Democrats are masters of covering up their own scandals.
They’re quick to point the finger, and slow to look in the mirror.
And Donald Trump just pointed out one shady Barack Obama deal that liberals are predictably ignoring.
Briefly after leaving office, Barack and Michelle Obama signed a lucrative book deal with Penguin worth $65 million.
They also signed a big development deal with Netflix.
And Donald Trump is calling foul on that deal.
Trump needling Obama on the subject of Netflix came in response to liberals saying Trump should be investigated for violating the emoluments clause and enriching himself.
However, Trump’s financial dealings have been above board, and he’s very clearly losing money by being President of the United States.
Meanwhile, the Obamas and the Clintons went into the White House with little money, but very quickly amassed millions.
The Clintons used the dubious Clinton Foundation—a non-profit so rife with malfeasance that an audit of Chelsea Clinton found “serious concerns” within the operation—to generate wealth.
The Obamas are also hastily cashing in on their liberal media stardom.
But nobody seems to be asking the question if there was any quid pro quo involved.
Obama meddled with the economy and wielded considerable influence over big business during his eight years in office, and he clearly paid favorites.
Solyndra, a green energy company, received over half a billion dollars in taxpayer-funded subsidies at Obama’s behest, but the entire endeavor was a boondoggle.
Democrats are quick to comb through every aspect of Trump’s life, but they’re slow to look at other Democrats, particularly ones as untouchable as the Obamas.
The Obamas will be producing content for Netflix that they claim is non-partisan, but nobody actually believes that.
They’re going to use their platform to attack Trump and Republicans with unfettered propaganda.
They’re producing an adaptation of a Michael Lewis book called “The Fifth Risk,” which takes aim at a Trump-era Department of Energy policy.
The Obamas also have another anti-Trump film slated to come out next fall just before the 2020 election.
These types of underhanded tactics are how the left thrives.
The so-called mainstream media and Hollywood pretend to be unbiased, but they’re as partisan as you can imagine.
Not only that, they’re willing to lie, cheat, and steal to get their way.
Barack Obama was mired in scandal during his presidency, but his allies in the media allowed him to get away with claiming his administration was “scandal-free.”
However, anyone paying attention knows that’s a lie.
Also, the Obamas are already using strong-arm tactics to get their way in producing.
They tried to get a trademark for a company called Higher Ground Enterprises canceled because it was too similar to their own Higher Ground Productions – even though Higher Ground Enterprises was founded first.
The Obamas brought their Chicago-style shady politics to the White House, and now they’re going to do the same thing in Hollywood.
