Disgusting! Former Obama Speechwriters Crack Up Laughing at ‘You Can Keep’ Your Health Care Plan Promise [VIDEO]
Former Obama speechwriters David Litt, Jon Favreau and Jon Lovett appeared Monday in an episode of PBS’s “Charlie Rose” show to discuss the president’s “great” oratory skills when it came to delivering funny jabs and discussing serious topics.
When Lovett remarked how proud he was of Obama’s “serious speeches” on the economy and health care, Favreau interjected, mocking Lovett for writing the comment, which has since been named 2013′s “Lie of the Year” by PolitiFact.
“I really like, I was very — the joke speeches is the most fun part of this,” Lovett said. “But the things I’m the most proud of were the most serious speeches, I think. Health care, economic speeches.”
“Lovett wrote the line about ‘If you like your insurance, you can keep it,’” Favreau added.
Lovett shot back, “How dare you!”
At that, Rose and the president’s team of former speechwriters began laughing.
