Following reports that she would soon be leaving the White House to do her cable work, press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters Friday afternoon that she could not confirm his continued public service or any plans she might have.
Ms. Psaki has just returned from her home after isolation from Covid-19.
Asked by Ed O’Keeffe of CBS News about reporting that she will be participating in MSNBC soon next month, Ms. Psaki joked: “Well, you can’t get rid of me yet, Ed.”
She then went on to say: “I can not confirm the length of my public service or the planned work or anything by considering the following plans.”
Reaffirming her commitment to focus on her role in responding to President Joe Biden’s questions, she added: “I hope I will meet my goal of treating everyone fairly and equitably.”
In her absence, three forums this week were hosted by communications director Kate Bedingfield, a Biden-world veteran. Her short speeches have the effect, albeit unintentionally, of appearing as her interview in the role.
Who will replace Jen Psaki?
After Ms. Sanders’ departure last year, several others may act as Ms. Psaki’s successors, including Ned Price of the State Department or even, according to Politico Playbook, a journalist, or communications officer for Dr. Jill Biden. director, Elizabeth Alexander.
At the moment, Ms. Jean-Pierre and Ms. Bedingfield appear to be top competitors in the event of a vacancy.
