A senior White House aide has stepped down after his vicious verbal attack on a reporter was revealed.
According to The Washington Free Beacon:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A White House press aide who repeatedly threatened a reporter working on a story about his romantic life resigned on Saturday.
Vanity Fair reported Friday that the aide, TJ Ducklo, told a reporter for Politico “I will destroy you” and made other crude remarks when asked to comment on a report that he was dating a Washington journalist. The White House initially suspended him without pay.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said in a statement Saturday that Ducklo had resigned.
Ducklo said in a statement posted on Twitter that “no words can express my regret, my embarrassment, and my disgust for my behavior.”
The scandal that would have been created if this occurred in the Trump administration would have been incredible.
