White House press secretary Jen Psaki said on “The Axe Files” podcast with David Axelrod this week that she likely won’t be around for long.
“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 said in the interview published on Thursday.
“And I have little kids, and I don’t want to miss time with them,” she added.
The press secretary previously served in the Obama administration. Prior to her current role, Psaki also served as a political commentator for CNN, according to The Washington Times.
The interview also drew attention for Psaki’s remarks about President Joe Biden taking impromptu questions.
Psaki revealed “a lot of times we say ‘Don’t take questions,’ you know, but he’s going to do what he wants to do because he’s the president.”
She also said there was no way “to satisfy the White House and their desires for access.” Psaki recognized that seeking to satisfy others in the media was not only impossible, but sometimes unhelpful for getting things done.
Psaki’s interview offered new insights into her work and the Biden administration. Even if she doesn’t stick around long, her role has had a strong influence in the early days of the new president’s term.
