Most former presidents in this country have enough class to retreat from the spotlight and allow their successors to rule the nation unchallenged. Unfortunately, Barack Hussein Obama has no class and is ignoring this tradition to instead try and steal as much attention from President Donald Trump as he possibly can.
There’s nothing more important to Obama than remaining “hip” and popular with the Hollywood crowd. That’s why it was particularly sickening this week when it was announced that Obama would the first guest of legendary late night host David Letterman when his new Netflix show premieres on January 12.
Daily Mail reported that the six episode series is called, “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman,” and it will also feature interviews with Obama-loving celebrities like Jay-Z and Tina Fey. Letterman’s interview with Obama will be the first the former president has done since leaving office.
Letterman has expressed excitement about his new show, which he clearly wants to be extremely liberal.
“I got tired of people saying ‘What do you want to do?,” Letterman said of the Netflix series in August. “I did what I wanted to do for 30-plus years. Netflix and the Radical brothers put this show idea together. The thing I like about it is that it fits exactly what I want to do and it’s with people I’m fond of working with. It’s not 10 hours a day, five days a week.”
Obama will undoubtedly use this interview to further his quest to bring down Donald Trump and the Republican Party. This comes after it was announced The Hill reported that it’s just been announced that at least a dozen former Obama administration officials are challenging Republican incumbents for House seats in the 2018 midterm elections. Most of the officials want to unseat GOP lawmakers deemed vulnerable by House Democrats as part of a wider effort to take back a majority in the chamber.
The former Obama officials that plan to run include former White House technology adviser Brian Forde, who is challenging Rep. Mimi Walters (R-Calif.) in her Orange County congressional district, as well as Colin Allred and Ed Meier, a former Housing and Urban Development official and State Department official respectively, who are both challenging Rep. Pete Sessions(R-Texas).
Others include former acting Assistant Secretary of Defense Elissa Slotkin, who is running against Rep. Mike Bishop (R-Mich.) and Sarah Jacobs, a former State Department official, who is challenging Darrell Issa (R-Calif.).
