From legendary comedian D. L. Hughley comes a bitingly funny send-up of the Obama years, as "told" by the key political players on both sides of the aisle.
What do the Clintons, Republicans, fellow Democrats, and Obama's own family really think of President Barack Obama? Finally, the truth is revealed in this raucously funny oral history parody.
There is no more astute - and hilarious - critic of politics, entertainment, and race in America than D. L. Hughley, famed comedian, radio star, and original member of the Kings of Comedy. In the vein of Jon Stewart's America: The Book, Black Man, White House is an acerbic and witty take on Obama's two terms, looking at the president's accomplishments and foibles through the imagined eyes of those who saw history unfold.
Hughley draws upon satirical interviews with the most notorious public figures of our day: Mitt Romney ("What's 'poverty'? Is that some sort of rap jargon?"); Nancy Pelosi ("I play F**k/Marry/Kill, and there's a lot more kills than fu**ks in Congress, believe me."); Rod Blagojevich ("You can't sell political offices on eBay; I discovered that personally."); Joe Biden ("I like wrestling."); and other politicians, media pundits, and buffoons. It is sure to be the most irreverent - and perhaps the most honest - look at American politics today.

"Clever and Hilarious!"
This book was so clever and funny. The use of the most well known political figures of the time made it interesting and easy to follow. It brought back memories of the election of President Obama in a way that I never thought of. D.L. Hughly is smart, funny and should continue his political observations for the current election cycle.
"Insightful and Entertaining"
Yes, the narration was terrific. I laughed aloud many, many times listening to this book.
Michelle Obama's note of people crying during the Inauguration. I remember being teary while voting; it was so exciting to be part of electing our first black President and to finally have one was surreal and wonderful.
Whenever the narration switched to the Special Agent, there was a painfully loud censorship bleep (understanding that the Agent's name shouldn't be released); it was very disruptive and like an ice pick to the head.
Absolutely! And, I'd take all my girlfriends!!!
Very informative, funny and timely. Please start your next book on the present sh$&@t-, I mean, situation!
"not what I expected"
I really didn't find it as funny or interesting as the reviews suggested. Oh well
"A fun listen"
Brilliant moments, I dislike certain premises though. Seems to be slightly biased, and funny enough, Barack Obama himself is barely there ;-)
This book deserves to win for best narrator. It is funny, truthful. It is one of the best books I have ever downloaded from audible
"Good comedy, good book."
The going back and forth between voices was somewhat distracting at first but it was a good audio book, a nice humorous summary of those times and what those people may have thought.
"So freaking good!"
It was historically on point. It was hilariously funny. And it gave you such a deep perspective on the Obama Administration and his quest to become President of the United States.
It was entertaining, candid and still informative. These past 8 years have truly been a great one for the history books.
The only thing that could have made this better would have been to have an impressionist, to hear what would have sounded like the real person would have been icing on the cake
