Former WH press spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham calls Trump offended and “horrible” in a brand new e-book
Former White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said working under former President Donald Trump was “terrifying” because he often directed anger at her and others.
“When I started to see that his temper wasn’t just about the shock value or the cameras … I started to regret my decision to go to the West Wing,” Grisham writes in I’ll Take Your Questions Now, a planned one Memoir published October 5, according to the New York Times, which received a copy of her manuscript.
Grisham recalls Trump targeting many times Pat Cipollone, who served as a member of his legal advisor.
“He didn’t like it when they told him things he wanted to do were unethical or illegal. So he would yell at her. But then he usually listened. And then yell at her again later, ”she wrote.
Grisham admits that she “should have said more” and finally says that “Pretty much” all the members of Trump’s team “ended up exhausting their reception at the president.”
Grisham did not give a single briefing during her nine months as the press secretary. She resigned on January 6, the day a mob of Trump supporters attacked the United States Capitol on the false assumption that the election had been stolen.
