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.
