Another one gone: Jill Biden’s press secretary Michael LaRosa resigns

​First lady Jill Biden’s press secretary is stepping down this week, continuing the high turnover among the White House’s communications staff as messaging becomes a dire issue for the president.

Michael LaRosa, who served as the first lady’s spokesman in 2019 during the campaign and was appointed press secretary in January 2021, will join public affairs firm Hamilton Place Strategies​ as a managing director​, CNN ​first ​reported​ on Tuesday​.

“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,” Jill Biden told the outlet. 

“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,” she said. LaRosa’s last day will be Friday.

“For a kid from Easton, Pennsylvania, who only ever dreamed of stepping foot into this history-rich residence for a tour, working for First Lady Jill Biden in the White House has been the proudest and most rewarding experience of my life,” LaRosa said in a series of Twitter posts.

​”​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, on Friday, I will be moving on to a new adventure​,” he said.
