Stephanie Grisham served as Melania Trump’s chief of staff during the Capitol storming on January 6, 2021. She has now published a chat history on Twitter, which is intended to show the ignorance of her boss at the time.

During the dramatic events surrounding the Capitol on January 6, 2021, several of Donald Trump’s employees tried to persuade the then US President to calm the situation. Without success. Trump’s former press secretary and later his wife Melania Trump’s chief of staff, Stephanie Grisham, tried her luck with the First Lady — and was also rebuffed.

Melania Trump apparently refused to appeal against violence

Grisham shared a text message exchange Tuesday that appears to show Melania Trump very curtly dismissing her request to condemn the violence during the Capitol riots. The 45-year-old published the chat history after Cassidy Hutchinson, an ex-adviser to former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, testified before the House Committee of Inquiry into the Capitol attack and heavily incriminated Donald Trump.

In her tweet, Grisham posted an alleged screenshot of a text exchange with a person named “MT”.

“Do you want to tweet that peaceful protest is every American’s right, but that there is no place for lawlessness and violence?”

MT simply replies: “No”.

Grisham later reported to the US newspaper “Washington Examiner” that MT was Melania Trump.

“I resigned as soon as she answered,” the ex-chief of staff told the paper. In fact, Grisham, as the first White House staffer, had vacated her post on January 6, 2021, immediately after the storming of the Capitol.

Grisham also championed Hutchinson on Twitter: “Proud of Cassidy

Since leaving the Trump administration, Grisham has become a vocal critic of her former bosses Donald and Melania Trump, even stating that she needs to be “deprogrammed” after leaving the White House.
