Jen Psaki Chokes Up in Her Farewell Monologue for Her Last Day in the Biden Administration
PSAKI: "You know, this is my last briefing. And -- it is Brian. I wanted to start with a series of thank yous. I promised myself I wasn't going to get emotional. OK. Thank you. I want to say thank you to the president and the first lady. They entrusted me in serving this role for the last 15 months and I've talked about this a little bit before but during my first conversation with them, which was in November of 2020, after the election, I was very nervous when I went to see them in Delaware, and really what we talked about for the majority of our conversation was the the importance of returning integrity, respect and civility to the White House.
