Consider it the political version of “if a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, did it really make a sound?” If a White House press secretary never gives a press briefing, did she really do the job? Yes, White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham is on her way out—or anyway, she’s headed back to the East Wing to serve as Melania Trump’s chief of staff.

As White House press secretary, Grisham spent her time going on Fox News or media outlets to the right of Fox. She put her name on statements claiming that impeachment was derailing legislative progress (when really Mitch McConnell’s Senate was derailing legislative progress) and calling for “retribution” against Rep. Adam Schiff. She was forced to backtrack after claiming that Obama aides left mean notes for the incoming Trump administration. She claimed that Donald Trump doesn’t tell lies.

Grisham’s qualifications for the job included a history of retaliating against reporters for negative coverage and having lost previous jobs for plagiarism and cheating on expense reports.

Grisham is reportedly leaving the job as part of a shake-up by new White House chief of staff Mark Meadows. Names being floated to replace her include campaign spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany; Defense Department spokeswoman Alyssa Farah may also be in line for a communications role. Except it’s not clear if the White House communications department will regain any relevance with Trump still taking the role of head spokesman and changing message on a whim.

Update: It’s going to be Kayleigh McEnany.

Who ??
Never heard a word from her on her job ,
as Trump’s press (suckretary.)
Although I did hear some disjointed crap
from her , that didn’t make much sense .
But wait , i hear there’s a new press suckretary,
and folks —you ain’t seen nothing yet .
This blond went to the oxygen sucking school
that Kellyanne went to .
And according to “those who know” ,
she could suck the chrome of a bumper.
I’ve heard from( someone), she may have
sucked a microphone down once , and
had the ( hymlick ) preformed on her by
ORiley and Ayers?
Lucky they were HANDY ?
