Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden has begun to impanel his dream team of officials he hopes will staff his administration, should he be inaugurated on Jan. 20. Liberals have lauded his would-be team of socially acceptable ivy league elites, calling him the antithesis to President Donald Trump in every possible way.
However, what many seem to have forgotten is that they might have preemptively branded Trump with some of their dirtier terms, such as racist, bigoted, and sexist. This constant indoctrination by the left and their back-pocket media talking heads might have caused some to jump to conclusions when they lauded Biden for his “all-female senior communications team.”
Biden has announced members of W.H. senior comms staff. They are:
-Elizabeth Alexander, Comms Dir. for @DrBiden
-Kate Bedingfield, W.H. Comms Dir.
– Ashley Etienne, Comms Dir. for Harris
-Karine Jean Pierre, Principal Deputy Press Sec.
-Jen Psaki, W.H. Press Sec.

“Members of his staff include Elizabeth Alexander as communications director for Dr. Jill Biden, Kate Bedingfield as White House communications director, Ashley Etienne as communications director for Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, Karine Jean Pierre as principal deputy press secretary, and Jen Psaki as White House press secretary,” the Independent Journal Review reported.
Even overlooking the distinct possibility that Biden isn’t actually the president-elect, but in fact a defunct figurehead for a corrupt political machine that could well be ruptured in the near future, he’s also not the first person to have selected an all-female senior communications staff, as was pointed out by White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Twitter.
“President @realDonaldTrump already has an ALL FEMALE Senior White House Press Team,” McEnany tweeted.
“So does @VP…
“So does @FLOTUS…
“So does @SecondLady…
“The completely DISCREDITED @washingtonpost once again reveals their blinding propagandist Fake News proclivities.”
Since I arrived at the Trump White House a woman has always been my boss.
First it was Hope Hicks, Mercedes Schlapp, and Sarah Sanders.
Then it was Stephanie Grisham.
And of course currently it’s Kayleigh McEnany and Alyssa Farah.
I guess the media forgot? 🤷🏻♂️ https://t.co/D6P1iiSCQS

Not to be confused with the facts, however, the press team hopefuls issued statements in thanks and adulation after the Biden team announcement.
“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 on Sunday.

Bedingfield also tweeted her thanks on Sunday saying, “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 wrote.
be one small part of his work. It will also be an honor to work alongside the incredible women who are taking on these roles together. @symonesanders and I were battle buddies on this campaign and there’s no one I’m prouder to have been in the fight with. 2/

In his statement about the picks, Biden said “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. 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.”
“Our country is facing unprecedented challenges–from the coronavirus pandemic to the economic crisis, to the climate crisis, and a long-overdue reckoning over racial injustice,” said Democrat Vice President nominee Kamala Harris.
“To overcome these challenges, we need to communicate clearly, honestly, and transparently with the American people, and this experienced, talented, and barrier-shattering team will help us do that. These communications professionals express our commitment to building a White House that reflects the very best of our nation.”
“Today’s appointees are respected communicators with a breadth of experience and a strong commitment to serving the American people,” said Biden’s pick for White House Chief of Staff, Ron Klain.
“President-elect Biden has a history of advocating on behalf of women in the U.S and around the world and today’s announcement is a continuation of that work, elevating this dynamic team of leaders to senior White House positions. They embody Joe Biden’s commitment to a diverse administration where the voices of all Americans are represented.”
