Robert Gibbs To Step Down As White House Spokesman And Join ‘Professional Left” CNN: White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs says it’s been a “remarkable privilege” to be President Barack Obama’s top spokesman, “even when you wake up at 4 and pick up the paper and groan.” “I would not trade the worst days here for many of the best days at another job,” Gibbs told reporters Wednesday, after announcing his departure from the White House.
