Biden aides ‘tapped out’ as White House faces staff shake up

The White House has faced a slew of departures recently, with several top officials announcing at once they are moving on after 18 months in the administration during a time when President Biden’s job approval rating continues to sink amid consistently poor marks politically.


While 18 months in is typical for staff turnover in the White House, it comes at a perilous moment for Democrats ahead of crucial midterm elections.


“Given the complex challenges that the administration is facing, these departures are coming at an inopportune time,” said Democratic strategist Joel Payne.
