White House Press Secretary Jay Carney (pictured) is reportedly stepping down. He survived a lengthy term in what is considered one of Washington's toughest jobs.
Carney, as the de facto voice of the White House, has dealt with a barrage of scandals since the start of Obama's second term. He has defended Obama from the briefing room podium on everything from the botched launch of HealthCare.gov to the VA scandal to lingering questions about the Benghazi terror attack.
Carney will no longer need to go home every night to the task of re-sharpening his Pinocchio nose after long days of lying for the president.
