Video: White House Press Secretary Jay Carney Resigns

President Barack Obama has just announced that Press Secretary Jay Carney has resigned. Stepping into the role will be White House Special Assistant to the President, Josh Earnest.

Obama said Carney told him of his decision in April, and Carney later said he plans to leave the position in mid-June.

The President announced that deputy press secretary Josh Earnest will step into the role.

Obama considers Carney “one of my closest friends.”

“He’s got good judgment. He has good temperament and he’s got a good heart, and I will miss him a lot,” Obama said.

Carney previously spent 21 years in journalism, including a stint as Washington bureau chief for Time magazine, and Obama noted that he went from one of those asking the questions to the person behind the podium in the White House briefing room.
