A new book by two New York Times reporters will land like a thud in the progressive wing of the Dem Party. Because two of Biden’s senior aides, White House Office of Public Engagement director and senior adviser Cedric Richmond, and Counselor to the President Steve Ricchetti, trashed members of the squad.
An excerpt of the new book, “This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future” by Alexander Burns and Jonathan Martin, was obtained by Fox News Digital.
Richmond had the harshest response to the political bungling by the Squad possibly because they went after him, or an associated group the Sunrise Movement did because he of ties to the oil and gas business.
In response, Richmond called Reps Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib “f*cking idiots” to a friend.
Steve Richetti has been around Joe Biden for a long time. His brother is a top lobbyist in Washington running the same game as the Podesta brothers did during the Clinton administration.
Even with all that money coming in to his family member, Richetti was still not happy and blasted the Squad telling a Biden ally that the “problem with the left is they don’t understand that they lost.”
Ouch. The book also claims Jill Biden is not over Kamala attacking her husband and wanted Joe to pick someone else.
Jill Biden was against Kamala. There are millions of people in the United States, why do we have to choose the one who attacked Joe,” she says in the book.
Ron Klain, White House chief of staff, says in the book: “Yes, Harris had attacked Biden more harshly than any other major candidate in the Democratic primaries.
“Yes, the Biden family had seen it as a smear and a betrayal.”
According to the book, Klain told Biden Harris should be the pick:
“Choosing Harris will show people that you are magnanimous and forgiving, It will show the country just what a unifying leader you can be.”
“Stacey Abrams fought hard to win real consideration but never overcame the experience issue” the book says about another possible pick.
“He asked me to sell him on vice president: ‘Why should you be the vice president?’” Lujan Grisham said Biden asked her during the vetting process.
“I didn’t ask to be vice president,” she told Biden.
“You asked for me to be vetted — you tell me why you think I would make a good vice president. This was not my idea.”
