[아시아경제 뉴욕=백종민 특파원] The White House public affairs team boasting of US President Joe Biden’s use of a large number of women became controversial. The confusion of the White House during the days of former President Donald Trump was also reenacted in Biden’s White House.

In particular, voices of criticism are growing against the behavior of the White House spokesman and the secretary’s office, who, contrary to President Biden’s policy, tried to end the punishment of a cotton bat. The’West Wing’, where the White House secretary’s office works, left only painful results that did not change significantly even if the regime changed.

On the 13th (local time), a spokesman for the White House, TJ Duclaw, announced his resignation. After one month of inauguration, it came down from the place everyone wanted.

Resignation itself is a hot topic, but the process of resigning is more problematic.

The beginning was an article about Valentine’s Day and that the Deputy Spokesman Ducklo reported by People Magazine and the reporter of Internet media Axios became lovers.

The article said that the deputy spokesman The Claw became a partner with a reporter who also entered the camp while in charge of public relations at Biden camp last year.

People said that even though Duclaw was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2019, he joined Biden’s campaign and even got a lover.

According to the article, reporter Axios informed the company that he had become a partner with the person in charge of entry and exit, and arranged traffic by acting as vice president candidate Camela Harris instead of Biden’s then candidate. In particular, reporter Axios emphasized that The Claw did not share any information after the start of the relationship.

In fact, the relationship between the president-elect camp reporter and the public affairs officer has been clarified on the part that may be concerned about a business conflict.

After this report, other internet media, Politico, began to emerge. Politico announced that it had requested the facts from the deputy spokesman Ducklo just before the report after finishing coverage on the issue, which was known as “public secret,” shortly after Duclo’s appointment as deputy spokesman at the end of January.

Politico’s dissatisfaction was that a high-ranking White House official crushed his inquiries and tried to get rid of it by spilling it into other media and turning it into a secret story. People did not disclose how this article was covered.

Politico even informed the article that the article would be published a day later on the 8th when there was no response from The Claw and the White House, but immediately after that, another media had to watch the exclusive report of the article glorifying the relationship between the two.

At this point, I think it may be, but the close drama’Season 2’begins here.

This time, the fact that the deputy spokesman The Claw threatened reporter Politico to block the article broke out at the entertainment media Banner Tea Fair.

Reportedly, Deputy Spokesman Ducklo made violent and feminine remarks, such as “I will destroy you” in a phone call with a reporter Politico.

Before President Biden took office, the situation in which the White House public affairs team consisted of all women and was highly praised has been completely distorted.

Eventually, White House spokesman Jen Saki had to reveal that during a regular briefing on the 12th, Deputy spokesman Ducklo had been suspended for a week for threatening reporters. Saki explained that Deputy Spokesman Ducklo was found to have threatened an exciter from the political media Politico who reported on her private life.

Saki added that White House Secretary General Ron Klein approved his discipline and did not consult with President Joe Biden.

Saki said, “The Deputy Spokesman The Klaw apologized to the reporter and sent a personal apology to him, saying he deeply regretted it.”

The actions of the White House Gazette further amplified the resentment of reporters entering the White House. This is because the White House public affairs team did not keep the promises made by the president on his first day in office.

On the first day of his inauguration, President Biden strongly warned White House officials that “I’m not kidding, if I act inappropriately to my colleagues, I will be expelled immediately.”

Saki did not answer the question why he was not fired. Instead, he said, “It doesn’t meet the president’s standards, but I think enough measures have been taken, including unpaid honesty and apology.”

A spokesman for Saki explained the background of the move through his Twitter, but did not get consensus. Conservative media as well as liberal media such as the Washington Post also posted columns and criticisms questioning the White House’s actions.

The close drama’Season 3’ended with the resignation of the deputy spokesperson The Claw. He unveiled his resignation via Twitter a day after Saki’s one-week announcement of suspension.

He said that no excuses were meaningless and decided to resign after discussion with the White House public affairs team.

It is dominant that the White House spokesman’s office suffered a significant blow. It is said that the work that would have been done quickly and decisively was consistent with’covering my family’, but it was wrong.

One White House reporter claimed that Ducklo’s “crime” was worse than former White House spokesman Anthony Skaramuchi, who resigned after ten days of controversy during the Trump administration.

The fact that this incident took place before President’s Day on the 15th left a deeper wound on the behavior of the White House.
