Netflix just announced on Twitter that they inked a multi-year deal to produce series and films with Barack and Michelle Obama. The shows will be part of the Netflix streaming series and the former President and the first lady will be portrayed in a heaping of various ways. This could be seen as just another job for the Obama family in their search to remain relevant in politics and culture. Or there might be another agenda hidden in their Democratic silver lining which would make their desire to work much worse than anyone thought.
Some critics believe the Obama family signed onto this deal in hopes to use Netflix to sneak their Democrat agenda into the mainstream streaming services and try to push for the Democrat candidate in the 2020 election. We’re not that far away from the next election and the Obama’s have signed a multi-year deal. That could take them right up to the election and it’s likely that they’ll use the platform to push people to vote for whomever the Democrat candidate is.
That idea has some critics of the Obama family who subscribe to Netflix expressed they were disappointed or upset that Netflix signed with them. The reaction proves once again that politics mixing with entertainment is a complete disaster. Some critics have expressed their disinterest in any programming involving the Obama’s and stated that they simply won’t watch it. Others expressed that they’ll just give it a poor rating and move on. Some Netflix users have already canceled and moved to other streaming services.
CBS provided details on the Netflix and Obama partnership (which might spell doom for Netflix): “Former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama have signed a multi-year agreement to produce films and series for Netflix, the streaming service announced Monday in a tweet.
The deal potentially includes scripted series, unscripted series, docu-series, documentaries and features. Netflix said in a statement that the content will be available to its 125 million members in 190 countries.
The Obamas have started Higher Ground Productions to produce their content for Netflix. In a statement shared by Netflix, Obama said he and Michelle Obama “hope to cultivate and curate the talented, inspiring, creative voices who are able to promote greater empathy and understanding between peoples, and help them share their stories with the entire world.”
In her statement, Michelle Obama said, “Netflix’s unparalleled service is a natural fit for the kinds of stories we want to share, and we look forward to starting this exciting new partnership.”
According to the New York Times, which first reported that the former president was in negotiations with Netflix, Obama does not plan to use the shows to respond directly to President Trump or to any of his political critics. Obama senior adviser Eric Schultz told CBS News in March that the Obamas “have lifted up stories of people whose efforts to make a difference are quietly changing the world for the better,” and as they considered their future plans, they would “explore new ways help others tell and share their stories.”
The Times also said of the negotiations in March that the deal could result in “a series of high-profile shows that will provide him a global platform after his departure from the White House.”
Some believe that Netflix knew there might be a reaction from their users when they signed the Obama’s. If people are reacting by canceling their subscription with Netflix, then Netflix might be losing some of their income. However, one could speculate that Netflix saw this reaction coming years ago when they raised prices on certain tiers of their services. The prices went up anywhere from $1 to $2 per month, not a huge increase per household, but a nice increase for Netflix based on how many subscribers they have. For example, one plan went from $11.99 to $13.99 – still cheap and much better than a lot of cable programming, but one can ponder if Netflix saw their users being upset when they signed with a political figure. However, their pricing increase is most likely due to them offering more shows at high quality. If Netflix were to keep their rates as they were, then some shows may not have been possible – like the Obama show! People need to remember that it cost money to produce shows at high quality and that any subscription under $15 is still a good deal.
The other aspect of the Obama and Netflix deal is that the Obama’s were once connected to Harvey Weinstein. People in the film industry, mostly the liberal celebrities, have always loved the Obama family. However, the connections with the grimy alleged predator who looks like the second coming of Shrek (Harvey Weinstein) have some people concerned. In fact, Barack and Michelle’s daughter Malia even had an internship with Harvey and it’s rumored that he might still owe her money.
TMZ provided this info: “Rumors began to swirl in March that 44 and the former First Lady were in talks with Netflix, but the terms of the deal were still unclear. The Obamas have always been champions of the film industry and at once had close ties with Harvey Weinstein before all his sexual assault allegations surfaced. Their daughter, Malia, even had an internship at the Weinstein Company.”
Will the Obama show talk about Harvey Weinstein and Malia?
If you’re on Netflix, then will you cancel because they’re doing a show with Obama? Or do you simply not care and won’t watch it?
If people vote it “thumbs down” enough times, then maybe it will get canceled early and people won’t have to cut ties with Netflix. Afterall, there’s is still good shows and movies, but if you need a replacement, then maybe Hulu is worth trying.

First Video of Latest Trump Star Vandal Swinging Pickaxe Shows What Happened – Spread Like Wildfire
TMZ is now reporting that the LAPD has released the first video and has made an arrest in connection with the unhinged destruction of President Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this week. In it, a man used a pickaxe to unleash his intense frustration and anger at the president and shred the star to pieces.
The suspect, who has been identified as 24-year-old Austin Clay, was arrested on Wednesday and released early Thursday morning on bail, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff Department’s online records. A department spokesman later said he had been held on bail of $20,000 on a charge of felony vandalism. It wasn’t immediately clear who posted bail for Mr. Clay but unsubstantiated rumors were circulating that the money came from a gofundme page which was set up right after the arrest.
In this latest incident, LAPD later confirmed that they received a call around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday morning claiming that someone had taken a pickaxe to President Trump’s Hollywood star. The police later confirmed that the vandal had pulled a pickax out of a guitar case and proceeded to smash the star which is located on the 6800 block of Hollywood Boulevard.
Here is more on this via Hot Air:
“It’s a victory for La Résistance, one supposes, but mainly just another demonstration of empty nihilism. Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame got attacked by a vandal with a pickaxe this morning, the latest in a series of attempts to deface the installation. This attempt was a little more complete than others:
President Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was destroyed Wednesday morning by a man with a pickax that witnesses say he concealed in a guitar case, police said.
Officers were called around 3:30 a.m. to the star’s location on Hollywood Boulevard near Highland Avenue, where they found a small pile of rubble in place of the star that Trump received in January 2007 for his role in the NBC show “The Apprentice.”
The suspect later turned himself in to Beverly Hills police, after having conducted the vandalism in full view of a number of witnesses:
Even at in the pre-dawn hours, there were a number of witnesses to the destruction, including two security guards and a Walgreens worker who was on her way to work.
“I just seen a guy going to town on, I guess, the ground or whatever,” Patricia Cox said. “I didn’t know what was going on. …
A man turned himself in at the Beverly Hills Police Department at about 4:30 a.m. in connection with the destroyed star.
Trump’s star had to be replaced after being vandalized in October 2016 by a man dressed as a construction worker. James Otis used a pix ax and a sledgehammer then, and later pleaded no contest to felony vandalism.
Since Trump announced his candidacy and his subsequent election, the star has been a magnet for visitors unhappy with the current political climate. It has been defaced by tourists and dogs, had a model of a border wall built around it, and covered with “I resist” stickers.
All of which make perpetrators feel good about themselves, and … well, that’s just about it. All of these attacks, on a sidewalk or on other such locations, are the political equivalent of masturbation. It doesn’t even have the political impact of an honest, legal protest, which requires at least some coherent thought and rhetoric. Instead of mindless lust, it’s mindless rage, directed at an object no one really cares about except the people who will have to pay to have it repaired. And repaired and replaced it inevitably will be, which makes this exercise entirely pointless except for the revenue the city will get from the fines it will impose on the perpetrator.
But hey, at least the perp didn’t have to do any real work, like make an argument or organize to change the status quo. Probably because he’s incapable of either, frankly.”
What is wrong with these people? It’s okay to not agree with the president, or have voted for Hillary Clinton instead of him, and express your own opinion about what he’s doing in office, but it’s unacceptable for an adult to do that by vandalizing. What makes it worse is that in doing so, he’s supported by many others who somehow accept this as a good expression of speech and allegedly financially support him in doing so. That, combined with the notoriety he receives from it, is a winning combination for attention deprived activists.
Bail handouts or not, until some of these vandals and anti-Trump attackers are locked up for pulling stunts like this, things won’t stop. Maybe if all these so-called “resist” people focused on what they could do for their own lives to improve them, rather than blaming all their issues on Trump being president, they would find meaning in their life, rather than lurking around in the middle of the night destroying public property.
Hillary’s Big TV Sitcom Debut Coming To CBS This Fall With An Infuriating Show Theme
“It was a privilege to experience their perspectives and discourse…”
Hillary Clinton is set to be a guest-star who will star as herself when she makes an appearance on a major sitcom. The show will also feature two other former secretaries of the state. It’s the show on CBS titled Madam Secretary and Hillary will be on the show along with Madeleine Albright and Colin Powell. They will play themselves on the show, which might be infuriating to some people as not everyone appears to be a fan of Hillary Clinton thanks to all the alleged scandals she’s been involved in.
It appears as though it might only be a single episode, but the fact that Clinton, the most scandalous of the three former secretaries, would be playing herself. People might wonder if part of her debut will show her deleting emails one at a time. Will the show go into what happened with Benghazi? Will the show discuss Clinton having the Democratic nominee ripped out of Bernie Sanders heart? Although, that part is ironic because socialist Sanders learned what it felt like to have something he worked for taken and given to someone else.
Is Hillary hoping to have the same success on the big screen that Roseanne did? Not sure that will happen considering the number of people who are very upset with Clinton and her allegations.
“The fictional secretary of state of CBS’ Madam Secretary will turn to three former real-life holders of the post when the show begins its fifth season this fall.
Hillary Clinton, Colin Powell and Madeleine Albright will appear as themselves in the episode, set to air Sunday, Oct. 7. The trio filmed their cameos on July 11, Madam Secretary‘s first week back in production.
“We’re delighted to have these three former secretaries of state be part of our season premiere,” said series creator and executive producer Barbara Hall. “It was a privilege to experience their perspectives and discourse both in and behind the scenes.”
Added executive producer Lori McCreary: “Having three powerhouses of diplomacy agree to come on our show is awe-inspiring and humbling. And that we were able to find a time in their busy schedules when they were all available is a miracle.”
In the episode, Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord (Tea Leoni) asks Albright, Powell and Clinton for advice on a delicate matter.
Albright served as secretary of state from 1997-2001 under President Bill Clinton and was the first woman to hold the post. She has appeared on Madam Secretary once before, guest-starring early in season two. She also has played herself on Parks and Recreation and Gilmore Girls.
Powell was President George W. Bush’s secretary of state from 2001-05. The former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff had an uncredited cameo on JAG in 1997.
Clinton served under President Barack Obama as secretary of state from 2009-13. She did a cameo on Broad City in 2016 and appeared opposite her Saturday Night Live portrayer, Kate McKinnon, in 2015.”
Good thing it’s just a cameo because I’m not sure Hillary’s health would hold up with the brutal schedule that some actors go through. Hours of makeup, multiple takes, and that doesn’t even include walking up and down steps in foreign countries. On that note, it might include an updated wardrobe to help get Hillary out of those pantsuits and muumuus.
Keep your eyes peeled for this episode as it will likely go viral once commentators pick apart the pieces worth sharing on news outlets and social media.
If you’re wondering about Roseanne’s success, then here’s an excerpt from Deadline: “The ratings records keep coming for the debut of ABC’s Roseanne revival last week. After setting a new record for the largest-ever total viewer Live+3 lift, the sitcom’s Season 10 opener has scored TV’s largest-ever Total Viewer L+7 increase for any single telecast on any network with a big +8.81 million viewer lift over its L+SD tally. That topped the previous high,+7.86 million gain for the 9/25/17 debut of ABC’s new drama The Good Doctor. After seven days of delayed viewing, the audience of the Roseanne premiere has grown to 27.26 million total viewers (from 18.45 million in Live+Same Day).”
Hillary probably won’t come anywhere close to getting numbers like these. In fact, this is the first time I’ve ever heard of the show Madam Secretary, so maybe it’s not that popular anyway. Having Hillary on the show now seems like nothing more than a gimmick to pick up some viewers.
