Prepare To Laugh! Obama-Era White House Comedy Movie On The Way!

The subject matter they can turn into movies defies human logic. Then again when you have movies like Soul Plane, Snakes On A Plane, or Howard The Duck, then you know just about anything can have its moment in cinematic history.

Well now it looks like there is a new comedy on the horizon, a film based on the Obama-Era White House!

Yep, you read right, a comedy about President Barack Obama’s eight year stint in the White House is on its way!

A former White House stenographer and Universal Pictures have joined forces to bring the people an Obama-era White House Comedy film! 

So, according to The Hollywood Reporter, From The Corner of the Oval is a two part deal! We hear Beck Dorey-Stein, the former stenographer, has pitched the idea of a book–also titled “The Corner of the Oval” which got picked up by Universal to turn into a film. 

Long story short, the storyline follows a waitress who ended up working in the White House. Short story long, the waitress, a woman, lives in Washington, D.C. and is at an “all-time career low;” but life couldn’t keep her down. Life takes a turn for her which landed her in the White House “navigating a series of misadventures in life and love.” There is not concrete air date for the movie–however we hear that the book will be published in 2018. 

I know you’re wondering: “how much will the film focus on the Obamas?!” I had the same thought! 

The Jasmine Brand reports that the movie will focus less on the fort family, and more on the White House and it’s staffer

We are not sure how to feel about this film, but right now we can all use some laughter and I’m sure there were some pretty crazy things that went down in The Oval Office during Obama’s time. Will you be watching? Comment below?

We are down to the final hours of what has been an extraordinary and exemplary presidency headed by a truly great man, President Barack Obama. We know it is inevitable that Trump assumes The Oval Office, but we cannot help but pause and reflect over the eight years of wonder we had under Obama.

Well the President is going to miss us just as much and penned a final farewell to the American people while customarily leaving a note for the incoming President.

You can read it in its entirety below:

president barack obama hey mikey atl

It’s a long-standing tradition for the sitting president of the United States to leave a parting letter in the Oval Office for the American elected to take his or her place. It’s a letter meant to share what we know, what we’ve learned, and what small wisdom may help our successor bear the great responsibility that comes with the highest office in our land, and the leadership of the free world.


But before I leave my note for our 45th p
resident, I wanted to say one final thank you for the honor of serving as your 44th. Because all that I’ve learned in my time in office, I’ve learned from you. You made me a better President, and you made me a better man.


Throughout these eight years, you have been the source of goodness, resilience, and hope from which I’ve pulled strength. I’ve seen neighbors and communities take care of each other during the worst economic crisis of our lifetimes. I have mourned with grieving families searching for answers – and found grace in a Charleston church.

Take A Look Back at President Barack Obama’s (@POTUS) Most Stylish Moments!

barack obama

Just a couple of days ago, literally on this past Tuesday, President Barack Obama returned to his adopted hometown of Chicago to give his presidential farewell address after serving two terms in office. During that time, POTUS delivered an impressive and heartfelt speech which warmed every heart in America, as well as those watching around the world with his passionate words of hope, smooth sense of style and personable demeanor of love. The country witnessed true leadership Tuesday night from one of the best Presidents The US has ever had, and you can fight me on that! However before we get too sensitive and emotional over the last couple of days we still have with the Obama’s, let’s talk about how great of style he’s had over the years. From shopping at the Gap, and his help in the rise of the Dad caps, President Barack Obama has managed to make it through his two presidential terms in style and setting trends. It’s safe to say that Obama has earned the right to be called one of the best-dressed, if not then definitely the only President t swag.hats ever existed to have SWAG.


Let’s take a look back at some of The POTUS most stylish looks.


Of course, Obama knows how to do black tie right. During his UK state visit in 2011, Obama was dressed to impress in a dapper tailcoat, joining the Queen, FLOTUS, and other royalty at the Buckingham Palace for an honorary banquet.

Even in casual attire, Obama was always on point and in season. Pairing together dark jeans with a lighter wash button up shirt, Obama effortlessly puts together the perfect modern day take on the denim-on-denim look.

“Your Legacy Will Live On…” T.I. (@Tip) Pens an Open Letter to President Obama (@POTUS)

t.i.

We are officially “tipping” our hats off to rapper, T.I.!

Despite dealing with a divorce and controversy in his personal life he took the time to write the greatest man of modern times, President Barack Obama. T.I.’s words only echo what so many of “US” feel right now. Read it in its entirety below!

t.i.

You entered humbly into our worlds from the streets of the South Side of Chicago and galvanized a generation. You resonated from the barbershops to the airwaves to the streets of every hood across America. Many of US did not know your name, nor did we truly understand the impact you would have on the world in the years, months and days that followed.

As I reflect, I am filled with gratitude, outrage, grief, anger, humility and appreciation, both for the things you helped bring to light and the many things we still have yet to realize.

For years you fought to keep this nation from the very thing we have now become.

For years, many of US failed you because, as I’ve said before, we were not all ready for the change you wanted to bring about.

But rest assured that we heard you. Rest assured that we felt you and rest assured that your legacy will live on long after your presidency.
