This one looks like one of those Fox News Barbie Dolls.

Stephanie Grisham, the White House press secretary, is rejoining the staff of Melania Trump, the first lady, and Kayleigh McEnany, a campaign spokeswoman will replace her — the latest shake-up in a communications office that has been seen almost constant turnover under President Trump.
Ms. McEnany has been a vocal defender of Mr. Trump on television, the main role the president has long believed the press secretary should play, according to current and former advisers.
Her hiring is the first major personnel move by the incoming White House chief of staff, former Representative Mark Meadows of North Carolina. It was first reported by CNN.
Ms. Grisham, who never held a press briefing in her nine-month tenure as the president’s spokeswoman, will become Mrs. Trump’s chief of staff, replacing Lindsay Reynolds, who resigned, according a statement from the first lady’s office.
I am not sure why this is happening now, except that maybe Trump thinks he can keep his ship from sinking by rearranging the deck chairs.
And in case you have any residual hope that this press secretary might be a tad more trustworthy than the last press secretary let me dispel that notion with exhibit A:

Yeah, she is definitely part of the cult.
Oh, and there is also this from CNN:
Discussing the media’s treatment of Trump, CNN’s Chris Cuomo said on “Cuomo Prime Time” Wednesday night that Trump would not be as strongly criticized “if he didn’t lie.”
“He doesn’t lie. Guess who lies? The press lies. And don’t take it from me — take it from Jim Comey,” Kayleigh McEnany said, referencing the former FBI director.
“You don’t think this President has lied to the American people?” Cuomo asked.
“No, I don’t think the President has lied,” she replied, before accusing without evidence some news networks of “lying to the American people.”
Oh, and there is also this.

Yep. she’s a birther.
Now I see why Trump likes her so much.
Well, I certainly hope she brought her knee pads to her new job.
