The Biden administration has had another loss within its media Department as senior official Mariel Saez announces her resignation from the Biden White House.
According to The Washington Examiner Mariel Saez announced on Monday that she was leaving her post as the director of broadcast media.
CNN reported that Saez provided a statement to the outlet about her departure, saying that it was an “honor” to serve in the administration.
“I am grateful to my talented and dedicated colleagues at the White House and across the Administration who worked hand-in-hand with me to communicate the President’s priorities across broadcast media,” Saez said in her statement.
Saez was far from an outsider to D.C. politics, having had a long and illustrious career, primarily serving with Democrats, for years before taking the Biden administration post.
“Additionally, Saez worked on Biden’s presidential campaign and his Presidential Inaugural Committee, according to the outlet,” The Examiner reported.
The media relations official reportedly resigned amid several other White House officials saying they were likely leaving the administration, following Biden’s State of the Union address on March. 1.
While the official leaving have not given specific reasons for their departure, Biden has suspiciously had distinctly bad approval ratings.
FiveThirtyEight reported a 41.9% approval rating for the president and a 53.1% disapproval rating as of Monday. RealClearPolitics had similar statistics, showing the president’s polling average with an average approval rating of 41.7%, along with a disapproval rating of 52.7%.
