Yesterday, former President Barack Obama met in New York City for dinner with “I’d like to punch him in the face,” actor Robert DiNero and Apple CEO Tim Cook.
They were seen spending several hours eating together at Yves Restaurant in Tribeca.
In 2016, when DeNiro was asked about the violent protests against President Trump were an appropriate response to the outcome of the election, he replied: “Yes, absolutely. Things aren’t being done right.”
Only one month before the 2016 election, DeNiro called President Trump, a “punk, a dog, a pig, a con, a bullshit artist, a mutt who doesn’t know what he’s talking about,” threatening, “I’d like to punch him in the face.”
According to the Daily Mail, Obama’s been keeping busy since leaving the White House and last year signed a multi-million dollar deal with Netflix along with his wife Michelle to produce content that reflects the couple’s values.
Netflix is trying to hold onto its vast customer base as cheaper alternatives from the likes of Apple, Disney, and others go live next month.
Netflix said in a statement that the Obamas would ‘produce a diverse mix of content – including docu-series, documentaries, and features’ for the streaming powerhouse under their own production company, Higher Ground Productions.
Michelle and Barack Obama’s first Netflix documentary produced under the deal with the streaming powerhouse was released on August 21 of this year.
While American Factory never mentions Trump by name, analysts say it offers a biting criticism of the president’s failure to grasp complex global economic forces as he promises to reinvigorate manufacturing in America.
The reason for the meeting between Barack Obama, DiNero, and Apple CEO Tim Cook is unknown, but rest assured, the former community organizer turned president won’t be sitting back on his laurels while President Trump sails into another four years in the White House.
