Skip to comments.Omission Watch: Vanity Fair Says Obamas 'Making Themselves Super Rich'(DUH!)[BARF ALERT!]

The same media elites are are eternally suspicious of all Trump business activities -- a fair topic for investigation -- have generally demonstrated a dramatic incuriosity about the Barack and Michelle Obama wealth boom. Whatever coverage bubbles up comes with a You-Go-Guys tone. Last August, TMZ reported the Obamas were buying a $15 million mansion on Martha's Vineyard. Non-Fox network coverage? Zero. In December, they actually bought said mansion for $11.75 million. Non-Fox network coverage? Again, zero.
Now Joe Pompeo at Vanity Fair is addressing the Obama Boom in a chirpy piece on the "Obamoguls" and how their wealth is "Propelled by still-potent political hope." Here's how NBC media reporter Dylan Byers summed it up in his Byers Market newsletter:
"Barack and Michelle Obama [are] making movies and shows for Netflix, podcasts for Spotify, best sellers for Penguin Random House, mega-events for Live Nation and making themselves super rich along the way," Vanity Fair's Joe Pompeo writes in a deep dive into the couple's previously reported media deals.
The numbers: "Penguin Random House reportedly paid... $65 million"... The Netflix deal "is rumored to rival their publishing payday" ... The Spotify deal is "said to be in the $10 million to $20 million range."

Finally, the Obamas are covered in a magazine that is topical.
Maybe they can show us a blow up of Michelle’s grill, gritting her teeth in anger...
It sure was. Next up is Prince Harry and the succubus.
The Queen is said to want forensic examination of her deals. It can start with the diamond necklace she was given by a charity when she showed up. Pay to play. Not expensive. Probably less than $1k..but it’s only the beginning.
More than ever am I convinced Obama was a sort of Manchurian candidate.
The Deep state picked him, used their controlled corporate media to manufacture his and Michelles fake public image. Obama let them and the DC permanent bureaucracy run the show, and they allowed him a platform to push some of his racialist #BLM nonsense. When the cynical deal was over in 2017, everyone agreed he should go out and grab as much cash as possible, and ride off into the sunset.
Although I dearly love brick and mortar book stores with printed books (I am a Luddite) it is difficult to walk past so many sections of “get your Michelle Obama worshipping books here! Get ‘em while they’re hot.”
Coffee table Michelle photo books, heartfelt mushy stories she tells, quotes and quips she says, adulatory puff biographies, the golden era of Michelle as First Lady, more picture magazine style books, she’s again on five or six new magazine covers....
Yes, some Hussein Obama ones, too-—a few hundred.
Solution to the meaning of this:
Next Dem presidential candidate will be Michelle Obama, beating Oprah and Hillary. Others in single digit percentages at the brokered convention.
Guy at fast food line:
“I’m voting for Trump.”
“What are you a white supremacist racist? I’m calling Antifa.”
It’s good to be king.
As if Cash for Clunkers wasn’t a money making scheme. And the Stimulus Package. And the Iranian money. And his flexibility. And obamycare. And...
They play for the right team, therefore have money thrown at them.
Probably even delivered on pallets, too.
The most EVIL administration in the history of this republic. Criminal, Vice Criminal, etc, etc, etc.
Hey, at least they didn’t do anything impeachable. /$
And I remember when the MSM was screaming because President Reagan was accepting $250,000 for a speech given in Japan after his presidency.
I haven’t seen a single Obama book or Obama TV show.
Obama, Biden, Clinton, Comey, Holder, Brennan, Lynch etc.,etc. Criminal, Vice Criminal, Sociopath of State, etc., etc.,
3rd world politicos with nukes. “In order to form a more perfect union”???
In order to secure a more CRIMINAL STATE.
The thought of them is mind-boggling, given the FF vision of the fledgling republic.
Why not? "I've got my eyes closed." (to quote the Three Stooges on why Curly couldn't see something.)
Michelle Obama's memoir "Becoming" could become the biggest-selling autobiography ever, its German publisher said, expressing optimism that husband Barack's forthcoming account of his two terms as president will also be a hit.
The former first lady's recollections, for which she received a reported advance of more than $60 million from Bertelsmann's Penguin Random House division, has sold 10 million copies since it came out in November.
Barack Obama has also signed with Penguin Random House to publish his White House memoir. Bertelsmann hopes it will be published this year although no firm date has yet been set.
earlier (2017 on Vox website)
Barack and Michelle Obama each just sold a book in a joint deal that appears to be bigger than any previous presidential book deal in history. Reportedly, they are making $65 million, which is an unprecedented amount of money for a presidential memoir. Its a move that signals the publishing industrys faith in the enduring value of a book from the Obamas and the belief that if Barack Obamas memoir is good enough, it might become a genuine American classic.
He’d still just be Dick Durbin’s counterpart if ANYONE who could would have upheld the Constitution.
Grifting for the chump change of Senators.
Obama’s payday...For doing the bidding of the interests that groomed him and put him in the WH FUBO is now collecting...Lots of great deals are being steered his way...Just how it works...
Nothing but fckn grifters.
Michelle Obama - Barack knows that we are going to have to make sacrifices; we are going to have to change our conversation; we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place.
I was in Barnes & Noble today and they still have Becoming prominently displayed.
It's all money laundering to pay back the obozos for services rendered during his years in office. And the billions in cash air-freighted to Iran? How much of that came back to them?
