“Obama's successor to the presidency, Donald Trump, did not win an Emmy for his reality competition show "The Apprentice," although he was nominated twice.”

How many truth social tweets has he blasted out about it already?

At least he has something else to whine about at his rallies now. Vote for me, I’m the biggliest victim in history. What a platform for re-election!

‘Our Great National Parks’ was magnificent. Especially episode 4 on Monterey Bay, California. Highly recommended. It’s things like this that truly make America great.

And what did he get the Nobel for, guess that goes for most awards in the community.

Oh boy, I bet the ketchup is really hitting the walls at Mar-A-Lago...

Don't worry Donald, you''ll be getting your "just reward" soon - multiple indictments for obstruction of justice and violation of the Espionage Act...

ROFL...

The former two-term U.S. president had already won a pair of Grammy Awards -- for audio versions of his memoirs "The Audacity of Hope" and "Dreams from My Father"

Well could have also added that any critique of these memoirs landed you into legal ramifications, the conservative commentator Dinesh D'Souza found it out the hard way.

So only dinesh found out? ‘Any’ critique? The prisons must have been packed to the rafters.

Oh and dinesh voluntarily pleaded guilty and was convicted. As I recall the crime wasn’t “disliking a book”.

Exactly, perfectly said.

Oh and dinesh voluntarily pleaded guilty and was convicted. As I recall the crime wasn’t “disliking a book”.

Oh.. so you know and followed that case, in that case you know that the only option he had was to plead guilty, that is they forced him to cut a deal.. else the legal ramifications would have been much stiffer.

GOAT.

Sure sure. Years later still so much winning with an ‘h’

honestly don’t know and didn’t follow the case, but if he took the deal wouldn’t that imply that Mr. D’Souza thought he was gonna lose and so salvaged what he could?

He has a fiction movie he produced out now also. KInda fairy-tale or something. Very favorably reviewed. Talented guy.

5 ( +8 / -3 )

Such a incredibly stark contrast to either Trump or Bush in post-presidency.

in fairness to W, he’s turned out to be a pretty darned good painter.

An Emmy.

Yeah, definitely good entertainment.

LOL

Barack Obama reads scripts aloud very well. Seems the left could congratulate him on the Emmy and move on.

congratulations!

Hollywood newcomer Barack Obama was awarded an Emmy for narrating his Netflix documentary series "Our Great National Parks," the Television Academy announced Saturday.

Really happy he is finally recognized for an actual accomplishment.

Well done!

Makes up for a vacuous 8 years in office.

The review bombing is real. How many of our resident naysayers watched the show before deciding they didn’t like it?

6 ( +11 / -5 )

I couldnt say if liked it or liked it due to all the immediate noise from the usual we hate Trump obsessives.

Once that noise was finally eliminated I was able to congratulate him on his legitimate achievement.

He has a very nice reading voice to do such things as voice overs. very well spoken, right?

To the Obama’s celebrities and Hollywood loved and accepted in that circle was always and still is a huge thing for them.

I do not understand any of that sentence.

I tested that sentence on the Hemingway Editor and it came back as very hard to read.

President Obama may have earned an Emmy…but a Nobel Peace Prize? For doing nothing other than being elected the U.S. president!?!

For doing nothing other than being elected the U.S. president!?!

Can’t be that easy. His successor couldn’t manage it.

Interesting.

I rarely watch TV or films but I find Obama engaging, intelligent and eloquent. I might give this a go.

He’s an impressive man. Very classy. Real quality.

the only option he had was to plead guilty

...because he was guilty. Of illegal campaign contributions and causing false statements to be made to the Federal Election Commission. Nothing to do with 'criticising' Obama.

Correct. He is a damn sight better than the semi-literate, Adderall-addict that followed him.

Trump couldn't script read a fart after 3 hours at an all you can eat buffet.

Oh, and Obama is unlikely to be indicted within the next couple of months. So there's that as well.

There's also Obama's whole shtick about speaking in complete sentences.

That was refreshing as well.

Gladly anticipating for his turn to win Grammys and Oscar too! Woke Hollywood is going to capitalize on that!

He’s already won a Grammy. Twice.

It’s in the article handily provided below the headline.
