When it rains, it pours. Especially at the Biden White House.
On the same day Joe was hit with the news that even more classified documents were found in his Delaware home, this time in a Justice Department investigation, it became public that the rats are starting to jump ship.
Starting with his top man. From the Associated Press:
White House chief of staff Ron Klain, who has spent more than two years as President Joe Biden’s top aide, is preparing to leave his job in the coming weeks, according to a person familiar with Klain’s plans.
The White House did not return calls or emails seeking comment on Klain’s expected exit. Spending the weekend in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, Biden did not respond to shouted questions about when his chief of staff is expected to depart.
Now, it’s true that Ron Klain has stuck around for a long time, over two years. That’s actually longer than the average Chief of Staff. But when your most loyal man is readying the exits at the moment a political hurricane is hitting his boss, what does that tell you?
As Karine Jean-Pierre gets blindsided by questions on the Biden document scandal, apparently left in the dark, Ron Klain is leaving a legacy as the man who loved to retweet liberals.
This White House has been a mess, but somehow they have stayed afloat. Even the AP article tries to put a positive spin on Biden riding a strong political wave after staving off a red wave in the midterms.
Reality check? December was the highest border crossing number on record. Inflation numbers are not turning around well like they are hoping.
And worst of all, Biden is suffering a self-inflicted wound, possibly mortal, with GarageGate.
So don’t tell us that this is the right time for the Chief of Staff to leave. This looks like the Titanic, and Klain looks like the villain Cal fighting to get on the boats before the women and children.
It’s going to be a pleasure watching the White House self-destruct, as rumors swirl that KJP and Mayorkas may be thinking about doing the same. But we take no pleasure in the damage it will do to the country and its reputation. Hopefully Americans can finally choose someone to lead the country that is responsible and has our best interests at heart—and not his own.
- The Secret Service revealed it did have information on the people who visited Biden’s Delaware home.
- The White House previously claimed it did not have a list of these people.
- Biden has spent 40% of his time in office at this home, raising concerns about who he was entertaining.
