Report: Auction For Obamas' Book Deal Reaches More Than $60 Million

An auction for rights to books by Barack and Michelle Obama has set a new record for U.S. presidential memoirs, according to a report by the Financial Times.

The auction has reached more than $60 million, the Financial Times reported, citing unnamed sources with knowledge of the sales process. The Obamas are writing separate books but selling the global rights jointly.

One of President Donald Trump's pet conspiracy theories regarding his predecessor was that former Weather Underground member Bill Ayers actually wrote Obama's 1995 book Dreams From My Father.

*

Trump's ghostwriter for The Art of the Deal, on the other hand, told the New Yorker in 2016 that he "put lipstick on a pig" by presenting Trump in a flattering light.

Asked what he would name the book today, ghostwriter Tony Schwartz told the New Yorker: "The Sociopath."

1. This will be the largest after-office bribe Obama can be expected to receive for his eight years..

... of service to the 1%-ers. Numerous "speaking fees," foreign and domestic will round out his retirement slushfund as the rest of the bribes are paid out...

7. Great

another couple of self aggrandizing political idiots making money off wasting our money. How nice. I with pride say i have never read a presidential autobiography. or any self serving book written by a living president. I think we need to pass a law

Once you leave office any book written by you, speeches given, regarding your policies or your "service" while being paid by the american people , all monies made must be donated back to a fund dedicated to medicare and social security."

8. I'll buy it.

It'll be a while, I'm working my way through all the presidents bios, one by one. But what I really, really, really want to be in this book, is what was written in the "envelope" presidents have traditionally left for their successor? Knowing trump doesn't care to read, do you suppose he kept to to one paragraph? Or just to piss him off, did he leave a ten pager?

Enquiring minds.......
