The Obamas got a big payday and you won’t believe what they’re using it for

Draining the swamp started with kicking Barack Obama out of the White House.

But that wasn’t the end of Obama’s political machine.

Obama is raking in a jaw-dropping amount of cash now that he is out of office and you won’t believe what he plans to do with it.

During the 2018 election, both Barack and Michelle Obama made campaign stops to bolster Democrat candidates into office.

But that’s not all they have been up to.

Since leaving office, the Obama’s have done everything in their power to make millions of dollars out of their time occupying the White House.

And they could be using it to bolster Michelle Obama’s position as a 2020 contender.

The New York Post reports:

The Obamas are “Becoming” — billionaires.

The launch of Michelle Obama’s cross-country book tour for her new memoir, “Becoming,” last week is just the latest marker on the road to fabulous wealth for the former first couple, who are on their way to becoming a billion-dollar brand.

In addition to a $65 million book advance and an estimated $50 million deal with Netflix, both of which she shares with husband Barack Obama, the former first lady is poised to rake in millions from appearances on her 10-city US tour and sales of merchandise connected to her autobiography.

And like her husband, Michelle Obama is currently in demand as a speaker for corporations and nonprofits, commanding $225,000 per appearance, The Post has learned.

Forbes estimated the couple made $20.5 million in salaries and book royalties between 2005 — when Barack Obama became a US senator and they first arrived in Washington — and 2016. They are now worth more than $135 million.

Obama is also cashing checks from Wall Street bankers and well-connected globalists for his speaking engagements.

Some conservatives claim that he is merely cashing checks for favors he gave to Wall Street and globalists while he was in office.

When the Clintons left the White House they claimed they were broke.

But they have since gone on to rake in millions from everybody from Wall Street to foreign governments like Saudi Arabia.

That helped prepare Hillary for two (failed) presidential runs.

The Obamas could be using the same model to set up Michelle for 2020.

    I was hoping they’d use the money for a transfusion of Antifreeze for both them dune coons and they could share with the clit on’s and maxie pad swatters and pisslousy, soros etc etc.

  4. Philip Simon says:

    The Clintons wanted to be like the Kennedys, The Obamas want to be like the Clintons, who will follow and imitate next?

  5. Ernst says:

    Awkward, ugly, hateful, racist, easily-triggered Michelle Obama running for President would be the greatest gift possible for President Trump!

  6. n. wilson oliver says:

    I posted the numbers the bribe masquerading as an advance would have to sell for in a normal “book deal”–At $20 per book, the publisher would have to sell 3.5 million–HOWEVER Barnes and Noble is RETAILING the book at $19.50 hardcover–We’re talking now ten million or so sales just to break even–what a joke

  7. n. wilson oliver says:

    There is a prohibition against bribery while in office. However a “sixty-five million dollar advance” is considered big bucks–

    Reflect a minute–consider the amount of the bribe, er, advance–In theory this is a business deal–How many books would the publisher have to sell to simply “break even?” Say that not only does the advance factor into the price of the book, but the costs of staffing offices, editing, preparing for printing, marketing, publicity, and of course the actual share with the retail book houses–If $20 are allocated per volume to amortize the advance, the book would have to sell three and a half MILLION copies to break even! Let’s say that the advance would be half the wholesale cost of the printed book, you’re talking wholesale of $40! Retail would have to be $80!

    This amount was also paid to the Oword as well, another $65000000 advance if memory serves.

    This was NOT a business deal, this was a payoff pure and simple, by, of course the globalists who want to destroy America! To the depths of hell with these venal corrupt fools!

    • marleen davis says:

      Kara said it. The demorats and all theirDIRTY FILTHY MONEY AND PRANKS AND ILLEGAL VOTING, ETC, ETC. They are so full of crap and we haven’t been able to do anything much about it. Do we have to monitor everything? do we have to have police at the polls? At every meeting and function? You can’t. How do we stop this insanity. All these slimball demorats care about it money and ruining our Country. They threaten and get people to threaten and do their dirty deeds. These creeps are worse then anything in the past. Worse then Hitler, Mussolini, etc. Is it Soros, Steyer, The Mafia, or a combination of all this? Who will rule and how many will die if this cannot be stopped? There are so many people that are so very fooled by the false rhetoric it doesn’t seem solvable.

    • Frances Carlson says:

      Way too much money for toilet paper.

  8. Kara Wright says:

    All the money the Clinton’s and the Obama’s are raking in is dirty money and as we all know that they will go down at some point and will have nothing to cash in on. I look forward to the day when the devil calls them all home to his house and they will burn in you know where.

  9. Raymond Martucci says:

    The Obama’s are lucky that the laws are soft and they are able to pay them off to look the other way. They should be going to jail for fraud and selling out this country. Their nice cushy pay they are getting should be seized.

  10. Mo says:

    The former first couple should have their assets seized and they both should be EXECUTED FOR YTRASON. Neither one of them like our Country and did everything they could to destroy it. They single hanedly set back race relations in the Country 50 with their racist agenda.

  11. Kenneth Boyd says:

    These sorry ni–ers need to go to the Middle East and spout off their ideas . See hoe well that goes over !

  12. Margaret Heller says:

    To Zee: you should be glad that Trump invigorated our country’s economy; created more jobs; stopped Rocket Man sending missiles over Japan and almost to Guam; broke the criminal Iran Nuclear deal and didn’t have to pay Iran to get out of it; repatriated hostages w/o paying ransome. Should I go on? Some people, like you,cannot see the forest because of the trees, dummy!

  13. FIREBALL XR5 says:

    I thinking we’ve seen our last black president. I wouldn’t trust another not to be buddies with islam.

  14. Obama was a worthless POS. He did nothing but tear this country down. Trump would have to be president for the next ten years to straighten out this country after what Odummer did to it.

  15. Jean says:

    The dem terrorists dont want her, they want fkbama. He would be running the show and trying to finish destroying our country.

  16. John says:

    Get lost you America hating low life scum!
    We don’t need another jig-a-boo squating
    in our White House! We have had enough
    of your BS!

    • M says:

      and America has had enough of ignorant racism like yours!

      • bob jones says:

        damn if they erased the word racism from the dictionary the liberals wouldn’t know what to say. i swear i believe everyone is sick of that word,liberals should be because they are the most racist as they keep people in slavery for a vote.

  17. Audie Jordan says:

    If Michelle runs, she will win. W/ the Democrats in control of The House for two years, nothing will get done & Trump will be blamed.

    The Democrats won’t waste the two years lining up voters by whatever means it takes & they will take every major population center by hook or crook. There will not be any change in voter I.D., double, triple, busing of students, & all the myriad of absentee, amended, provisional ballots because Democrats control all major population centers. Since Black Panthers got away w/ Philadelphia & Atlanta, they will be more on the scene.

    • marshmil1789 says:

      Well said Audie. Thanks…especially regarding Philadelphia. The Obamas lack class and civility. They appeal to anti-America ghetto, “trailer park” and illegal types. Barack and Michelle are the highest paid welfare recipients on the planet. They contributed nothing for the good of the USA prior to 2008 nor after.

  18. Rick says:

    Her husband did nothing in 8 years why would you think she will do something ??

    • MARY says:

      I AGREE. OBAMA WAS DESTROYING OUR COUNTRY THATS ALL THEY DID IS HAVING A GOOD TIME IN THE WHITE HOUSE AND GOING ON VACATIONS. THE ONLY THING MICHELLE DID WAS MAKE A GARDEN FOR FAT KIDS IN SCHOOL. SHE CHANGED THE SCHOOL MENUE AND IT TURN OUT TO BE A BIG MISTAKE. MELANIE PUTS RINGS AROUND THIS UGLY CREATURE. TRUMP WOULD PUT HER UNDER THE BUS IF SHE RAN. ONLY THE DEMOCRAPTS AND LIBERALS LIKE THEM. WHY DONT THEY SYTOP COMING ON THE NEWS AND SLAMMING OUR PRESIDENT. NEVER IN ALL MY YEARS HEARD OF A PAST PRESIDENT SLAMMING A RECENT PRESIDENT. THOSE OBAMAS ARE RACISTS. AND. SO GO AWAY OBAMAS YOU AND HILLERY WE HAD ENOUGH OF BOTH OFYOU. TRUMP IN 2020.

  19. Zee says:

    Ol’ PP trying to stir people up again – – this is what they spend time on rather than being concerned that our president promised severe consequences for the brutal murder of Khahsoggi and then he does nothing, lying about the intelligence report that concluded Saudi Prince did it? What about president who picks fights with the SCOTUS Chief Justice? What about a RECORD number of Democrats voted 8.7 MIllion more than Rep. in the midterms?
    Obama wasn’t kicked out, he left after his limit one of the more popular presidents – -and could beat Trump by a landslide if he could run against him. Trump could not even beat Hillary again.

    • Inkpad says:

      A non citizen reporter killed in another country for disrespecting their royalty isn’t our problem policing and running the world isn’t our problem nor is financially enabling terrorist countries. Your confusing today with democrat agenda to control everything and everyone this will not be a communist country!!!

    • marshmil1789 says:

      Thanks Zee. Since you hate the USA let me suggest you renounced your US Citizenship, pack up and move to a place where Marxism prevails. Please leave NOW.

    • MARY says:

      OH I DONT KNOW ABOUT THAT. HILLERY AND COMEY AND OBAMA S ADMINASTRATION SHOULD ALL BE IN JAIL. THERE PART OF THE SWAMP. YOU HAVE IT WRONG. TRUMP WOULD PUT MICHELLE UNDER THE BUS.WE HADENOUHGH OF THEM.TRUMP 2020

    • Raymond Martucci says:

      Think you need to check those votes they were illegal votes. The democracts couldn’t win a fair election if their life depends on it. If you like the democracts so much go to one there are plenty countries out their that have it. Venezuela would be right up your alley. If the polls weren’t rigged and had the illegals voting the democracts would have lost they stole this midterm

    • bob jones says:

      if trump put sanctions on saudi arabia and they cut oil production and gas prices rose to 8 dollars a gallon you would holler it is trumps fault. why in hell you don’t get over the election trump won and get on with your life. obama left after stealing all the money he could and roberts was stupid for entering the fray with trump it didn’t concern him and trump is right the 9th. circuit court in california is truly an obama court as well as all the state of california.

      • Patti DeVries says:

        Bob, I think Trump should wall off California and let all the illegals in there. Let them take care of the situation they are causing. when they are over whelmed with trying to house and feed these people, lets see how liberal they stay.

        • Randy Miller says:

          Is it Arizona’s fault illegals cross there How about New Mexico and Texas ? Is it their fault? CA has been stolen by YEARS of voter fraud. Just like Florida New York and multiple other states. If you think for one second that we want the migrant invasion force here then you are an ignorant human being. Quit blaming everything on CA..

  20. Donald M Coder says:

    I head that they were spending all of it on bananas.

  21. breaker 19 says:

    What does she know about running the country? Nothing. Anybody that votes for her would only be doing so because she would be running against Trump, not because she would make a good president.

    • Zee says:

      what did Trump know about running the country!?! Of course it is easy to tell Trump does not know what he is doing by his stupid statements. There WILL BE a huge vote against Trump if he is not removed before 2020.

  22. Jon M. Willey says:

    When will the Congress stop paying Barrack his presidential pension. He does not need it and if he was anywhere near the great American humanitarian he claims to be he ask that it be suspended. Hypocrite!

  23. Linda says:

    Michelle needs to take Her worthless partner,
    Hillary, and Bill and go for walk in woods and never come back, get lost please
    They are all hasbens and not needed
    All crooks!

    • Roger says:

      They look like saints compared to THE most corrupt president in history – – > Don the con man Trump! Obstruction of justice, violator of campaign laws, money launderer for the Russian mob and others, conspiracy/collusion with a foreign adversary to defraud the 2016 election., tax evasion – – one gets tired from just listing some of the crimes.

  24. Moochelle is that your feet I smell? Do you still hate America? And when you going to spit out that snuff?

  25. Dan Miller says:

    They are becoming wealthy on the backs of poor fools who actually believe all the B.S coming out of their mouths. Just like the Clintons who made more money after left the White House They will be just like the Clintons in every way possible. With the help of the MSM ,and the others of far leftist liberial democrats will finally finish off this country as we all know it and everything we hold dear.

  26. JAMES HEAD says:

    MAKE SURE THEY PAY EVERY CENT OF THEIR TAXES ON THIS FINANCIAL HEAP!!!

  27. Herb Paul says:

    Require voter Id at EVERY CEMETERY

  28. Yes he is a Liberal Dumb ass Clown and he is the chump punk.

  29. Richard says:

    The Obummers & Kclintons are LOSERS!!!
    America…please wake up ! TRUMP 2020 !!!

    • Zee says:

      The way Trump is acting like Nixon and the charges that are yet to come . . . . better enjoy the remaining weeks of Trump presidency, because it is likely no Republican will be elected in that post in a long, long time. The GOP is going to have to rebuild itself from the ground up . . . it has attacked so many minorities and women’s rights, and guess who is expanding in the population? Old white males will lose control for a long, long time.

  30. James P Hutchins says:

    Hey chris s you must be a liberal scumbag clown.

  31. James P Hutchins says:

    This Country would never put a he she in the White House ever she’s worse than the other obama it’s irrelevant to the American people.

  32. Bill says:

    Yes it’s obvious that there becoming Billionaires. Where else did you think those billions of dollars disappeared to of the 10 trillion that they cant account for.

  33. I predicted she may run & with an endorsement of Oprah she’ll have the vote of every liberal in America and mighty good chance of winning. The Obama’s took a page from the Clinton’s on getting rich from their political position and left office as the richest former President on record getting record book deals from the liberal media…they’ll have little problem getting other endorsements from a drooling Hollywood, et al.

    • Ed says:

      How many books did Trump write? Actually he didn’t write any but had ‘ghost writers” do it for him and he made millions. Trump is now making millions off of Mar a Largo and you thought he was just being nice giving up his salary. You have been conned. Trump just signed new financial deals with China but tells others they can’t do that, ( he was granted 17 new rights or deals just this year). Why do you think Trump always has a smurk on his face? He is pulling the wool over your face.

  34. Chris S says:

    Won’t have to worry about Michelle beating Trump, he’ll resign or be impeached before 2020 ! Dump the Chump Trump!

  35. truckman says:

    that pig does not stand a chance aganst Trump as long as he keeps doing what the people want besides every body that obama lost

  36. Rodney says:

    I believe, just like the Clinton’s, the people are over the Odummers.

  37. Randall M says:

    Every candidate Obummer endorsed LOST. But, I say let michael run. It will be a pleasure exposing all of the dirty laundry surrounding them.

  38. STEVE FLOWERS says:

    IS IT REALLY COLD? YES! IT WILL BE A COLD DAY IN HELL IF AMERICA PLACES ANOTHER OBAMA INTO OFFICE! ‘COLD’ IT WILL BE!
