This Isn't Normal

The Daily Mail (U.K.) reports former White House aide Valerie Jarrett - said to have lived in the White House - has now moved into the Obama home in the Kalorama section of DC. According to the reportage, she is there to help the Obamas do political sabotage to the Trump administration.

Am I the only one who thinks the relationship she has with Barack and Michelle Obama is very strange? I mean, I get close aides and chiefs of staff being around most of the time, but really ... live in? Why live in?

What normal married couple wants an outsider living in their house? Even a live-in mother-in-law is uncomfortable, more often than not.

I wonder what scandal-mongers will make of this arrangement, with the cool distance of history? Menage a trois or something less savory? A Svengali, perhaps. Hat tip to for the link.
