Stephanie Grisham’s book details Trump’s ‘terrifying’ character
On the contrary: “After the Stormy Daniels story and all the allegations that followed other women,” Ms. Grisham wrote, “I felt Ms. Trump was basically unleashed.
The first lady, she says, found ways to omit her husband from photos and tweets, and made a point of showing up on the arm of a handsome military aide. Ms Trump, who is closed even to her closest associates, begins to open up to Ms Grisham, telling him that she doesn’t believe her husband’s denials or those of her former fixer, Michael Cohen – “Oh, s’ please, are you kidding me? “she asks at one point.” i don’t believe any of that, “adds the first lady, using a curse. , contains a lot of profanity.)
Ms Grisham also attempts to explain why Ms Trump was wearing a jacket that read “I Really Don’t Care, Do U?” To visit a Texan camp for migrant children, but focuses more on the president’s reaction: “What the hell were you thinking?” he asked Ms Grisham and his wife in the Oval Office, before asking an aide to tweet a cover story: “You just tell them you’re talking to” media, he told the group.
The first lady has disengaged over time, writes Ms Grisham, to the point of falling asleep on election night. She was overseeing a carpet photoshoot on Jan.6 and declined to comment publicly on what was going on on Capitol Hill. (For Ms Grisham, it was the last straw. She quit later that day.)

“She would always say, ‘Let me think about it’ or ‘Let’s see what the West Wing is going to do,'” Ms Grisham wrote, “which meant no. And when exactly did she decide to start following the West Wing’s lead? “
Demands the expulsion of the White House press
Ms Grisham says a trip to North Korea inspired Mr Trump to ask him to look for ways to permanently expel the press from the James S. Brady briefing room.
