Opinion| Why is it that much like the Clintons, the Obamas won’t seem to go away? Their time in the White House has been over for years, but they won’t just fade into the darkness.
First they took over Netflix. Now they’re onto Spotify.
The Gateway Pundit reports:
The Obamas signed a multi-year deal with Spotify to continue to push their Marxist propaganda onto the masses.
Barack and Michelle Obama’s production company, ‘Higher Ground’ will produce exclusive podcasts for Spotify to ‘lift up new diverse voices in the entertainment industry,’ the streaming company announced Thursday.
In other words, this is just another way for the Obamas to push radical left-wing propaganda into people’s homes.
“We’ve always believed in the value of entertaining, thought-provoking conversation,” former President Barack Obama said. He continued, “It helps us build connections with each other and open ourselves up to new ideas. We’re excited about Higher Ground Audio because podcasts offer an extraordinary opportunity to foster productive dialogue, make people smile and make people think, and, hopefully, bring us all a little closer together.”
“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to amplify voices that are too often ignored or silenced altogether, and through Spotify, we can share those stories with the world,” former First Lady Michelle Obama said. “Our hope is that through compelling, inspirational storytelling, Higher Ground Audio will not only produce engaging podcasts, but help people connect emotionally and open up their minds—and their hearts.”
It’s been more than two years since the Obamas left the White House, but since then, they have managed to accumulate money like Scrooge McDuck by selling books and taking part in speaking events.
“Barack Obama learned well from the Clintons and recently bagged $600,000 for a single speech in Colombia,” according to the Gateway Pundit.
Via the LA Times:
Barack and Michelle Obama have inked a deal to make podcasts for streaming music giant Spotify, in the latest expansion of the former president and first lady’s nascent media business.
The Obamas’ production company Higher Ground said Thursday that it has forged a partnership to create podcasts exclusively for Stockholm-based Spotify’s global platform. Publicly traded Spotify is the world’s largest streaming music company, with 100 million paying subscribers and more than 217 million monthly active users.
Financial terms of the Obamas’ deal were not disclosed.
The companies did not announce any titles for new podcasts or say how much content Higher Ground would produce for Spotify. Under the partnership, Barack and Michelle Obama will develop, produce and lend their voices to podcasts, the companies said.
