Top Biden official says she SHOULDN'T have called Congressional Republicans 'f***ers' despite being backed over using f-word by Hillary Clinton

 President-elect Joe Biden's incoming deputy White House Chief of Staff Jen O'Malley Dillon said she probably could have used better words after referring to Congressional Republicans as 'f***ers' in a recent interview with Glamour. 

O'Malley Dillon, who served as Biden's 2020 campaign manager, said Thursday she 'used some words that I probably could have chosen better,' according to Politico

The walk-back comes as 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton tweeted in support of O'Malley Dillon's comments, while White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany criticized her for them Thursday afternoon.

O'Malley Dillon participated in an interview with Glennon Doyle, the wife of soccer star Abby Wambach and talked about how political compromise might work going forward. 

'I also think, as in love, compromise is a good thing,' O'Malley Dillon pointed out. 'The atmosphere in the world now is like, "Oh, if you compromise, you don't believe in something." No, it's: I believe in it so much that I'm going to work to find a path we can both go down together.'

'That feels to me like the heart of relationships and love and success across the board,' O'Malley Dillon added. 

Doyle suggested what the country is missing is 'redifining of compromise.'

'That is it or it can be the ultimate victory,' Doyle noted. 

That inspired O'Malley Dillon to recall how Biden was looked at during the Democratic primaries when he talked about his long record of working across the aisle. 

'In the primary, people would mock him, like, "You think you can work with Republicans?"' O'Malley Dillon recalled.         

'I’m not saying they’re not a bunch of f***ers,' she continued. 'Mitch McConnell is terrible.'

'But this sense that you couldn’t wish for that, you couldn’t wish for this bipartisan ideal? He rejected that. From start to finish, he set out with this idea that unity was possible, that together we are stronger, that we, as a country, need healing, and our politics needs that too,' O'Malley Dillon said of the president-elect. 

GOP critics pointed to O'Malley Dillon's comments as evidence Biden doesn't want to break bread with the GOP. 


'Biden talks about unity and healing, but you want to know what they really think? Read how the person he wants as the next WH deputy chief of staff called Republicans in Congress a bunch of f***ers,' tweeted Republican Sen. Marco Rubio on Wednesday.  

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, on her personal Twitter account, complained about O'Malley Dillon's comments on Thursday. 

'Biden Campaign Manager called us "F***ers" !!!' McEnany wrote. 'She can try to walk back, but this says volumes about her boss who calls for "unity" while shouting that we are "assaulting democracy." They think we are deplorable, irredeemable "F***ers". SICK!!'

Clinton, who had called Trump's supporters 'deplorables' back in 2016, wasn't having it.  

'People who stood by Donald Trump for the last four years are now claiming to be offended that a Democratic campaign manager used a curse word?' Clinton mused. 'I don't think so.'
