As President Trump prepares to leave the White House in January, which new reports say may actually happen sans the brute force of federal marshals, our country approaches a period of unprecedented national reckoning about the sheer incompetence and stupidity of our leader for the past four years. While this collective healing will look different for everyone, resulting in tough conversations, grassroots activism, and maybe a few good, cathartic screams into the ol' pillow, for former President Barack Obama, and former first lady Michelle Obama, this healing will reportedly come in the form of producing a brand new Netflix comedy/documentary series via their production company, roasting 45's sheer incompetence for the nation to see.
A collab between the Obama's Higher Ground Productions and TruTV's infamous know it all, Adam Conover of Adam Ruins Everything fame, the show will allegedly "go inside the machine of government and introduce viewers to the civil servants who make it work," according to Deadline. Entitled The G Word With Adam Conover, the show, which is loosely based on Vanity Fair reporter Michael Lewis' 2018 book, The Fifth Risk, "will ask whether government is a dirty word or a trusted institution." After the shitshow that has been the past four years, I think we have our answer loud and clear. Oof. Despite probably telling us what we already know about how our nation's gross mismanagement, especially after four years of Trump, Netflix has seemingly started promoting the series, which is set to being production next year, alongside some, erm, very minimalist cover art. Thinking ahead!
So reader, in honor of the Obama's new (and likely iconic) series, we please make roasting 45 an official national past time? Asking for a friend, of course.
