Obamas Make Book Deal Worth Over $60 Million

Written by  Aleister

The one percent.

Obama once famously said: “I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money.” The year was 2010 and he was addressing what he perceived as greed on Wall Street.

Now that he’s entering the lucrative post-presidency portion of his career, he’s set to become an incredibly wealthy man. Both he and the former First Lady have reached a book deal worth tens of millions.

Politico reports:

Barack and Michelle Obama reach book deal

Publisher Penguin Random House announced Tuesday it will publish books by former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama.

The company has acquired worldwide publishing rights for two books, one from each of the Obamas. Terms of the agreement were not released, but the Financial Times reported on Tuesday that the auction for the rights to the books reached more than $60 million, citing people with knowledge of the sales process.

“With their words and their leadership, they changed the world, and every day, with the books we publish at Penguin Random House, we strive to do the same,” Penguin Random House CEO Markus Dohle said in a statement.

The New York Post offers some perspective on the size of the deal:

Living through their rule was ENOUGH, damned if I am going to read about that horrid 8 years, and how this pair nearly brought our once great nation to it's knees.

Thank GOD we got enough votes to seat President Trump!

They may be getting paid $60 million , but that is not its' worth. It has no discernable worth to anyone except Democrat historians.

I propose the GOP Congress and President Trump immediately impose a 50% tax on all Presidential memoirs. Isn't $30 million enough for him? He's being greedy by taking so much. Finally, a tax I can get behind!

Book deal well I dont think anyone will be buying this piece of trash. Maybe for an old fashioned Mein Kamph 1931 book burning. These people should be under ground right now for the things they have done, they are treasonous traitors.

Rather large price tag for a book that will never sell!! I guess he could hand them out to all the criminals, refugees, and dreamers entering his pathetic library all for free!!

The problem with this is, most of the people interested enough in the Obama's don't read books. Many are too high on drugs to read, many are too busy using their IPODs and many simply can't read English or can't read period.

Can those two knuckle-draggers create that much fiction? They'd have to outdo their other nonsense, no doubt with some leftard ghost writer assistance.

Barry and He-She Michelle should split the profits with the ghost writer of his previous books, Weathermen domestic terrorist Bill Ayers A good title would be..How we almost fundamentally transformed America into a Cuban style dictatorship or I love Pizza with Cheese..little girls and Hotdogs..boys.

That's awful expensive toilet paper and cat box liner.In fact cats are about the only ones intelligent enough to look at the pictures on the pages before they pee on them.Maybe they'll be translated for the unintelligent illegal aliens who would also only use it for butt wipes.

Who'd be stupid enough to buy a book from the failed First Fag/Tranny Family is beyond me. Oh, wait "liberals-in-denial" still exist, don't they? Never mind, my bad.

It's amazing that they will pay sixty million dollars for frauds that will tell a pack of lies and no truth or logical facts to back it up. Hopefully the waste of paper ends up in the discount bargain bends.

Who will write this one for them? And what happens when it sells like Felonious Von Pantsuit's did? Will they have to pay back the advance like she did?

Let's hope they WILL have to pay back the advance. I'd love to see all their fiction relegated to the Books a Million type of discount warehouses, where they'd sell for pennies on the dollar. Perhaps they can send them to Haiti so the latter can burn them to keep warm. That would be the only benefit from that pulp fiction.
