Barack and Michelle Obama just signed a multi-year production deal with Netflix, and the Internet is freaking outIt's clear that many people miss the Obamas; with the Trump administration's ongoing scandals, some mourn the loss of a warm family and a calm leader. But Obama's detractors say he never put America first or took responsibility for his failures, and his legacy deserves to be dismantled. Do you miss the Obamas?

Netflix announced Barack and Michelle Obama have entered into a multi-year production agreement that will enable the former first couple to produce "scripted series, unscripted series, docu-series, documentaries and features."

Obama fans are very excited about the news.

A lot of people miss the first family.

But not everyone misses the Obamas. To those who believe the Obama administration was a failure and his presidency was the main contributor to America's unprecedented divide, they're glad to see him gone.

And the anger doesn't just come from Trump fans. Plenty of people on the left decry Obama's policies as neoliberal corporatism that handed us Trump. In his critique of Ta-Nehisi Coates, Cornel West called out Coates for failing to recognize how damaging the Obama presidency truly was.

[Obama remained] silent on the 563 drone strikes, the assassination of US citizens with no trial, the 26,171 bombs dropped on five Muslim-majority countries in 2016 and the 550 Palestinian children killed with US supported planes in 51 days... myopic political neoliberalism has no place for keeping track of Wall Street greed, US imperial crimes or black elite indifference to poverty.
