Cutter’s reasoning: Because there is one woman, Valerie Jarrett.
Via Washington Examiner:
Stephanie Cutter, deputy campaign manager for President Obama’s 2012 reelection bid, said that The New York Times’ coverage of the “all male look” of his inner circle is misleading.
“That picture is not reflective of what actually happens,” Cutter said on Morning Joe when shown a picture of the president with his closest advisers (ten men, plus Valerie Jarrett’s leg) [seen above -ed.]. “There are plenty of women in the president’s inner circle.”
Cutter mentioned Jarrett — whom The New York Times described in September as “the other power in the West Wing” — and Obama’s two deputy chiefs of staff, Nancy-Ann DeParle and Alyssa Mastromonaco to demonstrate the prominence of women in the White House.
