Barack’s rock? Speaking to a crowd at Pomona College earlier this month, Valerie Jarrett realized that she was a comedienne and didn’t know it.

Laying out what she looks for in a good hire (like Van Jones’ work in Oakland), Jarrett said, “Before I hire anybody, I always check out everything they’ve been doing online, and believe me, we have ways of finding out everything you’ve been doing online.”Where was she at for that 3 AM call?

On the everything part of the statement the group of graduating students erupted in laughter, causing Jarrett to pause in shock and finally add, “That was actually funnier than I intended it to be.”


Happy Monday!
