You’d be hard pressed to find any honest American out there unwilling to admit that Barack and Michelle Obama are heavily embedded in the nation’s cult of personality.
In fact, the former President tends to be treated as a bit of a rock star by the liberal left; a designation that has only intensified in the time since he left office. You see, the democrats understand deep down inside that Hillary Clinton was a far cry from Obama, and the choices made by the DNC in the run up to the 2016 election practically doomed their party. Obama created a standard among their constituents that no other democrat could fill…at least in their minds.
They vaulted to the Obama’s to the uppermost echelon of democratic deities, and that didn’t leave much room on top of the pile for anyone on the left to reside. In a lot of ways, the democrats painted themselves in a corner with Barack Obama, and the miserable failure of Hillary Clinton was just another symptom of their overt demagoguery.
It came as no surprise then, to those of us keen enough to notice, that Barack Obama would soon find himself in the world of entertainment with a hearty Netflix contract lined up for the former Commander in Chief. Now, it looks as though his drawing board at the entertainment corporation is filled with the same old anti-conservative message as when he was propping his feet up on the desk in the Oval Office.
Former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama have acquired author Michael Lewis’ nonfiction book The Fifth Risk — a gloomy expose about the far-reaching ramifications of a Trump presidency — to make into a Netflix series, according to reports.
The Fifth Risk, slated for release on October 2 via W.W. Norton, details the so-called “chaos and mismanagement” that occurred inside the Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, and Energy during the transition period between Obama and then-president-elect Donald Trump.
Lewis claims the Trump transition team selected candidates for key agency positions that they were highly unqualified for, while some jobs still remain vacant. “One interview in the book is with John MacWilliams, who served as the Energy Department’s first-ever chief risk officer. He conveys his worries that any shortchanging in the department under Trump could lead to a nuclear-weapons accident, a potential conflict with North Korea or Iran, or an attack on the U.S. electrical grid,” according to Deadline.
Given the popularity of wildly speculative television as of late, (I’m looking at you, Ancient Aliens), there is little doubt that this anti-Trump tirade will turn hypothetical doomsday scenarios from the source material into realistic recreations on the small screen, further associating Donald Trump with disaster and death within the mainstream media.
This is all a game of optics and message – a realm that Barack Obama has already proven his cunning within. Now, with another perch to lob divisive rhetoric from, will Obama continue his attacks on the sitting President, or will he show the restraint that the left has long believed him to possess?
