White House press secretary Jen Psaki tweeted Wednesday former news anchor Dan Rather is welcome in the White House press briefing room “anytime,” noting “she may regret” the invitation.
Psaki’s response originated from Rather’s tweet at Psaki, which praised her for reminding him of his “daily” White House beat. “Would be fun to find my way back to the briefing room again the future,” he prodded.
Watching the back and forth between the White House press corps and the deft @PressSec Jen Psaki reminds me of when that was my daily beat. I miss it sometimes. Would be fun to find my way back to the briefing room again the future.

Psaki responded by saying, “I may regret this, but you are welcome anytime! there is always a seat for @DanRather in the briefing room.”
Rather’s history as a journalist is colored.
