A top adviser to the president angrily fired back after a Democrat that wants to become one of the president’s senior staffers was caught swearing at Republicans.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany was gobsmacked after discovering Jen O’Malley Dillon, who Joe Biden picked to be his deputy chief of staff, called every GOP member a contemptible or stupid person.
“[Former] Biden campaign manager called us ‘[expletive’!!!]” McEnany said on Twitter.
The press secretary described the behavior as very annoying and disappointing.
“She can try to walk back but this says volumes about her boss who calls for ‘unity’ while shouting that we are ‘assaulting democracy,’ they think we are deplorable, irredeemable ‘[Expletive removed],'” she said. “Sick!!”
The remarks came after O’Malley Dillon vented her frustration with the Democratic Party’s failure to reach bipartisan agreements with the GOP.
“In the primary, people would mock him [Biden,] like, ‘You think you can work with Republicans?'” O’Malley Dillon told Glamour Magazine. “I am not saying they are not a bunch of [expletive removed]. Mitch McConnell is terrible.”
She also appeared to blame Republicans for refusing to let Democrats seize control and decide how to run the country.
“It is challenging for us to do that right now because of how polarized we are but politics breaks down to one-on-one conversations and not being afraid to talk,” she said. “I get that you are not supposed to talk politics at the holiday dinner. Well, [expletive removed] that. It is because we do not do that that we are in this situation now.”
These heated remarks also caught the attention of other mainstream media outlets and disgusted Politico reporter Alex Thompson.
“Incoming Biden White House Deputy Chief of Staff Omalley Dillon says she thinks big bipartisan deals are possible even though the Republicans are a ‘bunch of [expletive removed]’ and ‘Mitch McConnell is terrible,'” he said on Twitter.
Biden previously attacked Republican elected officials for exercising their constitutional right to scrutinize the November presidential race outcome.
Biden accused 126 Republican members of the Congress and 17 GOP attorneys general of trying to undermine democracy by supporting GOP Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s U.S. Supreme Court challenge to reject certified vote counts in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
“This legal maneuver was an effort … to wipe out the votes of more than 20 million Americans in other states and hand the presidency to a candidate who lost the Electoral College, popular vote and each and every one of the states,” he said in a video about the certification of his so-called Electoral College victory on YouTube. “It is a position so extreme we have never seen it before, a position that refused to respect the will of the people, law, and refused to honor our Constitution.”
