The opening paragraphs from this New York Post story tell us all we need to know.
Barack and Michelle Obama are raking in the cash, thanks to the influence of a former campaign supporter.
The couple last week signed a creative production deal with Netflix that one entertainment industry source said could be valued at more than $50 million.
Ted Sarandos, a major campaign contributor for Obama and the streaming giant’s creative content chief who oversees an $8 billion budget, helped to broker the deal, the source told The Post.
Sarandos and his wife, Nicole Avant, bundled nearly $600,000 in contributions to Obama from their friends and associates during the 2012 presidential campaign.
The couple is friends with the Obamas, and Avant served as US ambassador to the Bahamas from 2009 to 2011, during the former president’s first term.
Her father, Clarence, a music exec, bundled a total of nearly $450,000 for Obama’s presidential campaigns.
That’s a lot of zeros and dollar symbols.
The entertainment industry and its cultural swath of Democratic minions is worse than left-wing; they are elitist Establishmentarians with a nebulous sense of humanity disguised as empathy and altruism. Pretty words flow like sludgy rivers of bullshit.
The Obamas plan to work on stories that “promote greater empathy and understanding between peoples and help them share their stories with the entire world.”
