In an interview with Fox & Friends, Grisham’s hosts gushed over President Donald Trump by remarking that “he is the best communicator” and, therefore, doesn’t really need anyone to speak for him.
“He is his own best spokesperson, that’s true, and the most successful president in history as all of the media knows,” Grisham responded.
Ainsley Earhardt moved on by noting how former press secretary Sean Spicer was lampooned on Saturday Night Live, saying to Grisham “you will never have that moment” now that briefings have stopped. Grisham confirmed that briefings won’t return any time soon, and she parroted her hosts by adding that “the briefings have become a lot of theater and I think a lot of reporters were doing it to get famous.”
“They weren’t being good to his people,” Grisham continued. “[Trump] doesn’t like that. He is very loyal to his people and he put a stop to it.”
“They weren’t being good to his people?”
The press was asking questions, that is their job.
And the only reason it became confrontational is that every single one of Trump’s press people has been caught lying to the press on multiple occasions.
The person who is being unkind to the White House press folks is not a member of the press just doing their job, it is the guy living in the White House who keeps urging them to lie on his behalf.
It is simply pathetic that this administration is so thin skineed and secretive that they cannot deal with questions from the American press.
