    Politicians behaving badly will be TV gold, says ROGER LEWIS

    The surface nature of a celebrity culture has taken hold and, as if to confirm and set the seal on this development, Barack and Michelle Obama have now entered into a "multi-year agreement" with Netflix to produce films and television shows, documentaries, fly-on-the-wall and scripted programmes, and no doubt animations, gardening shows and quizzes. As much as I hate that kind of ghastly jargon - no doubt the press release (which I gave up on) also mentions "diversity", "inclusion" and "empowerment" - it occurred to me that it's a wonder we haven't seen much more of this already, ie politicians forgetting about politics and going straight to the studio to be performers and presenters in their areas of expertise. For if there is one sector of society worse than trendy vicars at wanting to show off, it is our politicians. Had her advisers thought about it, Mrs Thatcher could have converted her victory in the Falklands War into a lucrative daytime television slot about spot welding and oil drilling.

    President Obama says it feels 'pretty good' not to be president any more — and he threw some shade in Trump's direction

    For the most part, President Obama is staying firmly on the high road when speaking publicly. He avoids mentioning President Trump's name, directly criticising his policy decisions, or responding to whatever Twitter insults Trump may be throwing his way. And Obama's message to the people remains clear and hopeful: be good to each other, find common ground, make decisions based on facts, not myths and stereotypes, and America's future is as bright as ever. But as the Trump administration has been vocally contemptuous of Obama, No. 44 can't resist throwing just a touch of shade now and then. So it was when speaking on stage on Wednesday in Las Vegas to a crowd of about 4,000 tech professionals

    Obama made a joke about 'the modern presidency' and people 'going to jail'

    When President Barack Obama was in office, he tried to be a good boss to the people working for him at the White House, he said onstage Wednesday at a tech conference in Las Vegas hosted by identity security company Okta. Doing so was very important to him and first lady Michelle Obama, he said, giving as examples, "how we treated people, how we ran our household and staffs." "That we had an expectation of kindness and honesty and being useful and working hard," he said. One of the cornerstones of being a good boss was how he treated people who made mistakes. His rule was that he insisted that people deliver bad news quickly. "We are then able to solve it together," he said. "Over time, we were

    Michelle Obama to attend Tom Hunter fundraiser in Edinburgh

    Mrs Obama will follow in the footsteps of husband Barack when she addresses a charity function organised by the Hunter Foundation. About 1,200 people – including First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and Harry Potter author JK Rowling – attended when the former President made his first trip to Scotland in 2017, helping to raise £670,000 for good causes. Profits from the dinner, at the EICC on July 17, will be invested in hundreds of charities across Scotland, the Hunter Foundation pledged. Founder Sir Tom Hunter, said it would be “more than an honour” to welcome Mrs Obama to Scotland.

    Obama, Trump Presidencies Contrasted in Photo Book 'Shade'

    Former Obama White House photographer Pete Souza took to Instagram Wednesday to announce he has a new book coming out called "SHADE: A Tale of Two Presidents." Publisher Little, Brown and Company wrote about the book on their website: "When Souza left the White House in 2017, he didn't know what it meant to 'throw shade' — but soon learned he was doing it, by posting photographs on Instagram from the Obama years along with captions that vividly define the contrast between the Obama and Trump administrations." The picture book is slated for release in October. Souza's first book, "Obama: An Intimate Portrait," was a New York Times bestseller. To contrast the social media posts by President Donald

    Meghan Markle Arms Are the New Michelle Obama Arms (and Here's How to Get Them)

    Remember when Michelle Obama captivated the nation with—in addition to her smarts and poise—her strong, toned arms? (Seriously, that was all the workout inspo we needed for, like, eight years.)  But because we don't see Michelle in the spotlight much right now, we need a new patron saint of strong shoulders. And guys, we found one: Meghan Markle.  You wouldn't have known it from her wedding ceremony dress, but once Meg slipped into her Stella McCartney reception dress, our jaws dropped at her perfectly sculpted upper body. We want that, we thought.  And luckily, we can kinda have it, since Craig McNamee, who trained Markle while she lived in Toronto, spilled the deets on her fitness routine.

    Why Signing the Obamas Is a Big Deal for Netflix, Inc. Stock

    As of today, it remains unclear exactly what type of original content the Obamas will produce for Netflix. What’s important is that Netflix continues to successfully execute on its original content strategy, and build upon early successes to create what increasingly looks like one of, if not the, most valuable content portfolio in the world.
