There’s no denying that President Biden’s White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki certainly has a way with words. Truly, it doesn’t leave you wondering why she was chosen by Biden and his administration for the job. Over the past almost year, we’ve watched as Psaki has handled herself with a level of poise and grace mixed with fire and gumption that the likes of Kayleigh McEnany and Sarah Huckabee Sanders could only dream of.
With that in mind, it’s undeniable that Psaki often says things without actually saying things — she has quite the knack for getting her point across without being a bully or just flat out loud like many of those who filled the position throughout Donald Trump’s term.
Earlier today, we reported that President Biden’s administration has told 11 top name former officials of the Trump administration that they are to resign from their positions on the military service academy advisory boards, positions they were appointed to by Donald Trump during his time in office, or they would be dismissed. Those in question include the likes of former White House press secretary Sean Spicer, former senior counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway, and former national security adviser H.R. McMaster.
Unsurprisingly, reporters were itching to jump at the topic during today’s press briefing, trying to make it sound as though Biden’s move was controversial.

In my opinion, Psaki lit this reporter up without ever even needing to give a point-blank response.
“I will let others evaluate whether they think Kellyanne Conway and Sean Spicer and others were qualified or not political to serve on these boards,” Psaki responded. “The President’s qualification requirements are not your party registration, they are whether you’re qualified to serve and whether you’re aligned with the values of this administration.”

All I can say is: Psaki does it again.
