Usually a presidential Chief of Staff is heard (by the President), but not seen. That’s supposed to be the way it is. That way, the President can get advice on what his/her most trusted advisor thinks about certain issues, but the President walks away as the person making the decision.
Ah, that’s not the case in the Biden administration!
Biden’s Chief of Staff, Ron Klain is apparently the person I was talking about a week or so ago when I wrote the blog, “So, Who Is Running The Country?” Turns out, it’s Ron Klain.
Never heard of him? That’s the way he wants it. He is the Biden puppet master who is masterminding when Biden talks to the press, what he says and doesn’t say, and he’s the guy that is apparently making a lot of the decisions that America is shaking their head over. The most recent Klain decision has pulled back the Wizard’s curtain to expose himself (not literally).
Economist, Jason Furman tweeted out that the whole supply chain/economy stall that we’re experiencing is “a high class problem”, meaning not that it’s super important, but that you and I, we minions, aren’t capable of understanding the nuances of it. Of course, Jason Furman is an idiot. What made the whole thing worse is that another idiot, Ron Klain, decided to retweet Furman’s comments:
“Most of the economic problems we’re facing (inflation, supply chains, etc.) are high class problems,” Furman said. “We wouldn’t have had them if the unemployment rate was still 10 percent. We would instead have had a much worse problem.”
So, Jen “Circle Back” Psaki was asked a question in a White House briefing session last week. Fox News reporter, Jacqui Heinrich asked, “Ron Klain retweeted a message…that inflation & supply chain issues are ‘high class issues,’ but some of the sharpest price increases…include products that every American buys. Why would [he] tweet that & would you agree that’s a little bit tone deaf?”
Psaki really didn’t have an answer. She said, “Do you think two tweets means more? I’m just curious. So I think the point here is, what some of these critics are saying is we don’t know if what they’re saying is if what they thought was great was when the unemployment rate was double what it is today. Or when people were locked in their homes and therefore gas prices were lower. We’re at this point because the unemployment rate has come down and been cut in half because people are buying more goods because people are traveling and because demand is up.”
It’s a very telling response. First of all, Psaki doesn’t apparently want to get in bad with Klain because she realizes he is running things. Second, she needed to temper the tweet to the point where you and I, we minions of low intelligence, didn’t think that this “high class problem” was so far above our pay grade that we’d never understand it. She failed.
And in the process of once again, failing at the podium, Circle Back Psaki showed us the truth, which always comes out by the way. She showed us just who IS running this country. Nope, I was wrong…it’s not the Chinese. Or at least not blatantly. It’s Ron Klain. He spouts something and it becomes policy just like that. We all knew that Joe “Brandon” Biden couldn’t be making this stuff up himself. He can’t finish a sentence on his own.
And so, America learns another dirty little secret of the left. A guy that is supposed to be advising the President of the United States on serious matters, is really the one running the country and setting the agenda because the President of the United States is too addle minded to do it himself.
You and I knew it all along. So much for “high class problems”. The highest class problem is getting rid of these guys!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
