Jen Psaki attracts the eye of “Scandal” followers who cannot recover from how a lot the brand new White Home press secretary is like Abby and even the character is reacting!
Jen Psaki is the new White House press secretary after Joe Biden is officially President of the United States. After their first briefings this week, people on social media discussed how much they reminded them of the ‘scandalous’ character Abby Whelan played by Darby Stanchfield! With that said, Psaki managed to make a good impression and even the actress responded to the comparisons and chose to offer some advice to the real life press officer in a playful post.
Fans of the show double-shot this week, seeing Jen Psaki behind the podium, and quickly heading to Twitter and other platforms to rave about a real life (though some called it “more boring”). Abby from “Scandal!”

What’s even more interesting, aside from their looks similar to the red hair, is that Abby is also the White House press secretary on the show before becoming Chief of Staff.
One user tweeted, “Jen Psaki gives me the boring Abby Whelan vibe and I LOVE it.”
Another felt the same way they asked themselves in another post: “Did we get our real life, Abby Whelan? Lol. ‘
A third person even suspected that Shonda Rhimes, the creator of the scandal, was behind Joe Biden’s picture of Jen to recreate the popular show in real life!
‘The new press secretary looks like Abby Whelan. I see you Shonda! ‘
And the tweets about the similarities even got to Darby, who hilariously tweeted as the character of Abby and wrote, ‘Dear @PressSec, # 1- If your boss ever forgets your name, pop a name tag. (Fitz called me ‘Gabby’ for WEEKS) # 2- Don’t be hungry for electricity and try to kill your friend. It won’t go well. # 3 – Not too much hairspray. Ever. ‘
And that’s not all! In true Abby fashion, she signed her entry: ‘Best,’ Red ‘aka Sassy Abby Whelan.’
