The Brief: A #PsakiBomb is when White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki swiftly shuts down questions from the media.


A #PskaiBomb refers to when Jen Psaki, White House Press Secretary for the Biden Administration, shuts down unnecessary, leading, or asinine questions from the media.

It is a play on the word sake bomb, which is when a shot of Japanese alcohol sake is dropped into a glass of beer.

The phrase began spreading on Twitter in late January 2021.
