Biden spokeswoman Jen Psaki’s time on the White House press podium may be coming to an end sooner rather than later. During an interview with former Obama adviser David Axelrod, Psaki said she will likely leave the White House in “about a year from now.”
According to The Daily Wire:
“I think it’s going to be time for somebody else to have this job, in a year from now or about a year from now,” she told Axelrod, who is now a senior political commentator for CNN.
Psaki added that she wanted to make time in her schedule for her two young children as well.
“I don’t want to miss moments, I don’t want to miss things, and I’m very mindful of that as well,” she said. “It’s a great job, it will be hard [to leave], but I also never thought I’d be here, and I also love my kids a lot.”
Later in the interview, Psaki also admitted to routinely telling the president not to take off the cuff questions from reporters.
“In fact, a lot of times we say ‘Don’t take questions,’ you know, but he’s going to do what he wants to do because he’s the President of the United States,” she explained. “We’re never going to satisfy the White House press corps and their desires for access. And I think there have been mistakes made in the past of trying to do that.”
