Biden’s White House staff is falling apart and some are getting outta of there before they are tied to Joe Biden’s presidency forever.

White House Communications Chief of Staff Emma Riley has announced she is jumping ship.

“It was an honor and privilege to serve @POTUS and the American people at the @WhiteHouse. I’m excited to be moving down Pennsylvania Ave and traveling around the country with [Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh] and [the U.S. Department of Labor],” Riley tweeted.

Previously Riley was the deputy communication director, regional communications director and press secretary for the Biden 2020 presidential campaign.

Riley’s announcement followed the confirmation that Kamala Harris’ communication director, Ashley Etienne is leaving as well.

“Ashley is a valued member of the vice president’s team, who has worked tirelessly to advance the goals of this administration,” a White House official said in a statement. “She is leaving the office in December to pursue other opportunities.”

The resignations follow reports that Biden and Harris are not getting along. Leaks from inside both camps highlight dysfunction and backstabbing.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki claimed that Biden believes Kamala is a “key partner.”

“The President selected the vice president because—to serve as his running mate—because he felt she was exactly the person he wanted to have by his side to govern the country,” Psaki said.

House Democratic Whip Rep. Jame Clyburn denied that staffers are jumping ship over turmoil.

“I’m always concerned when I read headlines that are not complimentary … but headlines are headlines,” he said. “People leave jobs all the time. I’ve been a part of transitions myself at the state level. And I know that within the first several months—sometimes it takes a year—that people may find out this is not exactly for me. So these things tend to happen.”

The resignations follow both Biden and Kamala’s approval numbers at historic lows.
