Jen Psaki’s final day as White House Press Secretary is May 13

by | May 13, 2022

 Jen Psaki had been White House press secretary less than two weeks when a reporter, states the AP, asked whether Twitter’s ban of Donald Trump had made President Joe Biden’s life easier.

“We don’t spend a lot of time talking about or thinking about President Trump here,” she responded, then added for emphasis: “Former President Trump.”

The AP adds that it was “an early indication of what was to come with this press secretary. Her briefings were professional and typically congenial, but could turn pointed in a hurry. The sessions were informative but generally lacked the drama to draw big ratings on cable television.

“Psaki, whose last day on the job is Friday, has answered reporters’ questions nearly every weekday of the almost 500 days that Biden has been in office. That makes her a top White House communicator and perhaps the administration’s most public face after only the president and Vice President Kamala Harris. Her departure could complicate how Biden’s message gets out at a critical time for him, at least in the short term.”

She will begin new global role with MSNBC as early as September, states Business Insider.

Succeeding Psaki is Karine Jean-Pierre, the first Black woman and openly LGBTQ person to be White House press secretary.
