Watch: Joe Biden's chief of staff cries over a rock as he says goodbye
Yesterday, Ron Klain delivered a heartfelt farewell speech marking his departure from the position of White House Chief of Staff. Klain delivered his address from the East Room, detailing the "best job" he ever had.
Towards the end of his remarks, he began to weep...over a rock. Yes, it really is as weird as it sounds.
\u201cRon Klain breaks down sobbing as he recalls being given a rock by a White House staffer:\n\n\u201cIt\u2019s always symbolized to me\u2026 that this team has been rock solid.\u201d\u201d— Addison Smith (@Addison Smith) 1675353000
Klain was explaining that the rock was his most treasured souvenir from his tenure in the White House. He said, "This plain and simple rock was given to me a year ago on one of our darker days — by Louisa Terrell [head of White House legislative affairs]. And it’s always symbolized to me the fact that this team has been rock solid in their support of our agenda and the president. We’ve never wavered. We’ve been as solid as a rock. And so I ask you today to continue to play that role. I ask each and every one of you to continue your jobs as the rock of this White House, this administration, and this presidency. That’s our mission.”
I cannot even fathom handing a coworker a small boulder as a present and uttering the words "we're solid as a rock." And I really can't fathom receiving said rock from a coworker and treasuring it for years to come. As opposed to the natural response, which would be to ask, "What am I supposed to do with this rock, Louisa?"
But there's something even more alarming about Klain's speech. Before the emotional moment with the rock, Klain claimed, "I learned everything I know about how to be a good father from Joe Biden. He’s the best father I know and the best role model I know.”
Yes, the same Joe Biden who allegedly took showers with his daughter and raised Hunter Biden. That Joe. He's the best father Klain knows. This makes me worried about Klain's state of mind. Even more than the weeping over the rock.
