President Joe Biden announced on Thursday that he’s promoting Karine Jean-Pierre to replace Jenn Psaki as press secretary as she’s moving to a gig at MSNBC:

Of course, Jean-Pierre herself was an MSNBC analyst so it’s like the circle of life, but a liberal pundit edition:

We’ll also point out how insane it was that Psaki was still at the podium in the first place:

“The fact that Jen Psaki is still briefing the White House Press Corps but is moving soon to MSNBC as a host is a complete scandal/conflict of interest and no one even mentions it.”

Trevor Noah even mocked the White House for it, too:

“I mean, Trevor Noah made a joke about it on Saturday night and everyone yukked about it.”

More from Psaki on the new press secretary:

“She will be the first black woman and the first openly LGBTQ+ person to serve as the White House Press Secretary. Representation matters and she will give a voice to many, but also make many dream big about what is truly possible.”

@KJP46 has decades of experience from her early years working in government and politics in NYC, to her years as an outspoken advocate, to serving as a long-time advisor to @POTUS back when he was the VP.”

“She is passionate. She is smart and she has a moral core that makes her not just a great colleague, but an amazing Mom and human. Plus, she has a great sense of humor.”

“One of our first conversations was about how to build a drama free team that focused on doing the job and also supporting each other while playing a role every day in rebuilding trust in government. Grateful to have had her by my side.”

“I can’t wait to see her shine as she brings her own style, brilliance and grace to the podium.”
