Valerie Jarrett, former senior adviser to then-President Barack Obama, said Thursday that the 2016 election result was gut-wrenching, and she did not see the election results coming.
Elections have consequences, Ms. Jarrett said on MSNBCs Morning Joe. I actually didnt see the election coming out the way it did.
Ms. Jarrett said she will continue her work on issues she cares about from the private sector, saying the former president and first lady will also likely remain in the private sector.
When asked if she had any discussion with former first lady Michelle Obama about a possible run for office, Ms. Jarrett said, I dont think that would be fruitful, adding, I dont think she really wants to run for office.
Ms. Jarrett said both she and Mr. and Mrs. Obama are focused on fostering the next generation of leaders.
Hes really interested in finding the Barack Obama 2.0s all across the country, Ms. Jarrett said. Hes very interested, through the Obama center, to promote civic engagement.
Ms. Jarrett recently sparked headlines for taking a $30,000 speaking fee from Northeastern Illinois University amid the schools financial troubles. Ms. Jarrett later said she would not accept the fee after knowing more about the situation.

I hope, with all my heart, that it was gut-wrenching, devastating, and is keeping her (and others like her) from sleeping at night, filling themselves with recriminations.
I can only hope...the more, the merrier.
Maybe she now knows that America had its gut wrenched for the 8 years of her and Obama.
If there hadn't been a public outcry, she would have happily pocketed the money without even so much as a thought. What a profound bottom feeder she is.
Roger that. Last time I saw any “gut wrenching”, it was William Wallace (Mel Gibson) and it pretty much killed him. Looks like gal pal val is doin’ just fine. So, maybe not so much “gut wrenching”.
Five months later, their tears are still just as delicious.
So’s her face.
Prison will be “gut-wrenching” also.
keyboard spew alert
I wonder if she is the live-in babysitter for the youngest one who had to go to school in DC. Mom and dad are gone. Who is watching the kid? Must be why she moved into the house.
Right now I’m pretty big on not seeing family dynasties in politics. Bush’s, Clintons, KENNEDYs. Minimize it.
You got that right.
THE NUMBER OF GOVT CHECKS VALERIE IS CASHING ARE ADDING UP
EVEN IN THE DC SWAMP Valerie Jarrett STILL Received
A $36K Annual Pension For Part-Time Chicago Transit job

Chicago is known for its L-train. But it's the gravy train that White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett prefers to ride.
In addition to the $173,922 Jarrett earns per annum as President Obama's senior adviser, she is also paid an annual pension of $35,660 for the eight years she served as chairman of the Chicago Transit Authority, according to a Chicago Sun Times investigation.
Jarrett was appointed to chairman of the agency - a part-time position - in 1995 by then-mayor Richard Daley, whose brother, William Daley, served as Obama's chief of staff. Jarrett served as the former mayor's deputy chief of staff and was appointed to numerous other positions during his term. (Excerpt) Read more at dailycaller.com ...
That one Chicago pension check is what she'll admit to. Wonder how many transportation bonds were issued while Jarrett was at Chicago Transit? Her pension payout would pale against her hidden income from lucrative insider Chicago bond deals.
In his final days in office:
<><> Obama appointed Valerie Jarrett and National Security Adviser Susan Rice to the Kennedy Center Board of Trustees
<><> Deputy Ntl Security Adviser Ben Rhodes was appointed to the tax-funded US Holocaust Memorial Council.
The Obamaminions can't live by do-goodism alone (smirk). We demand to know how many US govt checks this motley crew of incompetents hangers-on is cashing. (including US govt payroll and pension checks.)
Its an old political trick to pad pensions, and, hand-pick people and put them on govt payrolls long after you think they're gone.
The trio's vouchers for reimbursement would also prove enlightening.
Remember, Obama gave his MIL a 200,000 US govt pension for baby-sitting his kids. She must be on several payrolls, too.
Now, THAT is a reference I can go with!
I suppose we can thank Hillary for poisoning the well when it comes to public speaking fees at colleges. The sunshine that was cast on this form of graft will hopefully dry up these “honorariums”.
TRANSLATION: Get ready for another Clintonesque money machine.The Chicago criminals gonna do the Clinton Crime Family Hustle. They have no intentions of working for a living. The goal is get-rich-quick ala the Clintons.
EXCERPTED---In recent months, Clinton Foundation director, Donna Shalala, said foundation officials have offered advice for former President Obama and his wife, Michelle, on their own foundation, which will focus on national and international community building programs.
They called and asked some questions, Ms. Shalala said.

GET READY FOR ANOTHER POLITICAL MONEY-MAKING MACHINE ---The Obamas already have two Clintonesque get-rich-quick foundations (two that we know of)....the mission statements sounding suspiciously like the Clintons.
President Obama said, "the change we seek will take longer than one term or one presidency. Real changebig changetakes many years and requires each generation to embrace the obligations and opportunities that come with the title of Citizen. " (TRANSLATION: Me and Michelle want the money pouring in faster than we can spend it.)
FOUNDATION MISSION STATEMENT (cue laugh machine): The Obama Foundation will inspire the next generation of young leaders all over the world. It will convene the brightest minds with the newest ideas from across the political spectrum and draw strength from the rich diversity and vitality of Chicago, the city where the President and First Lady started a family and raised their daughters.
But most of all, the Foundation will ask all of us to take on big challenges and to believe that we can meet them together. Our history and President Obamas legacy give us hope that even the most difficult change is possible, and the Foundation exists to carry on that great, unfinished project of renewal and global progress.
Inform visitors about our civic rights and responsibilities and inspire citizens to get engaged.
Empower individuals who are leading change around the world, and help develop new ways to enable all citizens to take action.
Connect people from different communities and disciplines to create new approaches to solving our biggest challenges.
Translate new ideas into concrete actions that will have a measurable impact, enlisting partners across all sectors to scale what works.
PLEASE PASS THE BARF BAGS.
Pity it was not suicide invoking.
It was gut-wrenching for me too, as a patriotic American. I knew how close we were to the worst disaster in our history (probably far worse than 1861-1865), and I thought the outcome was close to a 50-50 coin toss, with only a slight edge for freedom.
100 days POST ELECTION. The Sleestack Bitch is dead !!
