Biden loves to make his grand promises. It’s keeping them that’s the hard part.
Whether it’s the promise about opening schools in the first hundred days, or that none of his family members would have foreign business entanglements or this latest promise that the Ducklo situation demonstrated was meaningless, Joe Biden has already demonstrated a real problem with delivering on his promises.
He loves to claim the moral high ground and make grand statements. Just don’t expect him to ACT on any of those grand statements when the rubber hits the road.
Here was Biden on his first day in office.
“I’m not joking when I say this: If you’re ever working with me and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect or talk down to someone, I promise you, I will fire you on the spot — on the spot. No ifs ands or buts,” Biden told the staffers, talking to a large video screen
“Everybody is entitled to be treated with decency and dignity. That’s been missing in a big way the last four years.”
Biden added, “We’re going to be judged whether or not we restored the integrity and competency this government I need your help badly.” — NYPost
He can’t resist getting a dig in against his predecessor, can he? Notice the message here. ‘I am the good guy, POTUS45 is the bad guy.’
It didn’t take long to put Biden’s claims of moral superiority to the test.
A journalist started asking uncomfortable questions about potential conflicts of interest between a WH staffer, and a journalist.
White House deputy press secretary TJ Ducklo allegedly threatened to “destroy” Politico reporter Tara Palmeri for investigating his relationship with a journalist — before telling her she was just bitter that someone didn’t want to have sex with her, according to a new report.
… Palmeri, a former New York Post reporter and co-author of Politico’s popular “Playbook” newsletter, was working on the story of Ducklo’s then-secret romance with Axios reporter Alexi McCammond. A male journalist at Politico asked Ducklo for comment, while Palmeri reached out to McCammond, according to the report.
Instead of replying to the male journalist, Ducklo, 32, called Palmeri and said, “I will destroy you” if she moved ahead with the reporting, according to Vanity Fair.
He then claimed Palmeri was “jealous” that a different man had “wanted to f–k” McCammond “and not you.” —NYPost
When it came to be public knowledge, was he ‘fired on the spot’? Of course not. He was (eventually) given a slap on the wrist.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Friday that Ducklo’s conduct was “completely unacceptable.” Psaki said while she had not spoken about the incident with President Joe Biden, Ducklo and aides “at the highest levels” of the White House’s communications team had apologized for the incident.
“No one wants anyone to feel uncomfortable, to be put in an uncomfortable position,” Psaki said.
Psaki said in a statement earlier Friday that Ducklo had been suspended without pay with the approval of White House chief of staff Ron Klain. She said Ducklo “is the first to acknowledge this is not the standard of behavior set out” by Biden, and that Ducklo had sent the reporter in question “a personal note professing his profound regret.” —AP
The blowback for Biden’s hypocrisy did not take long.
The White House has been accused of hypocrisy after Jen Psaki said a one-week suspension was ‘serious punishment’ for TJ Ducklo for threatening to ‘destroy’ a reporter – despite Joe Biden vowing to fire ‘on the spot’ any aides that ‘disrespect’ other people.
White House Press Secretary Psaki defended her decision to suspend the deputy press secretary for one week without pay during Friday’s press briefing insisting it was an ‘important step’ to show his behavior was ‘completely unacceptable’.
…The incident took place on Inauguration Day but did not come to light until this week.
The White House is coming under fire of its handling of the matter, which took place on the very day that the president issued his ‘no tolerance’ warning to staff.
There are also questions over why Ducklo has only been suspended now his behavior has been made public and was not reprimanded at the time. –DailyMail
We didn’t have to wait long for the backpedaling.
His statement reads:
“No words can express my regret, my embarrassment, and my disgust for my behavior. 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. It was language that was abhorrent, disprespectful, and unacceptable.
I am devastated to have embarrassed and disappointed my White House colleagues and President Biden, and after a discussion with White House communications leadership tonight, I resigned my position and will not be returning from administrative leave.
I know this was terrible. I know I can’t take it back. But I also know I can learn from it and do better. This incident is not representative of who I am as a person, and I will be determined to earn back the trust of everyone I have let down because of my intolerable actions.
Do you notice what’s missing from this story?
If it was buried, then he was suspended, and then he spoke with communications leadership who convinced him to resign, that can only mean one thing.
Joe Biden did not ‘fire him on the spot’.
More importantly, Biden had no intention of doing so had circumstances not forced his hand. He’s a suit as empty as his promises.
For all his tough talk about taking Trump behind the gym, when push comes to shove, he’s only a pretend tough guy. The real deal looks quite a bit different.

Much of the Left loathes masculinity and they love to paint Jesus as a non-offensive bearded woman who endorses their agenda. This book blows that nonsense all to hell. From the stonking laptop of bestselling author, Doug Giles, comes a new book that focuses on Jesus’ overt masculine traits like no other books have heretofore. It’s informative, bold, hilarious, and scary. Giles has concluded, after many years of scouring the scripture that, If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive.
