A former top official for former President Barack Obama just raged against the Joe Biden machine in an epic tirade, calling out the president and his administration for going against one big thing Joe said he wouldn’t do, per a report on Daily Wire.
It was Walter Shaub, a former director of the office of Government Ethics, who called out Joe Biden and his administration after a report by the Washington Post exposed Biden aides for giving out “coveted jobs” – something Joe himself somewhat stated he wouldn’t do.
Joe Biden previously suggested he wouldn’t give government jobs to his children, but then Washington Post revealed that several of his aides had been handing out jobs like candy.
This frustrated Shaub and he turned his back on the Democrats, going against the grain of their nature to never criticize each other, and he absolutely blasted Biden and his administration.
Here’s what the Washington Post stated: “Although Biden has vowed not to hire his own family, in the first few months of his presidency, at least five children of his top aides have secured coveted jobs in the new administration.”
Shaub responded in the most anti-Joe Biden way he could: “I’m sorry, I know some folks don’t like hearing any criticism of him. But this royally sucks. I’m disgusted. A lot of us worked hard to tee him up to restore ethics to government and believed the promises. This is a a real “f-ck you” to us—and government ethics.”
Profanity and all, that’s when readers can tell someone is speaking from the top of their head and giving an honest emotion.
Shaub continued: “Pathetic! The responses from people who spent 4 years complaining the other side was putting party over country are pathetic. They sound just like MAGAs. The jobs went to privileged kiddos with mommies & daddies who cozied up to POTUS. Nepotism is illegal.”
Shaub illustrates that people spent four years complaining about former President Donald Trump giving jobs to people, but now they’re basically silent as the Democrats do the same thing.
He goes further, using all caps and more profanity to express his anger: “EVEN THE F-ING HEAD OF PRESIDENTIAL PERSONNEL, WHO IS SUPPOSED TO BE KEEPING THEM HONEST, HAS A CHILD WHO’S A RECENT COLLEGE GRAD WORKING IN THE ADMINISTRATION. AND THE SPOUSE OF THE WHITE HOUSE CHIEF OF STAFF, FOR CRYING OUT LOUD. This is ridiculous. What a f-cking failure.”
And it just keeps going (everything in quotes below is from Shaub’s Twitter rant against Biden)…
“When little problems like this, which are so damn easy to avoid, crop up, it’s a sign of much bigger rot. Because if you can’t even do the easy things, you sure as hell can’t do the hard things.
“The White House’s defense that they had the minimum qualifications is total BS. The issue isn’t whether they were qualified (some weren’t). It’s that a WH that promised diversity is giving these privileged white kids with connected mommies and daddies prime jobs over others!”
“And all the whataboutism from tweeps defending this total BS is just giving fuel to the next corrupt authoritarian like Trump who wins the White House to say “if even Biden was fine with nepotism in his administration, I can do anything.”
“So what if WH claims the parents weren’t involved. I’m sure some wink-nudged this. But I’m even more sure they didn’t HAVE TO be. The head of Presidential Personnel knew the score. If you believe this is a coincidence, I have a bridge to sell you. I have 3 bridges to sell you.”
“Do I sound bitter? HELL, YEAH, I’M BITTER! I’m the stupid moron who fell for his false promises. I wasn’t naive enough to think he’d be a transformative president. He told us he’d be plain vanilla. But I thought there was momentum behind his ethics promises. Boy was I stupid.”
“Take his much touted “golden parachute payment” ban. Exciting, right? Turns out, it only applies if the payment is expressly for going into the UNITED STATES government. If the payor says “I’m giving this to you because you’re going into govt,” they can keep it!”
“In two decades of govt ethics, I’ve only ONCE seen a payment for going in to the U.S. govt. But I’ve seen plenty offered for going into govt. And the people who drafted this sham prohibition new no one would ever offer a payment expressly for going into the U.S. govt.”
“And it only bans CASH or something substituting for an agreed upon payment. It does NOT ban an employer saying, we normally make folks forfeit unvested stock options, but we’ll let you keep your millions in options because you’re going in the US govt.” THAT’S ALLOWED!”
“Or howabout this? Biden’s ethics pledge bans appointees working on matters involving former employers and clients. This month, the administration quietly issued guidance saying it doesn’t apply to clients that paid for speeches!!!! Yellen, for instance, made $7 million that way.”
“The guidance also quietly said it doesn’t apply if a news channel paid you to appear on TV. You can work directly with them. But remember how made we were when the Trump admin gave waivers to former Fox News personalities? Welp, here we go again.”
“And I don’t love having a milk lobbyist running USDA or a “strategic advisor” (i.e., shadow lobbyist) running the State Department. Or the brother of Biden’s top WH advisor lobbying the Executive Office of the President through a firm the Biden appointee founded.”
“I miss the days when Obama appointed Norm Eisen to be his ethics Czar. Biden chose not to do that. Surely, he could have found someone like Norm–only this time maybe someone not white and male for a change–to champion ethics in this admin. But here we are with problems already.”
“We’ve got a Raytheon board member leading DOD. We’ve got private equity fund people in the WH and at State. You’ve got corporate execs and big firm lawyers who represent corporations throughout. And personnel is policy.”
“Is he better than Trump? Yes. But all that says is that he’s better than a straight up crook. That CANNOT be the standard for ethics. Is he doing some things right? Yes. Absolutely. He’s doing great with the pandemic and he’s starting to rebuild alliances. Thank goodness.”
“But authoritarianism & corruption go hand in hand. If we don’t clean up govt, we’re setting the table for the next authoritarian. Speaking of which, Biden’s administration is fighting tooth & nail to stop Congressional oversight—not just of this admin but of the Trump admin too!”
“I’ve never seen anything so feeble as the admin’s lackluster support of HR1. Yes, odds are long for voting rights in the Senate & state legislatures. But a transformational leader could move that needle. Biden’s ethics plan spoke extensively of legislation he said he’d “enact.”
“But he hasn’t even proposed any!!! And the window almost certainly closes in November 2022. Yeah yeah, folks say it’s only be five months give him time. I’d love to give him all the time in the world. But legislation takes time and the reality is that the window is closing.”
“So, yeah. I’m disappointed. I’m angry. I supported this guy. I provided help to the campaign and the transition because I believed ethics was going to be a priority. Well, it isn’t even in the top 100 things the administration cares about.”
Schaub found a way to express disinterest in Trump, but spent more time dismantling Joe Biden and his administration. Shaub appears to be very disappointed in Biden, but I guess that’s what you get for voting on the person instead of the policies.
Leftists don’t like Trump, but if you put the policies on paper in front of them and don’t say who they belong to, there’s a very high chance they would pick Trump every time.
Anyone with common sense would support the common sense policies.
But of course, the leftists just didn’t like Trump’s mean tweets, because Trump doesn’t put up with the nonsense and no one controls Trump – that’s why Democrats and a handful of RINO Republicans couldn’t handle him.
It’s also the same reason Trump needs to be back in the White House so he can clean up the Biden/Harris disaster that’s making a complete mess of our beloved America.
