I am having major issues with the White House State Dinner crashers, Tareq and Michaele Salahi. The first description of Michaele Salahi referred to her as a "glittering blonde decked out in a red and gold sari" and I knew we were in trouble. Even at the White House, the automatic assumption about a "glittering blonde" is why of course she belongs! She looks the part, right? Unlike White House Social Secretary Desiree Rogers and White House Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett apparently.
They could barely get into the White House Correspondents Dinner last May without producing photo ID:
Uh, who are you Ms. Rogers and Ms. Jarrett?
They may be big deals, but White House insiders Valerie Jarrett and Desiree Rogers had a hard time getting into the White House Correspondents Dinner and POLITICO was there to catch it all on tape. The two were stopped by security and forced to reveal IDs to prove that, well, they're sorta big deals.
Too bad those security guards weren't on hand Wednesday night...
UPDATE: Apparently the interlopers did indeed get directly to the president. The White House released the photo below.
They should be in jail right now. YOU would be!
