President Biden’s current press secretary, Jen Psaki says she has no problem going toe to toe with her predecessor Kayleigh McEnany.
The Hill reports:
On Tuesday, Fox News host Harris Faulkner announced that McEnany would be joining the “Fox family.” Later in the day, a reporter asked Psaki during the White House daily press briefing if she would be willing to sit down with McEnany for an interview.
“Sure,” Psaki replied. “I’ve done ‘Fox News Sunday’ twice now. I’m happy to go on a range of shows.”
Psaki added that she had interacted with McEnany in the past and that they were collegial toward each other despite their political differences.
“I will say that I knew [McEnany] a little bit, not well,” Psaki said. “I met her when we were both CNN contributors, and we did a few shows — I’m not sure how many — together. Like many Americans, we disagree on political issues, but we talked about our families, our spouses, sports, all sorts of things in the green room, and I certainly wish her the best in her future endeavors.”
Psaki will likely have to circle back regarding an interview with McEnany because there is no way she would be able to give her now-infamous non-answers to the veteran press secretary.
