How to Make a President Funny

From a story on by Sam Stein headlined “How to Make a President Funny”:

David Litt, the author of the New York Times best-seller Thanks, Obama, a comedic White House memoir, was a speechwriter for the former president from 2011 to 2016. For several of those years, he ran point on the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, fielding jokes from speechwriters and developing material for the president. Ahead of this year’s dinner, we had Sam Stein catch up with Litt about how to make a president funny, what made Barack Obama a “natural performer” and Donald Trump’s one good joke.
