Obama’s Evil Twin
Surpassed only by *The Expendables 2*, with Sylvester Stallone, the Dinesh D’Souza political documentary *2016: Obama’s America* was the second-highest grossing movie in America the week that it opened—timed to coincide with the Republican National Convention—and is now among the top ten highest earning documentaries in history.
