Congressman Tim Ryan is firing again at haters who say Barack and Michelle Obama acquired fortunate with their first Oscar nomination … he says Kobe Bryant and Tom Brady went by the identical course of earlier than of us lastly woke as much as their greatness.
We acquired the Ohio Rep. on Capitol Hill Wednesday and our man requested if the Obama’s have been extra fortunate than good in getting their first movie nominated for an Oscar.
The Obama’s manufacturing firm is behind “American Manufacturing facility,” a Netflix documentary that takes a deep dive into post-industrial Ohio, the place a Chinese language billionaire opens a brand new manufacturing facility within the husk of an deserted Common Motors plant and hires 2,000 blue-collar People.
Tim says the film, which earned a nod for greatest documentary characteristic, is an correct depiction of what is been unfolding in his State for many years … and he is applauding the Obamas for telling a narrative that must be heard.
It is extraordinarily uncommon for filmmakers and manufacturing corporations to get an Oscar nod on their first undertaking, however Tim ain’t shopping for the luck issue so far as the Obamas are involved.
Tim says critics used to say the identical factor about Kobe and Brady early of their careers, and look how that turned out.
