There’s a word for this. Petty.

$65 million.

That’s the advance reportedly received by the Obamas for their memoirs.

Michelle’s book performed exceedingly well, while Barack’s is yet to be released.

It looks like the former community organizer is desperate to outsell his wife, which is why he admitted she used a ghostwriter.

From Free Beacon:

Former President Barack Obama wants to beat the book sales of his wife Michelle’s bestselling memoir when he publishes his own and even dings her for using a ghostwriter, according to a new report.

Obama, who has already written two memoirs, is trying to finish his third, which will reportedly cover his political career from 2004 to the present. Following the smashing success of Michelle Obama’s Becoming, which has sold more than 10 million copies and could wind up the bestselling political memoir ever, Obama is feeling pressure to beat her, The Atlantic reports:

The writing has been going more slowly than he’d expected, and according to several people who have spoken with him, the 44th president is feeling competitive with his wife, whose own book, Becoming, was the biggest release of 2018 and is on track to be the best-selling memoir in history. Speaking on the condition of anonymity, like others in this story, these sources note he’ll occasionally point out in conversation that he’s writing this book himself, while Michelle used a ghostwriter.

At the end of the day, Americans can be happy knowing these two are no longer the most powerful couple in the world.

Whoever tweets for Barack isn’t doing him any favors.

Coming in at around 280 characters, it would seem as though Obama is confirming that his time as president was completely bogus.

Young people all over the world are leading the way in the fight to protect our planet because they know their future depends on it. This Earth Day, I want to celebrate the courageous, committed young leaders who are stepping up to save the one planet we’ve got.

This generation of climate activists is tired of inaction, and they’ve caught the attention of leaders all over the world. So while this challenge is only getting more urgent, they show us the kind of action it’ll take to meet this moment.

What’s the probelm with Obama’s words, exactly?

Allow conservatives on Twitter to point it out…

I’m old enough to remember when we had a President who cared about the Earth we live on.

Here’s a video flashback of Barack talking about receding oceans and healing the planet:

More reactions:

Sounds like @BarackObama forgot who was leader of the Free World for 8 years.

This guy should run for President. He can give speeches about the moment the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal. It’ll be awesome.

Captain Platitude strikes again.

Pelosi Hands Trump A Win, Announces Plan To Pass NAFTA Replacement

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi took a few minutes away from the impeachment fever gripping the House of Representatives to announce that a breakthrough was made on Tuesday concerning negotiations for the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement on trade. The House will vote on a trade deal put together by President Trump that he has been lobbying for Congress to pass for quite some time now. Here’s more from Washington Examiner: “It is infinitely better than what was originally proposed by the administration,” said Pelosi, a California Democrat. House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal, a Massachusetts Democrat, said Democrats are entering the “final stages of text sharing” with other lawmakers “before there is any expedited period of bringing it to the floor.” Neal did not indicate specifically when the House would vote on the deal. The House is set to adjourn for the year on Dec. 20 and lawmakers typically want ample time to review trade deals. Democrats said the accord came after provisions were added addressing labor law enforcement, environmental standards, and prescription drugs, satisfying their members. Neal, the lead Congressional negotiator, stated, “This is a transformative agreement. Our constant emphasis was on enforceability, enforceability, and enforceability, we fixed that.” Democrats went on to say they won the removal of several provisions that would have led to an increase in drug prices. This trade deal is set to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement that was passed back in 1993. This is a major win for the president who has said for years the old agreement was a bad deal for the United States. The new version of the agreement says that 75 percent of a car’s parts must be manufactured in North America to be duty-free, up from the previous 62.5 percent. The deal also says that 40 to…

Woman Protesting With Antifa Rushes Police, Gets Shoved To The Ground

Published

on

Antifa has a well earned reputation for being an aggressive, radical leftist group that likes to get violent during their demonstrations. Numerous stories have come out over the last several years featuring members of Antifa punching and assaulting conservatives at rallies and other egregious acts. Recently, the group held a demonstration in Seattle where the group dressed in black hoodies, wore masks, and then started taunting police officers. Conservative journalist Andy Ngo, himself a victim of violent, radical protesters, covered the insanity. The police were protecting a group of pro-America demonstrators when some of the militants in attendance took it upon themselves to burn a thin blue line American flag while gathered at the base of the statue of John Harte McGraw, Washington’s second governor. A police officer sprayed the flag and put the fire out. One of the militants present shouted at the cop, “What the f*** is wrong with you?” Yet another yelled, “Suck a d**k, you fat motherf***ers!” Here’s more from TheBlaze: Undeterred, the Antifa faithful grabbed the partially burned flag and lit it on fire again — which made them all very happy, including one woman protesting with Antifa, who stood out due to her lack of a mask and the pink accents with her clothing. At another point amid Antifa’s antics, that same woman decked out in pink tried rushing the cops’ bike line. Video shows her running at the officers and getting shoved backward. Now, most folks at this point would acquire some mental clarity and conclude that messing with cops in this way is a bad idea. But this is Antifa we’re talking about, and given that they tend to get away with a quite a bit, the woman naturally ran at the police line again. Her second attempt to rush cops, however,…
