Barack Obama has done pretty well for himself since leaving office in 2017, and that has Donald Trump so far in his feelings that he can’t see anything but red. Trump swears up and down that the Obama Administration needs to be investigated, but can’t come up with a decent reason why.
Now, President Obama has been nominated for an award that will have Trump jealous for eternity, because like Obama’s Nobel Prize, Trump will never get nominated for a people’s choice award. Obama’s documentary American Factory was nominated for an award.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Barack Obama’s first documentary, a collaboration with Netflix, has been nominated for a people’s choice award for “best political documentary,” “best documentary, and “best director,”
Feedback on Twitter was mixed. Below are some of the mentions:
"American Factory", Barack & Michelle Obama's first Netflix project, has been nominated for a Critics Choice Award.
As if Trump doesn't already have ENOUGH to go off the rails about… can't wait for this twitter tantrum. #MondayMotivation https://t.co/pxwkAqmD9r

There is nothing wrong with capitalism. Child labor is wrong. It is a fact that the Obama’s are okay with international labor being treated in a really 1900s fashion which is going on in China. American Factory is a perfect example.

Trust me he wants to say some shit. He just cant. Republicans let this shit in. Look at the obama netflix special american factory. Its about the chinese factory john kassik fought to bring to america. Spoiler: it lead to Low wages and unsafe work environments. No employee input.

Just watched @BarackObama ‘s American Factory on Netflix. I’m surprised Obama hasn’t come out to endorse @AndrewYang yet. Great documentary about the clash in culture and shows a glimpse of where our country is headed. #Yang2020 #yanggang pic.twitter.com/pvKPFZUebA

American factory. An Obama backed film about automation. Made me realize how much we need a president who understands the 4th industrial revolution. @AndrewYang is the only one who is even talking about this.

Watching American Factory, and I get Trump voters a little bit more, though I get that Trump isn’t the solution. Barack Obama needs to keep supporting work like this—shine a spotlight on the crumbling American middle class

American Factory is playing on Netflix. But definitely don't watch it because Obama's production company did it and trump would hate it to be watched and favorably reviewed.
