(Joshua Paladino, Headline USA) As President Joe Biden‘s agenda crumbles and his popularity hovers near its all-time low, Republicans and Democrast have told him to fire White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain, The Blaze reported.
Klain has reportedly pushed Biden’s executive and legislative priorities further to the left, which alienated Democrats, particularly Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, and caused the Build Back Better bill to fail in the Senate.
Klain then apparently helped craft the rude response to Manchin after he announced his opposition to the bill. The White House said Manchin’s opposition represents “a sudden and inexplicable reversal in his position, and a breach of his commitments.”
Sen. Mike Braun, R-Ind., told Biden to fire Klain, along with 18 other long-time aides, in a report on draining the swamp of permanent Washington D.C. apparatchiks.
Breyer had not yet intended to publicize his decision, and he said Klain’s leak caught him “blindsided.” This made the retirement announcement appear coordinated and partisan.
Klain also pushed for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration to mandate the COVID-19 vaccine for all workers in companies with more than 100 employees, but then his own blunder contributed to the unlawful regulation’s demise before the Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court cited Klain as proof that the Biden administration used the OSHA regulation to avoid having Congress approve a national workplace vaccine mandate.
Klain retweeted MSNBC Anchor Stephanie Ruhle’s tweet about the mandate’s purpose.
OSHA doing this vaxx mandate as an emergency workplace safety rule is the ultimate work-around for the Federal govt to require vaccinations.

Some of Klain’s own comments about the job’s demands suggest that he may bow out sooner rather than later.
“It is a grinding job, there’s no question about it,” he told the Washington Post. “It takes a lot of stamina to do it. So we’ll see how long it lasts.”
