(PresidentialInsider.com)- After weeks of teasing, White House press secretary Jen Psaki announced last Thursday that she would be leaving her position on Friday, May 13.
Psaki will be replaced by one of the current deputy press secretaries, Karine Jean-Pierre who is being touted as another “historic” appointment by the Biden administration because Jean-Pierre is a black lesbian married to a CNN reporter.
Is she qualified? Who knows. But she’s historic!
In praising her successor on Twitter last week, Psaki described Jean-Pierre as “passionate,” “smart,” and having a “moral core.” Psaki said she looks forward to seeing Jean-Pierre “shine” when she brings “her own style, brilliance and grace to the podium.”
In a statement released by the White House on Thursday, the person writing on behalf of grandpa Joe thanked Psaki for “returning decency, respect and decorum to the White House Briefing Room.” The person posing as Biden added that Psaki raised the bar.
It has been reported that Psaki has accepted a position to join the Leftwing cable outlet, MSNBC.
Unlike Psaki, Jean-Pierre has developed a reputation of being overly cautious in press briefings, often telling reporters that she has no response to their questions.
Before she even begins, Jean-Pierre faces questions over previous tweets in which she claimed that both the 2016 presidential and the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial elections were “stolen.”
In April 2020 while working with the Biden election campaign, Jean-Pierre tweeted a link to a story at MSNBC, adding a “reminder” that Georgia Governor Brian Kemp “stole the gubernatorial election from Georgians and Stacey Abrams.”
In December 2016 tweet, Jean-Pierre accused “#unpresidented Trump” of stealing the election.
Americans have been reliably informed from the White House podium that questioning the results of an election is a threat to democracy and tantamount to “insurrection.”
But will anybody in the White House press corps challenge Jean-Pierre about her insurrection Big Lie tweets? That remains to be seen.
