I’ve got $100 staked on it.
If the Mooch gets picked by Biden (or whoever the dems nominate), you can kiss America goodbye forever.
It’s a plain and simple bet. First come, first served.
Dem candidate + Mooch = loss for Trump and loss of senate.
Take it or leave it. I don’t want any equivocating, excuses, hypotheticals, trying to convince me otherwise that Americans aren’t dumb enough to do that, etc. Remember, it was those same dumb Americans that got us Obongo in 2008 where WAY BACK in 2004 when he spoke at the convention I said he would win if he ran.
Becoming, which is directed by Nadia Hallgren, will take viewers behind the scenes as Michelle Obama travelled to 34 cities on the tour for her book. It will be released on May 6.
It is the latest film since the former President and his wife signed a landmark deal with the streaming service in 2018. The pair, who run Higher Ground Productions, were involved in Crip Camp, the Nicole Newnham and James LeBrecht-directed film about a summer camp for teens with disabilities. Their first film, American Factory, won the Best Documentary Feature Oscar.
Elsewhere, Higher Ground, which is run by Priya Swaminathan and Tonia Davis, recently boarded Exit West, Joe and Anthony Russo’s AGBO production of Mohsin Hamid’s bestseller starring Rogue One: A Star Wars Story‘s Riz Ahmed.
The film is directed by Nadia Hallgren, a filmmaker and cinematographer from the Bronx. She is best known as the DP on Oscar-nominated and Sundance Grand Jury Prize-winner Trouble the Water and CNN’s When We Rise: Michelle Obama’s Mission to Educate Girls Around the World as well as Motherland, a detailed depiction of a Manila maternity ward with director Ramona Diaz, and has worked on films including Fahrenheit 9/11, Searching for Sugarman and The Hunting Ground.
“Those months I spent traveling — meeting and connecting with people in cities across the globe — drove home the idea that what we share in common is deep and real and can’t be messed with. In groups large and small, young and old, unique and united, we came together and shared stories, filling those spaces with our joys, worries, and dreams. We processed the past and imagined a better future. In talking about the idea of ‘becoming,’ many of us dared to say our hopes out loud,” said Michelle Obama. “I treasure the memories and that sense of connection now more than ever, as we struggle together to weather this pandemic, as we care for our loved ones, tend to our communities, and try to keep up with work and school while coping with huge amounts of loss, confusion, and uncertainty.”
She praised Hallgreen and said viewers would find “respite” in the film. “Because she’s a rare talent, someone whose intelligence and compassion for others comes through in every frame she shoots. Most importantly, she understands the meaning of community, the power of community, and her work is magically able to depict it,” she added.
Obama admitted that in the current times it’s hard to “feel grounded or hopeful”, and said as a “hugger”, it’s difficult to say “I’m here for you”.
