More Calamity At The White House Press Office Takes Another Massive Hit
Something is going on behind closed doors at the White House communications office and it’s only a matter of time before it goes public. The press won’t be able to resist either because it is going to be juicy.
The Biden administration is a hot mess and the White House communications office appears to be in chaos.
Staffers are leaving the communications department in droves (that is not hyperbole).
Redstate reported that “Assistant Press Secretary Vedant Patel (going to the State Department), Press Office Chief of Staff Amanda Finney (going to the Energy Department), and White House Rapid Response Director Mike Gwin (going to the Treasury Department)” are all leaving for other positions.
You can now add another departure to the list, deputy assistant secretary for Public Affairs Michael Gwin who was the White House’s “Rapid Response” head.
No wonder he’s leaving, I’d leave too.
During a press conference, Karine Jean-Pierre announce Gwin and Michael Kikukawa will be leaving the press office and headed to the Treasury Department.
“On a sad note, our dear friend and colleague Michael Gwin will be leaving us for Treasury, where he will serve as deputy assistant secretary for Public Affairs,” Jean-Pierre said. “Gwin has served as the White House director of Rapid Response for the past 16 months, responding to the most challenging and difficult issues imaginable. Yet amidst these often emotionally wrenching stories, Gwin’s poise and moral clarity are unfailing, and his willingness and ability to step up has made him an indispensable member of the team.”
“And joining Gwin at the Treasury Department will be our very own Michael Kikukawa, where he will serve as a spokesperson,” she continued. “Michael, better known here to all of you, to all of us, as Kiku, has served not just as a press assistant, but as the strong engine and reliable engine at the press shop. His relentless work ethic and dedication to the mission of this team have been second to none.”
Notice that everyone who’s leaving the communications office is taking positions that are not directly inside the White House.
Folks, it’s no wonder they are leaving, the boat is sinking. On the same day Treasury Secretary Yellen is telling the Senate that inflation is going to possibly get worse and gas prices will continue to rise the White House says everything is great.
🚨 Karine Jean-Pierre: “What we’re trying to say, what I’m trying to say to you, is that the economy is in a better place than it has been historically.”
