White House Press Secretary Karin Jean-Pierre said It’s Friday: “Also new, ah, I know Ben is making history.” He was referring to Ben LaBolt, the new White House communications director. “You know,” Jean-Pierre struggles, “we believe here, in the Biden-Harris White House, that representation is important, that he’s going to be the first openly, uh, gay, uh, um, uh, communications director, which is really, really important. .” this?
