Barack Reveals His 2020 Playlist
In December 2020, Obama took to his Twitter with a list of audio fire. Some of his favorite songs of the year picks included music from Gunna, JID, Travis Scott, WizKid, and more. He credited his daughter Sasha for pulling together the tracks for him.
“Here are some of my favorite songs of the year. As usual, I had some valuable consultation from our family music guru, Sasha, to put this together. I hope you find a new song or two to listen to.”
Obama’s Favorite TV Shows
Enjoying some downtime now that he’s no longer running the free world, Obama can do things like binge-watch TV shows. Obama recently shared his list of favorite shows. Hinting at some diverse tastes in his TV habits, President Obama named Better Call Saul, The Good Place, Watchmen and The Boys as some of his top shows.
“Better Call Saul, because of its great characters and examination of the dark side of the American dream. The Good Place — it’s a wise and sweet combination of goofy comedy and big philosophical questions. And Watchmen and The Boys, for how they turn superhero conventions on their heads to lay bare issues of race, capitalism and the distorting effects of corporate power and mass media.”
TV Heavyweights Hyped Over Obama Co-Sign
Eric Kripke, creator of The Boys, was geeked to find out that President Obama liked his show. So was The Good Place star D’Arcy Carden.
Ummm. You guys? HOLY. SH*T.
