From her first day at the lectern, Democrats have loved Jen Psaki. After 4 years of Trump press conferences, Psaki brought back an air of competence and reliability. And her snarky retort towards Conservative report Peter Doocy frequently go viral.
Fox News’ Chris Wallace certainly knows a thing or two about press secretaries. He began working as a White House press correspondent back in the 1970’s. So it was quite a compliment when he called Psaki one of the best press secretaries ever.
Wallace made the comments while speaking with Sandra Smith. The host played a clip of Doocy and Psaki discussing Joe Biden’s recent trip to the border. He responded, “Honestly, as somebody who’s spent six years in the White House, my immediate reaction was those are two people at the top of their game.”
The Fox host first praised colleague Doocy, saying, “I mean this as a compliment. I think he has become the Sam Donaldson of this White House press corps. And since I was working in the press corps when Sam Donaldson was there, that’s a very grudging compliment on my part.”
Wallace then moved onto Psaki, noting, [she] is one of the best press secretaries ever. I don’t know that anything was particularly accomplished, but they both gave and got pretty good.”
