In her new book, former White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham describe old President Donald Trumpthe son-in-law of Jared kushner like “Rasputin in a fitted suit”. Grisham’s book, I will answer your questions now, comes out Tuesday.
She recalls that when it was decided that Trump should speak to the nation about Covid-19, that Kushner had worked with Trump’s speechwriter and “dictated” what Trump would say.
Katie Miller, assistant to the vice president, was married to the speechwriter Stephen miller. So she went to Stephen’s office and sat there as Jared Kushner frantically dictated the address to Stephen, who wrote something, “Grisham wrote, adding that she was more and more” outraged ” by Kushner’s behavior.
“He wasn’t an expert on any of these things – the border closures, the economic consequences, the health consequences – but he alone seemed to decide the country’s first actions to deal with one of the most devastating crises. of our history, ”she wrote. .
Grisham’s book also made headlines earlier this week for what she said about Trump.
Grisham noted working under Trump was “terrifying” because of the anger he often directed at her and others.
“When I started to see how his temper wasn’t just for shock value or the cameras… I started to regret my decision to go to the West Wing,” she wrote.
Grisham admits that she “should have spoken more” and says that ultimately, “pretty much” everyone on Trump’s team “has ended up exhausting their welcome with the president.”
Trump, in a statement to The Hill, criticized Grisham’s memoir, calling it “very angry and bitter.”
“She became very angry and bitter after her break-up and over time she was rarely invoked or even considered. She was having big problems and we thought she had to sort it out on her own. Now, like everyone else, she gets paid by a radical left-wing editor to say bad and wrong things, ”Trump said in a statement Tuesday.
