Stephanie Grisham leaving job as White House press secretary 'without ever having briefed the press'

Stephanie Grisham leaving job as White House press secretary 'without ever having briefed the press'
Fox News

A political bombshell came on Tuesday morning when CNN reported that White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham is leaving her position and will be resuming her previous role as First Lady Melania Trump’s press secretary.


Grisham’s departure comes as a surprise, as she has been a Trump loyalist — and unquestioning loyalists tend to be the ones who last the longest in President Donald Trump’s administration.

According to CNN reporters Kaitlan Collins and Kate Bennett, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows is “considering several candidates” as possible replacements for Grisham — including Alyssa Farah (currently a spokesperson for the U.S. Department of Defense) and Kayleigh McEnany (a spokesperson for Trump’s campaign).

In June 2019, Grisham left her position as Melania Trump’s press secretary and replaced former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

The news of Grisham’s departure has inspired a lot of discussion on Twitter.

@Doritnyc posted, “Damn, she tried so hard to have no integrity!,” while @kim wrote, “Good riddance! Er, unless she flips on #TrumpCrimeFamily in which case I might buy her book.” And @ehlers5150_tom wrote, “I couldn’t pick her out of a lineup.”

@ElizabethClar1 posted, “She should have to return all the pay she received for doing absolutely nothing in her job description.” And @realist_brutal asserted, “How can the press secretary be out of a job that she never did?”
