During a White House event, White House Press Secretary, who has never held a press conference, Stephanie Grisham told a news outlet that officials from the Obama administration left discouraging notes for the Trump administration.
Grisham claimed: “every office was filled with Obama books” and notes that read “you will fail” and “you’re not going to make it.”
After former White House officials called out Ms. Grisham for her bald faced lies, she clarified her statements and said to the notes allegedly left for the Trump administration applied “to the lower press office.”
“In fact, I had a lovely note left for me in the East Wing, and I tracked the woman down and thanked her,” she said in a statement to The Hill. “I was talking specifically about our experience in the lower press office – nowhere else.”
“I don’t know why everyone is so sensitive!” Grisham added. “At the time we saw it as kind of a prank, and something that always happened. We were so busy trying to learn where the bathrooms were and how to turn on the lights, it wasn’t that big of a deal.”The Hill:
