Michelle Obama spent the last decade working with the fake news media to hone a carefully managed public image.
All of that work just went up in flames.
And now Michelle Obama suffered this massive humiliation when one game-changing truth got out.
During the 2012 campaign, Barack Obama and his fellow Democrats stripped the bark off Mitt Romney with attacks on his past work as a private equity fund manager and Romney’s perceived fondness for Wall Street.
Democrats painted Romney as an out-of-touch elite while Obama saved General Motors and whose administration worked on behalf of Wall Street.
Now that the Obamas are out of office they can do away with the pretenses.
Since leaving the White House, the Obamas are now living the royal life.
Barack and Michelle signed 65 million dollar book deals.
The streaming giant Netflix entered into an agreement with the Obamas to produce documentaries and films for the platform.
No details of the amount of the contract were released, but one can imagine Netflix forked over a princely sum.
And the latest development in the Obamas trading on their name to line their pockets is Michelle Obama’s book tour.
On November 3, Michelle Obama is scheduled to appear at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey for a “Moderated conversation with former First Lady Michelle Obama.”
The top tickets are going for $4,200 a piece.
$2,500 “VIP Packages” allow ticket holders entrance in a “meet and greet” where you can take a group photo with the former First Lady.
Selfies and autographs are not allowed.
The cheapest ticket for the event runs at $144.
This is not an event for the average family or the little guy that the Obamas spent eight years claiming they fought for.
And it certainly isn’t for the residents of Newark – 52 percent of which are black.
The median income of a Newark resident is just over $16,000 a year, which is $12,000 less than the median income of an individual in the United States.
In Newark, the median family income is $34,000, which is $19,000 lower than the median family income in the United States.
Some pundits believe Michelle Obama’s speaking tour will be a springboard for a run for higher office in the not too distant future.
Many so-called “journalists” still privately hope she would enter the 2020 Presidential Election.
Obama repeatedly shot down these rumors.
And this book tour is a prime reason why.
Michelle Obama would be forced to explain how she obtained such fabulous wealth when the only service she offers is her name.
Book publishers and streaming services are paying the Obamas tens of millions of dollars to put their name on the books and movies they produce.
They aren’t lining the Obama’s bank account because they are talented filmmakers or top-notch authors.
