Donald Trump’s first White House press secretary Sean Spicer was so awful, he’s still remembered for his lies about the size of Trump’s inauguration crowd. Trump’s second White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was even worse, to the point that a restaurant once refused to serve her and her family.
Trump’s third White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham was on the job for ten months and she held zero press briefings. The job could have been held by a rotten potato and the result would have been the same. We’re soon going to be looking back at Grisham’s tenure as the good old days, because at least we never had to hear from her.
Donald Trump’s fourth White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany has already demonstrated, through her hilariously failed stint at CNN and her recent tenure as Trump’s campaign press secretary, that she’s even more dishonest than Spicer and even more of a jerk than Huckabee Sanders. She’s also a racist birther to boot. But there’s another reason why we’re going to come to despise her so much.
Grisham literally wasn’t doing the job. She was just a placeholder, an excuse not to have press briefings. The only reason Donald Trump’s new Chief of Staff Mark Meadows would make a change like this is that he intends for McEnany to actually hold briefings of some kind. We’re all going to end up wishing Grisham was still on the job, her status as a rotten potato notwithstanding.
