What's Going On With This Photo In Valerie Jarrett's Office?

An NBC package over the weekend shows an odd display.

On NBC on Sunday, Meet the Press had a segment on Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett.

"Our Cynthia McFadden was granted unique access and spent a day behind the scenes with Valerie Jarrett at the White House," host David Gregory said introducing the segment.

We've reached out to the White House for comment.

Jarrett responded on Twitter, calling it a "gag gift."
