This is pretty incredible stuff, via CNN’s Chris Cillizza:
This a real exchange that happened Monday morning between “Fox & Friends” host Ainsley Earhardt and White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham:
Earhardt: “Stephanie, when Bernie was on ‘Meet the Press’ over the weekend, Chuck Todd asked him if he was going to continue to be on the campaign trail because we keep hearing if you’re around 80 years old you are susceptible, and he is 78 years old. President Trump is 73. Will he continue to have rallies and be out there on the campaign trail?”
Grisham: “He actually just addressed this. Yes, he plans on still holding rallies. And I’ll tell you what, with our President — this man who doesn’t sleep and who I have seen work 15-16 hours a day every day — I have no problem thinking that he’s going to be just fine and just healthy.”
Just so everyone is clear on this. The press secretary of the United States was asked about a growing epidemic and its potential impact of the President. And her answer was this: “This man who doesn’t sleep and who I have seen work 15-16 hours a day every day — I have no problem thinking that he’s going to be just fine and just healthy.”
That’s not the point! That’s not even close to the point!
Not only is Grisham completely missing the point…she’s also not making a very good argument for the health of her boss.
Sometimes we can’t help but marvel at the word vomit that is unleashed from Trump administration officials. Can you not hear the things that you are saying?
