Former President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle are undeniably part of the Hollywood machine now that they don’t reside in the White House any longer.
The Obamas always loved hosting celebrities and athletes to the White House during his two-term tenure that included LeBron James, Steph Curry, Dave Chappelle, Tom Hanks, Robert De Niro, etc. The list goes on and on like a CVS receipt.
And that’s why it wasn’t all that shocking to learn that Barack Obama’s CIA secretly met with the creators of a very popular television show for this insane reason.
Former President Barack Obama loves the spotlight. In fact, Obama may be the only person in the world that Hollywood idolizes more than themselves, which is a feat seemingly virtually impossible.
But while Barack and Michelle mingle with Hollywood celebrities – like the time when they took a joyride on a super yacht with Oprah Winfrey, Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson and Bruce Springsteen to French Polynesia only a few months after he left office – they also set up their own production company.
Higher Grounds Productions struck a massive overall deal with the streaming giant Netflix two years ago to produce a range of documentaries, series and movies.
One of the documentaries that Higher Grounds produced is “American Factory,” which just so happens to not only be currently nominated for Best Documentary at the upcoming Academy Awards, but it’s also the favorite.
If you thought the Oscars couldn’t get any more obnoxious then wait until you see the Obamas sitting there right next to their Hollywood peers.
The Obamas have likely been planning this Hollywood takeover for years and now we have the evidence because according to the creators of Showtime’s “Homeland,” they and the stars were granted unprecedented access to the CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia.
In a roundtable discussion for The Hollywood Reporter, “Homeland” showrunner Alex Gansa, producer Howard Gordon and agent Rick Rosen, and other executives of Showtime revealed details about meeting with CIA operatives and even had a secret phone call with the infamous Edward Snowden.
Gary Levine, then-Executive Vice President of Original Programming for Showtime, said, “A meeting was arranged between the cast, the network and the CIA at Langley. They confiscated our cellphones, and our whole team is just sitting there across from maybe 50 CIA agents.”
David Nevins, then-President of Entertainment at Showtime, added, “John Brennan, who was running the CIA at the time, came out in the middle and says, “I don’t know what your show is, but I know it matters to my people.”
And we’re supposed to believe that there isn’t a deep state against President Trump? Are are we supposed to believe that then-President Obama didn’t sanction this? He probably encouraged it.
What qualifies these artists to have this kind of access to the Central Intelligence Agency? Can anybody go up to the front door and demand the same access? The answer to that question is, of course, a resounding no. Why shouldn’t every American be granted the same privilege as these Hollywood elitists?
And why aren’t we hearing about this until now?
Actually, we all know the answer to that. The simple reason is because Obama and Brennan are no longer in their positions and they don’t have to give an explanation.
Consider what would happen if President Trump did the exact same thing by giving them exclusive access to 50 CIA operatives. What kind of liberal outrage do you think that would spark if Trump did the exact same thing?
