On Wednesday, Joe Biden tapped former Obama administration official Ron Klain, a longtime political operative, to be his chief of staff. The move sparked immediate backlash as critics said that Klain had downplayed the coronavirus pandemic early on. “Klain was most recently a Senior Advisor to the Biden for President campaign and has previously served the president-elect in a number of roles including as his Chief of Staff when he became Vice President,” a press release from the Biden campaign said. “Klain is also known for his role as the White House Ebola Response Coordinator at the height of that public health crisis.”
