Today marked White House press secretary Jen Psaki‚Äôs last day in the briefing room, and it‚Äôs been reported she‚Äôll be headed to MSNBC later this year. Psaki had a parting tongue bath for the WH press corps on her way out the door, and something else she said during her final briefing is worth focusing on a little more.
What has Psaki‚Äôs nearly year-and-a-half tenure as President Biden‚Äôs press secretary taught her about DC government? Don‚Äôt be drinking anything when you view this response:
Psaki: ‚ÄúPeople always ask me ‚Ä¶ about whether Washington is rotten, whether everybody is corrupt here ‚Ä¶ and I having done this job believe the absolute opposite is true.‚ÄĚ pic.twitter.com/Rtfog7X6nD

The people in DC who will most loudly agree with what Psaki said are the ones who are the most rotten and/or corrupt.
