The Obamas were in high-style for the wedding of Valerie Jarrett’s daughter. They took to their hometown of Chicago this week, dressed nicely and spending time with friends. Security was off the hook, of course. But that’s the price you pay for having the president at your wedding. The wedding appearance has the backdrop of doubt for the Obamas, after Roland Martin recently said that black leaders are not holding the president accountable.
Mr. and Mrs. Obama took some time off to head to Chicago this week to attend the wedding of the daughter of one of the president’s top aides. The wedding was for the daughter of Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett, a fancy gathering of many of Chicago’s black elite. Laura Jarrett was marrying her Harvard classmate, Tony Balkisson, according to local media reports.
Other guests to the wedding include: Attorney General Eric Holder, Ariel Investments chief executive John Rogers, Jr. and many others among the city’s wealthy black public figures.
