Kayleigh McEnany Replaces Stephanie Grisham As Press Secretary…

It appears new White House chief of staff Mark Meadows is making a few communications changes. White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham will be returning to the East Wing as First Lady Melania Trump’s chief-of-staff.  Kayleigh McEnany will be replacing Grisham as Press Secretary.

[Politico] […] Alyssa Farah, a top Defense Department spokeswoman and former press secretary for Vice President Mike Pence, will also come aboard as the White House’s director of strategic communications.

Ben Williamson, Meadows’ former chief of staff and communications director, who will be Trump’s senior communications adviser. Farah also has a Meadows connection, previously serving as the communications director for the conservative House Freedom Caucus when Meadows, a former North Carolina lawmaker, was the caucus’s chairman.

Keep in mind that Hope Hicks returned in February as Senior advisor to President Trump on communications.  Ms. Hicks is the primary Trump-whisperer on media strategy.

    First suggestion…….

    Ask Trish Regan to come into the Pence briefing EVERY Day and ask some common sense questions.

    Such as….

    1) How many of the hospitalized COVID-19 patients have been given the Trump Cocktail?

    2) And of this hospitalized COVID-19- patients who were given the Trump Cocktail How many have recovered or been released?

    3) could you continue to provide these two stats every day going forward?

    4) For Dr. Fauci, how do you explain the fact that Dr. Oz has looked and looked and can not find a single LUPUS patient who has been on hydroxychloroquine that also tested positive for COVID-19?

    5) Mr. President can you invite Dr Zelenko, Dr. Stephanie Smith, Dr. Cardillo, Dr. Shiva and a representative from the Brazilian hospital were that had incredible success with the Trump Cocktail to attend one of the briefings and speak about their experience with this virus?

    6) Dr. Brix, is it true that if I had stage 4 cancer and was terminal prior to this virus outbreak and then tested positive for COVID-19 that my death would be recorded as a COVID-19 death?

    If yes then isn’t it a possibility that somewhere between 25%-75% of all recorded COVID-19 deaths were really due to something else?

    Start asking the right fing questions!

      Great questions, but a number of them should be asked of Fauci. For instance:
      1.Dr., the 2008 economic crisis has reportedly led to approximately 80,000 suicides over 3 years. Do your models take into account the deaths that will surely occur due to the economic devastation that will occur if the economy remains closed?
      2. If not, why not?
      3. In keeping the economy closed aren’t you just trading COVID deaths for suicide deaths?
      4. Wouldn’t a better plan be to balance the risk and projected deaths from both causes rather than ignoring one for the other.
      5. Now we have all seen how the models you have relied on have drastically overstated the infection rate and deaths in some cases five fold. Given such how do you justify relying on the models to recommend national policies that will economically harm the country for many 10s of years to come.
      6. Given that both Japanese and South Koreans live in much closer quarters than the average American, why is it that there less stringent measures have been more successful than the measures you continue to propose?
      I COULD GO ON AND ON!

      Good questions but!
      Why are they not putting those people forward in the first place?
      The good dr Fauci has nothing to offer but quarantine. It’s worthless.
      Something else going on here. Not faulting Trump, I believe the man has our interests in mind, well I know he does probably not obvious in many ways.
      Please take into consideration that the people who hate trump and us are crazy, all of them, and there is more to all this than meets the eye.
      Consider all the child trafficking, drugs and reprobates that we know of just of late. It’s getting stranger and stranger because these evil people are losing power and it means more than just the poor house. These are sick folks. I don’t think most of us have any idea just how sick they are.
      Abortions alone are a clue. Who does that, kills babies who are full term. Think about passing bills that allow that, advocating for it, innocent babies. You have to be past any human compassion.
      What we see with drugs and homeless and complete lack of compassion means something, it’s clues of a group who feel comfortable in that world. It should be a red flag for us all. Don’t discount any information coming I suspect we will see some strange stuff here shortly.

    Whoever came up with their use of the helicopter presser is a genius. The jet engines drown out the performance artists. Trump is heard clearly. Trump orchestrates the news, repeating questions for clarity, rejecting idiots, putting down fake news. And always seen as constantly doing the country’s business. To and fro.

    But they were also smart to stop that and focus on the medical crisis. Daily bringing their efforts into our living rooms. Bumping up viewership of the news networks. It’s a shame they have to deal with the attacks of the performance artists.

    It will be interesting to see how all this goes forward. And to see what they do as this daily emergency briefing fades out. And the campaign ramps back up.

      Just some info to share. I was contacted a few days ago by the Trump campaign to be interviewed by Ms. McEnany for an American Hero’s segment. Now she’s the White House Press Secretary. Wow!! I was chosen as a Trump delegate and that’s how my name was shared with the campaign. As one can imagine, I was honored beyond belief. Being in law enforcement the past 30 years, our President has restored the respect and supported law enforcement in ways I cannot explain. Pretty cool stuff… I thought it was a cool story and wanted to share with the great folks on this site.

          Hi Everyone…thank you. I was saddened to inform the campaign that I had to turn down the interview. Sorry I didn’t clarify. They wanted me to discuss the covid response, but legally I couldn’t represent my department in a political campaign. The campaign was very understanding.

          I’m in the command staff in my organization (#2) and it’s pretty well-known in my department, and City for that matter, that I’m a conservative and a huge President Trump supporter. That’s dangerous in California (L.A. County) – LoL. But rank and file law enforcement officers are huge supporters. I also had my own reservations about being a delegate, because my decision to be one can possibly ruin my chances of becoming Police Chief next year – politics. After careful consideration, for about five seconds, I decided to be a delegate and support this awesome leader. If I’m not chosen because I’m a President Trump supporter, so be it. I am a proud American who supports our President – I refuse to succumb to political pressure and I’m certainly no political puppet like certain police chiefs are in California. It’s important to me that when I look in the mirror, I can respect and like what I see. No one should ever be bullied or intimidated from supporting their President.

          I attended President Trump’s inauguration and was seated about 20 rows away on the Capital lawn – AWESOME EXPERIENCE! And also heard him speak live during law enforcement week in D.C. He was simply a rockstar, and the love shown from law enforcement in attendance was something I haven’t seen in my 30 years doing this job. The congresswoman (D) in my district provided me with the tickets to attend. She boycotted the event – sore loser – LoL. A quick funny story – during the Presidential Parade, I was invited to watch it from a high-rise condo building on Pennsylvania Avenue, In attendance was Sheriff Joe Arpaio. I had a couple glasses of wine with him, and boy what a character! A couple of partners and I have a great photo with him too. He loves his wine…lol!

          I’m still hoping I can do something for the campaign…maybe a personal testimony being a law enforcement officer and what President Trump has meant to our profession. Legally, it’s permissible if I’m off-duty and not representing my department in an official capacity. I shared this with the campaign. This would definitely have an adverse affect on my career, but who cares. There are things more important to me than titles. And honestly, I’ve had a blessed career.

          I’’ll keep you all posted, and I’ll update you from the convention about all the great patriots and leaders I meet, and all the happenings from the week’s long event. Take care and be safe. Sorry for the long post.

    I am firmly in the camp that the demmedia are their own worst enemy. If they had half a brain, they would allow Trump to be his own worst enemy. Instead, they immediately attack Trump for anything and everything. Attacked if he does, attacked if he doesn’t. They make every criticism an outrageous partisan and hypocritical attack. It plays well for the deranged, but causes everybody else to defend Trump.

    Being neutral, and honest about reporting news does not play well with the deranged, but it would allow Trump to drive away his own supporters.

    But then Journalism no longer means honest neutral reporting. It means crafting propaganda stories and calling them narratives. Since they turned to propaganda, they have made themselves the home of the deranged.

    Here is to Meadows continuing the orchestration of this deranged enemy.

          Yes! Stephanie was knocked down when Pres. Trump went over the line –into the DMZ and met with Li’l Kim. As they walked into a conference room (inside the large gov’t building on the NK side of the line), she tried to push some of the NK people aside and allow the press to flood into the conf. room. The press stormed in -per her instructions.

          Didn’t know that she was actually hurt, but not surprised. It was a wacko moment.

      We no longer have a “free press”. Most of them are slaves to their globalist masters, since 6 giant corporations control about 90% of the “news media” in the entire world. You can thank WJC for most of the consolidation when he was corrupting the DOJ and putting a stain on the noble office of the Presidency of the U.S.A.

      There was a change in the law passed late when [Kenyan] BHO usurped the office and legalized the dissemination of propaganda to the American people by their government.

      No consequences or repercussions. Sorry, I don’t have a link.

You can hear the men shouting back angry objections! He had justification for punishing the captain, but not for publicly maligning his motives.

        At that point, the rank-and-file would no longer support the Acting Secretary. He became more of a liability to command structure than the former captain had been, He resigned, as in he was “ordered to resign”.

Many I have spoke to think it is way overblown and a total overreaction for areas of the country that are not experiencing NYC’s issues. Hearing day in and day out about what the government is doing and not one word about getting Americans back to work is infuriating on so many levels.

      Rynn;
      I think you underestimate Kayleigh. I did originally when I thought she was chosen early in the campaign mainly due to her looks. But I soon changed my mind. Her warm up speeches at the Trump rallies were very impressive. She is very well informed and has a clever mind and a sharp wit. I think she’s much tougher than you think.

      But i agree with your points about POTUS’s press conferences. The outdoor pressers with Marine One roaring in the background are best with Maestro Trump conducting them. ie Raising his hand as a signal to speak louder or just waving them off..

      The format of the Task Force sessions is not the best situation but he does score some great points at times. But the Q&A’s leave P T open to constant abuse and deliberate attempts to rile him for the next MSM soundbite of a “ranting” P T etc. His reading while looking down for many minutes is not the best way to convey his message.

      Larry David is a clever comedian but I doubt he was ever a kind and affable chap in person. But he has gone nuts watching some of the TF briefings. He said, unlike the world’s worst dictators, Trump has no positive qualities. The media is using selected clips of these briefings to drive anti Trumper’s hate to greater extremes. These comments have ramped up greatly from what I’ve seen.
