Jen Psaki Discusses Role In New Interview, Says Team Tells Biden Not To Take Questions

DM

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki spoke with David Axelrod in an interview on “The Axe Files” podcast about her role as the Biden administration’s press secretary. A description of the show said that Psaki “didn’t envision herself returning to the White House after serving as Communications Director under President Obama, but when President Joe Biden asked her to join his team, she agreed.” CNN reported that Psaki said Biden is “always looking to tell the story, and he is always pushing and testing whether we’re speaking about things in an accessible way.” Psaki said Biden did a mini press conference earlier this week and claimed that Biden takes questions nearly every day he is out with the press, saying, “that is not something we recommend. In fact, 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 of the United States,” she explained. “We’re never going to satisfy the White House press corps and their desires for access. And I think there have been mistakes made in the past of trying to do that.”
