The unpopularity of the Biden Administration is increasing, and team members are continuously leaving and changing jobs and tasks, such as former White House press secretary Jen Psaki, who resigned last month to become a commentator for MSNB.
The significant turnover within the White House lends credence to rumors of unrest.
The White House also revealed last week that members of the press team would be leaving.
Assistant press secretary Vedant Patel is departing for a position as principal deputy spokesperson at the State Department, and press office chief of staff Amanda Finney is departing for a senior communications position at the Energy Department.
The media have taken notice of the continuing exits.
Conservative Brief says that earlier this week, several media sites criticized the administration with damaging stories claiming that the inner sanctum of the Biden White House is turbulent.
NBC News opened Tuesday morning with an article titled “Inside a Biden White House adrift,” which stated,“Amid a rolling series of calamities and sinking approval ratings, the president’s feeling lately is that he just can’t catch a break — and that angst is rippling through his party.”
“Faced with a worsening political predicament, President Joe Biden is pressing aides for a more compelling message and a sharper strategy while bristling at how they’ve tried to stifle the plain-speaking persona that has long been one of his most potent assets,” continued NBC News.
According to the source, “Biden is rattled by his sinking approval ratings and is looking to regain voters’ confidence that he can provide the sure-handed leadership he promised during the campaign, people close to the president say,”
NBC further reported that a number of crises have “piled up” to make “the Biden White House look unprepared,” including skyrocketing inflation, high gas costs, a COVID spike, and the recent horrific killings.

NBC News went on to report that shakeups in White House and administration staff were expected, including the possible departure of Biden’s chief of staff, Ron Klain.
A source close to the White House told NBC News, “He’s now lower than Trump, and he’s really twisted about it.” Read more…
