Valerie Jarrett Asks For Donations To Obama Library Ahead Of His Martha’s Vineyard Birthday Bash

Former Obama staffer Valerie Jarrett is asking Americans to donate money to Obama’s presidential library, just days before he is about to hold a celebrity filled birthday bash at his mansion on Martha’s Vineyard.

Jarrett has a lot of nerve to make such a request.

Oprah Winfrey is expected to be at the party. Maybe she could cough up the needed cash.

Here’s Jarrett’s tweet:
