Media Praises Biden For All-Female Press Team, Forgets Trump Already Has One

President-Elect Joe Biden has assembled an all-female communication and press team to help him at the White House, much to the applause of his liberal colleagues and members of mainstream media.

As the Independent Journal Review reports, his senior staff will include Kate Bedingfield as White House Communications Director, Jen Psaki as White House Press Secretary, Karine Jean Pierre as Principal Deputy Press Secretary, Elizabeth Alexander as the First Lady’s Communications Director, and Ashley Etienne as the vice-presidential Communications Director.

“Communicating directly and truthfully to the American people is one of the most important duties of a President, and this team will be entrusted with the tremendous responsibility of connecting the American people to the White House,” Biden said in a statement alongside the announcement.

He added: “I am proud to announce today the first senior White House communications team comprised entirely of women. These qualified, experienced communicators bring diverse perspectives to their work and a shared commitment to building this country back better.”

Each of the members confirmed their selection in a statement or post online, thanking Biden.

“I’m unspeakably proud to have the opportunity to serve as White House Communications Director for [Joe Biden]. Working for him as VP and on this campaign gave me insight into what kind of capable, compassionate, clear-eyed president he will be and it will be a profound honor to…be one small part of his work,” Bedingfield said in a tweet.

Psaki, who also previously worked in the Obama-Biden administration, also said she was glad to return to the White House.

“Honored to work again for [Joe Biden], a man I worked on behalf of during the Obama-Biden Admin as he helped lead economic recovery, rebuilt our relationships with partners (turns out good practice) and injected empathy and humanity into nearly every meeting I sat in,” Psaki tweeted.

With Biden’s announcement of selecting women in all senior positions, he now makes history as the second president to do so.

The first?

President Donald J. Trump.
