Tara Palmeri TJ Ducklo
According to an article published by The Vanity Fair, TJ Ducklo, the White House deputy press secretary, allegedly threatened Tara telling her “I will destroy you” and accused her of being motivated by romantic spite when she was assigned to write about a relationship he began with Alexi McCammond, an Axios reporter covering the Biden campaign and transition.
He allegedly told Tara he would ruin her reputation if Politico ran a piece about his relationship with Alexi.
During the off-the-record call, Ducklo made derogatory and misogynistic comments, accusing Palmeri of only reporting on his relationship because she was “jealous” that an unidentified man in the past had “wanted to fuck” McCammond “and not you.” Ducklo also accused Palmeri of being “jealous” of his relationship with McCammond.
On February 12, 2021 the White House press secretary Jen Psaki announced that TJ had been suspended for one week without pay.
“TJ Ducklo has apologized to the reporter, with whom he had a heated conversation about his personal life. He is the first to acknowledge this is not the standard of behavior set out by the President. In addition to his initial apology, he has sent the reporter a personal note expressing his profound regret. With the approval of the White House Chief of Staff, he has been placed on a one-week suspension without pay. In addition, when he returns, he will no longer be assigned to work with any reporters at Politico.”
