In a development that should surprise absolutely no one, White House press secretary Jen Psaki is leaving her position this spring to take an on-air position at MSNBC.
In other words, she will be doing the same job at a different location.
The far left network will be a perfect home for her.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki plans to leave for an on-air role at MSNBC
President Joe Biden’s press secretary, Jen Psaki, is planning to leave the White House to take an on-air role at MSNBC, a source familiar with the matter told CNBC on Friday.
Psaki, who is still fleshing out details with the company, is expected to leave the White House around May, Axios reported earlier Friday.
Psaki will host a show for NBCUniversal’s streaming platform, Peacock, Axios reported. She had reportedly also been in talks with CNN and other networks.
Psaki did not immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment. At a press briefing later Friday, she neither confirmed nor denied reports that she would leave the Biden administration.
“You can’t get rid of me yet,” Psaki told the first reporter to ask about her departure. “I have nothing to confirm about my length of public service or planned service … my focus every day continues to be speaking on behalf of the president.”
This was entirely predictable.

For once, she got a tough question.
Q: "Is it ethical for you to continue conducting this job while negotiating with a media outlet?"

Psaki will fit right in at MSNBC. She already knows all the Democrat talking points.
