Stephanie Grisham’s book says Trump told Putin he would be tough on him “for the cameras”
Stephanie Grisham’s extensive new memoir I’ll Take Your Questions Now made headlines even before the book was officially released. There is a touch of irony to the title as the former White House press secretary never did an on-camera briefing for reporters.
Among the explosive allegations in the book, Ms. Grisham writes that the former president told Russian President Vladimir Putin that he would do a harsh act in front of the cameras before the two spoke privately.
Ms. Grisham claimed she also claimed her ex-boss called her from Air Force One to insist that his penis was not shaped like a mushroom as claimed by former porn star Stormy Daniels.
Additionally, the book claims that First Lady Melania Trump had her own way of avenging her husband – by having a handsome U.S. Marine accompany her to official events.
Mr. Trump called Ms. Grisham “angry and bitter” about his former press adviser’s book.
In several statements, Mr Trump said Ms. Grisham’s “untrue” claims were the result of a disgruntled employee who “didn’t have what it takes” after a breakup, in an obvious reference to her breakup with another White House official, Max Müller.
Advance copies of the book were obtained from the Washington Post and the New York Times prior to its October 5 publication.

Trump wanted to permanently expel the press from the White House
The president’s disgust for the press was so great that he wanted to ban it from the White House altogether – inspired by a visit to North Korea, according to Grisham’s book.
As reported by the New York Times, Ms. Grisham claims that after Mr. Trump’s visit to North Korea, she was tasked with removing the press as much as possible from the president’s orbit. “I’ve researched different places where we could place them next to the press room,” she writes. “Every time the President asked me about my progress on this matter, I let him know that I was still working on options.”

The Trump White House had a culture of “casual dishonesty”
Lies and deception were part of the White House culture during Donald Trump’s presidency, claims former press secretary Stephanie Grisham in the new book.
Aside from shocking revelations about the former president’s personal life and temperament in the new Tell-All book, Ms. Grisham also revealed the insides of the White House staff, saying that a culture of “casual dishonesty” has been forged.
“Incidental dishonesty seeped through the White House as if it were in the air conditioner,” writes Ms. Grisham in “I’ll Take Your Questions Now: What I Saw at the Trump White House,” according to the Washington Post, which received one early copy of the book.
The book, due to be released Tuesday next week, is set to reveal the rifts in the Trump family, the former president’s behavior with his staff, including sexist comments, and his general bad mood.

Ms. Grisham also served in the east wing of the White House as the press secretary and chief of staff for then First Lady Melania Trump.

In the book received by the Washington Post, the author describes how the two tried to get involved in the meeting of the President and First Lady with the monarch during a visit by Donald Trump to the UK – a move that would have been a breach Protocol.

Grisham is too “chicken sh * t” to tell Melania of Trump’s “unusual interest” in young employees, the report claims
Earlier excerpts from Stephanie Grisham’s book in the New York Times and the Washington Post claimed that Trump was “obsessed” with a “very attractive” young female press secretary.
Grisham claims Trump asked that the Air Force Ons employee be brought to his cabin so he could “look at her ass.”
On another occasion, he reportedly insisted that it be “shown on television. Keep them happy, promote them ”.
A new report in the Daily Mail, quoting “a source who saw the book,” said Grisham almost told the first lady about the ex-president’s behavior.
“I thought if she said a little word to him about it, she could stop it. But I could never bring myself to say anything, ”she wrote.
But she was too “chicke nsh * t” or thought it was not her “place or business”.
