Barack Obama’s jaw dropping 2020 announcement is the last thing Trump wanted to hear
Democrats are sitting around on pins and needles waiting for Barack Obama to make his 2020 intentions clear.
That day finally arrived.
And Barack Obama’s jaw dropping 2020 announcement is the last thing Donald Trump ever wanted to hear.
At the “Brilliant Minds” conference Barack Obama discussed his new deals with Netflix and Spotify to produce documentaries, shows and podcasts for both streaming services.
The first content is due out in 2020 – just in time for the election – and Barack Obama made it clear he will use these platforms to brainwash Americans into opposing Donald Trump.
NBC’s Dylan Byers reports:
Which makes what Obama said last night notable:
• “The longer I practice politics and then study social movements and social change, the more I understand that change comes around because of great stories.”
• “We’re in the midst of competing stories. … [Some tell us] that we are pluralistic and democratic and inclusive…. and then there are stories that tell us that we’re different and should be afraid of each other.”
• “That tug determines what happens with history.”
Equally notable, unfortunately, was the dispassionate way that he said it. The former president was thoughtful and long-winded as always last night but didn’t seem terribly inspired by the words coming out of his mouth. If the Obama content play is to be a campaign for pluralism, democracy and inclusivity, it is desperately lacking the “fierce urgency of now” that characterized his two presidential runs.
Netflix and Spotify are used by tens of millions of Americans.
That gives Obama a massive platform to spread “resistance” content under the guise of nonpartisan pop culture content.
And it gives the left another weapon in their battle to oust President Donald Trump.
