He’s losing his supporters left and right.
Joe Biden is losing deputy press secretary, T.J. Ducklo, after a scandal involving Ducklo was revealed.
Ducklo was revealed to have verbally abused a female reporter while they were talking over the phone. He wrote a resignation letter stating:
“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. 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.”
White House press secretary Jen Psaki also commented on his resignation by suspending his pay, preventing him from working with Politico reporters ever, and saying, “That’s not behavior that we will tolerate. So those were the steps that were taken, and we felt it was a serious punishment.”
