White House Communications Director Kate Bedingfield is leaving the White House later this month. (For fans of West Wing, Bedingfield was President Joe Biden’s Toby Ziegler). The reason the administration gave for her departure was that she wanted to spend more time with her husband and children after three years in the challenging post and even more in previous roles.
White House communications director Alyssa Farah resigned from her post Thursday after 3½ years in the Trump administration. Farah, 31, began her White House tenure as press secretary under Vice President Pence before joining the Defense Department as press secretary last September, and she returned to the White House as communications director in April.
Biden campaign communications director Kate Bedingfield will serve as Biden’s White House communications director. Jen Psaki, a longtime Democratic spokeswoman, will be his press secretary.
Stephanie Grisham is Trump’s communications czar. Only most people wouldn’t know it. She says she hates to be the story. And for the better part of two months, she’s succeeded in not becoming one.
