Fox News co-anchor Dana Perino addressed the media praise for President-elect Joe Biden’s all-female White House communications team by noting that conservative women know they’re “not going to get the glowing profile” and so must simply get “shit done.”
Perino’s comments came after the Sunday announcement that Kate Bedingfield, Jen Psaki, Karine Jean Pierre, Pili Tobar, Ashley Etienne and Symone Sanders will be joining the communications team in top roles.

Media praise for the announcement was criticized by members of President Donald Trump’s communications team, who said that their group is female-led.
Discussing the topic on a Monday afternoon “The Five” segment, Perino noted the significance of “how they packaged it.”
“And the Obama Administration did this a lot too,” she said. “There’s like ‘this is the first the first the first’ … there’s nothing wrong with that, if you think you want to get a quick hit in the media, you know exactly how to do it.”
“Conservative administrations typically don’t do that, and also as a conservative woman you know you’re not going to get the glowing profile, so you just get your shit done,” she said, quickly switching to “You get your stuff done” after her co-hosts exploded in laughter.
