    Stephanie Grisham is stepping down as White House press secretary - a role she never really played, since she never held a press briefing.

    Stephing Down

    On Tuesday, the White House announced that Grisham will now serve as First Lady Melania Trump’s chief of staff and spokeswoman. Grisham had been working at the White House post since July 1, 2019, replacing her predecessor Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and was US President Donald Trump’s third press secretary.

    During her tenure as press secretary, Grisham did not hold a single press briefing. She instead dispensed information to reporters via interviews, written statements and social media. Grisham has not yet commented on her departure.

    Grisham’s exit comes amid efforts by POTUS’ newly minted Chief of Staff Mark Meadows to reform the president's communications department. CNN and the New York Times have reported that Trump's campaign spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany will now take over as his new press secretary.

    How will we miss her?

      Undo Retweet

      Everybody knows US President Donald Trump’s favorite soapbox: Twitter. In a shocking turn of events, Trump is now going against the social media platform via executive order.

    • Trump's favourite means of communication and weapon of choice, Twitter, has turned back on him recently, after the platform labelled one of his posts as containing falsehood. The president soon voiced his anger about the move - in a tweet, of course - threatening to shut down all social media hushing conservative opinions.

      COVID Chutzpah

      As the number of American fatalities from COVID-19 nears 100,000, US President Donald Trump is praising himself for doing such a great job on handling the novel coronavirus crisis. Somehow, 100,000 deaths translate to him doing great - does he know the death toll is still rising?
