The Obamas were happy to mooch off of the taxpayers for 8 years. Now that the free ride is over, they have to fund the high life themselves.
Barry’s two autobiographies have earned him a whopping $15 million in 11 years.
What a perfect thing for the Obamas to do!
They can write their
hagiographies autobiographies and make a few million.
This is the merging of their two great loves.
Just a few hours after multiple people with knowledge of the joint publishing deal told the Financial Times that bidding had surpassed $60million, The New York Times reveals that the couple has inked a deal with Penguin Random House.
The terms of the deal have not been disclosed however at this time.
It was Penguin who appeared to have the slight edge, having published Barack’s three previous titles…
…’We are absolutely thrilled to continue our publishing partnership with President and Mrs. Obama,’ the chief executive of Penguin Random House, Markus Dohle, said in a statement.
‘With their words and their leadership, they changed the world, and every day, with the books we publish at Penguin Random House, we strive to do the same.’
Dohle then added: ‘Now, we are very much looking forward to working together with President and Mrs. Obama to make each of their books global publishing events of unprecedented scope and significance.’
As part of the deal penguin will also donate 1million books in the Obamas name, a move that might have taken down the price paid in the deal.
