Trump’s New Press Secretary Is Far Worse Than Sarah Huckabee Sanders
If you thought President Donald Trump couldn’t find anyone worse than Sarah Huckabee to replace her as White House Press Secretary, think again.
Hours after one of their reporters filed a hard-hitting expose showing a powerful politician had used taxpayer resources for campaign purposes, the Arizona Capitol Times received an email: The seats from which they had covered the state legislature for nearly half a century would be given to another news outlet.
The email was sent by Stephanie Grisham, President Trump’s new White House press secretary.
The paper’s editor, Jim Small, said the timing was obvious.
“It was irrefutable when we published that story and within hours, literally a matter of two hours, we had our credentials pulled,” Small said, according to The Hill.
The incident was just one of a series of hard-edged tactics Grisham employed in Arizona — and it may be instructive of the approach she takes in Washington. On Tuesday, Trump promoted Grisham to replace departing White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
Grisham did not return an email seeking comment.
