White House staffers and others may have feared the former First Lady Michelle Obama, ex-Obama aide says
Radar Online staff reports:
In an interview with The Times in England to promote her new book about working with Barack, his former Deputy Chief of Staff Alyssa Mastromonaco dished that the real person in charge of the White House was former First Lady Michelle.
“She’s the boss,” Mastromonaco recalled.
In a shocker, she elaborated on how Barack and Michelle differed: “If he was mad at you for any reason, you’d be, like, ‘OK.’ If she was mad at you . . . if you thought for some reason she might be, you were, like, ‘I’m in so much trouble.’ ”
The former White House Deputy Chief of Staff said in the interview that Barack had a friendly relationship with her, possibly because they weren’t too far apart in age. Mastromonaco was just 34 when she was working for him in the White House.
The former aide also claims that Obama had also offered her dating advice at one point while he was a Senator in Chicago.
