Despite all of the stupid–and highly illegal–things President Obama has done and been involved with, our brain dead culture is still infatuated with him.
Apparently racking up an $18 trillion debt, using the IRS as a weapon to silence someone’s First Amendment rights, and being involved in numerous scandals still isn’t enough to end liberal Hollywood’s sick and disturbing love affair with good ole Barry.
Now it seems there is going to be a new movie about the president and his super obnoxious and annoying wife, Michelle. Can you guess what the plot will focus on? Get ready. This will blow your mind. Seriously.
The White House legend that is Barack and Michelle Obama’s romance is heading to the screen. Southside With You, a drama in the vein of Before Sunrise, chronicles the summer 1989 afternoon when the future President of the United States of America wooed his future First Lady on an epic first date across Chicago’s South Side. Get On Up’s Tika Sumpter will play Michelle Obama (née Robinson), while the search is on to cast the young Barack.
As Presidential lore has it, the date took some convincing. Obama, then an idealistic first-year Harvard Law student, took a summer job as an associate at Chicago law firm Sidley Austin where he fell for lawyer Michelle Robinson, his younger boss. Southside With You spans the day she agreed to go out with him when the two visited the Art Institute, took a long walk, and caught a showing of Spike Lee’s new film, Do The Right Thing. They were married in 1992.
Feel free to take a few minutes to toss your cookies in the nearest barf bag. I won’t judge.
This sounds like the kind of movie that would give me nightmares for a decade. Possibly a lifetime, depending on how far these “filmmakers” go in their depictions of events. I shudder at the thought of seeing even pretend PDAs from these two, even with actors.
I bet this movie will end up with an Oscar nod just due to it’s association with the president, regardless of it’s actual quality or storytelling.
Think I’ll pass on this one.
