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.

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.

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.

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.

Members of the House

Members of the Senate


One call per rep!

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.

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.

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.
