Obama speechwriter says media will help Trump to 2020 reelection – Washington Examiner

Former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau believes that the media will help President Trump win reelection in 2020.

“Trump’s surest path to victory in 2020 will be the same as it was in 2016: depress Democratic turnout. He’ll hit the nominee from the left, knowing that reporters will be more interested in chasing his attacks than calling out his lies and hypocrisy,” Favreau tweeted Monday.

Favreau, 37, joined Barack Obama’s speechwriting team in 2005 when Obama was a freshman senator. After Obama won election to the presidency in 2008, Favreau joined Obama in the White House as the president’s speechwriting director, the second-youngest person to ever hold that position.

Favreau gained fame and some notoriety while working for Obama. Time named Favreau one of the world’s most influential people in 2009.

A picture of Favreau groping a cardboard cutout of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at a party surfaced online in 2008 weeks after Obama won election. Obama had beat out Clinton in the Democratic primary. Favreau was forced to apologize for the incident.

The former speechwriter later joined with several other Obama administration alums to launch the “Pod Save America” podcast, one of the top podcasts on iTunes. Favreau hosts the podcast along with Obama’s former joke writer Jon Lovett, former communications director Dan Pfeiffer, and former National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor.
