Obama's former speech writer, publishes a book about writing jokes for the former US president

David Litt, the speechwriter for former US President, Barack Obama has just published a new book titled 'Thanks Obama: My Hopey, Changey White House Years'.
Taking a shot at current president Donald Trump, he says, 'remember when presidents spoke in complete sentences instead of in unhinged tweets?'.
He continued to say, 'Barack Obama’s eight years in the White House were defined by young people – twenty-somethings who didn’t have much experience in politics (or anything else, for that matter), yet suddenly found themselves in the most high-stakes office building on earth. David Litt was one of those twenty-somethings. After graduating from college in 2008, I went straight to the Obama campaign. In 2011'.

He became one of the youngest White House speechwriters in history. Until leaving the White House in 2016, he wrote on topics from healthcare to climate change to criminal justice reform. As President Obama’s go-to comedy writer, he also took the lead on the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, the so-called “State of the Union of jokes”.
