FoxNews.com reports that
White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said Monday there won’t be traditional press briefings “right now” because grandstanding reporters used the event as an opportunity to “get famous.”
“He’s his own best spokesperson… also, he’s the most accessible president in history,” Grisham said of President Trump on “Fox & Friends.”
Grisham was then asked if Trump’s frequent gaggles are the new form of press briefing, which previously consisted of press secretaries Sean Spicer and Sarah Sanders taking questions from sometimes-hostile reporters in the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room.
“Ultimately, if the president decided it’s something we should do, we can do that, but right now he’s doing just fine and to be honest the briefings had become a lot of just theater,” she said. “I think that a lot of reporters were doing it to… get famous.”
“They’re writing books now, they’re all getting famous off of this presidency, so I think it’s great what we’re doing now,” Grisham added.
Grisham didn’t name names, but CNN White House reporter Jim Acosta has emerged as a household name for constantly sparring with members of the Trump administration when they are made available to the press.
Last year, Acosta was briefly banned from the White House after he engaged in a contentious back-and-forth with Trump and refused to pass the microphone to a female White House aide. He has since written a book about his time covering Trump.
CNN’s April Ryan, another White House reporter, also scuffled with Spicer and Sanders on a regular basis and wrote a book about it. ABC News White House reporter Jonathan Karl has a book about covering the Trump White House scheduled for 2020.
“Fox & Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade then asked how Trump reacted to the way Spicer and Sanders were treated by critics such as NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” which pokes fun at members of the administration with unflattering impersonations on a regular basis.
“Absolutely, I think it’s so important that the spokesperson for the president can adequately speak to his policies and get his message out there. I think the president saw that that’s not what was happening,” Grisham said. “It had become, again, theater, and they weren’t being good to his people. He doesn’t like that. He’s very loyal to his people, and he put a stop to it.”
Do you want to know why the Main Stream Media hate the President and act like petulant little children whenever they are in the same room or even within 100 feet of him?
It is because Donald J. Trump is not a Professional Politician.
He is a Citizen Statesman.
He is an American Businessman, a self-made billionaire who, even before he became the Leader of the Free World, was used to dealing with all kinds of people in the Business World, from high-powered executives like himself to insolent little know-it-alls, who believed themselves to be smarter than he is and were determined to take him down, like the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party known as the Main Stream Media.
Americans are now living in a time when the Main Stream Media’s blatant propaganda is no longer believed at face value, as the evidence which refutes it is appearing in the live videos and photographs being shared on Facebook and other Social Media.
Average Americans are winning the war against the “New Fascism” of the Tyranny of the Minority by the sharing of information through Social Media.
24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all of the Liberal Main Stream Media Reporters and Political Pundits, both ‘Professional” and self-proclaimed, continue to lash out at anything and everything that the President says and does, in a mass hissy fit, resembling a Kindergarten Class that didn’t get their afternoon nap.
When they cannot find a story which they can alter to fit their Liberal Narrative, they make one up.
Absolutely nothing that the Democrats and their minions, the MSM, have thrown at President Trump has stopped him from executing a masterful performance, as proven by the approval rate of 52% found at http://RasmussenReports.com, a higher rate than at this same time in the Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm).
So, why do average Americans continue to stand by this man?
We have an AMERICAN President again!
President Donald J. Trump is one of US.
America was formed by men seeking FREEDOM. She grew and prospered because of an indomitable will and spirit forged through the Refiner’s Fire, guided by the common-sense words, inscribed in our Constitution, and administered through a Constitutional Republic. Our nation’s largesse and strength comes through the actions and character of her citizens, not through the usurpation of power by professional politicians, who has long since lost touch with their constituency.
Obama’s attempt to “radically change” our nation into a Third World Barrio was met with resistance, not because of professional politicians, but, because of the defiance of the American People, who love their country.
It was this Defiant Spirit which caused Americans to elect American Entrepreneur and Businessman Donald J. Trump as our 45th President.
And, President Trump recognizes whom he owes his Presidency to….because he possesses that Defiant Spirit, as well.
On November 8th, 2016, average Americans proved that America’s Heritage of God and Country is still alive and well in the hearts and minds of the overwhelming majority of the citizens in this country, even those who had dropped out of the workforce.
A President’s role, if he wants to be viewed positively as a world leader, is to work to restore America to a position of strength, both both in foreign and domestic policy.
President-elect Trump understands the mandate that he has been given and has served Americans by making deals which continue to help to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN .
The stopping of daily Press Briefings was not only smart…it was NECESSARY.
The majority of reporters who attended were not attending as objective news reporters, they were attending as self-aggrandizing POLITICAL OPERATIVES.
Through his stopping of the daily Press Briefings, President Trump did something that no other United States President has ever done.
It was the day that the Main Stream Media found out what it is like to be held accountable for their actions.
Until He Comes,
