Obama’s Deputy Chief of Staff Reveals Michelle Was the Real Boss and if She Got Mad, Oh Boy…

Alyssa Mastromonaco worked for President Obama early of 2005, when he was a senator, all they way until he made it to the White House.

Her job entailed planning foreign trips for Obama.

First she served as the White House director of scheduling and advance before she was then tasked with the role of deputy chief of staff for operations.

At only 34-years-old, she was the youngest woman to hold the position.

In an interview with The Times, Alyssa Mastromonaco shared how the at-the-time Illinois Senator once threatened to text one of Senator Tom Harkin’s staffers on her behalf when he saw him checking her out.

‘Obama turned to me and said, “Look, he was really into you. And if you don’t email him, I will.”,’ she penned in her book called Who Thought This Was a Good Idea?; which is about her time working for Obama.

Her thoughts on what the email may have looked like…

‘I can only imagine,’ the 41-year-old said in the interview.

While the then Senator Obama was busy playing cupid for his employee, once the family reached the White House our thoughts about who actually wore ‘the pants’ in the Barack, Michelle relationship have kind of been confirmed.

The staffer said ‘the true person in charge of the White House was first lady Michelle Obama,’ reported the Daily Mail.

‘She’s the boss,’ Mostromonaco said.

‘If he was mad at you for any reason, you’d be, like, “OK.” If she was mad at you . . . if you thought for some reason she might be, you were, like, “I’m in so much trouble.”‘

So, its confirmed. Michelle is every bit of mean as she looks.

Mastromonaco, ‘is now an executive at a television company.’ She served ‘six years in the White House where her hair turned white due to exhaustion,’ states the Daily mail.
