Everything to Know about Valerie Jarrett, the Woman at the Center of Roseanne Barr’s Racist Tweets

Roseanne Barr’s eponymous ABC reboot was canceled after the comedienne’s racist tweet about former Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett sparked outrage

During Jarrett’s tenure in the Obama White House, she was described as Barack Obama’s greatest defender. She is also the only White House advisor known to have joined the president in his private residence following a day’s work.

“Her position is that during the day she is staff, and at night she is a friend, and she clearly delineates between those two roles,” Anita Dunn, a former White House communications director, who remains a close Jarrett friend, told The Washington Post in 2014.
