Today marked White House press secretary Jen Psaki’s last day in the briefing room, and it’s been reported she’ll 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’s nearly year-and-a-half tenure as President Biden’s press secretary taught her about DC government? Don’t be drinking anything when you view this response:

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