Donald Trump’s press secretaries during his time in office were Sean Spicer, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Stephanie Grisham (who never held a presser) and Kayleigh McEnany. They were crude, aggressive and, at best, loose with the truth.
Jen Psaki, who has been with Joe Biden from day one, has been a breath of fresh air. While she can sometimes be snarky, he press secretary takes questions from reporters of all stripes. Her time, though, is soon o come to an end.
According to a report from Axios, Psaki will soon leave the White House and begin working for MSNBC. Sara Fischer writes, “Psaki has been in close consultation with the White House counsel’s office about her departure, according to two sources familiar with the plans. She’s been treading carefully on the ethics and legal aspects of her plans.”
The author also notes that Psaki was being courted by both CNN and MSNBC.
Psaki certainly wouldn’t be the first press secretary to take a position within the cable-news industry. Nicolle Wallace, one of MSNBC’s biggest stars, once handled the press for George W. Bush. Dana Perino, who also works for Bush, has been a long-time anchor on the Fox News network.
