That is a lie.

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham claimed on Tuesday that departing former aides to President Barack Obama left notes saying “you will fail” and “you aren’t going to make it” for the incoming staff of Donald Trump.

Former Obama aides quickly denied Grisham’s claim, reacting to a tweet from a CNN reporter that Grisham had said during an earlier radio interview, “Every office was filled with Obama books and we had notes left behind that said ‘you will fail,’ ‘you aren’t going to make it.'”

“This is another bald faced lie,” Obama’s national security adviser Susan Rice wrote on Twitter.

“This is an outrageous lie,” former senior director of the National Security Council Jon Wolfsthal tweeted. “I know. I handed over the nuclear office at the (National Security Council). Shameless and disgusting.”

One senior Obama aide who once held Grisham’s job wrote to his successor that he was rooting for him, according to a photograph obtained by NBC News. Obama White House press secretary Josh Earnest left a note for Sean Spicer, Trump’s first press secretary, telling him that his selection by Trump for the role was “a credit to your skills and work ethic.”

“And, because your work is essential to the success of our democracy, it is not hard for me to set aside my political views, and genuinely root for you to success in this role,” Earnest wrote.

What an ugly, and despicable lie to tell. 

Does this nasty bitch really expect us to believe that Donald Trump has kept this secret for three years? 

Because we all know there is no way he could do that. 

This is the thing about Donald Trump.

It is not only that he is a habitual liar, but that he also inspires, and may even require, that the people around him lie as well. 

This is why we simply cannot give any credibility to ANYTHING that comes out of this White House. 

Update: Grisham has now partially walked these allegations back. 

Courtesy of The Guardian:

After the backlash Grisham walked back from her initial remarks. She issued a statement saying the controversy was “silly” but did not expand on why she had made the claims.

“[I] certainly wasn’t implying every office had that issue,” Grisham said.

“I was talking specifically (and honestly) about our experience in the lower press office – nowhere else. I don’t know why everyone is so sensitive!”

That, by the way, is also a lie.

    As mentioned, why didn’t trump whine about this THREE years ago, are they just figuring out that piece of furniture, widely known as a DESK, is to be used as a workspace?

    trump is a magnet for the worst in our society.

    bye the way, Miss Grisham, we are still waiting for your apology for calling anyone that criticizes trump, “human scum”. Obviously you have been hanging out with it too long and it has decayed your soul.

      Trump and everyone connected to him are human cesspools.

    I don’t mean any disrespect but this story is two or three days old. Why are you just now commenting on it?

    • Gryphen November 21, 2019 at 5:46 am

      This article is only two days old and the story is still being covered by news outlets.

      There has also been a lot of news lately, and I am working on all of this without a staff.

      I felt it was important to illustrate that essentially everybody connected to his White House is an unrepentant liar.

        ‘Everybody connected to his White House ARE unrepentant Reptilian liar$.’ = showing no regret for one’s wrongdoings.

    Strange that I can’t find one passage in the bible stating that lying, cheating, and stealing is A-Okay if you’re in politics.

    Trump has no integrity and he has surrounded himself with people of the same cloth.

    President Obama left a generous and sincere message of encouragement to Donald Trump when he left office. President Obama behaved with grace and maturity even though he had been the target of Trump’s birther campaign and criticisms for years. Other presidents had done the same before. It seemed to be a tradition.

    I cannot see Cry-Baby Trump doing anything remotely as graceful when he leaves office or even leaving gracefully when the time comes. I fully expect him to stir up trouble if he’s forced out or loses the next elections. He will never accept being defeated.

      I expect to see $Hitgibbon Dung all over the White House, that leaves a permanent stain.

    “I was talking specifically (and honestly) about our experience in the lower press office – nowhere else. I don’t know why everyone is so sensitive!”
    She just started in the press office, before she worked for the third porn wife, so if they are just finding the notes, is she telling us that they haven’t cleaned the office in THREE years ?

    if not why is she whining about it now, running out of things to attack the Obama with?

    Students have staged a sit-in at the Syracuse student wellness center since Nov. 13 with a list of demands that includes the expulsion of students for hate crimes and stronger diversity training for students and staff.

    The university’s international students also have listed concerns, and about 100 law and medical students marched Wednesday to show support for the wellness center protesters, according to Syracuse.com

    And what are her qualifications for being press secretary? We have yet to learn as to whether she actually worked as a journalist or has any degrees or certificates where she would learn about journalistic standards.

      She can LIE and sell her soul, only qualifications necessary in trump WH

    She was lying of course. And why I’ll never understand. Does she think that the very admirable and honorable people who worked in the Obama White House are anything like the slime that has replaced them? When GWB took over after the Clintons, Republicans ranted on and on about how the furniture had been stolen and the White House trashed. All lies. Republicans have always been very eager to lie. Just seems sad to me.
