Trump fired the White House Chief Usher and left no one to open the door for the Bidens.

1 min read

A perfect story to encapsulate what an unfit dick Trump was.  Apparently, on his way out the door, Trump fired the White House Chief Usher — and sent all the staff home — so that no one was there to open the White House door when the Bidens arrived.

As one of their last acts during President Donald Trump’s tenure, the Trump team appears to have sacked the chief White House usher.

“It happened before we walked in the door,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters Friday when asked about the fate of Timothy Harleth, the former chief usher. Harleth, before his government work began in 2017, was a manager at the Trump International Hotel in Washington.

. . . .

“The Trumps sent the butlers home when they left so there would be no one to help the Bidens when they arrived,” one unnamed source, described as “a well-placed official not associated with the incoming Biden team,” told the latter publication.

The NYT reports that “Mark Meadows, the former White House chief of staff, was unhappy with [Chief Usher] Mr. Harleth for trying to send briefing books about the residence to the Biden transition team in November, people familiar with the process said.”
