First Lady Jill Biden’s former spokesperson joined a Democrat firm helping the White House navigate the House GOP’s investigations amid the drama surrounding first son Hunter Biden.
Michael LaRosa, who left his post as the first lady’s press secretary last year, is joining up with Democrat nonprofit Facts First USA as a senior adviser.
“A hearty [Facts First USA] welcome to [LaRosa],” Facts First USA spokesperson Eddie Vale tweeted.
Facts First USA, according to its website, aims to act as a “Truth SWAT-team” to counter “bad-faith lies and misinformation” by Republicans.
“Republicans have telegraphed their plan to use congressional control to bombard the Biden Administration with investigations, to flood the White House with subpoenas, and to abuse the extensive tools of congressional oversight to drive the narrative about the Biden Administration during the run up to the 2024 presidential election,” the group’s website states.
“We will work to limit the reach of the right-wing rage machine – to keep it within their own echo chamber rather than allowing it to become part of the mainstream media coverage,” the website continues.
LaRosa, a former producer for Chris Matthews’ MSNBC show, which is no longer on the air, was widely mocked on Twitter last year when he heaped praise on Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman during his Senate campaign last year following the release of a doctor’s note. The note was aimed at assuaging fears about the then-Democratic senatorial nominee’s physical fitness for office.
“I don’t even think he needed the note, to be honest with you. You see, the guy is a political athlete, one of the best ones I’ve ever seen,” LaRosa claimed, after Duquesne-UPMC Dr. Clifford Chen released a missive evaluating Fetterman as having “no work restrictions and can work full duty in public office.”
Facts First USA did not immediately respond to FOX News Digital’s questions as to the nature of LaRosa’s role, whether there would be coordination between the firm and the White House or first lady’s office, and the former spokesperson’s previous tweet about Hunter Biden.
