The New York Post reported the Obamas are on their way to becoming a billion-dollar brand, amid highly lucrative deals for books, speeches and Netflix videos.

The latest example of cashing in comes with the former first lady’s new memoir, “Becoming,” which was released last week and was part of a $65 million book advance for both of the Obamas. The Obamas in 2017 inked the $65 million deal after leaving the White House for books written by both the former president and first lady.

Michelle Obama took off the mask the public gave her. We can do the same

In fact, Becoming, and consequentially the entire interview with Winfrey, is about taking off the mask that the public adorned her with from the moment she and husband/former president Barack Obama stepped through the gigantic columns of the White House.

For example, Michelle Obama admitted that she and Barack Obama went so far as to enlist the help of a professional in couple’s therapy. That’s a huge revelation for someone in Michelle Obama’s position because, I know from my own family at least, resorting to third-party assistance is often frowned upon in the black community (that includes nannies and mental health therapists as well).

Peggy Noonan: Melania Trump’s misstep and Michelle Obama’s mystery

The White House’s reputation for chaos, the sense that nobody’s in charge, that it’s all factions, head-butting and rumors about who’s going to get fired next.

It’s not formally defined yet entails many demands; it has an impact on history but no formal powers; it’s the focus of all eyes, but people like to make it clear nobody elected you.
