Apparently, everybody’s upset today over Barry’s decision to let Bill Clinton take over the press conference they had together on Friday. Including Michelle, since he told everyone he was leaving because she wanted him at the Christmas party. Everyone else is just saying it made him look unpresidential – like he was turning over being President to Clinton or something!
A couple people heard Michelle say “Barack, you should never have turned that podium over to that pig!”
Btw, thought I saw Barry outside catching a smoke today!
Sorry gang – been unable to post these past few days.
Britney said the Prez is reeeeallly mad today. Said she was in Intern Bill’s office and they heard his loud voice saying, “It’s not going to happen!” and then a door slam. No one’s really sure what’s going on, but we think it has something to do with the press conference he just gave about tax cuts and the Republicans. Yikes!
Sorry but I was out sick yesterday (and was sick all weekend too!) I think all the dust from that warehouse got into my lungs. Yack! No more shredding for me!
Anyway, back today and the whole place is in chaos. Apparently it all started yesterday when A-Rod (Dave Axelrod) moved up his departure day. I guess that got Barry very upset. But today is reeeeally nuts because of the whole Korean thing… I guess Northern Korea shot a missile at South Korea or something.
Well, the good news is I finally got an interesting assignment out of all of it: “Research and write a short memo for the President’s Chief of Staff(!) on the history of the Korean war including which American President started it and whether it involved oil.”
Due tomorrow. On it!
The Prez is back today and in a bad mood. Apparently the foreign trip didn’t go so well. Michelle is on a rampage about something too. I can hear her barking orders all the way down the hall. From what I’ve heard, she and the Secret Service guys don’t get along too well. Anyway “Bill” the senior intern stopped by and told us to keep our heads down and look busy (even though we don’t have anything to do). So I guess I’ll just do the blog. Good thing my computer screen doesn’t face the door!
Got in kinda late today (feeling hung-over). Britney and I went out for drinks yesterday after work. (I had my own motives but got nothing, lol.) Anyway, that on top of all the champagne I had at lunch really did me in. But she can drink like a fish and it doesn’t seem to affect her one bit. Southern chicks! Lol.
Anyway, she gave me the rundown on why we’ve all been hired. I don’t know how she knows stuff but up until last week she interned for this congressman (who shall remain unnamed) who lost. I guess she overheard all these rumors. According to her, since last week’s losses, Barry’s team has made the call to shift things back to the WH. Everything’s gonna be run out of here now. Also, there’s gonna be some big shake up and heads are gonna roll when he gets back. So that’s why they wanted all these new bodies. All hands on deck I guess. We’ll see…
So… heading out to lunch now to get my new watch… Tag or Rolex? Hmm…
Had to get in real early today to get Michelle’s shoes to her assistant. The First Lady needs them for the India trip. ugh! hope I don’t have to do that again.
It’s crazy with everyone running around getting ready for this trip!
Btw, I thought I saw Obama for the first time this morning. Well, at least the back of his head. He’s got big ears!
Still haven’t seen Obama, but had a strange encounter with Biden in the hallway. He asked if I was one of the new “candy stripers.” Not sure what he meant by that.
Still waiting for my assignment.
Still waiting on my first assignment. I’m told it will come later today. Decided to wander the halls; nice furniture here. I guess there’s some kind of cabinet meeting going on –lots of press types here and there. Also lots of staffers scurrying around getting things ready for the President’s India trip tomorrow.
Think I’ll get some lunch.
