Valerie Jarrett: I still havenít accepted Trump is president
Washington Examiner ^ | April 02, 2019 | Caitlin Yilek

Valerie Jarrett, a senior White House adviser to former President Barack Obama, writes in her new book that she still hasn’t accepted President Trump won the 2016 election.

"Since the night Donald Trump became president of the United States, I’ve been going through the five stages of grief, sometimes all five in the same day,” Jarrett writes in Finding My Voice: My Journey to the West Wing and the Path Forward.

"In the beginning, denial and anger were high on the list; I still haven't embraced acceptance,” she writes.

Jarrett, a longtime adviser to Obama and his wife Michelle, said that Trump's unexpected victory against Hillary Clinton felt “like a punch to the stomach.”

“Obviously we were surprised by the outcome of the election. It kind of was like a, I’m not sure what the right analogy would be, but like a punch in the stomach, let’s say. Soul-crushing might be another description,” Jarrett said at the time. “But that’s the democracy that we have: The people get to decide and the elections matter and we have to get about the business of doing our job.”

While I don't accept her position that losing an election is as emotionally devastating as losing a loved one, I'll take her at her word. If she's made no progress two years down the road, I'd consider a new therapist.

Good, because I went eight years (now eleven) without calling Obama “President”.

She might need to try some rope therapy. Fixes these things for good in about 10 minutes or so.

And I still can’t accept that Roseanne was fired for telling the truth about that beast.

Guaranteed that ValJar, a.k.a “Obama’s Brain,” is at the center of the treasonous, failed takedown of PDJT.

How do so stupid people become so successful? What is that secret they know and the rest of us doesn’t?
