I just stumbled across the following statement on CNN, attributed to White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham: "I worked with John Kelly, and he was totally unequipped to handle the genius of our great President."
She is a lickspittle. You'll remember Trump not like liking a reporter's tough questions, Stephanie Grisham trying to grab the microphone out of his hand, he pulled away backwards, and she sat down and pouted.
For that Trump claimed he assaulted Stephanie, and revoked his press credentials.
Judge orders White House to restore press pass of reporter involved in confrontation
Washington Post, By Paul Farhi
A federal judge on Tuesday reversed the White House’s decision to suspend a reporter’s press credentials, granting a motion that will restore him to his beat.
The ruling was a victory for Brian Karem, a White House correspondent for Playboy magazine and a CNN political analyst, who had been suspended by officials for 30 days in mid-August because of his role in a verbal confrontation with a former White House aide at a White House event on July 11.
He was the second reporter suspended in the past nine months, a step that appears to be without recent precedent before President Trump’s administration. Trump banned more than a dozen news organizations, including The Washington Post, from his campaign events in 2015 and 2016 but said he wouldn’t do so if he became president.
Karem, who has been outspoken in his opposition to Trump, sued White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham and the president last month. He argued that the suspension, which began Aug. 16, was arbitrary and violated his constitutional rights of free speech and due process.
