Close employee Biden suspended for threatening journalist | Abroad

Ducklo is said to have told journalist Tara Palmeri in a telephone conversation that he would “destroy her.” Palmeri recently wrote about Ducklo’s relationship with Alexi McCammond, an Axios journalist.

According to Vanity Fair magazine, Ducklo would have made disparaging and misogynistic comments during the conversation with Palmeri. He is said to have said she was jealous of his relationship with McCammond.

Biden has often stated that he takes tough action against employees of his who belittle others. “If I hear that you are disrespecting or belittling someone, I will fire you on the spot,” Biden told his staff shortly after his inauguration.

According to Psaki, Ducklo knows he made a mistake and apologized to Palmeri. Ducklo no longer works with Politico reporters after his suspension.
