Obama getting a TV show? That’s going to drive Trump nuts.

Well, he’ll just say that he did it before Obama.

Narrator’s voice: He’s already nuts.

I don’t follow.

Called “The Apprentice?”

Thanks Obama: Netflix CEO Reed Hastings’ Net Worth Soars $400 Million In One Week Forbes

Move over Underwoods. Netflix may have a new president and first lady: Barack and Michelle Obama. The former first couple have reportedly reached advanced negotiations with Netflix to produce a series of exclusive shows highlighting inspirational stories and policy matters.

The discussions are yet another piece of good news for Netflix, whose stock is trading at an all-time high. This week alone, its share price has shot up nearly 10%. That surge has made cofounder and CEO Reed Hastings nearly $400 million richer than he was last week. He’s up approximately $800 million in the past month, and is now worth an estimated $3.5 billion, according to Forbes’ real-time rankings of the world’s billionaires.

Sounds really bland. I expect little more from it then gentle, supposedly inspiring nostrums.

But hey, kaching! Barack and Michelle get even more rich. Yay, I guess.

Are you kidding? I’m ready for some bland. Maybe some sane humanity too.
