New Book: Oprah Calls Michelle Obama and Valerie Jarrett “Tiresome”, Says They Are “Walking Agendas” Who Always Want Something
Ed Klein’s new book is giving Americans lots of juicy information about what life with the Royal Family — excuse me, First Family — is like. One of the juicy tidbits is that Oprah, the person that leaves Democrats clamoring for her backing, can’t stand Michelle Obama.
The lovey-dovey public relationship between Oprah Winfrey and the President and Michelle Obama is a mirage, according to a new book that says first lady badgers the TV giant for favors and makes the fellow Chicagoan feel “jumpy.”
In his latest political book, “Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. the Obamas,” best-selling author Edward Klein also reveals that “Oprah feels slighted by the Obamas” but would walk on hot coals for Bill and Hillary Clinton, who she is eager to help in a 2016 presidential election.
Klein writes: “ ‘I have a much warmer relationship with Hillary than I do with either Michelle or Barack,’ Oprah said. ‘The Clintons make me feel at ease 100 percent of the time. But even when the Obamas think they are being charming, they hold you at arm’s length. They make me jumpy, even when the obviously don’t mean to.’ ”
Klein, whose critical book about Obama, “The Amateur,” was best-seller, writes in his new work that the first lady and top aide Valerie Jarrett are needy. “Being with them over a period of time can be tiresome,” he quotes Winfrey saying.
“They’re always badgering you for something,” wrote Klein on page 261. “I’ve spent much of my life fending off powerful and not-so-powerful people who want things from me. But these two women are something else again. They’re walking agendas. Their wish list never stops.”
It’s hilarious how a diehard liberal like Oprah would be unable to understand how politicians who build their base by promising people handouts would, likewise, always be grabbing for handouts. Barack and Michelle Obama have no idea what it means to work, or earn something for themselves. Being the liberals that they are, it’s not exactly surprising that they feel entitled to anything that they ask for.
