Gibbs Shares Regret for Explosive Michelle Obama Spat
Former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said he regrets losing his cool during an explosive 2010 White House staff meeting, in which he reportedly shouted profanities about the first lady.
Gibbs downplayed the blowup, reported in a new book by New York Times correspondent Jodi Kantor, saying in a written statement today, in any high-pressure work environment there are occasional arguments and disagreements and that is certainly true of the White House. I regret speaking in anger and regret that this disagreement became so public.
The incident followed reports that Michelle Obama had told French first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy that life in the White House was hell. Gibbs spent the morning of Sept. 16, 2010, crafting a response and denying the reports, which the first lady confirmed to be false.
The next morning, however, Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett announced at a staff meeting that the first lady was dissatisfied with the way the White House had handled the situation, according to Kantor.
Gibbs reportedly exploded at Jarrett, cursing and using the F word to unleash his frustrations with the first lady.

***...in which he reportedly shouted profanities about the first lady.***
For the first time in my life I’m proud of Robert Gibbs.
I bet he loved it
I am loving that some of the truth is coming out about this America hating marxist racist duo.
ABC last tnight portrayed this book as showing how lovely and real 0dumbo and moosechelle are
I had to puke after that
MO is the poorest excuse for a First Lady we have ever had. How effective can she be as a First Lady if she goes around with an 800 lb. chip on her shoulder all the time.
MO is a hateful creep and is way out of her element. PERIOD!
If this is true, then Gibbs may be less of a turd than I thought.
When you speak to mooooochele is must be in a manner that she understands.
This just proves what I already knew Obama’s press secretary is nothing but a PAID LIAR. And it seems michele was unhappy because he didn’t tell a good enough lie about her.
I’m with Gibbsy on this one.
First, Moochelle commits a bone-headed gaffe.
Then Gibbs and co. have to bust their asses trying to tamp down the uproar.
Then, to add insult to injury, Moochelle says he did a bad job of it.
Yeah, I can see myself detonating over that.
Who is this person? Does anyone have any more information on her - say a picture?
