Mr Conservative A former speechwriter for Barack Obama is airing all of the ex-president’s dirty laundry in a bombshell tell-all book.
Daily Mail reported that in his new memoir, speechwriter David Litt describes Obama’s White House as a place that much resembled a fraternity house. He explained that he was part of an all-male, all-white and all under-40 team which produced speech after speech for the president.
In Obama’s White House, aides regularly referred to each other as “bro” and spent much of their free time drinking and smoking together.
“I studied the West Wing with my anthropological intensity, and had learned to translate my boss’s unique dialect: the curt, one-line message,” Litt wrote. “The final category of email, and by far the most precious, was any message containing the words ‘boom!’ or ‘bro.’ These were special. They meant you were totally killing it and had established yourself as a valued member of the team.”
Litt also bragged that he and his fellow aides used their White House credentials to pick up girls.
“There was the winter, for example, when a blond local newscaster caught the eye of a co-worker. (I’ll call him Chase, because that’s what he enjoyed),” he wrote, adding that Chase often invited the woman to the White House. “Each time she arrived…he’d charm her for a few minutes, drop a couple of names, and then apologize for being so busy he couldn’t stay. It was almost too easy. After sealing the deal, Chase bragged about his conquest, but anyone could tell he was just going through the motions.”
This is certainly not the picture of his White House that Obama wants portrayed. What do you think about this? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
