Michelle Obama’s Self-Praising Netflix Documentary TANKS

In hindsight, it’s now abundantly clear that politics was but a means to end of the Obamas. What they truly wanted were wealth and fame. While occupying the White House for eight years, they hobnobbed with Hollywood elites in an effort to elevate themselves from the First Family to Tinsel Town celebrities.

In 2018, Netflix signed the Obamas’ Higher Ground Productions company to a mega-deal to take the wide-reaching narratives of the streaming giant and give them a hard, liberal slant. But the largest problem the politicians-turned-storytellers struggled with is they have little more to offer than tired old platitudes.

Michelle Obama took $65 million from Penguin Random House to publish her memoirs only to flip her autobiographical “Becoming” into a bland documentary by the same name. Now out on Netflix, Becoming is nothing more than a self-congratulatory portrait in hero worship. Even Obama cult followers appear to be unable to call the film “good,” as liberal media outlets praise the former First Lady while sidestepping criticism of a poorly conceived narrative.

“Even in her more unguarded moments — spending time with family, backstage at an arena full of people who’ve come to hear her speak — she’s still visibly aware that there’s a camera nearby, recording everything she says and does,” left-leaning Vox writes in a review. Naturally, the liberally biased media outlet quickly catches itself from going off-script into facts by recovering with, “But that doesn’t detract from her charisma or the authority she commands.”

Not every critic has the strength of will to subvert the truth about Becoming. In reality, it’s Michelle taking a page out of her husband’s playbook and reminding idolaters that she is rich, famous, and above the rest of you plebeians.

Despite two terms of defending Obama policy, even the New York Times couldn’t give the documentary a thumbs up or avoid noticing the self-aggrandizing nature of the fan film.

“It hits all the notes of a megastar choosing to share her life with the public,” critic Lovia Gyarkye wrote, adding that the movie “is not the candid Michelle Obama film that people might have been waiting for.”

Pop culture film reviews, such as Vulture’s, have been less delicate about choosing their words, calling Becoming a “self-celebratory affair.”

“Becoming is an act of legacy burnishing, no doubt, but it doesn’t feel like it’s laying the groundwork for a future campaign from its subject, no matter how adored it makes her look,” Vulture film critic Alison Willmore reportedly wrote.

Straight-up film review outlets such as Indie Wire handed Michelle a C+. Noting that the documentary following Michelle’s book tour is highly “sanitized.” Even when others in her orbit are brought into focus, they are there only to push the former First Lady’s greatness.

“And yet even those interviews remain firmly centered on their own (glowing, understandably) interpretations of their employer and friend,” Indie Wire notes. “The disjointed nature of the film does have one upside in that it hints at what might become of Obama’s life now.”

Unless you are a hard-charging liberal, does anyone really care about the future of the Obamas’ celebrity status? Hardly. But they are likely to remind Netflix viewers of their own wonder, again, and again. The only good news is that subscribers have hundreds of other options on any given night.

    1. Well it would appear that ‘ somebody ‘ is considering a challenge to Joe Biden’s all-but-assured nomination?
      1) Biden clinches the nomination and selects a woman VP candidate as he promised.
      2) Biden has announced before his run that he’d be a one-term president.
      3) In order to clinch the election, Biden’s Veep should be a ‘ woman of color ‘,
      likely Stacey Abrams ? . . .
      4) There are some indications that Joe’s nomination will likely be challenged at the
      Dem Convention.
      5) What a glorious cat fight if Michelle were to lock fangs and claws with Hillary!?
      6) If Joe survives the challenge to his rightful nomination and wins the presidency,
      his VP is virtually assured the presidency when he retires after one term.
      7) Will the Democrat Party survive ?

    2. That’s like saying that another “Michelle”, Tom Brady’s wife, would make a great quarter-back because she was married to Tom. Michell Obama would make a great nothing.
      What is happening? A political contest or a popularity contest?

  1. Pack your bags and just go away. Most Americans have turned off tripe like you and Hollywood are putting out.

  2. Michelle has a big ego problem. She’s not really very liked by most people. Maybe she and her anti American family should just pack their bags and leave US. They certainly don’t be missed! N

  3. like her husband she is nothing but flash and glitter with not one ounce of substance.. and the same applies to work ethics for doing anything “for the people” phonies , elitists at the high level just go away to you $30 M modest home on the cape and wait for the tide to rise….and continue to tell us how to live….

    1. The Obama fiasco chased me and all my friends away from Netflix. The kept getting worse and worse and they finally hit bottom.

  4. Both of them land on my admiration chart at a whopping -5. NEGATIVE FIVE Netflix is also not allowed to air on my televisions. It’s like Germans excited to tune in to the Joseph Goebbels show!

  5. Are we surprised when African americans and liberals gave them a pass at every turn and praised them like they were the Messiah! They finally believe it.

    1. anonymous as Goebbels Hitler’s Minister of Propaganda said the more you tell a lie the truer it becomes. He also said the darker your skin the more inferior you are.

    1. How do you know anything about Ms. Obama. Are you her Gynecologist? Quit perpetuating stupidity. She ain’t going to pull down her pants to prove anything to you or anyone else. I will admit I don’t like her or her husband . But your being stupid.

      1. Apparently you have never watched the Ellen Show. She/he danced and it was there front and center. I don’t like Ellen and normally don’t watch her show but I just happened to that day.

    2. Please keep it real with religious content to a minimum. More sheep would hear you better then. Thank you very much.

  7. The obama’s like to let us know they are rich, but how did they get that way by stealing monies from the american people and selling secrets to Iran which put 160 million dollars in their pockets. They like to think they are a both the law and that people should be bending down and kissing their feet. (yucky). Michelle looks down on the poor black people who adore her. Little do they know how she really feels about them. She is not a she, something hangs between her legs that tells me she is a heshe. maybe that is why her husband is gay. because the only way he could have sex was going in her back door

    1. Tony, the dirty dems committed genocide against Native Americans — and I’m sure you know this. Moreover, it hasn’t stopped. Only a few tribes are above the poverty line and this latest nonsense about removing “Mia” from the “Land-O-Lakes” packaging demonstrates how the Left wants to eliminate indigenous people from the conscienceness of the American people.

  8. Amazing!!!! obama family, All of Them! The Apple doesn’t Fall from the Tree, just go Away! Real America don’t WANT you or LOVE YOU! You thought you had The Lime Light for 8 Years and but you and family Received Pay Out from Iran or Kick Back Money. Back Stabbed Americans, Go Back to Africa ( One Way Ticket ). As a Fifth Generation American Indian from Nevada and Direct Desendent of Chief Whiteknife of Northeastern Nevada, Don’t Need You.

  9. Will they ever go away???? We’re sick to death of them. And. . . the previous question about where they got all that money would be an interesting question to be answered. EMS

  10. I am a registered Democrat. I have served in the USA Government at a pretty high level. Obama was actually on of the worst Presidents this great nation has ever had. And Michelle was ONE of the worst parts of Obama’s Presidency. To think that she would ever serve in office is revolting. She had one of the biggest wait staffs as a First lady in the Nation’s history. She also is mostly self serving!

    1. Slick Willy and the Obozo Clown are the reasons I’m no longer a Democrat. Today the leftists hypocrisy is so blatantly obvious and they keep reaffirming me that I made the correct decision to walk away from their clan. In fact they left me. I can no longer support a party that relies on fraudulent votes to win elections.

  11. THATS NOT BAD NEWS. BAD NEWS FOR SHIT BAG MOOCHIE WOULD BE CELEBRATORY FOR US. SAY FOR EXAMPLE TERMINAL DISEASE! OH HAPPY DAY. ALL DEMOCRATS ARE AMERICAS ENEMIES. ALL MUST BE PUNISHED.

  12. This is sad for the Black community. The Obama’s were planted by World Order, George Soros controlled. Obama is still seen meeting with this criminal! Soros was kicked out of his home country and the Obama’s accepted him with open arms! Where ever Soros goes he brings in extreme socialism to try to destroy the country. I believe Obama has become rich by Soros and his Re Enslaving the Black community! America became more racist, sexist, hate filled and big government controlled. However, Soros did not realize that Trump was sent by God to stop the evil destruction of our Constitution. Wherever socialism begins, people duped into thinking the government will give them everything free! Free is not free! Socialism takes away your rights and big government takes way a persons self respect and makes all of us slaves! The Democrat Socialist Party is getting rich from foreign powers as Russia, China, Ukraine, Iran and many communist & Moslem areas and all getting rich to the destruction of America! The 2020 election is the most important election in history! We must re-elect Trump, take back the House and elect all Republicans. This will bring back civility, God and our patriotism.

  13. B O and M O, Please get the hell out of the USA. The only people that you helped was yourselves! M O, “All this for a damned flag” That’s the legacy you left behind. Hatred for our flag and our country. What a disgrace you two turned out to be. You are as fake as the fake news and corrupt to the max!

  14. The most corrupt people ever. They sold us out, they let all them Muslims in our country now they want to take over and kill us if we don’t bow down to their false god.

  15. I agree with the previous comments made concerning Michelle and Barack Obama. I really hope the American people are not fooled into thinking that he and she want best for them as they don’t. All they care about is hobnobbing with the Hollywood people and getting rich so they can have all the various places they purchased. Now they want to come back and screw over the American people so they can make more money for their coffers and feel like King and Queen again. Please America wake up and realize they would be the worst thing to happen to our country. President Trump has proved time and again, he isn’t in this for the money. He is doing it for his love of his country and people. If people put in place the people that call themselves Democrats, but really are Socialist, God help us all.

  16. When OLD Michelle/Michael worked for a certain high roller in Chicago , ?worked? , she was hired to do a job of “some sort”, but “spent all of her/his time filing his/her nails”, and NOBODY COULD SAY anything to her/him to do her/his job”. This is what you will get , IF MIKE/MICHELLE were to somehow be elected President. OLD Barack would be back in the Oval Office running things back into the ground , probably try to get a hefty raise , and steal more American taxpayers monies. Of course Hillary would be Vice President as heir apparent. More likely , Bill would be calling the shots for her.
    Michelle/Michael is a bi-pedal disaster of the lowest of scumbags , second only to Barack in their disdain for America.
    So the end result , that every Christian church would be banned , every Jewish Temple would be remade into a muslim scum dwelling, and every LGBTQ thingy would be on the look out for their “enemies”.
    ERGO ; Civil War is coming to a town near you.

  17. I am sure Obama (both of the POSs) will say it is because of racism that the show is not well-received.

  18. Well, it is all coming home, being married to the most corrupt President ever, she unfortunately was part of it as well. They have so much $ hidden off shore you would never find it. Even in children’s accounts.
    What the sowed they will reap and she would never other than going high and low, the low is not as low as they both are as our Nation’s leaders. One thing for sure, guess they are glad in America, because if were in Noko or Russia, would be on the missing list.

  19. if you have time to waste listening to Michael Obama kissing Michael Obama’s ass – this show is for you.

  20. I don’t watch Netflix products like this one but I am sure that there are a lot missing documentary of Omama era in WH: bending back and kissing hands of our enemies, allowing Russia to buy 20% stocks in American nuclear industry (with Hill and Bill lobbying help), selling one of the country biggest meat processing company to Chinese, flying cash to Iran, signing agreement with Iran that allow them another 10 years of nuclear development, backstab American navy and make our sailors hostages in Iranian hands, dismantle NASA programs and made America dependent on Russian rocket engines……. it’s go on and on…… wasted 8 years in America’s modern history.

  21. There is something about Michelle that rubs me the wrong way. She obviously believes she is wonderful and truly loves herself. In fact she is not wonderful, thrives on self gratification and has a skewed view of reality. I wish she and Barry would just fade away into the sunset like any self respecting ‘has been’ would do. She and Barry are like chewing gum on your shoe…no matter what you do the gum just won’t go away!

  22. Michelle,
    I have a news flash for you! Your husband was the worst President in American History, he’s a habitual liar, his administration was corrupt and besides still being a Muslim, he sold our country out.
    And all of you Black brothers and sisters, he didn’t do squat for you except keep most of you on the plantation.

  23. I heard something about this documentary being made over a year ago. I decided then and there that I never cared for the Obamas or their policies. I have no use for Globalists; treasonous Socialists. Therefore would never watch it. The Obamas; Clintons; Trudeau’s and Merkals of the world make me sick with their lies and holier than thou attitude.

    They support censorship; gun confiscation and totalitarianism and are now employing Covid and it’s spread to subjugate the people even further.

    Bad enough that I force myself to watch CNN and CBC everyday. Sick and tired of their Socialist mealy mouthed self aggrandizement, worthy of Kim Jung UN! The only reason I watch CNN & CBC is so I will get to know my enemy a bit better and the lies and propaganda they spread.

    You know the old saying: Keep your friends close and your enemies closer. I believe in that saying! We need to be prepared to fight these evil doers and to do so need to turn to our Lord Jesus, not to flim flam men who deny God’s existence and then in the same breath proclaim themselves to be God!

  24. This moron Biden isn’t choosing anyone for VP. The DNC will tell him who his running mate will be. Period. C’mon man!

  25. This broad is all into herself as he is. Both need to keep their noses out of what does NOT concern them. After all she it made a comment that we are racist. Oh well you are the biggest one. Pack your bags and go back to Kenya.

  26. 8+ years of listening to Obama family obfuscations was 8+ was too much. Why the hell would anyone voluntarily subject themselves to more bull sh*t from this race baiting b*tch?

  27. Let us not forget all the multi-million dollar Hawaiian vacations that the Obamas had at the expense of the American taxpayers.

  28. Your 15 minutes of fame is over. There is a new Sheriff in town and it is not Joe Biden. We the people love our President Donald Trump. 2020 elect Trump.

  29. We the people of the great United States of America wake up every morning so GRATEFUL you and your husband are OUT of OUR WHITE HOUSE. So great to have an honest president and one that LOVES THE GREAT UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
