Barack Obama: From President to Netflix Producer

Streaming giant is in talks with politician to distribute 'exclusive content' — so this man may become the celeb he was always accused of being

Former President Barack Obama was always more of a celebrity than a commander-in-chief.

So the news that he will likely be producing television content for Netflix in the future is rather fitting.

The New York Times reported recently that Obama and his wife, Michelle, were in “advanced negotiations” to produce “exclusive content” for Netflix — which has been aggressively expanding its original content.

There is no news yet on the type of content the Obamas would oversee, but it comes with little surprise that Obama is turning his attention to entertainment.

He spent his days as president making appearances on shows like “The View,” talking up his music choices, and hosting star-studded and empty events at the White House.

It’s rather ironic that President Donald Trump was an actual celebrity before making a run for the White House — and he acts far less of a celebrity-in-chief than Obama did.
