Media-declared President-elect Joe Biden has spent the past week making headlines over his selections for key positions within his administration and his Cabinet, even while the 2020 election results are still being challenged in numerous legal cases spanning numerous battleground states.
That didn’t stop Biden’s transition team from making more news over the weekend, as it was announced that his communications team, including his press secretary, is comprised of all females — a typical, textbook move from the left’s gender/identity politics playbook.
“A statement released Sunday touted that ‘for the first time in history, these communications roles will be filled entirely by women,’” according to a Fox News report.
President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris today announced new members of the White House staff who will serve in senior communications roles.

But perhaps even more noteworthy, according to the Daily Wire, is the fact that his new communications team almost all have connections to Biden’s favorite cable news networks, like CNN and MSNBC.
Filling the coveted role of White House press secretary will be Jen Psaki, a prominent voice on Biden’s transition team in the wake of the 2020 election. Psaki’s resume is deep, including a stint working as former President Barack Obama’s State Department spokesperson before stepping up to the role as Obama’s communications director in the White House.
After her roles in the Obama administration, like many Democrats, she signed a presumably lucrative contract as a CNN commentator.
Psaki isn’t the only CNN commentator to step into the big leagues of presidential communications, as CNN political commentator Symone Sanders will be working as Sen. Kamala Harris’ chief spokesperson and senior adviser.
She, too, left CNN after she was recruited to join Biden’s transition team.
Another key role in Biden’s communications squad will be former NBC News and MSNBC political analyst Karine Jean-Pierre, who was named over the weekend to serve as Biden’s principal deputy press secretary. Like the others, she left her role in the mainstream media earlier this year to join the Biden campaign.
Jean-Pierre also has a resume with a long list of various jobs working in the Obama administration, seemingly a valuable qualification in order to serve in the Biden administration.
Others on Biden’s team, including his pick for secretary of state, Tony Blinken, was formerly a global affairs analyst for CNN. Many others in the Biden camp have resumes that show experience in the mainstream media.
While none of this is much a surprise, given how CNN, MSNBC and other were in the tank for Biden since he announced his intentions to run for the presidency, it highlights the hypocrisy of many anchors on those networks who have repeatedly slammed Fox News for providing a “revolving door” of employees for President Donald Trump.
With any luck, Trump’s lawyers will prevail and make Biden’s media-declared victory look like a bad nightmare. But if the worst-case scenario does occur, Americans might have to suffer through four long years of mainstream media hacks carrying Biden’s messaging at the podium in the White House briefing room.
