David Litt penned some of former President Obama’s most memorable speeches, including his comic turns at White House Correspondents’ Dinners. The stories behind those speeches are the stuff of his new memoir, “Thanks, Obama: My Hopey, Changey White House Years.”

In the audio above, he shares a tale that didn’t make it into the book… Maybe because it involves him stealing. (Please, Smithsonian workers, direct your letters of outrage to David! We are merely the messengers.)
