Stephanie Grisham has already revealed a nickname that White House staffers had for Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump. Now she has revealed how the couple, in her opinion, sees themselves.
“I believe he [Mr Kushner] And Ivanka thought she was a shadow president and first lady,” a former Trump aide told CNN.
Ms Grisham, who served as Donald Trump’s press secretary and Melania’s chief of staff, is currently promoting her new book, I Will Take Your Question Now: What I Saw at the Trump White House.
The memoir is full of unrestrained stories about Mr. Kushner and Ivanka Trump, whom he found cocky and abrasive.
“When I worked for the first lady in the East Wing, we all came to call Jared and Ivanka ‘interns’ because they knew the obnoxious, all in our minds,” writes Ms. Grisham. “Mrs. Trump found that nickname amusing and occasionally used it herself.”
Ms Grisham saves her harsh words for Mr Kushner, whom she refers to as “Rasputin in a slim-fitting suit”.
in new CNN Interview, the former press secretary detailed how Mr Kushner refused to play by the same rules as the rest of the White House. When Mark Meadows became chief of staff, he said, he demanded that everyone check with him before hiring anyone. But Mr Kushner reportedly “told him what he thought of her” and proceeded to hire whomever he wanted.
“He was really buoyed with power,” said Ms. Grisham. “He did what he wanted, and no one challenged him.”
The former Trump aide also said that Mr Kushner had a habit of handling policies he knew nothing about – and then, when things went wrong, he and Ivanka would disappear on vacation.
“He would dive into these areas where I know he had absolutely no expertise and claim to save the day, and then he would leave,” she said.
Granthshala Have tried reaching out to Mr. Kushner through his book publisher, but have yet to hear back.
Both Melania and Donald Trump have strongly denied Ms Grisham’s account of her time in the White House.
“The intent behind this book is clear,” the former First Lady’s Office said in a statement. “It is an attempt to redeem himself after poor performance as press secretary, failed personal relationships, and unprofessional behavior at the White House. Through mistrust and betrayal, he gains relevance and money at the expense of Mrs. Trump. want.”
The former president went even further.
“Stephanie didn’t have what it takes and it was clear from the start,” Mr Trump said in a Statement. “Now, like everyone else, he is paid by a radical leftist publisher to say bad and untrue things. It’s too bad that sled bag publishers continue to report this very boring garbage. “
