Did Jarrett give Governor Nixon the cease and desist order when it came time for the National Guard to do their job? Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz confirmed that Jarrett received “updates” from Nixon, “promising to stay in close touch” as the situation continued. No big surprise as the puppet master pulls the strings as always. Apparently the word went out not to talk to the Mayor as the Governor refused to talk to him.
“As you know, we’ve been working closely with them for the past few months leading up to this point to make sure that responses to this moment would be appropriate and constructive,” Schultz said.
Jarrett and Attorney General Eric Holder also spoke with civil rights leaders the first night of the protests, continuing their close coordination as the grand jury decision approached. (So THAT explains why there was rioting, arson, looting rampant after the Grand Jury verdict.)
“Valerie spoke to Governor Nixon both last night and this morning, and has been briefing the President on an ongoing basis since last night,” Schultz said, speaking to reporters on Air Force One. “And in each of those conversations with Governor Nixon, Valerie has pledged to stay in close coordination with the Governor in making sure that he’s getting the support he needs from the federal government.”
Schultz refused to say whether or not President Obama spoke on the phone with anyone about the protests sweeping the nation, but revealed that White House staff spoke with mayors across the country to coordinate a proper response.
Thanks, Obama, Jarrett, Schultz, and “civil rights leaders!!” Great job!!
