Embattled White House press aide resigns after public outcry

Imagine rising to the top of your profession and landing a coveted job in the White House, only to feel pressured to resign in a matter of weeks because of a silly scandal you created.

As Breitbart reported, that’s exactly what happened to President Joe Biden’s deputy press secretary, T.J. Ducklo. The young, up-and-coming White House press aide turned in his resignation over the weekend amid fallout from a situation in which he lobbed a nasty threat at a female Politico reporter. 

As is the case with many scandals, this one involved a relationship. On Biden’s inauguration day, Politico reporter Tara Palmeri placed a call to Axios reporter Alexi McCammond to inquire about details of her relationship with Ducklo.

That’s when the situation turned nasty, as Ducklo caught wind of the phone call and — much to his detriment — became enraged over the situation, eventually telling Palmeria that he would “destroy” her while also suggesting that Palmeri was “jealous” of the relationship between him and McCammond.

Ducklo never denied the story once it broke and he even issued a public apology to Palmeri in his Saturday resignation letter, admitting that he was in the wrong.

“I used language that no woman should ever have to hear from anyone, especially in a situation where she was just trying to do her job,” Ducklo wrote. He added that his behavior was “abhorrent, disrespectful, and unacceptable,” while expressing embarrassment for causing the situation in the first place.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki, his immediate supervisor, revealed that senior staff spoke with Ducklo on Saturday about the situation before he turned in his resignation.

“We are committed to striving every day to meet the standard set by the President in treating others with dignity and respect, with civility and with a value for others through our words and our actions,” Psaki wrote in a statement.

Reportedly, Politico editors and Palmeri received an apology from senior staff in the White House communications department along with a private, written apology from Ducklo.

  1. I just love how people love to sit back, down a beer while pissing and moaning over the crap going on today!

    WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) have had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose instead to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

    Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action?

    I strongly urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND a COMPLETE AUDIT AND INVESTIGATION into the 2020 ELECTIONS and for the IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

    BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! And they both (BIDEN & HARRIS) have family members putting them both in a CONCLICT of interest position advertising and promoting their businesses and using their VP and POTUS both as an advertising self-interest, self-promoting position and it is ILLEGAL!

    People should write these numbers down and use them frequently even if you don’t think your elected officials listen, they are required to note your comments for the permanent record in their caller database for anyone to see.

    One call per rep!

    Keep in mind: SILENCE = ACCEPTANCE

    1. Great idea and I will follow your advice. I do have to tell you that my two senators are rabid liberal democrats and my representative in the House is one of the ones who voted to have the president go through the impeachment. They are all useless and need to be replaced. We are working on getting a new person to run against the Representative from the House.

      1. Californias’ two Senators are Pelosi, and Feinstein, in a Democrat governed state. I feel your pain, but we are going to recall our worthless San Fransisco bred governor.

    2. I called my Rep and Richard Burr, Senator in NC and beat him up for voting against Trump in the 2nd stupid impeachment circus! I also told I him Biden and Harris should be impeached! Biden committed treason with Ukraine and China! I call them regularly! We all should!

    3. I like that idea very much! I have actually picked up the phone durimg this sham impeachment and called Mitch McConnell’s andLindsay Graham’s as well my local GOP’s and demanded that these Rhinos, traitors, closet Democrats be censured or remived from the Party.

      We really need to put this soviet style administration in it ‘s place and sort out this fraudulent election. This cannot be America, it resembles more some African tribe with a feathered chief dictating! .
      A warning, I believe that these people, the Democrats, will have their FBI, CIA, Secret Service go after us, individual people. As a German native, I feel we live in pre-war Hitler’s Germany and it’s Gestapo. what transpired in all of 2020 here, cities burning, police killed, no respect for anything and anybody, looked and felt just like mid to late Germany! And that is totally frightening!

    4. I wrote a letter to the Supreme Court SEVERAL months ago BEGGING for them to do their JOB & get involved with the FAKELECTION. All I ever received was an acknowledgment email say they would get back to me. Sure glad I didn’t keep sitting in same place waiting for them to get back to me let alone waiting for even one judge to develop a backbone & do what we should expect. This whole mess should be placed right at their door. My respect for all of them is GONE!

  2. Ducklo is a professional liar period ,remember he is the one saying Biden never said the shut down of flights from China was xenophobic and a bad idea ,and denied Biden said he was stopping fossil fuel production in an interview while Joe was knappy-time in the basement

    1. it would be hard to predict what a senile person will say next or what they remember/ the only thing your sure of is that he will sell us out to china / and split with hunter

      1. Look closely at the video of Biden signing those black folders. There is no writing on any page. I wonder what will be written or typed above his signature?

  3. They act like oh my an indiscretion when it appears to be almost everyone in the “biden” creepy circle have only been taught by their boss who is creepy Joe Biden. He still puts his hands on women and then that idiot Psaki says they are respecting each other as the “president” tells them. HA! Thats a joke. The whole administration looks and talks like a bunch of 1st graders on the playground running around asking what they shou4ld play with next. Disgusting! They are all being punished for their cheating ways in more than each other.

    1. Oh yes, and since there is this little thing that they did to Trump by trying to take him down after he left the office, I think we should also go for Obama and about 15% of the top echelon of the FBI and DOJ! Lets clean house, once and for all!

      1. We need to remove EVERY democrat in Washington, before they destroy our country. Polosi had guts over Trump’s wall but builds one around her home, the capital band anywhere she might be. They throw all of us under the bus but protects their butts

  4. Jdavis951 you are absolutely right. As long as we do nothing the Democrats will destroy this country. Biden and Harris both should be impeached based on what the Democrats think is wrong doing. I have called my Senator and Representative and told them how I feel.

  5. Harris should the the first to be impeached, we don’t need her as President! If Pelosi takes her place, i9mpeach her also! Then go for Joe.

  6. Nancy needs to go first then start going down the list . So many traitors and in positions that are dangerous for the USA.

  7. This all sounds well and good, but remember the demonrats OWN IT ALL AT THE MOMENT,CROOKED ELECTION OR NOT IT IS WHAT IT IS!!

  8. Don’t give in to the people who would steal our national heritage and our quality of life. The more people they can drum out of voter decision-making, the fewer people they have to convince to support their anti-American agenda.
    First, we were right when we started tuning out their media indoctrination tactics. We don’t have to listen to them. But they do have to listen to us. Second, write up a simple letter that states the 3-5 things that we believe in and support, like American jobs, strong borders, education of the American values of God, family and community, a strong military for nat’l defense, not for globalist expansion or nation building, and one person, one vote. No more mail-in ballots. If they can support us in these things, they will have our vote. If not, our vote will find someone who does support our values. Third, make a list of your elected officials, get their addresses, emails, faxes, and send a letter to them regularly, at least quarterly, if not monthly. Our voice will be heard, and eventually their bad conduct will be altered, or we will replace them. And follow through… monthly, like paying your bills. Send this Congressional letter, regularly…without fail.
    There is no stronger force in America than a motivated voter. Don’t let them rob us of our power. Be responsible, and follow through, even when things are going our way. Politicians are like children, they need constant reminders. It is up to us to Follow through, continuously.

  9. An aid, that means nothing. The Dems aren’t going to resign because they love to spew hate, discontent, division amongst the races, and destroy what millions and millions of people died for to make our country the greatest nation on earth. We won’t see that now or maybe never if the Dems are in control.

  10. ONLY 5 Weeks Have Gone By and There’s Already Resignation !!! But NOT a Word About It In The FAKE NEWS !!! Yet…When Pres Trump Started to Get His Resigners, FAKE NEWS WAS ALL OVER IT !!!
