Being hailed as historic because of her skin color and LGBT sexual orientation, Jean-Pierre was announced as Psaki’s successor in a statement by President Joe Biden.
Jean-Pierre has worked as a Democrat staffer in a variety of positions for several years, working for Obama when he was a senator, then joining his administration and acting as an advisor to the Democratic National Convention in the 2012 election.
She has worked for a radical leftist organizations as well, such as MoveOn.org, which was established to oppose the impeachment of then-President Bill Clinton, according to Breitbart. She has also gone on record saying that anyone who has even been accused of sexual misconduct, whether there’s credible evidence or not, should not run for office.
Biden, who she now works for, has been accused of sexual assault by former aide Tara Reade.
Jean-Pierre will start her new role near the end of the month, as Psaki announced she would be stepping down.
Fox News reporter Peter Doocy, who has clashed repeatedly with Psaki for daring to ask tough questions, even admitted he was sorry to see her leave.
When called on in a recent briefing, Doocy started by saying “sorry to see you go.”
“Are you?” replied Psaki.

“Yes,” he responded, “and you’ve always been a good sport. On behalf of everybody,” he continued, waving his hand around the room, “thank you.”
“Thank you. As have you,” she replied.
Doocy wished Psaki well, despite the her recent agreement with Biden’s assertion that Doocy was a “stupid son of a bit**.” She did not apologize for this statement.
