Former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle just can’t stay out of the spotlight.
Between planting roots in Washington, D.C. and opposing the president, the Obamas are not done with their time in the spotlight.
Now, Michelle is taking her obsession with fame a bit too far with a crazy new scheme to make money.
Michelle Obama will soon be releasing a book of photos of herself from her time in the White House.
The book is set to be released in October under the name, “Chasing Light”.
“Chasing Light” is being publicized as an “inspirational work”, where the authors want to “spread her light”.
Books of Obama photographs will be in the news this fall.
A collection of White House pictures of Michelle Obama is coming out Oct. 17, Ten Speed Press told The Associated Press on Tuesday. “Chasing Light” will feature 150 color shots and personal commentary by White House photographer Amanda Lucidon.
“Mrs. Obama is a source of light and inspiration in my life,” Lucidon said in a statement issued through Ten Speed, a Penguin Random House imprint. “She was a mentor to me and so many people around the world. The work she has done with young people, especially girls and underserved youth, has helped me realize that I want to spend my life helping others reach their fullest potential.”
Worse yet, a second book will be released with photographs of Obama himself.
Chasing Light” arrives three weeks before “Obama: An Intimate Portrait,” a book of Barack Obama pictures by White House photographer Pete Souza. Souza has built a wide following on social media by posting shots of Obama that contrast dramatically with images from Donald Trump’s administration.
Does the former president have such little pride in himself that he is willing to profit from glorified selfies?
Obama seems determined to stay a part of the political scene, despite tradition calling for him to quietly retire.
He was a staunch adversary to President Trump’s recent decision to pull out of the Paris Agreement and remains a constant nuisance in the political scene.
It is time for the Obama family to give up their moment in the spotlight.
Do you believe the Obama family is stooping to a new low by publishing these books?
Do you think it’s time for the Obama family to go away?
