CNN political commentator Ana Navarro didn’t hold back Tuesday on her assessment of Stephanie Grisham while discussing the former White House press secretary’s new tell-all book about her time in the Trump administration.
“I really can’t stand it. I find all of these, you know, late-developing conscience in people who served in the Trump campaign or the Trump administration repulsive,” Navarro said on “CNN Newsroom.”
“And look, I know we like the tea she is spilling. She is spreading gossip that I am sure we enjoy. And it’s not often that I agree with Trump supporters, but she’s got no credibility.”
Grisham, who famously failed to hold a single press briefing during her nine months as former President Donald Trump’s press secretary, has worked with the Trumps since his 2016 campaign. After leaving her post in the West Wing in April 2020, she went on to serve as first lady Melania Trump’s chief of staff. Following the U.S. Capitol Riot, she resigned Jan. 6, just weeks before Trump’s departure.
She’s been in the headlines over the past week as she promotes her book, “I’ll Take Your Questions Now: What I Saw at the Trump White House,” which contains many unflattering details about her former bosses. She has criticised the ex-president and stated that she regretted allowing his dishonesty culture. However, many see her apology as an attempt to improve her image.
“Give me a break,” Navarro said of Grisham’s Jan. 6 departure. “By then, all of America knew who [Trump]It was. It was clear that she knew his identity. According to what she says in the book she was able to identify him. He had been promoting the ‘big lie’ for two months by then ― and it took Jan. 6 for you to resign? I frankly see no redeeming quality in this woman or any of the Trump accomplices who now want to clear their names and want to make a buck.”
