All too cruel. Especially the part where UN Ambassador Samantha Power holds an election night party for all 37 female UN ambassadors, and her only worry is that Hillary Clinton might win so quickly that the guests won't have much time to enjoy themselves before the election is over.
Yeah, that party was a big failure.
I'm a little surprised this documentary was released, seeing that its premise was massively refuted by Trump's victory.
According to HBO The Final Year is about Obama's legacy:
The Final Year follows each of these personalities [Secretary of State John Kerry, UN Ambassador Samantha Power, Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes, National Security Adviser Susan Rice, and President Obama] as they travel the world over the course of 2016, attempting to solidify and "lock-in" policies that they believe will define their legacy, promote diplomacy, and fundamentally alter how the U.S. government confronts questions of war and peace – all while preparing to hand over the machinery of American power to a new administration.
Watching it now amounts to an overdose of schadenfreude. But I'm watching it anyway.
