Another day, another Trumpworld memoir. The latest curse from the Trump administration was courtesy of Stephanie Grisham, who served in the White House for four years: director of communications and press secretary in the West Wing, as well as director of communications and chief of staff in Melania’s East Wing. Trump. IN I will now answer your questions, her new memoir, Grisham depicts the White House, “where everything was like a fiery clown car moving at full speed in a fireworks depot.” Covered between the president’s insulting leadership style and the conflicting loyalty he felt toward the first lady, Grisham’s last straw came on January 6, 2021, when she resigned during the Capitol Uprising.
Trump, for his part, has already gone on to discredit Grisham. Describing Grisham as “very angry and spiteful” after the split, President Trump said in a statement, “Stephanie didn’t have what she needed, and that was obvious from the start. She had big problems and we felt she had to solve them on her own. Now, like everyone else, she gets paid by a radical publisher who says bad and untrue things. “Melania Trump also applauds, saying in a statement, “The author is desperately trying to restore his tarnished reputation by manipulating and distorting the truth about Ms. Trump. Ms. Grisham is a deceived and troubled person who does not deserve anyone’s trust.”
Grisham’s story, like any Trumpworld memoir, should be read with a fair amount of skepticism. After all, as Grisham herself admits, “Accidental dishonesty went through the White House as if it were in the air system.” But Grisham expects readers to disregard her account as a face value by writing, “By the way, this is not a book where you should like me.” I will now answer your questions before publication; we are now smashing the biggest bombs below.
First: Grisham offers an insight into the daily life of the first lady and the mocking nickname they inspired:
I could only count a few times over the years that Mrs. Trump was actually in her office. She preferred to manage things through text or phone calls, which initially made it difficult to set an agenda and establish a close working relationship. Mrs. Trump worked from home long before the country was … the first lady kept in her rooms at the residence. It was a joke among those who knew her. The secret services unofficially called her “Rapunzel” because she stayed in her tower and never went down. In fact, some agents tried to assign her details because they knew that the First Lady’s limited movements and travels meant that they could spend more time at home with their families.
According to Grisham, there was no lost love between Melania Trump and her stepchildren, especially Ivanka Trump:
Ivanka was constantly entering the press, which really should have been reserved for the president and the first lady. This was another example of the furriers being placed on the same level as the first pair, and that was indecent. It was about protocol and rules for Mrs. Trump; or all of us as staff, it was about allowing her to be in her role and the people of the United States to see her present them with dignity and class … Ms. Trump seemed relieved to see that I shared her disappointments with her daughter-in-law, so much so that she eventually let me go by the nickname she had given her in private: “the princess.” Many times after that I would hear one of her favorite complaints about stocks: “The princess always runs to her father.”
The misbehavior on the part of the furriers earned the couple their own mocking nickname. “Because they did little of everything and could be premature and self-absorbed, we in the East Wing called [the Kushners] “Trainees,” Grisham wrote. “Mrs. Trump was having fun, and she used the nickname herself from time to time. “Tensions between the East Wing and the Kushners are a enduring theme throughout the book, with Grisham constantly highlighting the conflict of interest proposed by Kushner’s role in the administration. Take, for example, the issue of Jared Kushner’s security clearance:
The biggest irony, of course, was when I heard that Jared Kushner had never been granted a security clearance because of all his problems, financial interests, and so on. As far as I know, he received only the most basic permission, but he was at all the most important meetings of the administration. He also addressed many heads of state, such as Benjamin Netanyahu and the leadership of the Saudi government, something that no official should do, let alone if they do not have the highest security clearance.
Recalling when Kushner teamed up with speech writer Stephen Miller to write a televised address at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Grisham wrote at length about what she saw as Kushner’s poisonous influence in the White House:
Many times I have shared with Ms. Trump my opinion that if we lose re-election in 2020, it will be because of Jared. She disagreed with me. My hot opinion was that his arrogance and arrogance had grown over the years, and he resigned without any shame. I dare say that being in the White House has changed Jared as a person. There was no reason for him to sit with the speaker and set out our nation’s plan to fight the global pandemic. And I knew that if things went wrong with the speech that felt inevitable, he would be the first person to say in the president’s ear that the communications team had screwed up. He was Rasputin in a tight suit.
But the furriers are not the only aides in Trump’s world who have come under fire I will ask you the questions now. Grisham doesn’t cut words when he writes about Trump supporter Lindsay Graham:
Lindsay Graham? Well, I was impressed that he used Trump to delete the free ones, as if there was no tomorrow (it looks like he still is). He showed up in Mar-a-Lago or Bedminster to play free golf, stuff his face with free food, and hang out with Trump and his friends. I once came across him in Bedminster after he had evicted a White House official so he could take her room. Senator Freeloader sat at a table by the pool, a big smile on his face, embracing the delicacies he received as a ruler. He said to me with a terrifying smile, “Isn’t it great? Man, this is life.
Grisham, like many other alumni in Trump’s world, notes Trump’s obsession with dictators. But her memories of the G20 summit in Osaka in 2019 are the most chilling, suggesting a very cozy relationship between Trump and Vladimir Putin:
Trump usually spent a minute or two talking about what “animals” reporters might be, and then came the press. Trump started the same thing with President Putin, then changed his tone. With all the talk of sanctions against Russia for meddling in the 2016 election and various human rights abuses, Trump told Putin: “Okay, I’m going to act a little tougher on you in a few minutes. But this is about the camera, and once they leave, we’ll talk. You understand. ‘
The most interesting moments in I will now answer your questions Come when Grisham offers a behind-the-scenes look at memorable moments. Take, for example, her memories of the hand heard “all over the world.” In 2017, Melania Trump did titles when she appeared to slap her husband’s hand during a diplomatic visit to Saudi Arabia in 2017. The truth, according to Grisham, is less interesting:
For those who want to know, Ms. Trump “pushed” her husband’s hand that day because she thought she was against the protocol of holding hands at such an official ceremony. Melania followed the rules, sometimes through no fault of her own, and her husband knew it. He often tried to hold her hand or deliberately stirred her hands in front of the cameras to annoy her.
Grisham also delved into the 2018 Stormy Daniels scandal, recalling when Daniels sued Donald Trump for his efforts to suppress the disclosure of their affair. In the ensuing media blitz, Daniels likened Trump’s penis to a toadstool – an image in which he took such a problem that he called Grisham from Air Force One to set the record.
“Did you see what he said about me?” he said after a moment, referring to Stormy. Then he added, without surprise, “All lies. All lies. ”
Then I realized exactly what was bothering him. “Everything downstairs is fine,” he said.
What the hell did I have to say to that? I stuck to just “Okay,” praying that we would somehow shut ourselves off.
“It’s all right,” he repeated.
Remember Trump’s mysterious visit to Walter Reed Medical Center in 2019, when there was a protocol disturbed and doctors were asked to sign the NDA? Grisham takes us behind the scenes.
I remembered what happened in the fall of 2019, when Trump made a seemingly impromptu visit to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. I was informed, as was a small handful of others, including Vice President Pence, of the reason for the visit. Pence was told he had to stay around town “just in case.” What I was not allowed to tell anyone at the time was that the president had a very common procedure that all men and women over the age of fifty should have. In such a procedure, a patient is sometimes placed. In Trump’s case, that could mean signing a letter under the Twenty-Fifth Amendment to temporarily put Pence at the helm, but the president was ultimately not subject, I believe simply, so as not to be seen as a resignation. .
But we know the real behind-the-scenes story you want to know: behind the scenes of Trump’s hair care routine. Grisham has covered you:
Donald Trump’s hair, when it wasn’t a perfect haircut, was a sight to behold. There’s no way to describe exactly how he shapes this gorgeous and very wild mane, but that includes a comb, a hair dryer and a nasty tone hair spray. His hair is much longer than I imagined, a few inches from end to end. He cuts it himself with a huge pair of scissors, which could probably cut a strip of hole in one of his estates.
That’s all for now, dear reader. I’ll see you next time there will be memoirs from Trumplverd for excavations, which will certainly not be long.
