Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Impressed"

    It was entertaining, candid and still informative. These past 8 years have truly been a great one for the history books.

    "Enjoyable"

    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

    "Great listen, strange narrative style"

    Extremely funny yet informative book. Very good voice acting for some of the players, narrative style took some getting used to.

    Story
    "Not my cup of tea."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Listening was time not well spent. I forgot how toxic and offensive to normal people the bickering of politicians is. To be clear this book IS FUNNY. But it's also a disgusting.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I wouldn't have changed the story. The story is about stupid people fighting and lying to each other...like what politicians always do.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    I liked Bill Clinton actor.


    Was Black Man, White House worth the listening time?

    If you are a junky of this type, yes.
