For liberals still mourning the Obamas’ departure from the White House, there’s good news; Michelle has been writing a book about her time as first lady. It’s a perfect addition to any progressive’s coffee table, right next to that tear-stained copy of What Happened by Hillary.
With President Trump visiting Israel Monday, the media have been pushing the narrative that President Obama was Israel’s protector, literally (see headlines below).
