In a new memoir that liberals are trying to sell as ‘lighthearted’, David Litt, an aide in the White House for nearly all of Obama’s presidency has revealed the crude and crass behavior of the entire white house staff, including the president.
Litt reveals that he was part of an all-white, all-male team, where they had a ‘fratboy’ atmosphere. Apparently, his team members frequently drank and used their positions to sleep with women. In the white house itself, they called each other ‘bro’ and dropped curse words.
He revealed that when President Obama would come storming through, he would drop a serious amount of F-bombs himself, setting a new precedent at the white house.
The Daily Mail reports:
A new memoir from one of Barack Obama‘s speech writers will lift the lid on life inside the West Wing – and paint a picture of a surprising bro-culture in the White House.
David Litt, an aide in the White House for nearly all of Obama’s presidency, reveals how he was part of an all-male, all-white and all under-40 team which produced speech after speech for the president.
He also reveals how the team – and other White House aides – drank, smoked, called each other ‘bro’, and liked – or pretended to like – only college basketball to please the president.
One aide used his White House business card to sleep with a blonde D.C. newscaster and boast about it to his co-workers.
Litt does not name the woman, but says that the aide who slept with her was clearly uninterested in a continuing relationship with her.
The revelations are made in his upcoming memoir, Thanks, Obama: My Hopey Changey White House Years, which uncovers the team behind some of the president’s most memorable speeches.
Litt, a Yale graduate who became one of the youngest White House speechwriters in history at the age of 24, reveals the apprehension that came with applying for a National Security Position in Washington with a history of recreational drug use.
All applicants were required to undergo an intense interrogation process – still, Litt remained honest.
‘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,’ he writes.
‘Each day my heart pounded as I scanned my inbox. Had something gone wrong with my urine sample? Had the vetters learned about the month in college when I paired thrift-store blazers with Looney Tunes pajamas and was certain I started a trend?’
Despite drug use being rumored an ‘automatic deal-breaker’ for federal jobs, Litt was cleared to work for the president on April 1, 2011.
He later admits landing such a prestigious job was a benefit of ‘privilege.’
If President Trump’s team acted this way, the liberals would all melt down. President Trump is harassed for complimenting a journalist.
However, the liberals think that this behavior was amusing, continuing to show support for the memoir.
