(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) The inner workings of the White House have been boiling over, with a fresh wave of chaos and infighting, as fingers are being pointed for a string of policy failures from the Biden administration that has left America reeling.
The initial news broke with reports of battles between President Joe Biden and his staff, once again forcing questions of who is actually in charge into the minds of the public, according to RedState.
One of the complaints was in regard to the president’s handlers constantly intervening and changing his statements; another focused on Biden’s general lack of knowledge about matters of state and self-inflicted crises that he and his staff refuse to acknowledge.
A report from CNN has brought more details to light, highlighting an extreme divide between older and younger members of the staff.
“That’s in between pointing fingers at each other for whose fault it is,” the report stated.
“They have the same internal meetings over and over, insisting that they need to change up their whole approach to how they’re using Biden—and then each time watch as nothing changes.”
The older staff is reportedly dismissive of the younger, who allegedly think of approval ratings in terms of social media likes. And, the younger staff, while being continually shut down by the older, claim they are constantly looked down upon for recommending trying something different.
CNN even discussed the contradictory actions of the White House staff—saying that Biden is answering the questions of journalists whenever asked, then rushing him away from appearances and denying interview requests to avoid having to clean up a mess.
It would seem Biden is not trusted by his own staff to answer any questions without fear of massive repercussions and hours of “clean-up” work.
The article does address Biden directly, though does not speak to any specifics and has no statement from the mess maker-in-chief.
According to the staff, Biden is still attempting to “calibrate himself to the office,” and wants to be the “more sympathetic, lovingly Onion-parody inspiring, aviator-wearing, vanilla chip cone-licking” sort of president.
“He has to speak to very serious things, and you can’t do that getting ice cream,” said one White House aide.
It was not reported whether or not the staffers came to a consensus, or if the infighting will simply continue.
