A key scientific advisor to President Joe Biden has resigned for bullying and “disrespectful” and “demeaning” behavior to his staff and colleagues. 

Dr. Eric Lander, a former member of President Biden’s Cabinet who served as director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), resigned Monday evening after an internal White House investigation found credible evidence he had spoken harshly and disrespectfully to colleagues in front of other colleagues.

“I am devastated that I caused hurt to past and present colleagues by the way in which I have spoken to them,” Lander wrote in his letter of resignation. “But it is clear that things I said, and the way I said them, crossed the line at times into being disrespectful and demeaning to both men and women. That was never my intention. Nonetheless, it is my fault and my responsibility. I will take this lesson forward. I believe it is not possible to continue effectively in my role, and the work of this office is far too important to be hindered.”

Lander had earlier apologized to his staff for speaking to them in a “disrespectful and demeaning way,” according to emails obtained by the press.

“The president accepted Dr. Eric Lander’s resignation letter this evening with gratitude for his work at OSTP on the pandemic, the Cancer Moonshot, climate change, and other key priorities,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said in a statement. “He knows that Dr. Lander will continue to make important contributions to the scientific community in the years ahead.”

Prior to releasing the statement, Psaki had deflected questions from the White Hours press corps regarding why Lander had not been fired, given Biden’s promise on his first day in office to immediately fire anyone who treats colleagues disrespectfully.

“If you are ever working with me and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you I will fire you on the spot. On the spot. No ifs, ands, or buts,” Biden said.

  1. Buyden is a big, OLD, pussy and didn’t even remember what he had said! COME ON MAN!! 😂😂😂

  2. Biden talks down to the citizens of America every time he speaks, yelling and snearing. He has always been a stupid man. I have not had respect for him ever since he got hair plugs,LOL! Truthfully, I have never respected him.

  3. Who ever don’t see what’s going on don’t have common sense, it’s all about who pays the most and they have no idea what will happen to to US when these people start controlling us meaning there money wouldn’t mean anything to keep them from being controlled by the government. Don’t let money destroy our country

  4. There seems to be an over abundance of know-it-all bullies in Biden’s cabinet. Why am I not surprised?
