First Lady announced New WH Press Secretary with this tweet” on June 25.
“I am pleased to announce Stephanie Grisham will be the next [WH] Press Secretary and Communications Director. She has been with us since 2015, and I can think of no better person to serve the Administration and our country. Excited to have Stephanie working for both sides of the White House.”
Ms. Grisham has been the Communications Director for the first lady, and outgoing Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders had this to say about Grisham:
“During the campaign, she developed a good relationship with the president, and that carried through. She has developed a great amount of trust from both the president and the first lady, which is a pretty high commodity here.”
Thanks to Sarah Huckabee Sanders, we know now that Ms. Grisham has gained a great amount of respect from the president. Now, let’s hope that Ms. Grisham and the Press work together to gain one another’s trust and respect, something that did not happen between Sara Huckabee Sanders and the Press. The question remains: can anyone who represents the president be honest and transparent in dealing with the Press – and still hold on to the president’s support? Like the president often says, we’ll have to wait and see.
