Former Biden Chief Of Staff Rolls His Eyes At Presidential Message

In leaked audio, for chief of staff to Joe Biden was caught slamming his former boss, calling his message ineffective and one suited more for a congressman than a president. 

Early in 2023, Ronald Klain jumped ship just as the Republicans took the House and investigations into the alleged corruption by the Biden Family had begun to take off. 

Klain was one of the more experienced leaders on the president’s team. CNN noted at the time that it was “difficult to overstate his intense involvement in every facet of major decisions made during Biden’s first two years as president. During the first half of the administration, deliberations big and small – and everything ranging from political to policy issues – would not only have Klain’s fingerprints but, most often, some level of his direct involvement.” 

No he’s watching the president’s reelection message and shaking his head.

Former White House chief of staff Ron Klain openly questioned President Joe Biden’s political strategy Tuesday night, arguing he was too focused on long-term infrastructure projects and not enough on immediate economic needs as he runs for reelection, Politico wrote.

“I think the president is out there too much talking about bridges,” Klain said, according to audio exclusively obtained by POLITICO. “He does two or three events a week where he’s cutting a ribbon on a bridge. And here’s a bridge. Like I tell you, if you go into the grocery store, you go to the grocery store and, you know, eggs and milk are expensive, the fact that there’s a fucking bridge is not [inaudible].”

“He’s not a congressman. He’s not running for Congress,” said Klain. “I think it’s kind of a fool’s errand. I think that [it] also doesn’t get covered that much because, look, it’s a fucking bridge. Like it’s a bridge, and how interesting is the bridge? It’s a little interesting but it’s not a lot interesting.”

In a follow up interview, Klain noted that elsewhere in Tuesday evening’s event, he expressed pride over Biden’s accomplishments. But he also did not back down from the main thrust of his critique, noting that it was incumbent on Biden and his campaign to turn the election into a debate about the future and not a referendum on what they’ve done.

One key problem facing Joe Biden is that even when he’s talking about bridges he can’t get it right. In the aftermath of the Fancis Scott Key Bridge collapse in Baltimore, the president was caught lying about how he used to travel over the bridge regularly. 

“At about 1:30 [a.m.], a container ship struck the Francis Scott Key Bridge, which I’ve been over many, many times commuting from the state of Delaware either on a train or by car,” Biden said in his first public remarks following the catastrophe. 

“I’ve been to Baltimore Harbor many times,” he added. “And the bridge collapsed, sending several people and vehicles into the water — into the river.” 

Biden has said that he has logged a million miles on Amtrak, hearing from Washington to Delaware during his decades as a senator. However, there were no train tracks that went over the bridge.  

Biden, the oldest-ever commander-in-chief, noted The New York Post, “has a decades-long propensity for embellishing personal stories. 

Several of his misstatements have been related to national disasters.

The president has falsely claimed that he was at Ground Zero the day after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks — when he states in his own book that he was in Washington, DC, on Sept. 12 — and he’s also erroneously said he ‘watched’ a Pittsburgh bridge collapse when in fact he visited the disaster site hours afterward.” 

It’s hard not to wonder if Klain’s uneasiness comes from the president’s faltering mental state. Is Biden sounding so much like a member of Congress because he thinks he’s running for Congress? 

This past January, Joe raised some eyebrows when he told a small group of small-business owners that he was a senator. 

“My name is Joe Biden. I work for the government in the Senate,” the president told voters in a coffee shop in Pennsylvania.

He had made the same mistake before.

“It’s not the first time Mr. Biden has appeared wistful for his Senate days. In 2020, while campaigning for president, he told a crowd that he was ‘a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate,’” wrote The Washington Times.

Biden last served in the Senate in 2009, shortly before being inaugurated as vice president to Barack Obama.
