    Even without trying, the Obamas are too popular, too effective, have too much reach, too much influence, and too much cool..

    And folks can’t stand it..

    The same folk who demand that they “go away”, “disappear” ..the ones who’ve ‘canceled’ and ‘unfollowed’ them … but won’t stop stalking and obsessing about them.. the very same folk who then in unison, when push comes to shove, turn around finger-wagging, yelling and demanding that the Obamas “do or say something..” ..same folks that periodically splice photographs and videos of their faves with one or both of the Obamas.. and ‘amplify’ said spliced photos/videos, just to boost their faves.. even while also insidiously plotting and desperately trying to supplant the Obamas.. and mad that try as they may, they can’t..

    Folk from all sides, taking shots at the Obamas and desperately trying to take them out ..or at the very least, looking to take the shine off them, to curb their popularity, influence …and these folks have been trying to do so for a very, very long time..

    Never-mind the bogus insistence from the haters, and from those who now resent them because they couldn’t usurp their popularity or hijack them entirely for the purposes of boosting their faves.. folks who claim to hate them ‘now’ because they’ve ‘changed’.. most of these folks have been condescending to the Obamas for years, and have been trying to put them in ‘their place’ ever since they showed up, and once these folks saw that they were formidable..as individuals, and as a couple.. And when his unpretentious, phenomenal, fully-black wife refused to be coopted for their political purposes.. refused to kiss the brass rings of the many self-styled annointers/kingmakers.. refused to prioritize them over her family, or long-overlooked black kids in D.C’s neighborhoods.. refused to become BFFs or have tea with them or invite them over for parties or dinners or lunches.. refused to give them tours of their White House bedroom.. they all lost it.. and they’ve all been and stayed mad for the loooooonngest time..

    They resent the Obamas for easily outshining them all ..they utterly resent needing the Obamas.. to bolster them, to buoy their faves ..to vouch for and to validate them and their faves, their campaigns, their agenda.. They resent the Obamas for their faves not having what the Obamas naturally and effortlessly possess in spades.. That magic, that touch.. the “it” factor.. and all while still being naturally and effortlessly relatable …and able to reach hearts, and change minds..

    The Obamas genuinely rock … organically.. no paid influencers, astroturfed ‘crowds’, no hive, no squad, no artificial ‘enthusiasm’ or fake rah-rahs.. no embellished tales or cheerleaders, necessary.. No need for fake rallying cries.. no woe is me victimhood – even as they’ve so gracefully and dignifiedly withstood the unimaginable..

    They Obamas have set new standards, scaled new heights, that everyone’s trying to scale, mimic, rip off …while also pretending it’s no biggie, or worse, insisting that the Obamas have ‘done nothing’..mocking those things they possess that they are all trying to co-opt, copy, replicate without any of the successes that the Obamas have… they all crave the celebrities the Obamas easily draw.. they crave the book deals, Netflix deals, Spotify deals.. the Oscar, Emmy, Grammy wins.. the #1 best-selling books, magazine covers that sell out, sold out arena-size crowds that show up for the Obamas, globally..

    But they’ll sniff, tsk-tsk, strongly pooh-pooh all of it and pretend that it’s all just such ‘bad form’, ‘bad optics’.. even as they demand the same for their faves.. and until of course, they and their faves can get some of what the Obamas have.. they’ll attack the Obamas for ‘surrounding themselves with celebrities’ and resent how celebrities genuinely love, respect, gravitate towards the Obamas ..and want to hang out with the Obamas.. They resent that they aren’t getting the same A-list celebrities the Obamas have swarming to them.. but then name-drop, hype up & go wild over being in proximity to or nabbing some random z-lister for something..

    The poisonous darts including from supposed ‘allies’, have been coming at the Obamas for a very long time now, and from every direction.. the right-wingers/GOPers – trumpers and never-trumpers, libertarians.. the various factions of the Democratic Party looking to take the Obamas down to prop up their person.. the Biden folk, the Clinton folk, the Carter folk, the Pelosi folk.. the Bernie folk.. along with the massa-serving black opportunists evenly split among, and now thirstily hopping from bandwagon to bandwagon ..depending on which way the wind blows …between the Clintons, Bernie, and recently Biden, since the temporary ‘power’ shift.. the endlessly green-eyed, opportunistic black a-holes.. the smarmy Jaime Harrison, fork-tongued Donna Brazile, shameless Eric Dyson, petty Cornell West, etc..

    They’ve all been trying their darnedest to turn voters, especially ‘the blacks’, against the Obamas.. the various factions each think that if they can smear, tarnish and diminish the Obamas enough, and if the Obamas are no longer ‘beloved’ and can’t help rally folks, then THEY get to come in and hijack, and use and move voters in whatever direction..

    LOL.. It’ll be curious to see how they pull off future election campaigns without the Obamas.. once the various Dem factions are done ‘taking out’ the Obamas… and stabbing each other in the backs while at it, to try gain the ‘upper hand’..

    It’s all just been one loooooonng backstabbing Orwellian sh*tshow for far too long..

    And don’t even get me started on those hangers-on that have always boasted about how they ‘made’ the historic President ..the ones who, no matter how fleeting and peripheral their association, have all made off like bandits – multiple book deals, speaking gigs, other gigs, top executives on boards, access to spaces they’d otherwise never have opened to them.. endlessly trading on their association with the Obamas.. in fact, brazenly taking credit and claiming that they were ‘key’ … those former staffers and campaign supporters who now 14+years later, feel completely entitled to, and demand that they be invited to the Obamas private parties.. and throw tantrums when they aren’t.. or are disinvited because they leaked details of the private party, and really aren’t actually that close to the Obamas.. who initially only felt sort of obligated to include said hangers-on..

    Hangers-on that very tellingly, then showed their sorry b*tts, by running to tell-all to a bloody racist malevolent gossip-monger who for years, has attacked and denigrated the Obamas.. Imagine claiming to be ‘close’ to the Obamas, and running to b*tch to f*cking Maureen Dowd about them..

    Hopefully, the Obamas do a permanent freeze-out of these hangers-on… because as we’ve often mentioned here over the years, it’s been long overdue..

    And, please, someone shut f*cking André Leon Talley the f*ck up.. Imagine endlessly kissing up for decades and freeloading off folks who can’t stand your a*se .. running around like a pretentious buffoonish clown, kissing up to folks who think you’re a fool..just to score designer stuff.. and being currently in court because you’re being evicted from a house you’ve been squatting in and owe years of back rent on.. Imagine endlessly sucking up to the Kardashians.. and then with a straight face, having the nerve to attack the Obamas ..Someone needs to pull up videos and photographs and clips from scenes of that trashy show and show that fool André Leon Tally himself.. embarrassing himself while grinning like a Cheshire Cat with the Kardashians.. and introduce him to ‘tacky nouveau riche’…

    And oy vey.. someone please unplug Laurence Tribe’s access to save him from himself..stop him from making an absolute fool of himself on Twitter, just for clout.. imagine being hardly indistinguishable from Dershowitz at this point.. this fam, is precisely the mindset and energy that the fully-black Michelle Robinson had to contend with as a young fully-black girl from Chicago, at Harvard Law in the 1980s.. This is what and who she had to navigate as her tenured faculty at Harvard Law..

    May this Orwellian full moon, please, please be over soon..

    America is funny.
    Some of y’all tout the country as a bastion of opportunity, where those that work hard will enjoy success. Yet, people stay in the Obamas’ pockets. Other presidents have been far richer.
    No smoke for them. We know why.

    A thread.

    As Cruel as that was, I for one I am relieved that he did (and that H&M had help) because as long as someone is paying your bills you are never truly free.

    Often shared this with my fam here, over the years..

    In any Maureen Dowd ‘opinion’ hit-piece, it’s easy to tell who her sources are, who commissioned the attack, and at whose behest she’s spewing..

    Isn’t it curious that a malevolent gossip like Maureen Dowd not only is great pals with, but has unfettered access to some of the most high-profile Democrats.. and gets ‘exclusives’ from said select Democrats ..and unabashedly name-drops them in her hit-pieces..

    The Bidens, The Carters, Caroline Kennedy, Nancy Pelosi.. etc..

    Isn’t it rather odd how Maureen Dowd somehow never targets these pals of hers who also happen to be her sources..

    Imagine for instance, if the Obamas had a Hunter Biden problem.. no way Maureen Dowd would’ve passed up on repeatedly pummeling them with that in dedicated hit-pieces..

    Can you imagine how Maureen Dowd would’ve reacted to the Obamas wearing Rolex watches at their inauguration.. or ever..

    But somehow, the Obamas are the ones who are ‘elitist’.. and worse, unworthy.. how dare they..

    Last time, Maureen Dowd’s hit-piece focused on my historic FLOTUS.. (the same week, Maureen Dowd was given ‘exclusive access’ to the Bidens’ visit with the Carters in Plains, Georgia..)

    Maureen Dowd wrote that The Carters were ‘most hurt’, that Mrs Obama had not invited Mrs Carter to a luncheon she hosted for First Ladies to discuss Mrs Obama’s Mental Health Project..

    LIES.. LIES.. and, More LIES..

    Mrs Obama NEVER hosted a luncheon for First Ladies.. and Mrs Obama didn’t host any luncheons to discuss a Mental Health Project.. which was actually not one of her focus initiatives…

    We all know that Mrs Obama’s core initiatives as First Lady were: Let’s Move (Health/Well-being); Reach Higher (Education/Student Mentorship – with an emphasis on kids in underserved communities & helping1st-gen kids get into and graduate college/some form of higher Ed.); Joining Forces (supporting Military/Veteran Families beyond lip-service/parades, but in tangible, substantive ways); Let Girls Learn (Global education effort, brilliantly designed to work with the Peace Corps/local organizations familiar with cultures/obstacles, crafting solutions area-specific, to avoid one-size fits all missteps.)

    Very importantly, Mrs Obama actually hosted Mrs Carter several times at the White House – including at 2 events where Mrs Carter actually spoke/gave a speech.. Mrs Obama was incredibly gracious and kind to Mrs Carter, and there are photographs and videos that clearly document this..

    That Maureen Dowd continues with her hit-pieces, is not surprising, but if I were the Obamas, I’d really be extremely wary of these ‘friends’, ‘allies’, self-styled ‘brothers’, who moonlight as Maureen Dowd buddies, grant her unfettered access to feed her hit-pieces.. and keep showing up in these hit-pieces that have spanned years.. and continue, even post White House..

      LOL..

      Unfortunately, this is more gaslighting ..massively disingenuous, and more misleading, than it is true ..and really not what it appears to convey on the face of it.. ..particularly in light of what we’ve witnessed in recent times.. and who statements like this are actually meant to include, bolster, protect, serve, advance..

      In the end, this really isn’t about or for actual black women..

      These periodic ‘happy’ chants amplified through astroturf ‘influencers’ of varying ability/size, is mostly agenda-driven, insidious ..and mostly serves very specific interests and purposes..

      The warped revisionism that gaslights those who actually bear the brunt of actual black womanhood, but are never protected, never defended, never coddled.. The periodic attagirl designed to convince and rally them to some non-existent blanket ‘sistahood’.. but only to cheerlead for those who’ve co-opted/usurped their identity, selectively..
