The time has finally come for the Biden administration to say goodbye to White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki. For some time now, Psaki has been somewhat of the frontline to President Joe Biden as reporters like Fox News’ Peter Doocy hurled questions surrounding COVID-19, the Southern border crisis, inflation, gas prices, and the laptop of Hunter Biden. With each press conference, Psaki appeared to do her best at presenting both the Democrats and Amtrak Joe as confident leaders. But on Friday, Psaki will officially leave her duties at the White House.
Sitting down with CSPAN to discuss her time within the Biden administration and her role at the White House, Psaki said that many Americans aren’t necessarily worried about inflation or gas prices, but instead about one of the top Democrat agendas- COVID-19. That’s right, in the video below, Psaki claimed, “You know, I live in a suburban community outside of Washington DC as many people do. When I have conversations with people on the street, it’s not about where the reconciliation bill is, you know, even in Northern Virginia, it is about are we wearing masks? Are we not wearing masks? When are kids vaccines going to be available? Is our health really at risk? What’s going to happen with the court?”
It should be noted that wearing masks, the supposed vaccine, and even the hysteria surrounding Roe v. Wade have all been major pushes by the Democrats and the Biden administration. And now, it just so happens that the majority of people who hang around Psaki share the same beliefs and opinions as the White House.
Speaking on the downside of being the Press Secretary to President Biden, Psaki admitted, “I will say the thing that has been hardest personally is I’ve had threats. I have had nasty letters, texts to me with my personal address, the names of my children. It crosses lines, and that’s when it becomes a little scary. And that has been the most personally difficult aspect of this job.”
As for her relationship with Doocy, the Press Secretary noted she will miss him as they had “a very good, professional relationship. And I understand that he’s coming there to ask questions every day that are important to report and the outlet he works for and I respect that and we have healthy debates and discussions,” she continued. “Doesn’t mean I agree with his line of questioning on most days. But I think that’s — I’ve called on him every day he’s been there or a Fox person, Jacqui [Heinrich], who’s been there a lot as well.”
Set to take over for Psaki is Karine Jean-Pierre, who will be both the first openly gay and black person to serve as Press Secretary.
