Litt dishes on the all-male, all-white and all under 40 speechwriting team responsible for countless Obama speeches.

He says the team and other White House aides called each other bro.

They drank, smoked, and even pretended to like college basketball to please their boss.

Litt became one of the youngest speechwriters in history in 2011 at the age of 24.

He talked about how the team used their White House positions to pick up women almost on a regular basis.

Litt revealed the ultimate Oval Office power move.

The book is set to hit the shelves on September 19th.
