AZ Republic’s Trump hatred affects WH SPOX coverage 

Stephanie Grisham new White House spokesperson has Arizona roots

It took two in-tandem reporters at the Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic to do a hatchet job on President Trump’s new White House press secretary. Rather than giving kudos to Stephanie Grisham, First Lady Melania Trump’s communications director, who has been tapped for the White House press job, the newspaper goes full force to undercut her.

Previously, Grisham forged an extensive resume interacting with Arizona media during her pre-White House years.

Taking to Twitter, Melania Trump enthusiastically announced Sarah Sanders’ replacement. Sanders announced her intention to leave the post weeks ago.

I am pleased to announce @StephGrisham45 will be the next @PressSec & Comms Director! She has been with us since 2015 – @potus & I can think of no better person to serve the Administration & our country. Excited to have Stephanie working for both sides of the @WhiteHouse. #BeBest

The failing newspaper, known by a variety of unflattering monikers — having earned them all — couldn’t restrain itself, headlining its coverage, “Stephanie Grisham, new White House press secretary, had controversial Arizona career.”

Her “controversial career” included working as spokesperson for the Arizona Attorney General and the GOP majority at the Arizona House of Representatives, following which she was involved with the statewide Trump campaign and after the 2016 election she was part of the transition team. Grisham has been integral to the president’s national appearances and rallies.

Rather than expressing pride that an eminently well qualified woman with local roots, was selected for the top White House press job as a senior administration official, Yvonne Wingett Sanchez and Ronald Hansen, disgracefully earned their keep with snappish coverage. The newspaper even saw fit to provide details on Grisham’s marriage and divorce.

Working directly for President Trump makes this accomplished woman and single mother of two sons a Neanderthal by the local newspaper’s standards.

Anthropological studies, however, indicate Neanderthals had an upright posture. The homeless Arizona Republic, in serious decline due to its lack of substance and dedication to insulting its remaining readers, continues to hemorrhage subscriptions. It is so weak, it is barely able to stand.

Seeing Red AZ enthusiastically congratulates Stephanie Grisham, the nation’s 32nd person and fourth woman to hold the post of presidential press secretary since it was created in 1929.

    Hiring Stephanie Grisham for this key role is a very astute move on the part of the president. She is quick witted and understands the importance of communicating the right message in the right way. I saw her in action at the state legislature and was very impressed…along with many others. I wish her continued success as she plays a major role in Pres. Trump’s administration and through the 2020 reelection campaign.

    All good points, especially with regards to the agenda driven “reporting” of Wingnut-Sanchez and Hanson. Along these lines from yesterday’s American Thinker, a must read link for those of us concerned about the collapse of the free press so accurately described in Mark Levin’s new best seller “Unfreedom of the Press”.

      Just finished reading the linked article you provided. It’s an excellent assessment of root cause of the death of journalism. The author questions who would major in a dying career path. I have wondered the same thing, specifically why any sensible parents would foot the bill for their kids to end up as indoctrinated, unemployable and jobless. ASU’s Cronkite School of Journalism stands as a beacon to the abyssal failure of leftism.

    It hasn’t taken long for the Lefties to latch on to the fact that she was present as a witness to the DOC execution of prisoner Wood back in 2014. Tom Horne initially weaseled out on making a statement, after it was reported that the execution was “botched”.

    Meanwhile,
    Here’s the most recent example of how members of Congress put themselves in compromising situations, which are then used to manipulate and blackmail them.

    Congressman Duncan Hunter (R)(CA)

    The allegations indicate that he was very busy.

      Tomorrow, June 27, will mark the 3rd anniversary of the infamous meeting on the tarmac at Sky Harbor between Bill Clinton and
      Loretta Lynch.

      Bill remains free to jet around the world, collecting currency in any form. Loretta, on the other hand, is under protection.

      What does any of this have to do with the topic?
      Duncan Hunter,Jr. is irrelevant and all executions are required to have witnesses. The concoction that was used was not mixed by AG Tom Horne, it was the fault of the provider of the drugs that were used. Personally, I think lethal injections are too easy a death for heinous murderers. They should suffer the same fate in the exact same manner of their victims,

    Congratulations to Stephanie Grisham!!

    This has-been of a newspaper is so consumed with its hatred of the president of the United States, that it permeates every iota of its waning existence. How pathetic! We cancelled our subscription years ago, but from time to time I scan a copy that occasionally floats around the office. No one admits that it’s theirs. Too embarrassed, I would imagine.
