Psaki suggests she may resign from role as White House press secretary as soon as next year

Since President Joe Biden first took office this past January, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has been among the most visible members of his administration. But it seems she’s not looking to stay in the spotlight for long.

According to Breitbart’s Charlie Spiering, Psaki said in a recent interview with fellow Obama administration alumnus David Axelrod that she may make an exit from her role as White House press secretary as soon as next year.

“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 the podcast host, Spiering reported.

Eyeing an exit

Psaki went on to explain that she had only agreed to serve as Biden’s press secretary for a year. Previously, Psaki worked on the communications team for former President Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign, and then went on to work in the Obama White House.

Whereas Axelrod operated as a senior adviser to the former president, Psaki got her start as a State Department spokesperson under Obama before becoming White House communications director, Breitbart said.

Although Psaki was said to have been in the running to replace former Obama Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, she said she was relieved that former journalist Jay Carney was ultimately chosen instead.

“Always a bridesmaid”

“I remember thinking, thank God I didn’t get that job because I would not have been ready at that moment,” Psaki remarked during her interview with Axelrod, according to Breitbart.

Psaki also recalled being passed over to replace Carney in 2014, when Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest was promoted to the role, instead. Psaki said she was “devastated” by it.

“Between now and then, I’m sort of like always a bridesmaid and finally a bride,” she opined this week.

That’s not all

Psaki’s interview with Axelrod also made headlines for the press secretary’s comment that it’s “maddening” to hear so many questions about President Joe Biden’s failure to visit the U.S.–Mexico border when there are other problems, like COVID-19, that she feels are more pressing to everyday Americans.

“What percentage of the public is focused on the border?” she asked, according to a separate report from Breitbart. “A much smaller percentage than who’s focused on the pandemic and the economy. So that may be maddening, but, you know, that’s what we try to do.”

  1. well at least she is getting the heck out before the BAM hits the fan. thank you to every sick person who voted for him to be president? you all wanted Trump replaced and now your stuck with him for 3.5 more messed up years?????

    1. Agreed; we’re screwed. Thanks to all you illiterate (that’s practically ALL of you) Biden voters.

      The only consolation; you’re stuck as well.

    2. That is a good think for her to leave, she is very incompetent just like the rest of this administration!
      Thanks to all you sick persons who voted for him, because all you wanted was to replace Trump who was doing a great job for our country and its citizens. You all took exception to his tweets, his personality instead of judging him for his policies!
      We are stuck with this moron for 3.5 years which is Obamas’s 3.0 term. We are being ruled by Obama, who gives Rice and her sidekick the policies and procedures and they tell Beijing Biden what to say ! I knew this long before any of you mainstream midgets ever figured it out!

      1. I agree. Were all in this h### together. I am scared the US will not be like it was. All we can do is pray. An pray hard.

    3. There are more problems, like cover than the boarder. What this lovely young lady meant to say was we need these illegals to throw more sh,t in the game, to gain votes, to screw the american public while I continue to speread lies about covid, biden supposedly helping the american economy and worker. My job is to mislead you idiots that follow us. That is too easy too. You can’t fix stupid and that is what you followers are.
      Ok so I got the nice young lady a bit wrong. It should have been tratiorous, lying, bi, no cu, no can’t get away with those words, ok traitor who only cares about her own pocket but in the end, no matter which way this goes she will be a useless stupid pawn, oh my name, who will be disgarded like any usless piece of junk. Oh, that is what she is. I want to have a comfy chair, some popcorn, and watch the show.

    4. Trump was never groomed as a politician he was a business man and a very good one at that. He had some arrogance about himself but he wanted what was best for our wonderful country and the people couldn’t see that. He had our nation in better shape than it had been in years and here comes along some people that didn’t like his personality and what do they do but vote to put a man in the White House that wants to ruin our country and turn us into a communist country. Sorry people you did this to yourselves but you know what God is still in charge and I am waiting just to see what’s coming next because I don’t belief God is finished with America yet. Pray and then pray some more.

  3. She’s probably had enough of covering for Biden’s gaffes and out and out incompetence. How long can you go on lying for demented Joe!

  4. Well i think we the people need to take a unified stand and demand to make it right to us the AMERICAN VOTERS who without a doubt voted Trump for president. Tell me how can democrats just take it upon themselves to move forward knowing they cheated the votes after the republicans were sent home..they changed votes in the wee wicked hours of the morning. Plus LEGISLATORS HAS NEVER APPROVED BIDEN AS USA PRESIDENT! They know there was cheating from the left. Wth are they not stepping forward? Furthermore why doesn’t the Republicans grow some backbone and a voice and defend what’s right!!??? I hear more from Marjorie Green, desantis, and Texas Governor than i have from anyone else. What’s going on??

  5. I cannot blame HER! I would have left a long time ago.She is SMART.Who wants to repeat all the lies? GOD bless her!

  6. Michael Saunders, U.S. Army S.F. veteran of the Vietnam war and 23 years in law enforcement says:

    Psaki should have never been to press secretary for any body. She dose not know what is going on and she don’t know how to answer and any kind of questions about any thing. She lies most of the time about everything.

  7. Our Father is the Only Prayer We have! Our Federal Government is so Corrupt and on a Path of Distsruction! It will be almost impossible for American Citizens to ever feel any sort of Normalcy. I truly believe We will Never Recover from what the Demolishcrats and the “Puppet Master’s” have done to This Country! EVER!

  8. well door ,knob, split ya ,crack etc. etc. etc. hope the tax payers don’t have to fund another knob

  9. Why wait Psaki, your performance at best is minimal and the WH won’t stand behind you….The DNC boat is in bad shape and if they lose their engine, the boat won’t be able to pump all that bilge overboard….
