After Stormy Daniels Claims Against Trump, Melania Trump Was 'Liberated,' New Book Says

Stephanie Grisham's memoir of her time in the White House "I'll Take Your Questions Now" will be published on Oct. 5.

Trump's former press secretary and Melania's former spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham is publishing a memoir of her time in the White House. I'll Take Your Questions Now will be published on Oct. 5. The title of the book seems to be referring to how Grisham controversially chose not to give any televised press briefings. A source told PEOPLE the book subtitled "What I Saw in the Trump White House," includes "a lot of stuff that has never been heard before." "She knows where all the bodies are buried and she has a shovel," the source added, calling the book "a memoir of her time in the White House in the unusual position of being the only person to serve both the president and the first lady at the same time." Grisham has had a unique position at the White House. She's the only aide to have held the following three titles simultaneously:  White House's press secretary and communications director as well as communications director for the first lady. Grisham resigned from the Trump administration after the January 6 riot on Capitol Hill. 



 

In her book, she revealed that Former President Donald Trump's secret visit to Walter Reed in 2019 was for a routine colonoscopy, reports CNN. While she does not use the term colonoscopy, it has been implied strongly. The visit which brought about weeks-long speculation about his health was a "very common procedure," she noted, during which "a patient is put under." She also mentioned that former President George W. Bush had a similar procedure while in office. But why was this kept under wraps? Apparently, Trump did not want then-Vice President Mike Pence to be in power while he was sedated. The writer pointed this out to be the reason he kept his visit private. He also "did not want to be the butt of a joke" on late-night television, she added.



 

Grisham also discusses the aftermath of Trump's alleged affairs with Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal. She wrote about Melania Trump's "anger," and her attempts to distance herself from her husband. "After the Stormy Daniels story broke and all the allegations that followed from other women, I felt that Mrs. Trump was basically unleashed," wrote Grisham. "She had always been independent from her husband, but now, as a wronged and publicly humiliated first lady, she seemed liberated to do whatever she wanted, or didn't want, to do." According to Yahoo  Melania would make subtle digs at her husband in public like excluding him from photographs, according to the book. She even handpicked an attractive aide to escort her make Trump jealous.



 

Grisham has kept a low profile since her resignation and has spent the last several months writing this book while in Kansas, a source told CNN. She joins several other Trump staffers who have been writing books about their time in the White House as well. In a statement provided to CNN, Trump said, "Too bad that sleaze bag publishers continue to report this very boring garbage. We and the MAGA movement are totally used to it. And someday in the not too distant future we will have our voice back and be treated fairly by the press." His spokeswoman, Liz Harrington, added, "This book is another pitiful attempt to cash in on the President's strength and sell lies about the Trump family." Melania Trump also slammed Grisham's book via a statement.  "The intent behind this book is obvious," Melania Trump's office said in a statement to The Washington Post. "It is an attempt to redeem herself after a poor performance as press secretary, failed personal relationships, and unprofessional behavior in the White House. Through mistruth and betrayal, she seeks to gain relevance and money at the expense of Mrs. Trump."
