Jen Psaki: Threats to Family Were Most Difficult Part of White House Press Secretary Job

From a story on politico.com by Quint Forgey headlined “Psaki: Threats to family were ‘most personally difficult’ part of press secretary job”:

Outgoing White House press secretary Jen Psaki described in personal terms her 16-month tenure as President Joe Biden’s top spokesperson and the strains of the job, telling a group of reporters that she had received threats to her family, which warranted Secret Service involvement.

“I will say the thing that has been hardest personally is I’ve had threats,” Psaki said during an event, which was sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor and took place in Washington, D.C.

Jen Psaki Will Go Down As One of the Best White House Press Secretaries

From The Poynter Report with Tom Jones:

This is Jen Psaki’s final week as White House press secretary, so today is a good day to offer up a few from-afar thoughts on her tenure.

Psaki will go down as one of the best to ever hold the title of White House press secretary. Even when Chris Wallace was at Fox News, a frequent critic of the current administration, he called Psaki one of the best ever.

Psaki has restored honor, dignity and class to the White House briefing room after four years of Donald Trump press secretaries, who seemed more interested in picking fights and criticizing the media than effectively communicating that administration’s policies and agenda.
