The Bidens want people to think they’re a power couple. But now they’re shooting friendly fire.
And Jill Biden’s spokesman just betrayed Joe with one stunning exposé.
On Tuesday, a former spokesperson for First Lady Jill Biden blasted President Biden’s team for his deteriorating poll ratings, calling it “inexcusable” and telling Biden that he has to reform his team.
Michael LaRosa, a communications and political strategist who served as Jill Biden’s press secretary between January 2021 and August 2022, lashed out at Biden’s team in a three-part social media thread following the release of a CNN poll that showed former President Donald Trump with higher favorability ratings, among other barometers.
“New CNN Poll: Trump has higher favorables+Biden has higher unfavorable,” LaRosa wrote on X.
New CNN Poll: Trump has higher favorables+Biden has higher unfavorable. This is inexcusable for man universally known for his character+intregity. It's a result of failing to respond to smears, lies, conspiracies, and disinfo for months allowing a void of info to be filled (1/3)

“This is inexcusable for man universally known for his character+intregity. It’s a result of failing to respond to smears, lies, conspiracies, and disinfo for months allowing a void of info to be filled.”
“Shameful that POTUS’s team has allowed this narrative to congeal over the past two years,” LaRosa continued in the second part, which he has since deleted.
“The only people who can help change the people around [President Biden] is [Jill Biden]. It’s up to her. These are the same people who got him 4th in Iowa, 5th in [New Hampshire], and a distant 2nd to a socialist in [Nevada].”
LaRosa then demanded that Biden’s team be overhauled.
“I’ve been a squeaky wheel for months arguing this is the wrong approach to GOP attacks on Biden’s integrity, reputation, + family,” he said in a blog post.
“Poll after poll validates everything I’ve been saying+writing for months. Changing his team now will look like he actually cares+sees same [numbers] we do.”
LaRosa was referring to a CNN poll released Tuesday that showed both Trump and Biden suffering with favorability, although Trump outperformed Biden.
According to the poll, 38 percent of respondents like Trump, while 56 percent dislike him. In comparison, 36 percent regard Biden positively, while 59 percent view him negatively.
The CNN poll is the latest in a string of polls from various outlets that show Trump outperforming Biden far before the election, including in critical battleground states.
The former MSNBC producer, who now appears frequently on CNN, isn’t the only media figure to criticize Biden’s crew. Over the summer, MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski chastised his team for failing to prevent instances in which he falls or appears bewildered on stage.
Her monologue alluded to Biden’s public fall in June during a graduation ceremony at the United States Air Force Academy. According to the White House, Biden tripped over a sandbag on stage and was “doing 100% fine” afterwards.
“Yeah, I think his staff needs to own his age. I’m just going to be honest, I don’t think they do a good job helping out the president… Like, I’m just saying, if you are managing a president’s schedule, and you are managing a president getting on stage and getting off stage, and doing — getting on planes and getting off plane — and yes, he’s 80, you need to be there for him, and you need to make a pathway. And you sure as hell better make sure he doesn’t fall on a sandbag,” Brzezinski said.
When asked about the posts on X, formerly known as Twitter, a White House official responded, “Hope he’s okay.”
The Biden campaign did not reply quickly to a request for comment.
