White House under fire after failing to dismiss press aide that threatened Politico reporter
Joe Biden explicitly promised at the outset of his presidency that any staff members who displayed disrespect of their colleagues would be immediately fired. In mid-January, Biden announced that staffers and appointees would be dismissed with “no ifs, ands, or buts,” if they treated any of their colleagues with disrespect.
Apparently, reporters don’t count.
Earlier this week, it was revealed that top White House aide T.J. Ducklo was dating Axios reporter Alexi McCammond, which in itself created an ethics conflict that was swiftly covered up by the Biden administration
Politico reporter Tara Palmeri asked Ducklo — who is the current deputy White House press secretary — about the status of that relationship, he reportedly responded with “derogatory and misogynistic” comments. Ducklo reportedly threatened to “destroy” Palmeri in an off-the-record call on January 20 in an angry tirade that included unsavory, sexist remarks after she asked about the questionably ethical relationship.
The White House subsequently announced that Ducklo would be suspended for one week without pay — a move that many are criticizing as a mere “slap on the wrist.”
NOW THE LUNATICS ARE RUNNING THE ASYLUM IN WASHINGTON,DC.
