Perhaps it’s not too surprising that there’s less drama in the Biden administration, given that its predecessor was a literal reality TV star before becoming the political equivalent of one. Still, it is notable just how much less gossip is flying out of the West Wing these days, according to press secretary Jen Psaki.“There’s not a lot of Game of Thrones drama here, which feels like it may be a bit of ... a shift from the last four years,” Ms Psaki said a recent media conference hosted by the Financial Times. “The culture of this White House is...

Jen Psaki: I can't let the briefing room become 'a forum for propaganda'

New York (CNN Business) — The White House press briefing room will return to 100% capacity on Monday after 15 months of social distancing due to the coronavirus pandemic. It will be another step toward normality for President Joe Biden's press secretary Jen Psaki and the press corps — and a reminder of the renewed centrality of the daily briefing.

Joe Biden considers D-Day veterans ‘close to his heart’ despite silence, Jen Psaki says

White House press secretary Jen Psaki says World War II veterans should not consider silence by President Biden on D-Day as a slight on their service.

Kayleigh McEnany complains that Jen Psaki is getting more positive attention than she did

The last press secretary in the Trump White House, Kayleigh McEnany, complained on Fox News that her successor in the Biden administration, Jen Psaki, is getting much more positive media attention than she did. After it became clear that famed photographer Annie Leibovitz had visited the White House to photograph Ms Psaki, Ms McEnany noted that “instead of the glowing profiles” of her successor in the role, during her own tenure from April 2020 to January 2021, “there were hit pieces repeatedly, time and time again”. The co-host of Outnumbered said that it was “just so sad that...

Kayleigh McEnany Got Torched For Whining That Her Successor, Jen Psaki, Is Getting Better Press Coverage Than Her

Not many people liked any of Donald J. Trump’s four presidential press secretaries, but many agreed he saved the worst for last. Kayleigh McEnany went next level on all her predecessors’ many faults. She was rude, she was condescending, she was evasive, she was dishonest. And she did it all while the nation wrestled with a poorly handled, once-in-a-century public health crisis. Naturally she got a job at Fox News. And on Friday, that’s where she had a meltdown over the relatively great press her polite and competent successor has received.
