Mommy, what do speechwriters look like?

If you search Google Images for “speechwriter,” you’d think presidential speechwriters are the only kind.

We recently did so, and the screen shot reveals that of the 20 frames on the first page, 13 are of President Obama and/or his speechwriters and most of the rest are of President Trump, and/or his.

To look at these images you’d think that Jon Favreau invented speechwriting, and that 10 years later it’s going strong.

Good job Jon!

Postscript: Vital Speeches rhetoric editor Neil Hrab points out that results are entirely more representative if you search "speech writer" at the Historic Images website.
