The Wall Street Cheat Sheet reported that President Obama has purchased a home in Asheville, NC, in preparation for his post-presidency. The White House denies these rumors.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The rumor of the purchase came from a financial media company's website, which claimed it had confirmed evidence of the future move. Combined with some of President Barack Obama's past comments on the city of 85,000, and numerous trips to the liberal enclave during his presidency, this gossip has the rumor mill turning.

Heed the call: Join Pope Francis and the war against hunger.

Asked on June 9 if President Obama had bought a property there, White House deputy press secretary Josh Earnest said, "That is not true."

Obama's last trip to Asheville occurred last year the day after his State of the Union adress, when he spoke at an auto parts plant, advocating for minimum wage hikes. He has visited the city three other times during his presidency, and took his family there for vacation in April 2010.

"It is good to be back. I love coming to Asheville," Obama said back in February 13, 2013, his most recent trip there. "Michelle and I always talk about how if-after this whole presidency thing-we're looking for a little spot."

"There are two things that keep bringing me back here," he said. "Number one is I really like the people. Number two is 12 Bones [barbecue], which I'll be stopping at on my way back to the airport."

Asheville has a lot of "Trustifarians," an anonymous real estate agent from the area told the DailyMail.

"These are pretty ordinary rich kids with trust funds who like to play at being hippies. But they pay top dollar for lovely properties, so we certainly welcome them even if these are their second homes."
