Obama’s Speechwriters Laugh About Lying To Us

Here are three of Obama’s child soldiers — Jon Lovett, Jon Favreau, and David Litt — yukking it up with Charlie Rose about how they all pulled one over on you:

CHARLIE ROSE: My point is do you have equal impact on serious speeches? Because it’s about style, use of language, etcetera?

JON LOVETT, FORMER OBAMA SPEECH WRITER: I really like, I was very — the joke speeches is the most fun part of this. But the things I’m the most proud of were the most serious speeches, I think. Health care, economic speeches.

JON FAVREAU, FORMER OBAMA SPEECH WRITER: Lovett wrote the line about “If you like your insurance, you can keep it.”

LOVETT: How dare you!

[laughter]

LOVETT: And you know what? It’s still true! No.

If you don’t get the hilarious joke, it’s that Lovett did something embarrassing and his buddies are teasing him about it. It’s guy talk. They’re bonding by good-naturedly reminding their friend of his shame. Except instead of muffing a golf shot or something, Lovett helped ruin the American healthcare system by lying to all of us.

Ha ha ha. Good one, guys.

Ben Rhodes is not an anomaly. The whole Obama White House is like this. They’re little boys who think it’s all a game. Sure, Iran will get nukes. Sure, American families are suffering under Obamacare. But the important thing is that these guys won the game.

A fish rots from the head. And the past eight years have been one big rotten fish.

Good thing Trump is gonna save us, right?
