White House Is Collapsing, Biden Staffers Express Their Concern

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

Democrat Joe Biden ran as the most dope soul to Black Americans that the world has ever produced- and essentially Black voters responded favorably to him, for that, and voted enough to put Biden over the finish line in 2020 to become the resident of the White House- but Biden’s promises to serve the Black Community with their perfect utopia- has fallen apart and even the left is starting to realize that Biden was really never that into the Black Community- he just really, really needed the votes.

Now the consequences come for putting a man- who was in DC for 50 years and has a demonstrated racist background- into the land’s highest office. The consequences are that we get what we always got from good ole ‘Uncle Joe’- nothing but nonsense.

Even left leading Black media is being forced to acknowledge that Biden is not that cool after all.

Black Entertainment TV (BET) reported on the disaster that is spiraling out of control for Biden’s administration, and for Biden, the candidate who ran as the ‘great hope’ of Black America:

Upon assuming his tenure as president, Joe Biden promised that his staff would reflect the diversity of the nation and he did open the doors for people of all backgrounds to come in, but those doors for some have swung both ways. According to a new report, what some are claiming is normal and expected staff turnover as 20 Black staffers leave their White House jobs, others have dubbed the departure “Blaxit.”

In a report published by Politico, nine current and former White House staffers shared in interviews that despite some employees leaving on good terms and for family and other personal reasons, there is a climate that some other Black employees find discouraging.

The news website quoted an unnamed staffer as saying, “They brought in a ton of black people generally to start without ever establishing an infrastructure to retain them or help them be successful. If there is no clear infrastructure of how to be successful, you become just as invisible in this space than you would be if you were not in it.” `

Why did the Black community expect anything different? Someday they may learn to safeguard their voting power a little better.

Think about the timeline:

The first big exit came in December, when Kamala Harris’ senior adviser and chief spokesperson Symone Sanders announced she was leaving, ultimately for a gig at MSNBC. Since then, Harris senior aides Tina Flournoy, Ashley Etienne, Vincent Evans, and public engagement head Cedric Richmond have left.

Conservative Brief reported on other departures from the “cool Joe’ White House:

Public engagement aide Carissa Smith, gender policy aide Kalisha Dessources Figures, National Security Council senior director Linda Etim, digital engagement director Cameron Trimble, associate counsel Funmi Olorunnipa Badejo, chief of staff Ron Klain advisers Elizabeth Wilkins and Niyat Mulugheta, press assistant Natalie Austin, National Economic Council aides Joelle Gamble and Connor Maxwell, and presidential personnel aides Danielle Okai, Reggie Greer and Rayshawn Dyson have all departed too. Deputy White House counsel Danielle Conley and Council of Economic Advisers aide Sahara Griffin are among others planning to leave in the coming weeks, according to White House officials.

“I have heard about an exodus of Black staffers from the White House — ‘Blaxit’ — and I am concerned,” Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies President Spencer Overton, said. “Black voters accounted for 22 percent of President Biden’s voters in November 2020. It is essential that Black staffers are not only recruited to serve in senior, mid-level, and junior White House positions but are also included in major policy and personnel decisions and have opportunities for advancement.”

A White House staffer hit back at those claims and said that around 14 percent of the current White House staff identify as black.

“The president is incredibly proud to have built what continues to be the most diverse White House staff in history, and he is committed to continuing historic representation for Black staff and all communities,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said. “This is a normal time for turnover across the board in any administration and Black staff have been promoted at a higher rate than staff who are not diverse.”

And now sources are saying that White House chief of staff Ron Klain is set to leave the administration, Business Insider reported.

Citing multiple sources who spoke anonymously, NBC reports that one person heard Klain speaking of his potential departure. Klain worked as President Barack Obama’s White House Ebola response coordinator and also previously served as chief of staff to former vice president Al Gore. He also was chief of staff to then-Vice President Joe Biden during the first two years of the Obama administration.

If Klain leaves his role in the Biden White House, which he has held since the start of the administration, potential successors include Anita Dunn, who rejoined the White House earlier this month and has been part of the president’s inner circle for years.

And this week it was reported that President Biden is furious with his aides for running to the media to explain his comments again and again and finds it undermining.

White House Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates said to The Daily Wire that the reports of his frustrations are untrue and that “As we’ve said before, no clarifications of the President’s remarks are ever issued without his direct approval.”

But NBC originally reported:

Faced with a worsening political predicament, President Joe Biden is pressing aides for a more compelling message and a sharper strategy while bristling at how they’ve tried to stifle the plain-speaking persona that has long been one of his most potent assets.

Biden is rattled by his sinking approval ratings and is looking to regain voters’ confidence that he can provide the sure-handed leadership he promised during the campaign, people close to the president said.
