Earlier this year, Karine Jean Pierre became the first Black and openly gay woman to become the public face for the Biden administration as Press Secretary, succeeding Jenn Psaki. Pierreā€™s decorated background includes being the Regional Political Director for the White House Office of Political Affairs during the Obama-Biden Administration and Deputy Chief of Staff and Director of Legislative and Budget Affairs for two members in the New York City Council. In addition, she has also served as Chief Public Affairs Officer for and as a political analyst for NBC. In her current role, Jean Pierre runs her podium, her way and keeps even the most prickly White House correspondents in check. However, that hasn't stopped Fox poster boy Tucker Carlson from trying to degrade her accomplishments by calling her ascent an affirmative action hire. However, his desperation to tear down a Black woman was futile. Pierre has exemplified grace and dignity throughout her tenure, tackling complex issues like abortion and the January 6 insurrection head-on.
