A new memoir written by a former Obama speech writer is set for release in September. And the former president is not going to be too happy about the contents. Without a doubt, this memoir will be one of the most damaging aspects to Obama’s legacy.
David Litt inked a deal to release his memoir entitled Thanks Obama: My Hopey Changey White House Years. It will detail how Obama aides drank excessively, did drugs, and used their job to seduce women:
“After some back-of-the-envelope math, I listed thirty instances of undergraduate marijuana use, plus one experience with mushrooms I made clear I hadn’t enjoyed,” Litt recalls.
He also discusses how romance was “almost painfully easy” for a White House staffer. At least one aide used his position to sleep with a “blonde D.C. newscaster,” although Litt does not specify who. The aide regularly boasted about his conquest to his coworkers.
The White House that Litt describes might be characterized as “fratty.” He writes how the all-male, all-white, all-under-40 speech writing team drank, smoked, called each other “bro,” and followed along with college basketball mostly to please Obama.
“If chest bumping had been permitted in the Oval, we would have gone for it,” Litt writes.
One of the most often used criticisms against Republicans details their so-called anti-feminist practices. Yet here is a White House engaging in some of the most sexist behavior ever recorded.
They even pushed Obama to use sexual jokes:
Off-color jokes were not limited to former governors either. In one particular lewd quip, a speechwriter suggested Obama say, “Let’s put it this way, dreams aren’t the only thing I got from my father.”
But with behavior by the former president like this, we aren’t surprised his staff was just as disgusting.
