Trumpworld’s Stephanie Grisham wrote a secret memoir & it sounds explosive

Trump Meets Prime Minister Leo Varadkar of Ireland

Stephanie Grisham wasn’t the most well-known name of the Trump “administration,” but she did have some kind of profile. For the bulk of the Trump years, Grisham was Melania Trump’s chief of staff and oft-quoted spokesperson. Grisham left the impression (with me) that she and Melania were birds of a feather: petty, thin-skinned and pretty stupid. In 2019, Grisham moved from the East Wing to the West Wing when Trump appointed her to the White House press secretary and communications director positions (a two-for-one deal, apparently). She also refused to do any press briefings, formally or informally, but she loved to go on Fox News. You get the idea. I also remember that she was one of the White House senior staff who “resigned in protest” immediately following the January 6th insurrection this year. She quit two weeks before her job was over and pretended that she was making some kind of moral stand. Anyway, Grisham has written a memoir and people are WORRIED.

Stephanie Grisham has quietly written a top-secret memoir of her four years in Donald Trump’s White House, and a publishing source says she’ll reveal “surprising new scandals.” The book — “I’ll Take Your Questions Now: What I Saw in The Trump White House” — will be published Oct. 5 by Harper Collins.

A former West Wing colleague of Grisham’s tells Axios: “When I heard this, all I could think about was Stephanie surrounded by a lake of gasoline, striking a match with a grin on her face.”

A source close to the publication told Axios: “Grisham knows where all the bodies are buried because she buried a lot of them herself.” The source says Grisham “has receipts … she was a press person and it was her job to make sure she knew what was happening.”

Grisham is the only person to have served as a top aide to both President Trump (White House press secretary and communications director) and first lady Melania Trump (chief of staff). She knows the family well and will shed new light on their dynamics with her first-person account, the sources said.

Melania Trump guarded her privacy intensely and trusted almost nobody during her time as first lady. Grisham, as her chief of staff, was one of the very few allowed into her inner sanctum. She saw another side of the Trumps — in the residence — that most staffers never got to see.

Until now, only a handful of people knew of the book’s existence. Grisham has deliberately kept a low profile since she resigned on Jan. 6. The book is heavily embargoed, with code names used for the project. And there’s been a dummy Amazon link.

Grisham’s former West Wing colleague tells Swan: “There isn’t enough water on earth to contain the fire she could set to all of Trump world, including parts like the first lady’s orbit, which not many people are in a position to illuminate. It’s hard to articulate how much anxiety this is going to cause.”

I still have the same opinion about all of the Trump World memoirs: f–k ‘em. All of those f–knuts knew exactly what kind of man Donald Trump was and is. All of ‘em knew that Melania Trump is trash as well. Spare us all the accounts of just when you realized you were working for a racist predator and his enabling wife. Now, all that being said, I will cover the dramas and excerpts from Grisham’s book. That sh-t is gossip and I imagine Grisham does have some good tea. I just won’t have any sympathy or pity for her while I’m enjoying her tea.

    This sounds like a lot of hype for a nothing book that will have no new revelations.

  2. Bookie says:

    I’m not going to give her a dime, but I will eagerly read every excerpt I can find online.

    • MF1 says:

      Me too. Kaiser, we appreciate that you’ll cover this story because it means we can get all the tea without giving Stephanie Grisham a single dollar.

    • Golly Gee says:

      All of these memoir authors were morally bankrupt enough to do Trump’s bidding, and are now quite happy to make money off of writing about it, without even a twinge of conscience.

  3. MerlinsMom1018 says:

    She can spill all the secrets she wants, she can dig up the bodies, she can show every receipt she has it ain’t gonna make even a blip on the radar of the MAGAotts…

  4. WingKingdom says:

    Ugh, this “former colleague” is clearly her publicist. There’s really nothing left to say. We know things that are unbelievably awful (Kushner said let COVID spread in the blue states) and somehow… nothing happened. If I hear anything more about what those f$&kers got away with, I’m going to scream.

  5. Jay says:

    Ugh, NOPE. Nobody associated with these grifters deserves our attention or money.

  6. Truthiness says:

    I would love some details from Grisham on the faux Melania but won’t get my hopes up.

  7. Louise177 says:

    I’m baffled why anyone thinks this book will be scandalous. She’s a big Trump supporter. It’s just going to be how great Trump and Melania are.

  8. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Who knows for absolute certain she’s even spilling? And if she is spilling, will it favor monsters? I’ll not buy into this until there’s something to buy into. And Kaiser’s right. This is but another complicit deviant.

  9. AMA1977 says:

    IDGAF what this horrible person has to say. She was perfectly fine lying to America day after day on behalf of that bloated orange monstrosity, and she gleefully kneecapped journalism by refusing to answer questions from the press pool in favor of the “administration’s” preferred bootlicking media outlets. Kids in cages, mocking the disabled, the Muslim ban, the daily debasement of civility, attempting to sic the Justice Department on perceived “enemies,” “sh!thole countries,” rampant grifting, the complete and utter dereliction of duty that was the Trump COVID response (and so much more that I have rage-blocked or can’t remember because the onslaught of horror was never-ending), none of that mattered to her and she was happy to take the paycheck and spread the lies. So miss me with her “explosive” revelations now. STFD and STFU, STEPHANIE.

  10. Valerie says:

    Anything that causes the Trumps anxiety is fine by me. But I doubt it will be as explosive as they say. We know what they are.

  11. sassafras says:

    I will check it out at the library which sends a message to my Southern library board and limits the money this person receives in royalties.

  12. Sunnyjyl says:

    No “tea and sympathy.” Ahahahahahahaha!

    I’ll seriously be surprised if she dishes dirt on the tRump family. I will eat it with a ladle if she does, however.

  13. Pinellas Pixie says:

    Didn’t she have to sign an NDA? I thought nearly everyone in DC had to sign one. She won’t violate it, she knows who she’s dealing with. I would love to think that she parted on bad terms with them and is telling all but I’m not sure that’s the case. I guess there’s always a chance that she took both jobs just so she could write a blockbuster memoir or something. IDK.

    I will say thank you, Kaiser, for reading this when it comes out and excerting, I think it will be a good read.

  14. The Recluse says:

    Hahahahahahahaa! No honor among scoundrels and thieves.
    I hope Melania and Drumpf are sweating bullets.

  15. Alex says:

    Melania is cut from the same shitty, greedy, amoral, duplicitous, hateful, racist fabric.
    She is the modern Leona Helmsley.
