1. Damn

He just refused to resign like minutes ago. Glad Biden isn't suffering these fools well.

8. All of these people should have submitted their resignations months ago

The day after the 2016 election, President Obama's chief of staff sent a memo to every political appointee instructing them to submit their resignations within two weeks. And repeated reminders were sent to anyone who may have forgotten. That's how it's always been done.

Another example of Trump's and his crew's undignified obnoxious behavior.

33. My guess - the TrumpenFuhrer's minions had zero idea that was how it's always been done.

Why expect competence now???

10. Is there any appreciable difference between a resignation and a firing in these situations?

Pensions, civil service status, etc...?

If your name is on your desk you get resigned.

17. Yes and no

It is considered a resignation for many purposes where it makes a difference, but for the purpose of unemployment, it's considered an involuntary separation so political appointees can collect unemployment.

It really doesn't affect pensions, civil service status since terminations not for cause don't have any impact on those things - what matters is the amount of time served and the pay received.

20. Okay, this is AWESOME...

Wikipedia is already updated:

Peter Barr Robb (born January 24, 1948) is an American lawyer who was the former General Counsel of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). He was appointed to the position by President Donald Trump. He was fired by President Joe Biden on January 20, 2021 after refusing to resign.[3]

27. Some of these people don't deserve the opportunity to resign

The first thing they should see from Biden is a pink slip delivered by a security officer who will walk them to the door.
