President Donald Trump has no shortage of sycophants. One of the latest White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham, flexed her defensive muscles yesterday on Fox & Friends (aka state television).
The White House press secretary defended Trump’s recent tweet describing his critics as “human scum” and added her own comments on the matter.
White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham agrees that opponents of Donald Trump are "scum": "The people who are against him and who have been against him and working against him since the day they took office are just that. ... They deserve strong language like that." pic.twitter.com/0Gkll6DZqi— Bobby Lewis (@revrrlewis) October 24, 2019
When she was asked whether Trump regrets using the phrase “human scum,” Grisham said no.
“He shouldn’t,” she told host Brian Kilmeade. “The people who are against him and have been against him and working against him since the day they took office are just that.”

The fact he’s attacking Never Trumpers so viciously is a sign Trump fears losing Republican support, and rightfully so. https://t.co/nQSqrxYuVD

“They deserve strong language like that,” she added.
As Republican favor for Trump begins to turn in light of information regarding an alleged quid pro quo with Ukraine and Trump’s ill-advised abandonment of the Kurds, Trump tweeted, “The Never Trumper Republicans, though on respirators with not many left, are in certain ways worse and more dangerous for our Country than the Do Nothing Democrats. Watch out for them, they are human scum!”
Recently, former GOP Gov. John Kasich of Ohio said he would vote yes on impeachment if he were in the House. And Republican Rep. Francis Rooney of Florida told CNN that he was not seeking reelection as well as that he was open to impeaching Trump.
“I don’t think you can rule anything out until you know all the facts,” he said.
Sen. Mitt Romney said Trump’s decision to abandon the Kurds in Syria was “a blood stain in the annals of American history.” Similarly, Sen. Lindsey Graham called it “the biggest mistake of his presidency.”
Grisham was appointed as White House press secretary in July and has yet to hold a press briefing. Keep up the good work, Stephanie!
