White House announces more press team staff changes

Two more White House press team members are leaving as the staff lineup continues to change.

White House press secretary Karin Jean-Pierre announced the changes on Tuesday.

Two more this week

“On a sad note, our dear friend and colleague Michael Gwin will be leaving us for Treasury, where he will serve as deputy assistant secretary for public affairs,” Jean-Pierre said.

“Gwin has served as the White House director of rapid response for the past 16 months, responding to the most challenging and difficult issues imaginable. Yet amid these often emotionally wrenching stories, Gwin’s poise and moral clarity are unfailing, and his willingness and ability to step up has made him an indispensable member of the team,” she added.

A Blaxit break?

Some have suggested a Blaxit (Black exit) of Biden’s White House staff, as several of his departures have been among Black staff members.

But it’s not just Black staff members who are leaving. Even Biden’s chief of staff, Ron Klain, is rumored to potentially be leaving his role after the November midterms.

While some may be leaving for other opportunities, it appears the mass departures are attempts to abandon what is being seen as a losing team.

Even former White House press secretary Jen Psaki has already left. She reportedly plans to lead a new MSNBC show.

The staffing problems have been a major concern during the short time Biden has been in office, further complicating his already difficult list of growing problems facing the nation.
