Had no clue this was on, but looks like the audience wasn't there for the show. Another Obama grift gone up in smoke. But I'm sure Showtime money helped put the down payment on the mansion on Cape Cod....


TV Series Based On Michelle Obama Gets Cancelled After Just One Season

A series on the Showtime network called ‘The First Lady’ that was based on Michelle Obama has been cancelled after just one season.

This is somewhat surprising, when you consider the way Ms. Obama is covered by the media. According to them, she is one of the most beloved and popular figures in the country.

If that’s true, why didn’t the show last? Weren’t people watching it:


Showtime’s ‘The First Lady,’ Starring Viola Davis as Michelle Obama, Is a One-Term Flop
There will be no second term for Showtime’s The First Lady, which starred Viola Davis as Michelle Obama. The dramatic anthology series has been canceled after just one season following ridicule from viewers and widespread negative reviews.
The series also failed to pick up any major Emmy Award nominations, though it did receive a few nods in technical categories.
Showtime confirmed the cancellation in a statement sent to multiple outlets on Monday, saying the show “will not be moving forward with another season.”
The First Lady focused the wives of the presidents, with the plan to cover three administrations per season. The first season also starred Michelle Pfeiffer as Betty Ford and Gillian Anderson as Eleanor Roosevelt.
The show was the target of widespread negative reviews, with the New Yorker magazine calling it a “bad-wig costume drama” and Time magazine concluding that Davis and Anderson were “egregiously miscast.”
Many viewers also took issue with the Viola Davis’ decision to purse her lips in imitation of Michelle Obama, with some saying the affectation was exaggerated and distracting.

Well,

Some folks feel such and intense sense of white guilt, they even bought her book, and have gone to see Hamilton several times. My Father in Laws live in is that person. She is nice, but politically nuttier than squirrel turds. Her daughter is large lesbian that lives in Seattle now, after leaving San Francisco, go figure.

Well, it would be like Disney trying to make an entire series of prequels based on wookies. They can't speak, or do much of anything else for that matter, so where would things like character development go? Oh, wait, never mind..... Truth is they are trying to grease the skids for another obummer administration. Like melt said lipstick and wigs on a freak doesn't change anything.

The attempt,to turn this nation's entertainment industry products, black, based upon 13% of the population...........with the intent and to instill the 1619 and CRT false propaganda, and deranged homosexualism/sodomitism, as mainstream, is beyond sickening.

Less than 3% is homosexual and less that 13% is black.

Lincoln was right.
