D.C. WHISPERS: The Obama-Jarrett Tirade That Had Staff Running For Cover
Being President of the United States is a job of enormous responsibility and pressure – just ask Valerie Jarrett.
This latest D.C. Whispers report indicates the stress of being de facto President of the United States is finally starting to wear down the normally ruthless and stoic source of power and manipulation for all things Obama…
No fewer than three different sources with similar stories now circulating the halls and offices of the Capitol Building. There was a recent altercation between the president and Valerie Jarrett that actually lasted several days and ended up with Jarrett “shredding” the president from behind closed doors for what I’m told was up to ten minutes of uninterrupted “rage.” Staff were scrambling to stay out of the way of both of them.
I’m told Jarrett’s mood turned bad shortly after a meeting/conversation/communication she had with someone associated with the IMF. This was a week or so ago according to one source, but another said it was actually in early August. The White House Senior Adviser wanted a “face to face” with IMF Director Christine Lagarde but Lagarde has been ignoring the request and it’s well known around here that Valerie Jarrett is not used to having people blow her off. When Jarrett finally had someone associated with the IMF cornered, she was told Director Lagarde was too busy but that they would “be in touch.” This dismissal had Valerie Jarrett grumbling to her own staff for days, so much so that she then reached out to complain to Senator Schumer to ask if there was something they could do to “push along that investigation.” This in turn caused Schumer to share the conversation with some on his own staff, going so far as to complain about the Obama Whitehouse with the following – “They’ve all gone batsh*t crazy over there.”
(NOTE: I don’t know what “that investigation” is in reference to, but will attempt to find out. – UM)
I wasn’t aware before of a grudge between Jarrett and Lagarde but apparently it exists and is getting meaner by the day.
