Don’t have fun and drink beer when it’s hot outside, Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett said on Friday.

Jarrett offered the advice during an organized Twitter chat aimed at advancing a Nanny State initiative called “Beat the Heat.”

In the chat, Jarrett and other government officials offered common sense tips on how to avoid suffering heat stroke.

“All across our country there’s a heat wave,” Jarrett wrote at the beginning of the chat. “Let’s discuss how to keep safe.”

Twitter user @Mi_Astronauta offered advice that would appeal to most Americans.

“Grab some beers and hit the pool,” Mi_Astronauta wrote.

But the fun-hating Jarrett had another suggestion.

Jarrett, a longtime friend of Obama’s and one of his closest advisers, offered other tips on how to prevent heat stroke, including not leaving the house and sitting under air conditioning.
