WASHINGTON D.C. – President Barack Obamaâ€™s new Ebola Czar wonâ€™t start until Wednesday, even though the White House announced his new role on Friday.
Although Klain has visited the White House since his appointment, White House Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz confirmed that he did not attend the Ebola meeting on Saturday.
â€œIt is not that long of a lapse,â€ Shultz said, according to the pool report adding that â€œonboarding processâ€ for a government official takes weeks or months.
As Vice President Joe Bidenâ€™s former chief of staff, Klain is expected to have a speedier confirmation process.
Schultz also confirmed that Klain will not attend a Friday House Oversight hearing on the governmentâ€™s response to Ebola, although other administration officials will be attending.
Obama, now in Chicago for a series of speeches and fundraisers, is doing â€œa little bit of work from homeâ€ before returning to Washington, according to Schultz.
