White House under fire after failing to dismiss press aide that threatened Politico reporter

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.

However, when 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. 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.”

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.

Ducklo reportedly apologized to Palmeri and the White House attempted to shuffle the issue away. However, in confirming that Ducklo only received a short suspension and would no longer be permitted to work with Politico reporters despite his inappropriate outburst, a new controversy arose.

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.

CApparently, reporters don’t count.

Journalists of all stripes erupted in criticism of the move, pointing out the “repellent” language Ducklo used against their fellow reporter. The Daily Beast’s Justin Baragona noted that the suspension announcement directly contradicts Biden’s promise from just weeks ago.

Buzzfeed’s Josh Billinson snarked: “Well it’s a good thing his boss did not boldly declare three weeks ago that anyone in the administration who disrespects or talks down to others would be fired on the spot.”

Commentator Steve Krakaur pointed out: “So Ducklo is banned from working with any reporters at Politico, because of his misogynistic insults aimed at a Politico reporter, but he can still work with reporters at Axios, where his girlfriend is employed as a reporter covering the VP.”

After McCammond disclosed her relationship with Ducklo to Axios in November and was reassigned to covering Vice President Kamala Harris — though she still frequently covers the Biden administration as a whole.

  1. I don’t care about media. They cause their own problems. Put them a;; in a small room together and watch them eat their own kind.

    1. THE DEMOCRAT MANTRA: RULES ARE FOR THEE BUT NOT FOR ME. TOP TO BOTTOM IN THAT ADMINISTRATION TALK OUT OF BOTH SIDES OF THEIR MOUTHS AND BOTH SIDES ARE FULL OF HORSE PUCKY.

  2. Promises Made. Promises Broken Typical.
    They learn how to speak out of both sides of their mouth.
    Biden is a dead man walking …..”’ does he know he is President?.

    1. Probably not There are Harris / Pelosi/ Schumer/ AOC/ and Obama writing his scripts everyday …what a shame if an election .. it should be recalled …

    2. No, he doesn’t know he is President. He thinks and acts like he is a dictator. Per something he said himself. “Any President that has to do things by executive action, isn’t a President but a dictator” Look back on his running for President. Yet, he has written more executive actions in the last month, then any other President in the History of the U.S.

  3. When biden commits himself to the nut house I’ll believe some of these stories, all we ever see or hear is talk and more talk nothing ever happens and our country is going down the drain. Stop this sob. Before it’s too late ,WAKE UP AMERICA.

    1. He should be made to speak under oath if that is possible! I know how protected he and his cronies are. I hate what is being done to this country!

      1. Oath of office ……. you said? I thought Obama got rid of that Oat(h). First he erased the H then he gave the oat to the horse named Pelosi.

  4. Don’t know why ANYBODY would be surprised that Senile Joe LIED. He does that, pretty much any time he opens his mouth!

  5. Biden is breaking/ignoring all his other campaign promises so why not this one , too? Until his last day in office, President Trump was still trying to keep all his promises.

  6. 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.

Well here is something we all should be doing on a daily basis call these numbers & just read what JDavis has written other wise nothing is ever going to change we are the only ones reading our commits the Democrats aren’t they could care less! WAKE UP & START DOING SOMETHING BEFORE OUR COUNTRY IS GONE!

Inquiring minds want to know !!!!! NOT a duplicate VUUKLE PLEASE PUT MY POST BACK UP

  10.

Inquiring minds want to know !!!!! NOT a duplicate VUUKLE PLEASE PUT MY POST BACK UP not a duplicate vuukle , I am so tired of you people silencing my point of view

  11. They seem to llike to keep their newsbeats “TWISTED” because they are. HILARY Clit on is behind most of this. She opened up her pie hole again and made another statement about the Impeachment trial. She opens her mouth and tells on herself.

  12. Can’t TRUST anyone in the MEDIA! They are in the job to sell LIES! Can’t sell the TRUE! Just as it against their NARRATIVE to tell us about BLACK KILLING WHITES! But will jump to conclusions if it was the other way around! Don’t even tell us when it involves a Hispanic either! Soon or later they will kill one another for the HEADLINE!

  13. You all need help. A young couple meet, find a relationship ,announce it and pay the price. You people want to make mountains out of molehills. Yet, DJT incites a riot and that is fine. Grow up and get help. Trump liked the adulation and the pomp, Biden came to do the job.

    1. Also, Martin, I was gonna make a suggestion:
      try applying for a job in the WH , I’m sure they could find something really good for you and you would feel sooo good among them … they will love you and vice versa , good comrades!!

  14. WELL ! Here is another reason to “IMPEACH” Biden. He lies all the time about everything and the people of this country know that to be a fact. He should have neve been elected as the president of this country. The people of this country knows that the democrats lied and cheated and broke the laws of states and of this country to get him elected as president. Biden is the real illegitimate president. So he really needs to be impeached.

  15. When the so called “ leader of the country” is a pedo, pervert, liar, grifter and all around bad person, what do you expect? HE is going to lie his axx off to cover up all the underhanded behaviour he and his perpetrate! Impeach him !!!!!!

  16. Regardless who is president and if they fail in keeping campaign promises, change laws to sit themselves or whatever they do or fail to do while in office; of course we don’t like it. But I wonder how many have read or remember the Scripture that God puts people in charge and he takes the position from them, but it behooves everyone to remember that ALMIGHTY GOD HAS THE FINAL SAY. I am just saying.

  17. This how weak Biden is , he can’t fire a staffer, and if wants to run a country?
    He’s demented, weak, Old man He needs to be impeached,
    He has no business in government at all levels ,
    He killing America,
    Impeach him. NOW

  18. Hey Martin- Don’t you feel blessed to live in a country where you can be as blind, stupid, & one sided as you want? Here’s a nickel, go buy yourself a brain? Moron.

    1. are you sure? you may want to be nicer to Martin, as he is a rare one, not too many of his kind, not genuine like him. most are myths or in the grave. hey martin, how many times did you vote for Byedone?

  19. This sounds like something I heard before….”you can keep your doctor…” from the Obama regime. OH wait! Obama IS running the country again!!!

  20. Someone needs to reboot his brain. Oh excuse me, I forgot-there’s nothing up there anyway. He just says what’s on the teleprompter. No connection to his brain.

  21. Put Biden and his entire cabinet, put them all in a big box, and sink it in the middle of the ocean. They lie, they manipulate, they steal. There is a poll asking if “4 more years of Trump would ruin America” Most people will pick NO go to the next screen and the question becomes “Does Trump deserve 4 more years” You’d answer “YES” but how much do you want to bet the answer is recorded as YES to the first question if 4 more years of Trump would ruin America.
