Yes, another lie from Obama.
To be filed with “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.”
And, “The Benghazi attack was caused by an anti-Islam YouTube clip.”
After going to great pains to assure his media allies that his unconventional Netflix deal was all about inspiring and telling uplifting stories, former president Obama got down to business with what he really had in mind: Getting Trump.
Apparently, that’s what passes for “uplifting” for the embittered ex-president. When he said “uplifting,” he meant uplifting himself.
Here’s what the New York Times is reporting:
Former President Barack Obama’s production company has bought the rights to the Michael Lewis book “The Fifth Risk,” its first known acquisition since it signed a deal with Netflix in May….
“The Fifth Risk” tracks the messy transition from the Obama administration to the one headed by President Trump, as inexperienced appointees take over important bureaucratic jobs.
This is amazing, when you think about it. Not only has Obama broken the established and sweetly first-world democratic custom of previous presidents not criticizing their successors, but he’s out there making movies about it, with his first project a movie about how bad his successor is, all as a means of showing how great he was by contrast. Is there a better way of drawing sympathy for President Trump than this sort of stunt? Don’t think so….
