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.
"The four narrators will have listeners cracking up throughout this comedic look at America's first black president.... The voices that represent well-known people such as Joe Biden and Bill and Hillary Clinton are fully recognizable as delivered by the cast." (AudioFile)

Clever and Hilarious!
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!!!
