Grisham out as West Wing press secretary without having held a briefing

Source: CNN

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham is leaving the job without ever having briefed the press. CNN has learned she is returning to the East Wing as first lady Melania Trump's chief of staff as President Donald Trump's new chief of staff Mark Meadows shakes up the communications team in the West Wing.

Meadows is currently considering several candidates for the press secretary job, including Trump campaign spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany. The new chief of staff is also considering hiring Alyssa Farah, the current spokeswoman for the Defense Department, for a communications role, among others, two sources with knowledge of the situation told CNN.

Farah has held several roles in the Trump administration. After leaving her job as the spokeswoman for the House Freedom Caucus to become Vice President Mike Pence's press secretary, she moved to the Pentagon last August. But this would be her first position in the West Wing. Farah has remained close with Meadows since her days at the Freedom Caucus.

Grisham, who still speaks with first lady Melania Trump on a daily basis, is returning to where she has spent the majority of her time in the administration, the East Wing. Grisham did not immediately respond to a CNN request for comment.

1. Why

Does Melania Trump need a chief of staff, she does not actually do anything.

5. Someone has to actually

perform the act of deflection denial and dismissal.
Melania missed her BFF.

That just a guess.

17. Maybe Grisham is

Maleria's driver, so we do not know where she gets her "kidney treatments"?? Seems that Grisham is excellent at "keeping a low profile" After all, who knew she was supposed to be press secretary?? We suffered through scowling Sarah Hucksterbee Sanders, then - nothing.

3. Isn't Trump the de facto Press Secretary?

Perhaps Meadows realizes that isn't working out as well as they had imagined.

7. LOL...fired without giving a Press Briefing?

Even Scaramucci gave a press briefing...and he was fired before his job even officially started. As for Kayleigh McEnany, I believe that she is the stable genius on the left of Trish Regan in this video:

I tend to think of Ms. McEnany as one of the dumbest people ever to earn a law degree. Do not call her an airhead though, as you would be insulting the air.

9. Yeah, it'll be Kayleigh for sure. Trump wants a hot-looking dumbshit....

to feed the needs of all the old white men in the Villages (FL) and red states. He thinks having a loud, brash liar like himself, better looking for sure, will save his fast-failing presidency, by flashing those gams, dyed blonde hair and sprakly teeth.

What will Melania say when she finds Kayleigh under the Resolute Desk with Trump's DNA on her face? I wonder........

13. How bad to you have to be to get fired from a job where you don't do anything?

I wonder why they are even looking for a replacement!

How do you even find someone whose job it is to do nothing?

Maybe they'll give it to Ivanka.

24. "Grisham did not immediately respond to a CNN request for comment."

Given that she never held a briefing, that sentence made me LOL. (She did issue a written statement later, tho.)
