#45 sacked the usher?

My blogmates in the US might be able to cast a light on this almost last disgraceful act by #45 leaving President Biden and Mrs Biden killing a few seconds at the front door of the Whitehouse after his inauguration. True or untrue?

For one, there was no chief usher to greet the Bidens when they arrived. Although it is unclear exactly what caused the delay with the doors — which are normally opened by Marine guards — the chief usher of the White House, who manages the residence, had been fired less than five hours earlier.

Timothy Harleth, the Trumps’ chief usher and a former rooms manager of the Trump International Hotel in Washington, was busy moving furniture on Inauguration Day when he was told at 11:30 a.m. that his services were no longer needed, people familiar with the process said.

  1. If true it doesn't surprise me. But then no low act of his does.

    1. No EC. He never has surprised us as to how low he can go.

  2. I read about that man being put off - low act indeed.

  3. Compared to sexual abuse of women and insurrection, I suppose lack of graciousness is relatively less important. Why didn't his wife take charge?

    1. Hels, soon to become his ex wife, if it hasn't practically happened already. I agree with you. She could have left as a class act.

  4. Rumor around town has it, that a memo was circulated instructing all people hired or appointed by Trump to resign, and a few who didn't were fired. I had heard that the chief usher had left, but it was unclear who ordered it. Traditionally that is a job that stays on from administration to administration. (It is not a political appointment, it is a merit system hire.)

    1. Travel, yes you would hardly think those jobs required people to be party aligned for either side.

  5. Nothing has ever surprised me about the diabolic actions of this sub human species of excrement.

  7. It turns out that Timothy Harleth was hired by the Trumps and brought directly from the Trump International Hotel in Washington DC. From what I'm reading it was a decision made by Jill Biden. However it is also true that tRUMP was very angry that Harleth began to work with the incoming Biden team before he had conceded.

    1. Strayer, it seems you are correct.

  9. Yeah, like Debby, I read that the Bidens actually sacked the usher. But from what I understand it's not unusual for a new administration to bring in its own people for such roles, and since he came from the Trump hotel world I can understand why they might want someone else. (I feel kind of bad for the guy, though!)

    1. Steve, perhaps he wore his political colours as a #45 supporter on his sleeve.

  10. Trump is such a petty, little, man.
    If it's true the Bidens sacked the usher, why didn't they then install their own man to be there for the door opening at the right time.

    1. River, of course they would have, or whoever were looking after them would have.

  11. Interesting comments Andrew, sounds like the usher was heading out the door one way or another for sure 😉

    1. Yes Grace, it does, but it is so easy to blame the horrible and evil #45.
