Biden Taps Controversial Official To Join His White House Staff

Biden’s Latest White House Hire Is Raising Eyebrows

( – Over the last 18 months, President Joe Biden has nominated several controversial far-left officials to his cabinet, some of whom the Democratic-led Senate rejected. On Wednesday, June 15, Biden named another controversial Democrat to help him shape their agenda and narrative ahead of the 2022 midterm elections. The president announced he hired former Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms to replace senior aide Cedric Richmond.

Bottoms will serve as the Senior Advisor for Public Engagement. The former mayor will have instant access to the president and West Wing high-level planning and strategy sessions in her position. The Office of Public Engagement’s purpose is to interact with the public at the local, state, and national levels about the president’s agenda. The hiring comes ahead of what many political analysts believe will be a shellacking of Democrats by Republicans in November.

Bottoms has a complicated history as Mayor of Atlanta. In the summer of 2020, during the BLM protests and riots, Bottoms supported activists’ calls to defund the police and engaged with them on reimagining public safety. As crime spiked in her city a year later, the former mayor changed her view and opposed calls by the city council to deprive the police department of as much as $73 million. Still, instead of seeking the solution to crime, she blamed Georgia Republican Gov. Brian Kemp for the exploding problem instead of her soft-on-crime policies.
