REVEALED: Barack & Michelle Obama Ink Another Massive Deal That Could Net Them Millions

Oh, goody. Well deserved. SMH.

The Obamas were worth just north of a million before heading to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. in January 2009.

Any guesses as to how much they’re worth today?

Take a shot…

From LMT Online:

These endeavors — along with the six-figure pension all former presidents receive — have significantly contributed to the Obamas’ net worth, which is at least $40 million, according to a 2018 GoBankingRates estimate. The New York Post recently pegged their fortune much higher, at $135 million.

Now, the couple are set to earn even more thanks to a deal with Spotify.

From Fast Company:

Remember back in 2017 when Spotify created a position of President of Playlists that had Barack Obama’s name written all over it? Well, President Obama didn’t take that job, but he is now working at Spotify.

Today, Spotify announced that Barack and Michelle Obama’s production company, Higher Ground, has signed a partnership deal to produce podcasts that are exclusive to the streaming platform. The podcast deal is similar to the production deal the Obamas signed with Netflix. In the multi-year Spotify deal, the Obamas will develop, produce, and “lend their voices” (guessing that means host?) to select podcasts on a variety of topics. The podcast deal extends their storytelling and their mission to lift up new, diverse voices from film and television to the audio world. (And don’t tell Luminary, but this might mean that Spotify is actually the Netflix of podcasts.)

Michelle says President Trump has put her “family’s safety at risk” in an excerpt from her book.

Why?

Because she’s trying to sell a book, no doubt.

Otherwise, it makes little sense.

Here’s what she wrote:

“What if someone with an unstable mind loaded a gun and drove to Washington? What if that person went looking for our girls?” she wrote in her book, according to The Washington Post. “Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family’s safety at risk. And for this I’d never forgive him.”

Enter Trump, who goes for the jugular – mostly aimed at Barack:

Trump explains how Obama depleted the military during his eight years in the Oval Office. Michelle, it would seem, is seeking to make headlines.

She wants to continue to divide the nation as she and her husband have done since 2008.

She is smart. Very smart.

Like, smarter than every person she’s ever been around. At least, that’s how she made it sound.

While in London, Michelle’s arrogance was on full display.

She noted, “I have been at probably every powerful table that you can think of, I have worked at nonprofits, I have been at foundations, I have worked in corporations, served on corporate boards, I have been at G-summits, I have sat in at the U.N.: They are not that smart.

Michelle added, “We mistakenly thought that Barack Obama was going to erase hundreds of years in history in eight years—that’s ridiculous to think that could happen.

Save conservative media!

Dems Demand Bolton Testify After Book Allegedly Says Trump Withheld Ukraine Aid (Details)

‘Allegedly’ is the keyword…

Democrats really, really, really want to see former NSA John Bolton testify before Congress. They believe he knows something about President Trump and Ukraine that the administration is hiding. This is a long shot. First of all, if Bolton knew something it would’ve been leaked to a reporter by now. Secondly, as you’ll see in the Twitter thread below, Bolton’s lawyer has no clue what Dems are talking about. From MSN via NYT: President Trump told his national security adviser in August that he wanted to continue freezing $391 million in security assistance to Ukraine until officials there helped with investigations into Democrats including the Bidens, according to an unpublished manuscript by the former adviser, John R. Bolton. The president’s statement as described by Mr. Bolton could undercut a key element of his impeachment defense: that the holdup in aid was separate from Mr. Trump’s requests that Ukraine announce investigations into his perceived enemies, including former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and his son Hunter Biden, who had worked for a Ukrainian energy firm while his father was in office.

Rashida Tlaib Retweets Story About Israelis Killing Palestinian Boy, But It Never Happened

The definition of ‘fake news’…

John Salvatore

Rashida Tlaib hasn’t exactly been shy about how much she dislikes the nation of Israel. It’s quite stunning to see coming a member of Congress, if you think about. But because Rashida is a Democrat, it’s fine. The mainstream media will give her a pass for hating Israel because she’s a woman and she’s Muslim. Obviously, that doesn’t make it right. Yet, having a “D” at the end of your name can do wonderful things for a person’s career. Here’s what she retweeted: https://twitter.com/Ostrov_A/status/1221089689328869376?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1221089689328869376&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Frashida-tlaib-tweets-fake-story-about-israelis-killing-palestinian-boy%2F Reactions: https://twitter.com/AviKaner/status/1221097453698592769?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1221097453698592769&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Frashida-tlaib-tweets-fake-story-about-israelis-killing-palestinian-boy%2F https://twitter.com/KyleWOrton/status/1221096740901748737?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1221096740901748737&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Frashida-tlaib-tweets-fake-story-about-israelis-killing-palestinian-boy%2F During a speech in Miami, President Trump called out “the squad” in a way that not many people in the public eye ever have. And the way he did it is the exact reason he defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016, and, GOD-willing, why he’ll be re-elected this coming November.

Won’t bring it up.” https://twitter.com/atrupar/status/1213232601441460231?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1213232601441460231&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fthehill.com%2Fhomenews%2Fadministration%2F476737-trump-lashes-out-at-squad-they-hate-jewish-people From The Hill: Trump sparked outrage on Capitol Hill in August when he said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu should block Tlaib and Omar from visiting the country. Israel later did so, despite earlier vows by officials to welcome any members of Congress to the country. […] Omar in particular has raised eyebrows with her comments about Israel, suggesting that powerful Jews inside and outside of Congress are pushing “allegiance to a foreign country” over their support for the state.
