Powerful women in White House? Been there, done that

Kayleigh McEnany (press sec)President-elect Joe Biden is being praised by left-wing media outlets for an incoming all-female communications team but, despite the glowing headlines, it’s not as groundbreaking as it sounds.

"I'm thrilled when women rise to powerful positions in any type of career, whether that is in a Trump administration, a Biden administration, or in the private sector," says Kelsey Bolar of Independent Women's Forum. "That said, the media bias surrounding this story was very apparent when you look at the makeup of the Trump administration senior staff, which happened to be all female."

In an op-ed written by Bolar and published in The Hill, the IWF analyst points out that Trump staffers Kayleigh McEnany (pictured above), Alyssa Farah, Stephanie Grisham, Katie Miller, and Kara Brooks handled White House communications for the Trump administration.

"They were preceded by Hope Hicks, Sarah Sanders, and Mercedes Schlapp,” Bolar points out in the op-ed, “who all served in higher-ranking roles in different capacities in the government."

What is even worse for Democrats and the media, Bolar tells One News Now, is that Biden’s all-female team is “following in President Trump’s footsteps.”

Because it was the much-despised Trump administration, however, the influential female staffers did not appear on glossy magazine covers or enjoy media coverage about making history.

Jen Psaki, the former Obama-era White House communications director, will be Biden's press secretary and Kate Bedingfield, Biden's deputy campaign manager and communications director during campaign season, will serve as White House communications director.
