Grab Some Popcorn: White House Hypocrisy Involving Verbal Abuse of a Reporter

TJ Ducklo

Deputy White House press secretary TJ Ducklo has been suspended for one week after he harassed and threatened a Politico reporter who was pursuing a story about his romantic involvement with another reporter.

Vanity Fair reported that Ducklo responded angrily during an off-the-record call with Politico's Tara Palmeri when she was reporting on his relationship with Alexi McCammond, an Axios reporter who met Ducklo while covering the Biden campaign.

“I will destroy you,” Ducklo reportedly told Palmeri on the call, during which he also made misogynistic comments and suggested she was "jealous" that an unidentified man was interested in McCammond and not her.

"TJ Ducklo has apologized to the reporter, with whom he had a heated conversation about his personal life. He is the first to acknowledge this is not the standard of behavior set out by the President," White House press secretary Jen Psaki said in a statement after the Vanity Fair report was published.

"In addition to his initial apology, he has sent the reporter a personal note expressing his profound regret. With the approval of the White House Chief of Staff, he has been placed on a one-week suspension without pay," she added. "In addition, when he returns, he will no longer be assigned to work with any reporters at Politico."

Here is the fun part, President Biden on his first day in office warned staffers and appointees that they would be expected to treat others with respect.

"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 said during a virtual swearing-in ceremony on Inauguration Day.

So a one-week suspension does not exactly meet the Biden claimed response to such matters.

Since this was a reporter, and a female one at that, the press has turned on the White House press secretary Psaki.

Check this out.


Bye, bye, TJ.

The Left always eats its own.
