White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham was reportedly roughed up Sunday after an encounter with North Korean security guards.
Grisham, whom Trump appointed as press secretary Tuesday, was allegedly roughed up as she reportedly sought to ensure that the U.S. TV camera made it into the House of Freedom, reported The Associated Press.
The incident is said to have occurred on the southern side of Panmunjom where President Donald Trump and North Korean President Kim Jong Un were meeting, and the Secret Service reportedly intervened in the struggle.
“To add to madcap day at DMZ, the North Korean security was a little overzealous, at times trying to block US reporters’ view. New WH press secretary Stephanie Grisham threw herself into it to make sure the US TV camera got into House of Freedom, and it came to body blows,” she wrote on Twitter.
Leaders who have messed with US smiling today—KJU, far from denuclearization; Xi, who in May reneged on trade promises; MBS, who claims didn’t order US-based journalist’s death, etc.— Jennifer Jacobs (@JenniferJJacobs) June 30, 2019
No one more exuberant than Trump.
"I want to thank all of the media.”
