For reasons I refuse to disclose, I watched Netflix’s A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding this weekend. The movie is the second in the series of movies about a nonthreatening conventionally attractive journalist named Amber, who goes undercover to interview Richard, the prince of a generic European country called Aldovia. Spoilers: they fall in love. And during Christmas!
Earlier this year, former President Barack Obama inked a “high eight-figure deal” with Netflix to produce original content in the form of “scripted series, unscripted series, docu-series, documentaries, and features.” As luck would have it, the Washington Free Beacon has exclusively obtained what appears to be a partial transcript of the first episode in this vaguely defined yet highly anticipated cinematic endeavor. It is presented below for your immediate edification.
Looking back at the early years of the Obama era, one cannot help but be amused at the apparent earnestness with which the former president declared war on special interests, the “revolving door,” and excessive wealth. Knowing what we know now, it is easy to forget Obama’s pledge to ban lobbyists from his administration, or the time he righteously declared, “At a certain point you’ve made enough money.”
