelle Obama reportedly rented a $23 million home in the Hollywood Hills this week amid speculation the former first family is considering a move to Los Angeles.

According to TMZ, Obama stayed in the new-construction pad known as the “Shark House” because it is outfitted with an “open-air aquarium” with various types of sharks. The entertainment outlet said there is “incredible security” at the home, but it was shut off while Obama stayed Monday and Tuesday. “One realtor, who’s very well connected in the area, tells TMZ the buzz is that Michelle might be scoping out the neighborhood and/or that particular house to set down roots,” the site reported.

Mercury News reports:

The “ultra modern, glossy and boxy” home is a spec house, built for ultra-exclusive clientele to rent or buy. The three-story home has seven bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, two pools, a “wellness center,” a massage room, a movie theater, a wine room and a special freezer for tequila and vodka.

As for the shark “pond,” real estate agent Sam Real of Nest Seekers International told Curbed Los Angeles that it is an uncovered 300-gallon tank, filled with stingrays, starfish, small houndsharks and other types of sharks. Behind the pond rises a living wall. Several stepping stones cross the tank, so that homeowners can watch their fish, “do yoga or read a newspapers and whatever you want to do,” Real said.

The Obamas have plenty of reasons to spend more time in Los Angeles. Last year, the couple’s production company — Higher Ground Productions — inked a lucrative agreement with Netflix to produce content for the streaming giant. During a fireside chat at a Las Vegas technology conference, former President Barack Obama shared his vision for joining forces with Netflix, saying that he wants to “train the next generation of leaders.” In April, Higher Ground announced that it will bring a biopic of slavery abolitionist Frederick Douglass to the streaming giant. Obama’s production company signed in an agreement in June with Spotify to produce podcasts exclusively for the digital music giant.

According to Fast Company, the company will “develop, produce, and lend their voices” to podcasts on Spotify.

“We’ve always believed in the value of entertaining, thought-provoking conversation. It helps us build connections with each other and open ourselves up to new ideas,” former President Obama said in a statement. “We’re excited about Higher Ground Audio because podcasts offer an extraordinary opportunity to foster productive dialogue, make people smile and make people think, and, hopefully, bring us all a little closer together.”

    The Obamas have spread more hate and created more division than anyone else in our country other than Al Sharpton, Jesse, Jackson, Reverend Wright, and Faraghan! They have become extremely rich and could care less about the average Americans! They started all the lies about our police and military! What kind of family are they? They are never together! They are never with their so called daughters! They were suppose to stay in Washinton to let the youngest finish school! They are all over the country and the girls are on their own and all of them extremely rich. Where has all these millions come from?

    Obama shared his vision for joining forces with Netflix, saying that he wants to “train the next generation of leaders ANNDDDD AOC got a ten million dollar netflix deal- training = paying off or rewarding… the Chicago style of governance.
    AOC also had Obama’s friend and confidant George Soros and the Young Turk Islamist’s fund AOC’s and Omars and Tlaib’s primary campaign and provided them with Campaign managers tied to Open Borders Foundations.
    “train the next generation of leaders- Leaders of what? Seems to be the DNC Leadership.. led by Open Borders and Islamist activism- ‘The Freshmen’.
    The DNC did nothing to prevent ‘the freshmen’…
    The entire DNC gets donations from Soros…
    Soros plans for 80 more ‘freshmen in the 2020 via primary’ing out the ‘ole leaders for new leaders’…. led by Open Borders and Islamist activism.
    This is Obama’s New Leaders.. this is the ‘Fundamental change’ process… the DNC becomes a Socialist Party with massive Muslim activism- New Leadership my rear end… this is a subversive takeover enabled by a lack of voter participation in Deep Blue Districts… just like done with AOC.
    Considering the price of the Primary race being very low, the DNC is being taken over for a bargain basement price of ><80 million dollars…..
    All that is required are hungry, broke, immoral and unprincipled individuals to get their campaigns and managers paid for… then… like AOC… get millions later…one million dollar Soros funded book deal 60 days in office, 10 million Netflix deal 90 days in office as they 'ARE TRAINED'.. to do what?
    Scream incessantly about Racism and any other 'Ism' needed to silence opponents to the 'Fundamental Change of America'.
    You probably thought Obama was the progenitor of that term didn't you… never seeing the association with Soros who wishes, admitted before a camera, he believes he can and should govern the planet.. and Jihadist Islamism who wish to eliminate America's guidance for Liberty via Democratic principles.
    Obama, Soros, AOC, Omar, Tlaib… all peas in a pod!
