Ducklo Bullying Shows White House Callous Attitude Towards Women

This is how you act when you believe you’re bullet proof. – Biden Deputy Press Secretary T.J. Ducklo became the subject of a bullying scandal on Friday when it was revealed he he had threatened a Politico reporter, Tara Palmeri, when she questioned him about an affair he had been conducting with a reporter for Axios.  It seems that the White House press corps is just a swirling soap opera of sexual shenanigans.

You didn’t have to worry about these things during the Trump administration, since everyone hated one another. But in a Democrat administration, they’re all trying to get each other into bed. And Ducklo thinks he can get away with this kind of behavior because his bosses will have his back.

Sadly, he’s pretty much right, given that his immediate boss, Jen Psaki circled back to him with just a one-week suspension.

From the story at Vanity Fair:

AWhite House official tried to quash a story about his relationship with a reporter by issuing threats and using derogatory language to another reporter pursuing it, according to two sources familiar with the incident. In a sympathetic profile Monday, People revealed that White House Deputy Press Secretary TJ Ducklo is dating Axios political reporter Alexi McCammond, who covered the Joe Biden campaign. But behind the scenes, Ducklo had previously lashed out at Politico reporter Tara Palmeri, who was reporting the story, exhibiting behavior that led to tense meetings between the Washington news outlet’s editors and senior White House officials.

After Vanity Fair published this account, the White House announced that Ducklo would be suspended for one week.

The confrontation began on Inauguration Day, January 20, after Palmeri, a coauthor of Politico’s Playbook, contacted McCammond for comment while one of her male colleagues left a message for Ducklo, according to the sources. Ducklo subsequently called a Playbook editor to object to the story, but was told to call the Playbook reporters with his concerns. But instead of calling the male reporter who initially contacted him, Ducklo tried to intimidate Palmeri by phone in an effort to kill the story. “I will destroy you,” Ducklo told her, according to the sources, adding that he would ruin her reputation if she published it.

During the off-the-record call, Ducklo made derogatory and misogynistic comments, accusing Palmeri of only reporting on his relationship—which, due to the ethics questions that factor into the relationship between a journalist and White House official, falls under the purview of her reporting beat—because she was “jealous” that an unidentified man in the past had “wanted to fuck” McCammond “and not you.” Ducklo also accused Palmeri of being “jealous” of his relationship with McCammond. (Palmeri had no prior relationship or communication with McCammond before calling her to report on the Playbook item, which was a story that she was assigned and had not independently pursued.)


So, the guy gets a one-week suspension without pay from the White House for the act of bullying and threatening a female reporter, an infraction for which he’d be walked out of the building permanently by security in the real world. But hey, these are 21st century leftists who don’t really give a damn about women’s rights, as evidenced on their policies that discriminate against actual women in favor of men who “identify” as girls.

For more background on Mr. Ducklo, check out this story from the Washington Free Beacon:

Here’s an excerpt from the story:

Ducklo’s misogynistic outburst is even more problematic considering his history of employment. His role as Biden’s deputy press secretary is not the first time Ducklo has flacked for someone accused of sexual assault.

For example, Ducklo was the senior communications director for NBC News between 2018 and 2019, when the network was struggling to contain the fallout from the numerous sexual assault allegations leveled against disgraced daytime host Matt Lauer. Journalist Ronan Farrow has accused senior NBC News executives of turning a blind eye to Lauer’s predatory behavior and of actively thwarting his efforts to report on disgraced Democratic donor Harvey Weinstein’s history of misconduct.

Ducklo may or may not have interacted with Weinstein when he did communications for the Motion Picture Association of America from 2011 to 2014. He definitely hung out with the group’s chairman, former senator Chris Dodd (D., Conn.), who is best known for making a “waitress sandwich” with the late Ted Kennedy, among other forms of disreputable behavior toward women.

Dodd, who served on Biden’s vice presidential selection committee in 2020, was exceedingly reluctant to weigh in on the (in some cases criminal) allegations against Weinstein, whom he called a “friend” who was “very helpful to me as a candidate for Congress and as a senator over the years.” Anita Dunn, one of Ducklo’s colleagues in the Biden White House, went so far as to provide Weinstein with “damage control advice” as the disgraced producer sought to avoid being convicted on rape charges.


There’s much, much more. Go read the rest of it – you’ll be glad, and disgusted, that you did.

That is all.

So he resigned, to bad he did not do the most honorable thing. He is on ugly goober though. Looks much better with the mask on. Ugly on the surface and even more ugly underneath. A great combo.


“I will destroy you,” Ducklo told her, according to the sources, adding that he would ruin her reputation if she published it.”

Well, at least he got “suspended” for a week without pay. 

Without pay is something in that town, I know a week’s worth of pay is nothing especially when one considers how many weeks’ worth of pay a huge portion of the American people lost due to the CHINA virus and the mainly donkey governors and mayors. 

It is somewhat significant because virtually every government employee, including teachers when they illegally strike, never loses ANY pay or compensation when they are accused of almost anything or become ‘victims’ of a government shutdown, For the vast majority, it (suspension, strike or shutdown) is an unscheduled vacation WITH pay!

Anyway, Like with Hollywierd, I don’t really care who is doinking who as it is irrelevant, and It would not surprise me at all to see this kind of ‘had hitting’ “journalism” being in the forefront of most of the ‘news’ coming out of DC and the btfsplk administration – but nothing on Tara Reade as long as the powers-that-be want to keep btfsplk on the oval orifice. Sexual intrigue among minor players will dominate the news cycle with the real efforts by the administration to hurt America will be buried, sex stories about bit players will hide the administration’s anti-MAGA deals with Putin, Xi and Iran etc., and serve to keep the Hunter and the 0bamagate (special council Dungheap’s) “investigation” silent.

As soon the real power behind the porcelain throne upon which btfsplk sits want him gone, there will be expose after expose on his dalliances by such hard hitting ‘journalists’ who work for the fluff news organizations like Vanity Fair, People Magazine and Playboy and other hard hitting places like Politico and The Hill that no one sees, reads or cares about. We will know when they want btfsplk gone when the WAPO, NYT, DNCNN, PMSDNC et al start breathlessly ‘reporting’ on the “big guy’s” transgressions.

Like with every other person the Left props up as soon as their value (to them or their cause) is gone they will be schiff-canned. Surely “Dr. Jill” along with the fraud “Doctor” Fluki must know this, but they must not care as long as they do their part to hurt the country… Talk about mind-numbed robots.
