Psaki holds back tears in her final appearance as the White House press secretary.


White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki promised herself “not emotional” when making her final appearance behind the James Brady Briefing Room podium, but holding back tears just before being questioned by reporters in the 244th Briefing Room, that promise was shattered. it broke right away last time.

Known for camping out for a role on the MSNBC cable news network, Psaki thanked President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden for honoring them with serving as White House press secretary during Biden’s first 15 months in office.

Recalling her first meeting with Biden since the 2020 presidential election, she said she discussed “the importance of returning integrity, respect and courtesy to the White House” when contacting the press.

“I hope to follow the example of integrity and grace they set for all of us and for all of us every day, and I am incredibly grateful to them,” she said.

Psaki also thanked colleagues in the White House press office, praising them as “incredibly strong, smart, hardworking, deep, wonderful human beings” and “great civil servants.”

“People always ask if Washington is rotten,” she said. Is everyone here corrupt?” she said. “After doing this, I think the absolute opposite is true because I have worked and been involved with these amazing people and this amazing team throughout the administration.”
