In honor of Jen Psaki’s elevation to White House communications director, here for you is a compendium of some of the highlights of her tenure as State department spokeswoman.
Awkward moment alert: Psaki was junior to Josh Earnest when the two served as deputy press secretaries the first year of Obama’s presidency and is generally believed to have been passed over in favor of Earnest when President Obama elevated him to replace Jay Carney as press secretary last year. Now, she’ll be his boss.
Their partnership atop the White House communications food chain makes for a weird combination in Obamaland: They’re both very nice people. I apologize for diminishing them with their colleagues in this way.
