White House press secretary Jen Psaki doled out some advice during an appearance on The View Friday on how Americans can get over the voting rights bill failing in the U.S. Senate while also shedding some light on her future plans.
‘So my advice to everyone out there who’s frustrated, sad, angry, pissed off – feel these emotions, go to a kickboxing class, have a margarita, do whatever you need to do this weekend and then wake up on Monday morning, we’ve got to keep fighting,’ Psaki said.
She noted that the ‘path forward’ is to simply ‘keep fighting,’ as the current make-up and rules of the Senate will continue to prevent voting rights bills from being passed.
At the end of the interview, Behar also asked Psaki if she still planned to leave the job sometime this year. ‘I don’t know when I’m leaving. This is an honor and a privilege and I love working for President Obam-Biden,’ she said, almost slipping up and saying her ex-boss’ name.
‘I love spending time with him, hearing what’s on his mind. Going on the road with him is actually the best thing possible. I wish everybody could have that experience, because he gets so much joy out of it,’ she continued. ‘No one likes a rope line more than President Biden.’
But Psaki also pointed out that she has ‘two little kids,’ a boy who is three, and her six-year-old daughter Vivi, who was often photographed at the White House during the Obama years.
‘So I spend a lot of time here, it’s a joy,’ she said, as she had done the interview remotely from the White House. ‘But I’m also potty-training by 3-year-old, my 6-year-old is in kindergarten and I don’t want to miss things in their life either.’
‘I also think that this is a job where it will be time for a new face at a certain point in time,’ she added. ‘And I don’t know when that’s going to be.’
