A David Remnick Anectdote About President Obama

Fo shizzle.

Fo shizzle.

“‘This detail is funny and irrelevant so I’ll retail it,’ he said. ‘I was in a meeting with President Obama not long ago, on foreign policy, that was off the record. One of the people was kind of hectoring about the fact of how much money we give to Egypt, to which the president replied, ‘True dat.”

The crowd erupted.

‘I thought, I will bet this is the first time that this has happened in any kind of briefing ever in the White House,’ said Remnick.”
