*Former President Barack Obama released the annual list of his favorite movies, music, and books and Entertainment Weekly was quick to mock him over it.

On Friday, Obama posted the list on social media, writing: “I always look forward to sharing my lists of favorite books, movies, and music with all of you.”

As Urban Hollywood 411 reports, EW later tweeted in response, “Unemployed and with plenty of time on his hands, former president Barack Obama shares annual list of favorite books, movies, and music.”

The post appears to now be deleted. Check out Obama’s full list below.
