Former White House press secretary Jay Carney says he will remain loyal to the Democratic party in his role as a CNN Worldwide political commentator.

“I am who I am. I deeply believed in what I did and what he has done as president. And I don't walk away from that at all,” Carney told The Hollywood Reporter in an interview. “There is no nirvana, but CNN’s mission is news-focused. They are not actively pursuing a niche in one political camp or the other. I believe in the president, believe in the rightness of his policies. I'm also my own person, and I'm going to express my views. But it would be disingenuous to suddenly pretend that I wasn't loyal to one side.”

Carney, who joined CNN on Sept. 10, also said, “I'm not thinking long-term about a TV career.”

Carney faced off with Sen. John McCain during his debut as a CNN commentator.

The Daily Beast described the exchange as "the television equivalent of a mugging in a dark alley."

When asked why he chose CNN, Carney said the network is "down the middle ... not partisan."

Twitter users weren’t surprised by Carney’s declaration of loyalty.
