It appears Biden’s press secretary is about to call it quits already.
After four months of answering softball questions on behalf of the Biden administration, Jen Paski recently announced she plans to resign from her position.
Psaki was quoted saying “I think it’s going to be time for somebody else to have this job in a year from now or about a year from now”.
She stated her reason for stepping in the near future is because she wants to spend more time with her two children.

Fox News covered Psaki’s latest comments on stepping down, see what they had to report:
Press Secretary Jen Psaki revealed Thursday that she will probably leave her current role at the White House in “about a year.”
Psaki made the prediction while talking with former Obama official David Axelrod for his podcast “The Axe Files.”
“You said at the beginning that you didn’t expect to be in this job forever, for four years and so on. Is that still your thought that at some point you’re going to step away now?” Axelrod asked.
“I think it’s going to be time for somebody else to have this job in a year from now or about a year from now,” Psaki replied.
“I mean, when I talked to the inner circle of the Biden orbit about this, we talked about coming in and doing this job for a year, which was quite appealing to me for many reasons,” Psaki added.”One, this is, what a moment in history. Right. To be a part of. It’s always true in the White House. But I think following Trump, especially if you can take the temperature down a little bit, that’s a cool thing to be a part of.”

Business Insider covered Psaki’s announcement too:
White House press secretary Jen Psaki said she plans to leave the role next year to spend more time with her family.
“I think it’s going to be time for somebody else to have this job in a year from now or about a year from now,” Psaki said in an interview with CNN’s David Axelrod, her former colleague in the Obama administration, on Thursday.
Psaki, who delivers regular press briefings as the public face of President Joe Biden’s administration, said she wanted to be able to spend more time with her two young children.
“I don’t want to miss moments. I don’t want to miss things, and I’m very mindful of that as well,” she said.
It appears ” circling back” to reporters has taken its toll on Psaki.
As of press time, there is no truth to the rumors that Psaki is headed back to running Facebook:
