Rimpsaki Saying goodbye to the White House press office Friday to give her one last briefing…it’s as emotional as it is apolitical.
Psaki worked up the courage to be stoic with the press corps, but emotions surfaced as she looked back on her tenure as press secretary.
She talks about her mission statement – to help restore integrity and grace to the office. She admits that sometimes she doesn’t do enough…said the Irishman sometimes comes to her and her boss. But, she added: “In my best days, when I look back, I hope I can follow the example of integrity and grace they set for us all, every day.”
She also spoke about the messy affairs of dealing with the media…a deal that could be super controversial. Arguments and debates are actually part of democracy, as Psaki said.
Psaki said from the start of skydiving that she would only be doing work for a year or so, so she actually stayed longer than she expected.
Psaki is rumored to be joining MSNBC as an analyst.
