A lot of people think it’s White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain who’s calling the shots in the Biden administration; it has to be somebody. After all, somebody’s always instructing President Biden which reporter to call on, and he always says he’s going to get in trouble with someone if he takes unscripted questions.
We know that Klain spends a lot of time on Twitter, because he does a lot of retweeting. Matt Whitlock caught him in the “royal flush” of retweets, retweeting MSNBC’s Joy Reid marveling at the “astounding human achievement” that was the bug-out from Afghanistan, in a reply to Jennifer Rubin being reminded of the end of “Schindler’s List.”

An absurd comparison for so many reasons. pic.twitter.com/6VGHB4WsBI

Twitter should flag tweets that were solely written to be retweeted by the White House Chief of Staff

Wait, did she just compare Biden to Oskar Schindler?

We gave Bidens list to the Taliban.

Comparable if Schindler had closed the factory and left for the US…

So the criminally incompetent are selling success to cover up the failure of truly galactic proportions. They have chutzpah, and as long as the voters are buying, that’s that.

How does Joy Reid get to be a major follow of Klain?
Does he really read her stuff?
Does the staffer who runs his account read her stuff?

But wait, there’s more: White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked about a scoop in the Washington Post that the Taliban offered control of Kabul to the U.S. military, but the military deferred and said the airport was fine. Psaki said she hadn’t heard about it.
.@PhilipWegmann: "The Washington Post reports that the Taliban offered to stay out of Kabul & let the United States forces secure the city. We told them that we only needed the airport. Is that reporting accurate?"
Psaki: "I have not seen this reporting. I have to look at it." pic.twitter.com/5lxmaSj8IU

Big news that Jen Psaki apparently doesn't read the Washington Post while the WHCOS retweets Jen Rubin 30 times a day.

Klain also retweeted Talking Points Memo’s Josh Marshall responding to the Washington Post article:
Is this White House confirmation of that @washingtonpost scoop?

Hey, @WHCOS, get off of Twitter and DO YOUR JOB

If his job is keeping the White House in order under Biden, he’s got a big job.
