Netflix named former National Security Adviser and Ambassador to the United Nations under Barack Obama, Susan Rice, to their Board of Directors.
The move led to an online backlash from conservatives who – 1) Don’t know what her background in national security has to do with entertainment and 2) Are still a little disturbed that she was involved in the Benghazi cover-up, unmasking private citizens, and exchanging high-ranking terrorists for a deserter in Bowe Bergdahl.
The move appears to be an agreeable one for the former President, since rumors have indicated Obama himself will be developing a series of programming that will provide him with a “global” and “unfiltered” platform to the public.
What better person to have on the board than someone who helped him fabricate a work of pure fiction regarding Benghazi?
National Rifle Association spokeswoman Dana Loesch concurs, tweeting that Netflix is “the perfect place for a former staffer who blamed a terror attack on a poorly-made short film.”

Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton also weighed in, saying the entertainment company is supporting corruption in the previous administration.
Netflix “doubles down in support of Obama corruption,” he wrote, “compromised Susan Rice, who lied repeatedly on both Benghazi and the unmasking issue joins its Board of Directors.”

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings defended the company’s decision.
“For decades, she has tackled difficult, complex global issues with intelligence, integrity and insight and we look forward to benefiting from her experience and wisdom,” he said.
Apparently trading terrorists for traitors is dealing with ‘complex global issues,’ while lying about a YouTube video to cover up the deaths of four Americans counts for ‘integrity and insight.’
Conservatives vowed to cancel their Netflix subscriptions over the move, sparking the hashtag #BoycottNetflix.

Netflix is following in the footsteps of the Obama way, introducing a revolving door of former administration members to their company.
Meanwhile, former Secret Service member Dan Bongino has the perfect motto for the company.
