Obama's fratty speech writing team

At Ace of Spades, Oregon Muse reports,
Apparently, working in the Obama White House was great if you wanted to grab a little mish:

A new memoir documents a Barack Obama White House in which a fratty speech writing team smoked, drank, told "dick jokes," and used their jobs to sleep with women.

David Litt, a former Obama speech writer, will release Thanks Obama: My Hopey Changey White House Years in September, the Daily Mail reports.
What, Obama staff memebers using the perks of their positions to indulge themselves at taxpayer expense? Where was Anderson Cooper? Where was Jake Tapper? Where was Geraldo Rivera?

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.
Whaa-? I thought all of this sort of groping and grabbing and bedding hotties was invented by Donald Trump! I'm absolutely flabbergasted.

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.
Aaaaaah! You can just *smell* the diversity!

When Litt was first hired by the WH, he was 24 years old. I have socks older than him.

I have no idea if any of this is going to turn out to be true. But you can be sure that the MSM will do its best to ignore or bury this book when it's released.
