Trump’s Third Press Secretary Is A Charmer, Too: DUIs and Plagiarism

Donald Trump famously said that he was going to drain the swamp and only hire the best people, when in fact he brought the swamp with him, and his idea of “best” is clearly open to wide interpretation. His third press secretary in less than three years, Stephanie Grisham, lost one job for plagiarism and another for cheating on expense reports. Plus, she’s been arrested twice for DUI — the second time in 2015 when working for the Trump campaign. New York Times: In December 2015 in Arizona, Ms. Grisham was arrested for driving under the influence. She pleaded guilty and was fined, and in August 2016 the court ordered her into a treatment program. It was a second offense: In 2013 she was arrested for driving under the influence, speeding and driving with an invalid license. While working in public relations and writing traffic safety briefs for AAA, Grisham got a bit careless with her bookkeeping. A former AAA employee with direct knowledge of the matter said Ms. Grisham left after accusations that she filed false claims for travel and other expenses. A spokeswoman for AAA Arizona declined to discuss personnel matters. Ms. Grisham lost a subsequent job after an accusation of plagiarism. She had gone to work for an advertising agency in Arizona whose clients included a start-up called GarageFly, an online service that helps car owners find auto repair shops. While making a presentation to the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, GarageFly’s founder showed off his website. In an interview, he said he was quickly informed by a furious attendee from AAA that the website included material lifted verbatim from AAA. GarageFly’s founder said he had not known because the website was created by GarageFly’s ad agency, Mindspace. And the Mindspace employee responsible for placing the AAA material on the GarageFly website turned out to be Ms. Grisham, according to two other people involved in the matter. Ms. Grisham lost her job. The agency’s owner, Brent Shetler, confirmed Ms. Grisham’s employment but declined to discuss the reasons for her departure. But, as you know, none of this matters to Trump. All he cares about is cultish devotion. As long as that’s there, Trump doesn’t care if you go home and kill your own children and bake them in a pie. From her bosses, Ms. Grisham “gets a lot of praise for being loyal,” said David Bodney, a media lawyer in Arizona who tangled with Ms. Grisham over reporter access to public records when she worked in state government there. “But her job is to make information available,” Mr. Bodney said. “She’s now in a unique position to either serve or frustrate the public interest. Unfortunately, her tenure in Arizona does not bode well.” Nothing about this woman’s history bodes well. When she first began working for Trump as a press wrangler, passing out fast food and tracking down lost gear, she said that she was “riding it until the money runs out.” Like her predecessor, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, she’s found another vein of gold to tap and that’s what she’s doing. Nothing wrong with making money and advancing oneself, but there’s a lot wrong with compromising the essential principles and values of any given job and perverting it into something it’s not. The job of White House […]

REVEALED: Citizenship Dir. Cuccinelli Has Been Railing Against “Alien Invaders” Responsible For “Terrorism” For...

Acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Ken Cuccinelli, rose to notoriety recently when he suggested that the famous, welcoming words on the Statue of Liberty could be better phrased, “give me your tired, your poor, who can stand on their own two feet and will not become a public charge.” He didn’t arrive at that charitable notion overnight. He’s been bashing immigrants for years, calling them, “foreign invaders” responsible for “serious infectious diseases, drug running, gang violence, human trafficking, terrorism,” and he founded a group that said as much. CNN: The group, State Legislators for Legal Immigration, was established in 2007, when an immigration revamp was being hotly debated in Congress. Its founding principle was that undocumented immigration represented an invasion of the United States on par with foreign invasion that should justify invoking war powers under the Constitution — extreme rhetoric Cuccinelli has continued to use in recent years, and that has been adopted by President Donald Trump and other Republicans. – Speaking with Breitbart radio in October of last year, Cuccinelli argued that states could use “war powers” to block Central American migrants, many of whom were reportedly planning to seek asylum in the US and who’d formed a so-called caravan, from coming across the border. – “We’ve been being invaded for a long time, and so the border states clearly qualify here to utilize this power themselves. And what’s interesting is they don’t need anyone’s permission,” Cuccinelli said. “They can do it themselves. And because they’re acting under war powers, there’s no due process. They can literally just line their National Guard up with, presumably with riot gear like they would if they had a civil disturbance, and turn people back at the border. Literally, you don’t have to keep them, no catch and release, no nothing. You just point them back across the river and let them swim for it.” Wow. Put on riot gear at the border and force migrants into the water. Extreme, much? Sounds a lot like Donald Trump, when he said “treat the rocks as bullets” to the 7,000 troops he moved into place to guard against a non-existent border crisis that he manufactured in November, 2018, in order to get midterm votes. Here’s the State Legislators For Legal Immigration mission statement. – “State Legislators for Legal Immigration has been formed to serve as a unifying force to bring all levels of government together to terminate America’s illegal alien invasion from the Keystone State of Pennsylvania; to every city, community, small town, main street, front porch and back yard; across our fruited plains; and from sea to shining sea,” the group’s website read at the time, drawing from “America the Beautiful.” Demonizing “the other” is the very cornerstone of fascism. Not in the least bit surprising that it is a principle component of Cuccinelli’s worldview. That much was already apparent. Trump only hires the “best people.”
