From the New York Post:
As the White House was gearing up to sell ObamaCare to the American people last summer, Valerie Jarrett, the president’s pointwoman on a host of issues, phoned Oprah Winfrey.
She invited the Queen of All Media to join celebrities, including Amy Poehler, Jennifer Hudson and Alicia Keys, to meet with President Obama and discuss how they could generate publicity for his health-care law.
“All of Oprah’s top people thought she would go, because when the president invites you to the White House, most people automatically say yes,” said one of Oprah’s closest advisers. “But Oprah said she didn’t have the time or inclination to go. It wasn’t like she had to think it over. It was an immediate, flat-out, unequivocal no.”
The article describes a falling out between the Obamas and the Oprah, which may have been precipitated by tension between the talk show star and Moochelle. It is not at all hard to believe that the First Klingon is very jealous of Ms. Winfrey. She is a bitter, angry cauldron of seething rage, after all, over her mistreatment in this “mean” country, which has been pretty good not only to her, but also to the Oprah.
There’s also the Valerie Jarrett factor. She can’t possibly be thrilled at the prospect of having the Oprah hanging out at the White House, having Obama’s ear and perhaps even becoming a trusted advisor. The thought of the threat to her power and influence has to send a chill down Valerie’s spine. Remember what happened to Desireè Rogers after all.
I’m sure that the Oprah will cry all the way to the bank over being dissed by Barack and Mooch. I could have warned you, Oprah, about these two race-hustling grifters, not that you would have listened.
