Obama’s Money Grab.

OPINION
Robert Massimi.
Lebron James look alike, Michelle Obama is putting out a self help book. Where was that advise for her husband, the worst president we ever had- worse than Jimmy Carter! These two bit whores who now have millions, a place on Martha’s Vineyard (on the ocean where climate change doesn’t seem to matter too them)and endless speaking engagements.
The Obama’s never seem to grab endless amounts of money and this no body continues to get the spot light and accolades. For a self help book to come out is mind boggling. On top of all of that, the Obama’s signed a Netflix deal. It does not seem to be enough for these people of no particular importance.
Chubs Mc Cain was talking about women on TV vs men on TV. If it wasn’t for her father that fat slob would not be on the air period. Megyn Mc Cain is fat, surrly and not a good journalist- TV host. She should shut up and thank her lucky stars that she has a job like this one on The View.
Michelle Obama’s new book is just another craven cash grab

Not content with more than 10 million books sold, a Netflix deal in the high eight figures, a joint publishing advance with husband Barack worth $65 million, a highly profitable world tour, speaking fees that by now surely average around $500,000 per, and a recently acquired waterfront Martha’s Vineyard mansion purchased for $15 million, Michelle Obama is back with another craven money grab.

“Becoming: A Guided Journal for Discovering Your Voice” is her new publishing venture.

Billed as a sequel of sorts to Obama’s best-selling memoir, this squat, slim volume, priced at $19.99, is Michelle “now provid[ing] you with the encouragement to find value in your own personal journey,” the publisher says.

“Printed on cream writing paper, with a grosgrain ribbon, foil-stamped cover, and removable half-jacket, ‘Becoming’ … includes thought-provoking prompts designed to help you reflect on your personal and family history: your goals, challenges and dreams; what moves you and brings you hope; and what future you imagine for yourself and your community.”

Some of these thought-provoking prompts:

“Do you have any favorite quotes? Capture them here.”

“Describe a memorable dinner. What did you eat? Did you eat at home or somewhere else?”

“Look outside a window in your home. Write down what you see.”

Michelle Obama’s money-making hypocrisy is laughable
“List 10 fun things you like to do.”

“List ten favorite vegetables and how you like to prepare them.”

“Who or what are you grateful for?”

“Create a playlist of ten songs that you could listen to on repeat.”

“List ten things you noticed on your way home today that no one else may have noticed.”

“List your ten favorite movies.”

“List ten outings you’ve been on with your family.”

That’s a lot of Top 10 lists. Seriously: Any fourth-grade class in a halfway decent school is presented with more complicated essay questions.

It’s not hard to see how Obama, who this year passed Angelina Jolie as the world’s most admired woman, has come to engage in such a cynical, soulless commodification of her time in the White House, one that, quite frankly, verges on an epic troll.

Last year, I attended the kickoff event for Obama’s multi-city book tour in Chicago, and came away fairly horrified. Hosted by Oprah and held in the 20,000-seat United Center, only a small number of tickets were priced at $29.50; the average went from $500 all the way to $3,000. As eulogistic videos of Michelle were screened for a full hour — set to no shortage of female empowerment anthems — attendees roamed the paraphernalia-stuffed halls.

Available for sale: a “Becoming” hoodie for $65, baseball cap for $35 and tote for $30; a “Find Your Voice” mug, $20; a “Find Your Flame and Keep It Lit” candle, $35; a keychain, $15 (!); pencils and a bookmark, $10; and, proving that there’s no claim to partisan supremacy that can’t be commodified, a “When They Go Low, We Go High” T-shirt for $35.
