BREAKING: The Bidens Just Lost Another Staff Member

(Republican Insider) – Well, it looks like the Biden administration has lost yet another staff member, this time First Lady Jill Biden’s press secretary is the one who has decided to pursue opportunities elsewhere.

According to a report from The Western Journal, Michael LaRosa confirmed that he is departing from the Office of the First Lady of the United States in an email that was sent out to news outlet The Hill on Tuesday.

The first lady took an opportunity on Tuesday to heap a whole lot of praise on LaRosa in a statement that was released to CNN, who first reported the news of his leaving the administration.

“For nearly three years, from the campaign to the White House, Michael has brought an encyclopedic knowledge of politics and media to my team as my spokesperson and adviser,” Biden said in her statement.

“On a small team, loyalty and friendship are lifelong — we will miss Michael. However, we are excited for him to begin a new chapter in his career,” the first lady continued.

The last day for LaRosa in the administration will be Friday, according to a report from The Hill.

So what’s next for the soon-to-be former press secretary for the first lady?

He is apparently going to be working for Hamilton Place Strategies, which is a public affairs firm. CNN stated that he will be its managing director in the Washington, D.C., area.

“I am forever grateful to [the first lady] for taking a chance on me nearly three years ago, bringing me on this journey with her around the country, and the privilege of being a small part of the history that she and [the president] made,” LaRosa went on to say in a series of tweets Tuesday.

“From long drives in minivans, jumping on and off planes, and ‘No Malarkey’ busses on the campaign to traveling to 10 countries, nearly 40 states, and over 75 cities in the first year and a half of the Biden-Harris Administration, I am now moving on to a new adventure,” La Rosa continued.

“A White House official told CNN that the hunt is on for La Rosa’s replacement, with candidates ‘currently being considered,’ the outlet reported,” the WJ report stated. “LaRosa’s departure comes as multiple White House communications staffers quit their roles in the Biden administration in recent months.”

The Biden administration has practically been hemorrhaging staff members — especially those working in Kamala Harris’ office — for a long time now.

Earlier this month, Biden’s administration announced Kate Bedingfield would be leaving her post as the communications director for the White House toward the end of the month of July after working for almost three years for Joe Biden and his 2020 campaign.

“Without Kate Bedingfield’s talent and tenacity, Donald Trump might still be in the White House, the Rescue Plan and the Infrastructure Law might still be unrealized goals, and Ketanji Brown Jackson might not be sitting on the Supreme Court,” White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain proclaimed in a statement put out at the time.

“She has played a huge role in everything the President has achieved – from his second term as Vice President, through the campaign, and since coming to the White House,” Klain continued.

“According to The Hill, Elizabeth Alexander, Jill Biden’s communications director, is thought to be a possible replacement for Bedingfield,” the Western Journal reported.

Alexander actually wished LaRosa well on his new endeavor on Tuesday in a tweet saying, “It’s hard to imagine this journey without you, LaRo. We will all miss your wit, media instincts, and news perspective. I have appreciated your partnership and friendship more than you know!”
